I have Fast Dates calendars in my garage going back to 1996. So you could say I'm a fan of the product and (to the dismay of my feminist friends) of the genre. My rationale is that these calendars feature amazing motorcycles that just happen to be in the vicinity of beautiful women. However, this year - and maybe even to some degree last year, too - the women are seemingly a bit on the slutty side - and not in the good way. I know I'm venturing into subjective waters, but when one can see a "pubic tattoo" that even a skimpy bikini should cover the result is a calendar that Mom won't be happy with. If your garage is a gathering point because of your motorcycles and the neighborhood kids come running when you lift the door, the 2010 calendar is likely one that the mothers of those kids won't be happy with. I'll assume most people - even moms - are happy/OK with a beautiful woman in a sexy bikini, but like "truck nuts" hanging from a truck bumper (unfortunately quite popular here in Texas) nobody wants to explain to a 10yr old boy why that woman on the motorcycle has a 4-leaf clover right next to her privates.

I bought the 2010 Superbike Calender recently and I am VERY disappointed. I bought the 2008 and 2009 calender and I liked them. My main issue is with the quality of the models used in the 2010 calender.
in 2008 and 2009 all the girls are either smoking hot or I can at least understand why somebody else would think so.
There are several months in the 2010 where several women and men I have shown the picture unanimously said they had no business in the calender.

January: She is doughy and is not in shape, maybe that is why she is wearing pants and not a bikini. Why even advertise a calender as "Swimsuit" but have the first month wearing pants?

March: Straight UGLY. her face is gross and the photographer should not have let her wear pink. This is the first image I showed my friends and no one thought she was the least bit attractive. I looked her up online to see if she was maybe taken in bad lighting, but I
could find ZERO flattering pictures of her. The description must be a typo. "Adorable?" she is scowling.

April: She looks like a post-op transvestite. Her bone structure is very masculine. shoulders are way too broad and you fixate on them immediately

June: She is greasy and her hair looks filthy. Oil goes on the breasts and legs, not the face

The best image is probably December, but when compared to ANY image from 2009 it doesnt come close. They are just standing there, there is no motion or implied sexuality, its boring.

I have no plans on buying this calender next year. I hope they will change their business practices and hire some attractive models next year,

I would ask for a refund, but i bought it on amazon, so the refund wont be coming from Fastdates.

I was very impressed with the last 2 years and it was a shock to see it go downhill so badly this year.
