Give a wave to Hancock as you ride through it to Coppah Habah (local dialect) for me, as I use to live there. Calumet is kinda a cool town. During the copper boon in the 1800's it was a very large and busy town (it has an opera house). But when the copper dried up almost everybody left town.
What an amazing tale Drago will have now! You are one serious tagger Yankee Dog!

Way to go !!!

Ok folks. This little segment of Drago's journey has come to an end. Here is the TAG shot. Sorry about the sun coming behind the photos. The quality could be better.





This should do for a clue. Let me know if you need more.





And this is how to find Drago. Form the position of the bike in the tag shot look back across the road for a power pole.




A little closer shot. See the yellow guy wire




Look at the base of the guy wire under the rotten wood. I am sure Drago will be ready to go when you get there.

Nice job on that run for the middle of nowhere. This may take some time for others to get out and pick up. Will have to watch the thread and hope for the best.

Nice ride there and back foy you Yankee Dog and Bratso. Hope that the weather holds up for you... Oh by the way high 90's here this week, almost to hot to ride.

GREAT tag Yankee Dog! How many miles have you logged in on this trip so far? How many hours a day riding?
Any hiccups with the Tiger? I have a 2011 with some stalling issues, but it has been ok since I oiled the stepper motor/shaft.

Really an amazing ride Yankee Dog.


BTW. Harbor Haus Restaurant has some good eats, and a nice view too.

I think we have come around 1200 so far. Maybe a little more than that to get home again

The Tiger has been without problems at 23000 miles.

Thought I would share some UP photos

Beautiful Lake Superior.

Any riders near the UP? This thing will probably get snowed in next week if someone doesn't grab it.

Speaking from experience, it doesn't start snowing up in the UP until late September.

I think this is a great drop! The way my life is right now I just don't see myself with the time to make the ride up there before the snow flies.

Agreed. I love the UP, but haven't been up that way in nearly a decade.
