OK, it's no lightweight, but it's not THAT heavy. 700lbs (non-ABS) with nearly 8 gallons in the tank for a REAL 300+ mile range and the comfort to actually use all 300 miles without stopping. I've not ridden anything I like better, yet... and the ST was last redesigned 5 years ago. Oh, and the price of admission is a lot less than most comparable bikes.

For comparison:

FJR1300 = 640 lbs, wet
Concours 14 = 670 lbs, wet
1200LT (light truck) = 800 lbs, wet
1200GS = 560 lbs, wet - and thats an OFF road bike...
And it's certainly no Goldwing at 880-920 lbs

Anybody want to flame me for writing off the TAG topic, feel free...

You thought it was so funny you posted it twice?

And FYI, the propane goes in one side bag, grill pops up out of the top bag.
That leaves the other side bag for large can of woop-ass....

Alright, I know some of you resourceful types have already figured this out, but I'll elaborate on one of the hints already given.

American Tower site #81680

If that doesn't get it for you, then please employ Meef's services as "Tag Tutor"... I hear his hourly rate is pretty reasonable.

I had to snag this before my vacation!



Adelsberger Rd. in Marysville.
It was about here, but right at the dead end:

http://maps.yahoo.com/print?ard=1&v3...0OH%2C%2043040

I'm impressed mchester, that was a full mile of gravel/graded road!!!!!

Here's the tower:




On the way out:




Isn't it funny when you're going to get the tag, and on the way home with it, everyone on a motorcycle is the enemy?!?!? It makes my pulse quicken so bad! I was getting on 33 off 270 and saw this dude on a bike and thought, aw shit, someone is already headed there! They got off at Post road and I went by and just flew down to 42 and hit Industrial Parkway from there.......it was so funny!!!

I thought DevilDog beat me to it too:





Just kiddin' buddy!!!

And here is the next tag before anyone starts cryin'!



All the clues are in the pic, so start investigating cause I am leaving sunday morning for 2 weeks and I am not giving any more hints!

I am pretty neutral about the Buckeyes, but I saw this one day and figured some of you die hard fans would jump all over it.

Good luck!!!

Can I get a clarification here from the boss: are gravel roads okay? That opens a whole new world. I was under the impression this was limited to paved roads for the fah-ginas among us.

I was under that same impression with the exception of a gravel parking lot or a few yards off the pavement. We just added the county & township roads as long as they were paved.

It will eliminate our road riders like BiffR and whoever else we have. I would have included Mchester but I guess he doesn't mind some gravel.

Let's keep it pavement for awhile until we see a need to add gravel.

Jumpin Jesus on a F@cking stick. Just be reasonable. The last tag was on a gravel road in "plain" (nice clue) sight of a SR. This thing is self regulating. If you take it too far you will catch shit and you have to give up your turn. Goonie is the final judge, but don't over complicate.
