I thought you might be taggin' that one, Dox.

How's the Dox-tot doing?
It's the Flying Doxman....

Honestly, I was surprised I didn't see you on the way there. Also was surprised I didn't get bruced, given how long the tag sat.

Little one is good, he sleeps long enough for me to get a tag every once in a while

Not the New Tag







Got these pictures tonight chasing the previous tag.

Rules are simple for this one.

Get a picture with this officer in this town

Bonus points are given for getting the picture, but not getting a ticket.

Story behind this one:

I was coming into town and missed my turn onto SR-78 north. I saw the LEO sitting about 300 yards ahead. I turned around in a church parking lot to go back to 78. As I was doing so, I thought "I bet I am going to get pulled over because he is going to think that I am turning around because I do not want to ride by him". Sure enough as soon as I get turned around and get about 50 yards down the road, he turns on his lights and pulls me over. He told me I was doing 45 mph in a 35 mph zone. He ran all my info and came back and told me that he was going to give me a warning and that I should slow down. I asked him if I was really speeding or if he pulled me over because I had turned around (maybe a bit cheeky on my part). He said that I was really speeding and that he generally does not mess with motorcyclists. He said that I was only the 2nd bike he had ever pulled over. At that point I asked him if I could get his picture and he said OK (probably really cheeky on my part).

About 2 miles down the road, I had to pull a full panic stop and still only missed the miserable deer by about 6 feet.

This turned into real adventure alright. Needless to say the ride home in the dark was a bit slower than my ride down

Real tag up in the morning.

Once us (weekday) working stiffs get past Thursday - it looks like clear sailing for a week of lovely weather.

Great tag mpenner.

New Tag (for real this time)

New tag

For those of you that were disappointed that you did not get to ride to the Millfield Mine Disaster site, here is your chance. This is very close to the Millfield tag.

If only I was visiting my folks in Lancaster, I would be there in a heartbeat.

Someone bring it back up north.

They all say that. What a load of BS, Mark is the only officer who could say that and I "might" believe him.

I just wrote a guy for having ape hangers on his choppa (handlebars more than 15" above seat is the actual violation).

Still think so?

Mainly, he had ape hangers. I hate, hate, hate them.

But, he also had no endorsement, no helmet, and the plate was registered to a previous bike he owned, not the one he was riding. So I guess he came out of it pretty good with only the equipment ticket; plus he can tell his buddies in the choppa club what assholes the local cops are and they can all scowl a little harder when they pass by. Everyone wins.

That would have been great.

Like slapping a "Kick me" sign on the back of the resident nerd in high school.
