This was my first choice for the tag but when I got there its fenced off . You cant get to it . I hope its a seasonal thing .



Could be a cool stop if you could actually see it .

Man we better get some movement on the tag this week ! I'm delaying putting my bike away for winter... I guess nowadays you just have to keep everything ready to go all the time because of these crazy weather swings...

Bulk Food store,
One of the owners drove up to me on his fork lift wanting to know why bikes were showing up taking photo's of his sign ~ He seemed alright with the advertisement .

Well it seems that there is only three of us running around the east side of the bay .
So all hands on deck
I have a new rear shoe on the way just in case crappy weather shows its ugly face !! But the weather man is calling for nice weather this week .

I can't keep grabin my own tags .

I saw so menny cool things along the way but no real way for them to be found other than gps cordinates so I didn't think they would be usable ??? Any thoughts

Well lets keep this baby rollin .

Use'em

You can tag any place. You don't have to give the exact GPS location of the tag or have an official marker. You can come up with some riddles or hints as to road names, nearby businesses, etc. You can also include additional photos to help travelers find their way. Have some fun and get creative if you are the type.

I plan to put a couple tags in the middle of nowhere on some dirt roads. If people are having problems you can give more hints, and if all else fails the long/lat.

Some of the fun is figuring out where it is sometimes. Now that softball season is done I will have some more time, and see what I can do about getting you thumb folks to chase the tag a little farther :)

Searchable on the net, to some extent at least, is very helpful as it gives at least an area to head towards for those that aren't familiar with a specific area. However, a small challenge can be fun as well. Just keep in mind, this whole thing is about riding and seeing sights / riding roads one wouldn't normally hit passing through.


Now, I just wish I had some damn time to ride.

So im on the way to get this tag. Been on the road since 630. The Honda Sport Couch is running well when all of a sudden the lights start flickering. Ugh. Pulled into a gas station to check the obvious issues but nothing is found. Looks like ill be turning around and going home. No sense and putting another 300 miles on hoping the bike isn't developing an issue that doesn't leave me stranded.

Maybe later ill hop on the BMW if I make it home. Ugh.
