Anyways, found my way back to civilization, figured out where I was at, and headed home. Great day for a ride!
I use only 87 octane in my GS and haven't had any problems.

Give it more gas, if it doesn't solve the problem it will at least end the suspense.

New Tag 28 January 2012

I took the tag picture earlier today, but I encountered some technical difficulties uplining the pics from the phone. Sorry.

Anyways, this is the tag:



The next four shots are the clues:





WARNING DANGER WARNING
To get to the actual tag, one must cross the spring mentioned in the above clues.

Grabbed this afternoon!

Yorktown Battlefield tour road is where this one is. About 3 minutes from where I work. Small stream crossing to get to it, but nothing to worry about.

New tag incoming soon!!

Pretty funny BigRosey, I was on my way there, also on a white f800 with hard cases when I got a call from a friend and headed back the other way for a ride down route 5. Would have been a pretty funny Bruce pic. Glad you grabbed it for thewhite F800 club!

New Tag

Unfortunately I'm not going to get away from work as soon as I had planned...so I don't have a picture with my F8 in it..but if I was a bettin' man...and since I have the mantle at the moment...

Freedom Park (Williamsburg area and outstanding Mountain Biking) is what my tag is/was going to be. So if the Tag-o-rama board of directors would approve..I would consider any picture of the Freedom Park sign with the picture taker's moto in it acceptable.

It's too nice out to delay the fun.

Cheers!

You still have time to place a Tag. Poopy Peanut (36 hrs too place a tag) rule doesn't come in to play until after midnight!

Naawww, you earned the PRIVILIGE to post the next tag, albeit within 36 hours. So, take the long way home!
