Did you test ride a "real" bike while you were there? Just kidding, I still have my triumph tag on my car and still have my cap.

Anyway, now that we have that out of the way. On to the next TAG. I will continue with my beer theme. I seem to have this thing about micorbrewerys lately. I think I have visited at least 20 in the last year or so.

So here is another. Down South Huntsville way.

If you are planning on doing the Western half you really ought to consider using your 250 and not the Tiger. Better tool for the job and all that.

The thought of driving a 250 all the way back from San Francisco doesn't really appeal to me. Nearly everyone says the TAT is doable on a R1200GS. I'm going in May and most of the gnarly trails in Colorado will be closed still. I'll skip north of Battle Mountain, NV and head into Oregon. Check out Crater Lake but I bet it will be all snowed in.

Beautiful day for a ride, found this little bit of scenery for the next tag.
Off Hobbs Island Rd you will find this road


Just a corner or two down that road you will see this old silo,

Harmony Park Safari

Check this place out when you get the Tag.
Could be a wild motorcycle ride.

Well I'll be, I saw some signs for that place, but had no idea what it was. I must have turned around before I reached the safari. Not sure how the animals would have liked the "potato potato" of the harley during the drive through

There will be no riding through animal parks on motorcycle for this little boy. The last time I tried that I almost got smushed.

ok, enough is enough

TAG

I hope this shows enough bike. I was too lazy to get off.



Nice road, you should have continued down it further decent pavement with lot of nice curves. I tried to get down to the river but could find a way. you will have to settle for some old barns.






And a Cowboy church.
