Aw, man, that's always the way it happens!  Nothing for weeks, and then the tag changes a few hours before I get to post my photo!  :(

Doesn't Singhg5 pick the new tag?

Here's mine anyway.  I was going to cheat and take a photo of my bike with my bicycle's hand-powered air pump, but I assumed that the tag was for a hand-powered water pump.  Found one this afternoon:

Mattsz got a good one  :) - it was a tough one to get and you did not give up . 

I think it is Mattsz turn to pick a tag !

I imagined that the owner would think I was nuts when I knocked on the door and asked permission to roll my bike onto his lawn, but he was totally cool about it.

The original rules (I know, I know...) call for a new tag after, what, three days?  I prefer our method - gives more time.  Anyway, I'm happy to go with boggy's suggestion - it's so vague and interpretive that just about anybody should be able to do it.

In my town, there's a statue of the poet Edna St. Vincent Millay, who is considered by some to be a national hero - of poetry!  Ok by me, but I won't be submitting a photo of her with my bike! ;D

Yeah, mattsz definitely gets that one.  Great find.

I had to step in - The drought went on for too long.  I figured a nice, vague tag would get this party started again.

@Boggy: 

That was a good idea to wake up the thread from slumber - and a perfect way to move forward with Boggy's choice as suggested by Mattsz.

I better start looking for this 'vague national hero' or may be I can make one up ;D !

Whew!  I thought we'd have to get a picture with a hirdie girdie or circus calliope!
For this challenge I will not cross into the District of Columbia as that would be cheating in spirit.  There's a statue in every circle and park.  Plus, I don't want to get run over or arrested by the Park Police.
If I come across one in MD though, it's open season.

Here is my bike and a Canadian national hero.

Next one is your bike and a sombrero.

It is at "Rexall Place" formerly the Coliseum. They have a bunch of ads on the side of the building. The Gretzky trade is still controversial around here. I had to drive my bike up on the sidewalk to get the picture. We used to have a Molson's brewery here but they closed it down. We do have some really good microbreweries though.

Either way it's better than what I was planning for this week: running up on the sidewalk at National Harbor to get a shot with a 7 foot tall Big Bird and trying to pass him as an American hero.  Maybe to some 3 year olds  ;D

Wait. You have a 7 foot tall Big Bird near you. Why do I not know of this? This has to be on my bucket list. Where is this statue?

National Harbor is just South of DC on the Maryland side of the Potomac River, just South of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge.  It's not far from old Ft Washington.
Big Bird is out in front of the National Children's Museum.

Enfield and sombrero. 

I'm not psyched with the shot since it was at night - but since I live in a predominantly Central-American neighborhood I figured I could drive through the center of town and find one.  Does this count REdmonton?

If so... next tag is you and your Royal Enfield (or non-Enfield "if you have no Enfield") and a "Welcome to..." sign.

I see a sombrero and a Royal Enfield in that pic, so gosh darn it, it counts if I have any say!

A "welcome to..." sign should be easy.  I doubt I'll get to it though.  There's one near me for a very small town, whose name eludes me for the moment - it says, "Welcome to XXX... Please come again!"  ;D
