Laugh NY Metro Dirt Tag-O-Rama

O.K., folks, enough whining and nastiness. How about a real Advrider tag game? With a dirt road, lake, water crossing, or even a mud hole involved? The main restriction will be that the tag be legally accessible and findable, within 160 miles of the Empire State Building. If not, the tag dropper will have to replace the tag.
The tag game will reward people who ride, not argue about rules.

So, in that vein, here are the relatively simple rules of this game, which will work in the winter as well as the summer:

1. Get a tag by posting a photo that reproduces the tag dropper's photo to his or her satisfaction. Must have your bike in the photo. Fully in the photo. Trailers/pickups are allowed for the boring highway asphalt trips to the dirt roads, but you are cheating yourself out of the suffering we all love! You'll know you were first, and haven't been "Bruced", because you will have found the mascot and taken it with you.

2. In order to eliminate technology, you have plenty of time to get home to post, if you don't have a smart phone or a tablet. Don't abuse this. You should post within a few hours, so that others are not on wild goose chases going for the tag and finding out the mascot is gone.

3. If the mascot is lost, stolen, etc., then the 1st person to post can pick a new mascot. Hopefully, that won't happen anymore.

That's it for rules....

YES MASCOTS ARE ALLOWED!!! (like cute little rubber ducks, or ugly penguins!)

too thin

By the way, I'd pass the tag to you, rthuey, except that it's obvious from the photo that you didn't ride there. The fellow on the bike is way too thin to be you!

And, Skip, you couldn't have possibly ridden your 950 Adventure there, because it is clearly collecting moss between the spokes. And obvious sign of inactivity and non-riding.

Either a better job of doing the ride, or a better job with photo shop please!

Actually, the waterskiing shot is pretty good, Toecutter, so I'll give you the tag!

yea I wasn't going to spend more then 5 mins doing the chop job. Stamping all that grass outta the spokes takes time, plus I think it adds to the awesomeness of it all !!!

here we go again with the rules already. "didn't see where we had to have a certain figure for this thread"

i believe skip's moss in his spokes is from the water crossing. there was a lot around the edges where we were, but apparently that is an unwritten rule as well.

actually i did ride there with my nephew riding bitch. glad you noticed the family resemblance.
we were there so i could teach him how to ride. those of you that know and ridden with me have seen my bike. i had a choice that afternoon. in fact immediately after that shot was taken.
neither the bike or the neph could swim.
that was kind of a first posting honor i was giving him






tanks for screwing it up doc

I was thinking about trying to get in on this game since it's starting to spend some time in my neighborhood, but it has suddenly turned into the gayest thread on ADVrider with grown men arguing over the color of a rubber ducky?!?!?! Really??? Just thought I might also point out that there is no mention of the ducks race, color, or creed in the rules in post 1 . Sorry, but somebody should tell you

These are the ducks of our lives

The Saga continues

I have been contacted by Docgonzo, He has admitted to being there & leaving the other duck as a "Bruce Prize".
He wants to claim the tag...but it's as simple as rule #1
I don't know whether he was banned before grabbing the duck or not
He did not say how long he has online suspension for
Docgonzo has NOT posted any photo's
I say BuzzBombers tag is GOOD

We continue to play with this duck until Docgonzo decides to change them out, or not
Who knows when he'll be allowed back...if even ever

The tag game will reward people who ride, not argue about rules. Your photo just has to document the ride. Whether you did it before, during, or after the tagger's ride. As long as it's the same spot as the tagger's, with your bike in it. And the tag dropper is satisfied.

So, in that vein, here are the relatively simple rules of this game, which will work in the winter as well as the summer:

1. Get a tag by posting a photo that reproduces the tag dropper's photo to his or her satisfaction. Must have your bike in the photo. Fully in the photo. No trailers. Yes, that means that if you pre-anticipated the ride, by knowing the tagger's habits, knowing the place, or having been there before, it counts if the dropper is satisfied.

And, can we hear a drum roll,
MASCOTS ARE ALLOWED!!! (like cute little rubber ducks, or ugly penguins!)
P.S. Nice Bruce Haystack

Are you fucking kidding me? You leave a duck as a bruce prize? And you don't post what you're up to? Sorry Docgonzo - but that's really bad form.

You're making it very hard to follow this and honestly if this doesn't clear up soon, I'll stop following this thread. I'll give it a day or so but I'm really confused and frustrated. I thought this was supposed to be about riding, not your personal Hatfeild vs McCoy.

Oh by the way, the BEST way to play this game is to grab the tag and re-tag in the same day - not sit on it and figure out where I want to put it for a week. Personally, I ALWAYS try to post the old tag and the new tag in the same posting. It's just easier that way.

Lets keep this fun, I'm begging ya.
