Tag???

So this is so near by and a few of us were there today, if only we knew.

I missed jumper here....


but caught up with him here...


Hey I saw a chopper today too....



I made it by ten of the old (or was the nine old and one new) TAG points today. I rode to a few of them with Jumper, it was good to ride with you today, and we met a few other adventures along the way.

Funny story, we were at lunch and Jumper pulls out his netbook and said somthing about checking to see if Texxx had posted yet. No conection at our lunch location, so we head down the road and find a hot spot (Mc D's) and what do you know. We see that Texx has posted and we think we might be verry close to the location. So on down the road and find our way to it and another bike is already there. It is wannabe1 and his wife. They had already gotten their shot of the tag point so we let them get on their way and we went on in to get our photo at the tag point. Just as we are getting ready to go, we hear another bike coming up the road, it's Yankee Dog and he was not so happy to see us there already. We also told him about the other riders that had already been there and gone. He said something about finding a connection near by and maybe getting his posted first, but I guess Yankee Dog did not get hooked up to post his photo before it was already gone. I hope he made it home alright and that everybody else had a good day of riding. I know I did, what was that about 360 miles today and a few too many of those were down some gravel roads...

I had just got done WASHING the bike and getting ready for the ride I have to go on tomorrow, when my wife said that she saw the posting on the web and thought I might want to check them out.

OK, do I really need to go back out tonight to get this one? It is only 30 or 40 miles away and it is only 10:45. Wait it is that late already, I need to go to bed, so I can get up and go tomorrow. Oh well I hope one of you has better luck getting the tag.

I'll be back in the game Sunday!

So somebody needs to go get this one....

You need to take a picture like this

It is cool with the locals to. There was two Policeman and one park ranger looking at me like I was crazy as I laid on my back to get this shot just 6 miles from the house.

Yes, bring on the new tag! I actually have a day I can go looking for one that isn't in my back yard!

Hey Spikester, Lasercustoms and I are just on the Florence side of Shoals Creek bridge. If you're interested we may all be able to track it down.

My clutch cable's fixed, I'm at work with the bike......

But now I realize that the wife has the camera at the beach this week.


Wait a minute.....the wife and kids are gone, Volunteer1 said something about adult beverages

Now if I could just be sure the ol' alarm clock would do it's job at 4am.
