    Good to have some clarifications on what you would have liked on the cover. Let me begin by telling you that.....................
    ...............
    ...................
    ......................
    ..........................In creative arts, you can really abstract or go with the mantra, what looks good is good. Mindful it is, but only the right side of the brain.
    @sunny: shantam paapam. I didnt mean it that way man. I was pointing out the characteristics of what makes a picture interesting with those as examples only. Its definitely good that xbhp covers arent run of the mill crowd pleasers but Im saying that perhaps it can be made more interesting considering the mag's treatment as a collectors' item. The 2nd and 3rd covers felt more like shock value than something truly captivating. I'll keep mum on this for now....its hard to put some things in words. + Im sure theres a lot more you guys have in mind than anthropomorph bikes. ;p

    As for that last comment, I tend to mix up a bit of both sides...perhaps why Im making this fuss.

    Curious about my avatar? I had a good laugh at that pic....some joke pic posted on the funny pics thread....cycle with rxz tank and panels (I think)...with a bent plumbing pipe fitted as exhaust! I liked it so much I put it up as my av. + Co-incidentally, its somewhat fitting because I graduated from cycles to bikes a bit recently and rather half hartedly......torn between cycle and bike.

      This is what we call subjectivity or trying too hard.

      Fuss, who said you were causing a fuss?
      Jokes apart, the issue is here, so get your copy and gives us another dose of that 'fuss' .



      @all:
      Here is a video:

              I don't know if Sunny and the publishing team read my earlier post regarding the issue of poster-calendar with the magazine. It may be too late for the calendar to be issued since the next issue will be out only in the first week of April 2011. Yet, it might serve the purpose of having one xBhp wall poster in our bedroom .

              @Sunny & xBhp Magazine team: thankyou for the coverage of the Shillong Stunt Show for the unpriviledge Children. We will make sure we keep sending the community pics & events for every bi-monthly issue.

                Thats a nice looking issue.
                And the shade of Red is just spot on.
                Sunny:- A suggestion:- You have already created such work wherein The human body and the headlight of a bike comes together and create a wonderful art. But we have seen it couple of times now.
                The idea is superb. No Doubt. But it needs some changes now.
                For example: you can go for completly opposite to what we see here right now.
                i.e: Human face on a Bike instead of it's Headlight.

                Also regarding poster:- Rather then going for the usual run of the mill kind of posters, consider the pics clicked by own very own xBhp-ians. Pick up the pics from the forum randomly and create a poster and supply with the mag. It will create much better connection.

                And keep up the great work. And continue to make us proud.

                          Thats what I was thinking too. Few pics can be merged together and use them for the poster. xBhp already has tons of pic to choose from its database. But this looks like an extra work for the magazine team.

                            The next logical thing to follow would be a "BEST PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST" and the winning snap would be featured as a POSTER for the upcoming xBhp Mag ! ... what say?

                              In the magazine, my letter was chosen as the best for the ''How has xBhp helped you?'' title. I am Nahush Bhat

                              Was wondering how you guys will go about giving me the prize
                              D'oh!

                                could be a good idea for the bimonthly issues. Motographers will have to get busy with the cams.
