New Tag. Get us a picture of the "Welcome to" sign for the state next door to your home state. Clear?

The only listing/reference to one I could find was at Atlantic and Millbrook. Other than the Mexican restaurants, etc., the only thing I could find in there was something called Latin Tax Service or similar.

Oh well. I was trying to find something with "Memorial" in it as a followup and the one I went looking for on that fell through too.. It's been about a 50/50 fail rate tagging this weekend.

Edit: In retrospect, I wonder if it was part of the Mexican restaurant???

Nah, it's fine. State line is about 60 miles. I'll get it if no one else does in the next few days/weekend.

I took a look at that pic and thought to myself "that KLR is just too clean"

I bet it won't be next time we see it.

Brown Mountain .. well .. you see ..

.. the story goes something like this ..

we roll into the area .. and hit Maple Sally Road .. and a bunch of single track off of Maple Sally Road .. some of the toughest stuff I have ever been through on that pig of a bike (said with love) fully loaded with panniers .. we did some "forest exploring" to get around log jambs and fallen trees .. can't wait to get the gopro footage I took while we were in there ..



.. so instead of going over to Brown Mountain .. we go to this place called Richland Creek Road .. holy moly .. I had two really gnarly crashes there .. resulting in:

(1) .. the need for a new set of handle bars .. second set in about six weeks (I'm getting good at bending these things) ..

(2) .. the need to remount my left side pannier .. blew out two mounts points and just about tore off the tubes mounted under the panniers ..

(3) .. the need to disassemble the front forks to see what the heck I bent/tweeked that has the upper end and controls pointing about 4 degrees to port .. lol .. hope it's just the fork brace and fork clamps .. it's still solid though and tracking without any wobble down the highway on the 3 hour ride home .. so up on the lift tomorrow ..

.. pretty sure I don't need x-rays on my leg, but it's sure to be one really kewl looking shade of purple in about two days .. lol ..

.. we never made it to Brown Mountain OHV though .. we did have one helluva great day and I'll be back .. without panniers though ..


(edit) .. at about the time you posted that shot we had just gotten out of Richland Creek and were looking for food ..
(edit again) .. so to make it legal .. I'll jump on the bike and go over to a local ORV and take a snap .. but tag away as you see fit ..

Does it have to be a state or federal ORV area? Can a privately run one like Busco beach work?
