I don't buy that excuse. 9 out of 10 tags are easy as pie to figure out. If they are difficult, people quickly add hints. You folks just don't like the North, and are deathly afraid you might get Bruced.

Maybe now that you have a street bike, Wayne, you will see the fun in getting a Bruce. There are some great roads in Warren, Sussex, etc. There are some great historic landmarks, architectural masterpieces, and even silly muffler men up here in the North.

If you want to talk about local knowledge, try the Pine Barrens TOR!

No need to go that far North for great riding... Another 125 mile loop today while out tagging. Once the weather cools down and the shoobies leave the shore it will be much nicer!

I can't believe you guys didn't beat me to this one - I sat in the parking lot for about 45 minutes dicking around with my blackberry and finally just gave up on it and came home

New tag

Cause I know you all want to go out for a nice evening or early morning ride...

New Tag:

For those of you who like the dirty way:


For those of you who like shiny things:


Hints:
It's the same place, just with two driveways. One is on a dirt road, one is on a paved road.
I'm so lazy it's scary - (which means I haven't left long valley)
This facility recently closed their satellite facilities in China due to rampant cheating

P.S. Nice Bruce RKevin..but you're on the wrong side
Thanks Vin.

Nice tag.

I kind of figured it was in Phillipsburg.

I wanted to go for it, but got stuck in a rain storm down here that slowed me down.

Good clues, but I absolutely hate photoshopping of "Money Shots". How are we to reproduce them? A little composing of the photo usually will cover up enough of the name to keep it fun. Yuck!

So, for those of you who hate photoshopping as much as I do, here's the GPS coordinates. Don't use them if you don't want the help....

N 40 45.851 W 74 50.794

p.s., nice get in Phillipsburg! And nice area to ride around in! When are we gonna see that Brutale?

Whoa ... too much cryin

There is a pretty good clue in the picture, in fact if you search it with google the first returned entry will take you there. Don't know what you southerners are used to but most of us northerners could find it
