What tie?

If it means getting it out of the snow belt I say go for it. All thats required for a drop is a picture with a bike - right?

I think it would be a slap in the face to those who have carried it ON A BIKE all over the continent. Maybe, though, we need to change the name of it to the "fly somewhere and place a tag Tag-0-Rama".

It IS a motorcycle venue is it not?

Personally, I like that it only travels by bike. For me it ads a kind of hard earned luster to the story of the egg. I think someone had asked earlier in this thread if the egg could be moved in a similar way, and it was met with a lot of opposition.

I don't blame you for wanting to do it though. It would be nice to have some company on the ride home I bet.

the fact you even asked, should have been an indication.....
C'mon, it's bike tag.
pick it up on a bike and shoot the pickup, transport it on a bike, drop it and shoot the bike at the tag spot.
it ain't defined here,
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...13&postcount=1
or the sub games, but WE all know the way it works....

Ride safe on your way home, and congrats on the new bike...

This comes up every now and then and was answered by the originator of the game in post 158 (http://advrider.com/forums/showpost....&postcount=158), two years ago, as follows:
