Digiamo, just for the record, I wasn't insulting the drop. Hell, I've dropped tags in some crappy locations before just to taunt the weak and challenge the go-getters. I used to spend a lot of time in Tampa for work, and occasionally took the motorcycle instead of flying. I gave up though, as I didn't find the riding in South Tampa enjoyable, nor the slab trip down there. From where I am located, any trip to Florida is long, straight, and downright boring. With limited time these days, I'm only going to make a multi-state run if the ride really entices me. I've somehow become that guy who has to choose his ride time wisely. :(

A non-destination site often does best when the local taggers get involved and move it around in small increments. Eventually someone will swoop in for a long haul, and everyone stays happy while it moves.

Winter is coming to an end, and everyone is at their bitchiest this time of year. Give it a few weeks and Cosmo will be on the road. ;)

Of course, wb57 could loan me his Connie and I'll go rescue Cosmo this weekend. Slab might not be so boring with a Connie. :cool:

Thanks RD, for your angle on this. Duely noted and appreciated.

And thanks RC for helping out.

I almost said "sure", but quickly thought better of it. Then I'd have to, you know, drive the 4.5 miles to work or drag one of the other bikes out.

Slab still is boring, but it goes by a bit more quickly these days.

I just love how folks can just come together in a crisis such as this.
Good feedback is great but even the critics have a "bump" effect on the thread so that's good too.
Here we have folks "almost" lending their bikes to get this game rolling again.
Others will maybe get it on a possible trip through Florida.

We are on a thread bumping roll here

I feel so good about this change of heart that I am ready to entertain more criticism of the current drop.

Oh! For the record, when I grabbed Cosmo in NC (NA-TOR central) back in December it was sitting at a really nice drop location for about three weeks.

so there and FYYFF's

Can't remember that, but if it was at the coast, it makes sense. Sort of. For anyone not within a couple hours of the coast, it's an arrow straight, slab ride, for the most part. But, yeah, you're right.

It was in Colletteville, NC, the middle of the golden NC riding country.

It's in the middle of great roads, but it's also in the middle of the part of the state where folks tend to hibernate in the winter...
I missed that one completely. My son is 30 miles from there. That would have been a good ride.

It wasn't yet winter when a clown from NYC came by and scooped it up after it sat for three weeks.
