............I, for one, will remain a Tag Purist. I staunchly refuse to chase and post tags any way except the old fashioned way.

After I take the picture of my bike at the tag I ride like a scalded assed banshee back to the ranch, run with my camera clenched in my fist to the computer, and, while still wearing my helmet and riding gear (ever try typing with riding gloves on ), breathlessly upload the pic to Smugmug then post it on ADV.

It's just so much more of a rush picturing some other Tag pshyco racing back home trying not to be Bruced.

I have personal computer that knows it all. My wife. I can just send the pic from my phone and let her post it up. LOL
Trust me a laptop would have been cheaper, and it has a mute button.



Sorry honey if you read this.

I dig it. You should have seen me pushing my bike back into the garage, wondering if I would get bruced in between pushing a bike 100 yards and pushing it back 100 yards. Talk about a nerve-wracking tag!!!

Kay....if I would have known that you were going to find it I would have left a far more sweet greeting.




Ah the memories of tags gone by.

Looks like you found a break in the rain.
So where is it?

The Belleville Locks and Dam at Reedsville on SR 124 along the Ohio River.


I pulled into the parking lot and was puttering around to see where dox had taken his picture from when I hear, "Hey!".
I turned the KLR around and was looking at this big, rough looking, biker dude when he asks, "You Just GO!?" I nodded from behind my face shield and he says, "I'm dox!"

I reached out and we shook hands and both laughed. He had seen me riding on Route 50 and thought it had to be me going to the tag and turned around to see if he could catch me at the locks.

We talked for a long time and then parted ways and I have to say it was nice to meet you dox...............

He looks nothing like his avatar, and there are four too many fingers in that wave. We are still giving the finger, right?

Dox and I were wondering how long it would take you to go get it. We had figured you would have gone for it yesterday
