I think we've all run off in a huff.
Too many damn rules...and too many assholes trying to keep it fun.

If I did not think it would be gone by the time I even got there I would ride down. I think sometimes that happens with the more obvious tags. Obvious if you know where it is at any rate...

Okay, these are the old rocks from the raging rapids ride at Opryland. Next tag will require the bigboy riding pants. Bring hydration, will be hot out there

Yep! That was me! Loading it at that point.
I trucked it to there and rode almost to Hwy 7. Total 58 miles @ 40-45 mph. I know, a real rider would have ridden the bike from the house, but 55 mph is only possible on long downhill runs. And uphills are 35 tops. It was fun, and it turned a lot of heads.

Well dang! We would have stopped if we knew that was you.
BTW, the old tag was what remains of the Raging Rapids or whatever they were called. The only remaining remnant of the old Opryland, unless you count the pieces of rollercoaster track sculpture at Riverfront in Nashville. The rocks are in the back parking lot between Opryland Hotel and the mall.

I can't believe it took that long for anyone to grab this one... I know a few picked it up pretty quick so didn't bother to post a hint since no one asked...

I think I gots it now. And if I can ever get my fuel-filter/regulator job done, I'll go get it. Gotta love BMW for making a $135 filter/regulator and 2 hours worth of Summer fun to get a new one on there
