Root.........I half expected to see you there mate!

donnymoto.........I loved reading your James Bay ride. How did you ever find that beach of canoes on google earth? You must have been really bored that day. Turned into a great ride though!


My promise to all the inmates. The egg will not get buried under six feet of snow this winter. I am heading south on or about the 20th if you can hang till then.

Thanks, was actually looking for remote fishing spots when I found the James Bay Road. From there, the road to the canoes was on the satellite view, but not map view. When I started the trip, I was looking at grabbing this egg and taking it all the way up there.

20th??? Cool!

Go for the long haul. Pete.

I think I will be riding south for the weekend of Oct 10-11. If the egg makes down my way I could make sure he gets to the Sunny South for the winter!

I am planning on heading down the Blue Ridge for some photo ops of the changing leaves. I see that this Tag O Rama has already included stops along the BRP and Mt Washington, would be nice to put it somewhere different. There is a nice little spot in Lock Haven PA that I want to visit along the way. Thinking I will leave the egg there for someone to pick up in hopes that it will venture south west.

Hmmmm, I think that would work out for me taking the egg south, I'll keep a watch out.

You guys have been patient waiting for me to get on my ride. That is cool. I know some of you want the egg to travel a long distance and I would love to see it venture West, so it went on an unofficial trip today.

The egg goes to Phoenix!

The rules said it had to be on two wheels, so here it is, in Phoenix on two wheels.





So there is an "unofficial" side trip. The egg is back in Toronto tonight and still planning for a departure on the 20th which should put the egg in P.A that evening.

Pissed Get the freakin' egg moving!

Am I the only one who thinks sitting on the tag for two weeks is a bit much?

I mean, this is prime riding season in most of NA. I'd rather see the tag bounce around the current tag area some more (and see some other neat buildings/historical sites/natural areas/whatever) than waste two weeks waiting for a tag-holder to take a preplanned motorcycle trip. That's a thread-killer to me.

Flame away if you disagree!

I have no problem seeing the egg sit around for awhile so long as it is followed by a long ride. Long rides are suppose to be the nature of the NATOR. Its not so easy to just take off for a long one on a moments notice. It seems to me that a wait now and again is the price we pay.
