    the tag doesnt have to be in the actual park but most be in a county boardering the park


    #1 - Find the tag and reproduce the photo (as best as possible). The first person to post a found tag gets to place the next tag. If you get a tag, but somebody else posts their picture first, you lose.

    #2 - Take the tag to a new location, get the photo and post it here. Give a few hints so the next person can figure out where the tag is located. Try to place the tags in interesting locations, maybe a bit of history that can be found down some nice twisties.

    #3 - Tag must be a) findable and b) may be placed on a dirt road if a street bike can make it. Maintained gravel is OK, but make sure to let folks know that gravel is required to get to your tag. We don't want to exclude those who don't like to get dirty.

    #4 - File photos are NOT permitted. You gotta ride to play this game.

    #5 - Your bike has to be in the TAG picture

    It may be hard to really get it going in full swing this time of year but I think it will be a fun thing:clap You never know what the weather will be like, on the nice days it will be a great excuse to get out for a ride.

    OK, so I understand the rules here:scratch Are we supposed to match that picture or add to it?????

    This looks like a good time for short winter rides around the DAKs. I just ordered a set of studs from aerostich to put in a set of TKC's :ricky

    Damn... :lol3

    Too bad its dark out (can't match the photo)... or I'd be back in 5 minutes.

    So, looks like the "Adirondack" title is kinda loose as far as location is concerned?

    These studs will work, you have to be cautious in turns but this time of year with the sand and salt on the road we are not dragging pegs anyhow. These will just help getting onto the secondary roads that do not get cleared like the state maintained roads. And of course lets give credit to heated GEAR:evil

    Just hoping the backorder releases before spring
