    C.O.M.M.I.E.S. = Crazy Ol' Men Motorcycling In Excessive Suburbia

    The boundaries are simple. Keep on or within the county lines of...

    Clayton
    Cobb
    DeKalb
    Douglas
    Fayette
    Forsyth
    Fulton
    Gwinnett

    Tag Map Here

    Rules:

    1. Only 1 tag at a time. Must be findable.
    2. No tags from files you must ride to get the tag!!!
    3. Post decent clues.
    4. Dirt, gravel,and asphalt are all fair game we are adv riders. No singletrack ,pigpaths, or illegal trails
    5. Have fun, be safe.
    6. and my favorite, no EFFIN WHINING.

    For those of you who are new to tag in general. This is the way it works. A photo is taken of a bike in a scene. It is posted on this thread. Clues are provided for the tag's location. You solve the clues or recognize the location from the pic. You ride out to the location. Put your bike in the same scene.Take a pic and identify the location in your post's subject heading. If you are the first to post your pic on the thread, then the new tag's location is yours to determine. and so on, and so on......

    I carpooled to work today, so I may not get the first tag as I hoped... anyone else can feel free to get us started....

    Question: Is the winner the first one to find the current tag AND place a new tag? Or is the winner simply the first one to find the current tag? Looking forward to another tag game. :thumb

    It does look good. I just wonder what it will look like after it's had red mud all over it.. Don't have a clue on the tag though. Guess I can't screw this one up. :wink: :lurk

    Nice start packet. I finally took the tour, so to speak, late last fall (trying not to give it away.)

    This pic was taken a short distance from there, and it's also ITP. :nod There's a lot of cool places in Atlanta.

    Actually I've ridden the last two weekends, just not in Atlanta :ricky

    A week ago at Highland Park and yesterday at Nimblewill Road. (Just an excuse to have a pint & cheesteak in Dahlonega.)

    I'll go move the Atlanta tag this week. I have some good ideas already :thumb

    Please consider changing the name of this tag. I don't want to be a COMMIE or have anything to do with them.
