Reader’s Photo Contest Winner - Ian Morgan

Written by  February 28, 2006

As you recall, in our January 2006 issue, we held a Reader's Photo Contest, where we asked you to submit your favorite winter motorcycle photograph for a chance to win a Cycle Connections prize pack.

On February 1, 2006 the Cycle Connections staff went through all photos that were submitted and voted on the photo they thought was the best. Now that everyone’s votes have been tallied, we are proud to announce the winner of our first photo contest.

Not only is the picture from overseas, but so is our winner. Ian Morgan from England is our winner with the picture of his Yamaha Venture, The Raven. The road in the picture is the A22 in South East England. Although Ian lives in England, his riding territory is pretty impressive. He says he tries to “ride all over” and I think he has done a damn fine job. This past summer he rode 9,000 miles in 18 days in the U.S., which completed his tour of all of 50 states including Hawaii and Alaska.

Ian has also ridden in all of Western Europe and a bit of Eastern Europe. He has two more rides planned this year in the US before shipping his bike to southern Spain in preparation for riding across Africa in 2007.

Ian will receive a Cycle Connections prize pack, which includes a Cycle Connections T-shirt and Koozie as well as a very cool hoodie provided by Jack Miller American Thunder V-Twin.

Congratulations Ian!

Make sure to watch for our upcoming reader’s survey and another reader’s contest for even more great prizes!
