    The "Tag" can be any object. It will be the object directly behing the bike in the photo.*
    #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 photo, but somebody else posts their picture first, you lose.
    #2 - Go to a new location and park your bike in front of something, 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
    #6 - cannot re-tag anything. Once something is tagged its done.
    #7 - picture must be taken from the correct end/side..... when possible

    ***ATTENTION***these are the rules from day 1 but i have been getting phone calls, PM's and emails so this has to be made clear so i dont have to make it clear 1 rider at a time.*
    #1. THE TAG IS THE OBJECT BEHIND THE BIKE. there are no official mascots in this game. any "item" left at a tag site is just that, an item and should be considered a gift to the tag gods. THE ONLY THING THAT MUST BE TRANSPORTED TO THE NEW TAG IS YOUR BIKE.
    #2. THE FIRST PERSON TO POST THE PICTURE IS THE HOLDER OF THE TAG AND GETS TO PICK THE NEW TAG.*the following do not qualify you as a tag winner:i googled it first
    i arrived at the scene first
    i clicked my camera first
    i took a picture of an item left near a tag
    so
    tag #1 needs no clues but ill give one anyway.

    CRAZY...I am taking a bike to meet a guy in Deming, NM (he being from Las Vegas, NV), Dropped the bike off and headed back I-10. Stopped at a god forsaken truck stop (with a Dairy Queen), walking back out and here comes a Yamaha Super Tenere with a dog crate on the back...it is Sally...PS: Sally is a guy. He is headed back to NJ.

    I hope you're not running for president one day cause that kennel contraption puts romney's story to shame lol. I don't even see that being legal. Cops give you any problems?

    My daughter and I call it "Craposphere". Just another government waste of money, hugely expensive, the "scientists" that lived there faked their results (they were supposed to be living there for a year with no contact with the outside world. They were ordering pizza delivery). Reminds me of global warming...follow the money.

    You will need a photo sharing account like smug mug or photo bucket.

    Till then it's still open for someone to steal your glory.

    There is another Arizona Tag-O-Rama game.
    The Tag picture from that game currently sits in Yarnell. I cant figure out how to link that thread to this one, so I can show you the picture.
    It was taken by jmlmjmjm of Prescott.

    Please, spend the money to start a smugmug account. Smugmug is one of Baldy's fantastic companies. He provides advrider.com free of charge to all of us. The least we can do is throw him a few bucks here and there to make it worthwhile. Find someone's discount code to save a few bucks for yourself and them.

    And besides, smugmug is awesome.
