Ok, I only had Cordura 500 back then, but there was nothing left of it. Nor of the skin below. Outch.

SInce then I only ride in leathers, even if it's just round the corner. Call me a weirdo.

Hey Flash,

If you head out for the ENC tag, you can hit up Aloha Zoo near Sanford. I'd go grab it, but I'm working on that keg I hauled home on Thursday.

Weirdo? Hardly.

My personal method is to avoid high speeds. And get offs.

Erm.... OSJ.. Don't wanna spoil your day, but the "track vehicle" tag had already been done...
We're now looking for a small, privately owned zoo or the like!



Sorry mate.

(I like your new tag better, tough!)

Does this work?




It may not say zoo, but they have animals, the have visitors and tours, and a website..http://www.bigcat.org/index.php


Soooo, if that works, then this is next...



A bridge that is no longer in use, no longer has a roadway across it. May have been converted to a pedestrian trail....

Unused bridge grab. This is underwater about half the time and is strictly used for fishing now.

Just went back and read the last tag description a little more closely. If my grab doesn't meet spec, let me know and I'll yank it down.

Looks to me like it comes down to whether your bike is supposed to be there (in which case its still a roadway) or you have evaded whatever is in place to keep traffic out?

When it's not underwater, folks park on it all the time. It used to be a maintained road/bridge, but when the lake was created, it was "decommissioned" and a new road/bridge built behind and above it.

Either way, just let me know.
