Polar Bear Grand Tour - Best Pictures of the 2012-2013 Season

By Walter Kern

The Polar Bear Grand Tour consists of 550 motorcycle riders who ride their motorcycles throughout the winter. They ride the Polar Bear Grand Tour throughout the winter season each Sunday to points within NJ, NY, PA, CT, and DE. These polar bear riders have nothing to do with the other polar bears who are often found in the water in groups for special occasions.

We present here a gallery of the best Polar Bear Grand Tour motorcycle pictures for the 2012-2013 riding season. My definition of "best" is probably different from yours. I just looked at the more than 400 pictures taken during the season and picked what I liked best -- whatever caught my eye or I thought was different or offbeat. The pictures are ordered by run. Not all runs have a best picture. Most of these pictures were taken by guest photographers since I spent almost the entire season in Florida. I did do all the processing of the pictures. Guest photographers included Dave Thompson, John Zerbe, and Gary Rosen. Dave supplied pictures for almost every ride. Thanks guys for your assistance. -- Walter Kern
