Following the less than serious ‘good looking girls wanted’, and ‘good looking boys’…
Well without wanting to start a sexist riot…Finding 12 good looking girls on LB is NOT hard. Why is doing a charity calender such a funny idea?
It doesn’t need to be pornographic or even close. More suggestive than anything, with an air of ‘tongue in cheek’.
We also have some members with stunning bikes to use as props. If the WI can do it…
I used to do a bit of amateur photography myself, but I refuse to believe we haven’t got a genuine pro photographer on here. I can imagine a thread dedicated to suggested poses would get us enough ideas to make it cleverly erotic without being revealing.
There are 17,000 members on here, if only 25% of them are active, and only 25% of those bought a calendar at a profit of only 50p a go, that’s £500 quid from here alone.
I am fairly convinced that places like Loomies, the H cafe, The Ace to name but three would be only too happy to pimp a bikers calendar, given that it’s for such a good cause, and the ‘models’ are local bikers rather than hired plastic Nuts models. I could see outlets like that making a fair bit in calender sales.
Then there’s the other forums, events, the OMC…
I’m thinking cheeky shots, nothing lurid, sexy more than tacky. The girl next door look, and a front page that offers much but actually delivers little. Avague idea of the sort of thing:
Rather than waiting for our female members to volunteer, a voting system by the guys might be the way to go.
Mrs Scorch is a professional illustrator/digital illustrator, and I know she would be happy to deal with formatting the layout.
If we don’t have someone on here with a connection in the printing industry I’ll eat my own leathers.
I also think that if the Ace was used as a backdrop for any of the pictures, it would have international appeal. I know from experience that American bikers lap up anything connected with the Ace, its unusual to watch a U.S. bike program on cable without some mention of the legendary Ace Cafe.
We could pimp it on Amazon, Ebay, and even sites like Ghost Bikes would surely want to support this?
Logistically I think it’s probably too late this year, but with a bit of planning and enthusiasm I reckon it could bring in a bucket of cash for the LAA next Christmas.
Finally, I’m not forgetting the other half of the equation. I see this working for both sexes, although I’m not qualified to make suggestions in that department. I think everything above applies if you swap the word girls for guys.
Other than making the suggestion, I’m not sure I’m qualified to offer any other input, what it needs is a couple of motivated, outgoing individuals to get this off the ground.
