Want adventure? Ride through downtown Niagara Falls. Set your suspension for "Urban" as in potholes etc. Watch for two legged animals and four wheeled things jumping out in front of you..

If you want, go to lewiston for some good eating establishments or go around the outside of grand Island and look at the homes instead of blasting up the 190.

I'll be in N. Falls around May 30, but on my touring Bicycle, that probably wouldn't work huh ?

After this little bike ride Im going to do some real tagging!

Hmmm...12 days of riding season gone.

I know you mentioned moving this, David...and perhaps it's becoming time?


BTW...is there a map for this game?

I grabbed the tag on goat island quite a while ago on a Sunday morning. Traffic was light to non-existent. Maybe I'll run up on Sunday if it cools off or it's raining. I really don't tag anymore either.

Hee We go!

Rule # 6 No whining

New Tag in the EAST

Money Shot!


Hint


You can only get there from route 30 or 206. Both are really good rides. OR the one behind the bridge, but I don't know where it goes.

Close to here.

This was a 5:30 am coffee run. We took 30 to Malone. What a ride.


My original tag said temporary. I don't want to break the game. I will glad accept either tag to keep the game going.

This was Friday Night. They gave me a handicapped campsite. It was great. I was not the only motorcycle in the campground.



I cooked a Porter house on the wood along with potatoes, onions, green beans and mushrooms wrapped in foil with butter. They even delivered the wood to my site. Bear Spring campground.

What a weekend.

Tag on !

David

Edit, look at the railing. Its laminated and bent around the posts. Best Bridge I ever was on.

Dave, sounds like that route 30 ride was a good time. I bet some eastern NY taggers will pick this up and run with it.

It finally comes East a bit. I know EXACTLY where it is (even before seeing the pictures). ... And I won't be able to get out on the bike this week.

Jeez, I was just in Downsville Sunday. You must of been there too. I don't recall seeing a red R. I was riding my 950 SMR and my buddy was riding my green ZX10R. We rode both 30 and 206. 30 is nice at >posted speed. Road surfaces are a bit rough.

Thanks!

It's East!

Glad to see it within striking distance, 30 is a great ride, especially around the reservoir.

So, it is from the other side and too busy to park in the way



Really, it did have traffic... and not just me

Quick pick up

Nice to see it moving.

I would like to modify the rules.
#6 no whining, JUST PLAY THE EFFIN GAME!

Next?
You folks in the east seem to get it.
I may come and take it back west any time.

Here we are...



This is their sign across the street. Either is acceptable for the tag.



It is well worth a visit, just bring cash. I wonder if they would let me put a tent up by the pond... I am sure it would work out for them They have an awesome selection of beer, and the food is good to boot!

Not much action near Niagara falls either

Is it in Zip 12461? THAT is a ride from here 320+ miles. I would love to pitch my tent there and have a couple beers, wonder out the door and go to sleep. (I am a home brewer/beer snob)

TAG ON!

Oh man I actually know where that is, my buddy lives just up the road. Sadly I doubt I will have time to get it before someone else does.
