Forgiven AL: we don't expect you to eat ice cream before lunch time.

But if you did pursue the ice cram challenge, we'd expect the flavour to be "Moka".

Guilty your honour

God worked against me, got ready to head out, camera in hand, then the heavens opened up and a torrential down pour, no way l could take the Moke, then of course came the 3 hour O J drama from Nevada, no way l could miss that, then the finish of the Blue Jay game in Boston more delay,then two of my buddies picked me up for our monthly BSCC of Canada dinner meeting-

Wil try to-day

Your hour is up, AL. Did the ice cream not last as far as the park for you too?

The closest ice cream anything is 12 miles from me in Port Colborne, Ontario, an old style DQ, could everyone just wait an hour and l will be back with a picture?

Scott,

Ya done good, bud. You didn't kill it.

We just have a bunch of lazy drivers on our hands.

There are literally many thousands of posts on the Harley forum. It's quite incredible actually.
Here's just one link (of many) to get your creative juices flowing:

Similar thread on Harley forum

C'mon folks !

Next challenge:
A picture of your Mini in a park with ice cream (cone, cup, whatever...)

Alex is right.  I just wanted to point it out.  On the Harley forum, often I'll see 2 (maybe even 3) similar pix on the same day, but it's only the first one meeting the criterial that counts and that person gets to set the next challenge.  After all, some of these guys might ride 4 or 5 hours to get a picture.  As the thread evolves, invariably some challenges are just that - true challenges, so one should post their well earned photos.

It's early on in the first round of pix and I wanted to reiterate, just so we're all on the same page here. (rules detailed in initial post)

Also, ignoring advice and other modified rules from less than savoury sources  is always a good idea  (I am not referring to Alex, who is always a good source)

Only a couple of miles from the house. I took the longer route to get there though. Figured a frosty cold Coke was right for a hot southern day.

Hello from San Francisco! I hope an actual Guinness counts!

Since it is a hot, summer day here (sorry, Southern Hemisphere), treat a friend or significant other to some ice cream!

Lol....over here, for some reason, many people think anything Irish is something special...
Should see st.patrick's day......pathetic.  I just remind people that St.Patrick was actually English

OK...a picture in front of any drinking establishment......but the Guinness logo still applies.....my favourite Irish contribution to the world

You could always drive next door and get the real McCoy Alex.  Show us how it's done.
