Haha!
That would be about the easiest tag ever for me....
But riding has come to a halt here due to winter finally having arrived with snow and ice and cold and all that crap.

Our EU friends have been absent from this Global game, so I figured this would give them an easy tag.

Now *that's* pushing the "creativity" envelope. Smart car IS a name.

Then you definitely need to get out this way and ride at least once. AND be the designated far east NC tag guy. Seems like tags that get dropped towards the coast can sit for a while.

I've never been absent! My last grab was three tags before or so.
And I'm saying that because I AM your EU friends...
I don't think there's anyone else from Europe playing here.

However, as I said, I think there will be no riding for me in the next weeks/months.

And I'm glad you're here! Sorry you're stuck in the snow/ice. With ADV, you never know who will be lurking about.

When I first found this thread I read thru some of the earlier posts and it seemed like there were a few more EU peeps playing. Considering the current tag, stud up and go for it! First grab is likely very, very close to the bike right now... Wouldn't be the first garage shot tag I've seen.

Paging jrjoyce2007 to the phone....there is a Smart car in our parking lot at work everyday.

Sent from the voices in my head and transcribed by their drinking buddy...

Thx.

Unfortunately, neither do I have a Smart, nor a garage... So this ain't gonna work.
I'm also living a bit in the mountains and there is no way I could get my bike up the steep gravel driveway to the street with snow and ice. And even if I did, the road down to the valley would be too dangerous to ride in these conditions.
Plus I don't wanna screw the Viffer with all the bloody salt on the roads.
Winter = no riding in Valais. Gotta be patient for a couple months. It was hard for me to accept that as well, in Berlin I rode through winter all those years. But after a dozen of near crashes and countless times of dropping the bike and swearing in my helmet while freezing to death I learned my lesson.

Yep. But not too many people in the north drive these as they aren't very productive in the snow. So I'll wait till something more globally friendly comes up. Also its 9 degrees F out this morning so the bike will stay in the garage.

Well take a smart car for a test drive to your garage and snap the picture then take the car back.

Problem solved.
