    Heaven forbid people not have the time/interest/disregard of safety to go riding in the snow, freezing rain, dark, huh? If you want it back, go get it.

    Who are these non participants you speak of? I don't see any arm chair QBs. Several folks have gotten Bruce'd lately which leads me to believe folks are out riding. Also not everyone who pops in a plays does that exclusively for their riding. Several folks were down at the March Moto Madness this weekend. I'm all for Hail Mary rides, but Tellico to Johnson city and back in sub 35° sucks. If that's your idea of fun, have at it!

    It's really quite simple. If you enjoy the game play it. If you don't enjoy the game, ride your own ride. It's really that simple. Expecting others to have the same drive, enjoyment, and/or availability as yourself is an example of poor expectation management. It's up to that person, not everyone else, to make adjustments.

    The tag is both well known and easily searchable. At this point there's only one person who can't grab the tag. It's fair game for any and everyone. If you don't like where it's at or the speed in which it's moving, get out there and get it.

    No.....I didn't want the tag to set anywhere for a long time, I was just giving it a rest since it seemed like it bothered others when I wouldnt let it sit long. I can come get it and visit some family and friends in the area. I will send you a message and we will meet up and chat over lunch. thanks

    Dont mind what people say on this forum.... they seem to be very defensive sometimes. I have invited some others who play the tag game just to meet up and ride and they dont respond to my invitations. Oh well, we ride alot more miles just riding thoughout the year and the tag thing is just fun in my piddle time. See ya soon. Chris

    Watch out, y'all. The Sevier County contingent is loading up to get the tag.


    I just hope they have enough tie downs.

    I hope you have the same attitude when we meet out somewhere.....it will be interesting to see if what your personality is when your not chatting from behind an internet forum.

    I do have some tie downs. Thanks

    when did this game become such a serious thing??:rofl

    I've been Bruced so many times I can't count. I play the NC tag a lot and you're almost guaranteed to get Bruced every time unless you're out the door as soon as a new tag is placed. Those guys never seem to complain too much about tags staying in the same locale for a long time, and there have been so many tags placed that it is getting hard to find an original place to tag. If someone doesn't get the tag, there will always be another chance. I make the best of it when I get out, find a new road, go try a new diner out etc. That's kind of the point if you ask me, not just snapping a photo and posting it from my smartphone.

    Lighten up Francis



    I could write more but nobody wants to hear my crying.

    Just play the game, get out and ride, and don't worry about it moving or sitting.

    Enjoy the ride

    I'm with you...for now, I kinda like sitting on my couch taking armchair adventures...did so when the tag was in the Choo-Choo area.

    I've seen some very interesting places in the Far East (TN) also, thanks to y'all.

    Got my new Tiger 800 so watch out ETTOR world! Well, at least when the weather breaks.

    That's right. We went to far off frozen Yankee land. Guess we might try the tag some other time.

    By the sound of it, you went fishin' as you were leaving the state. Only a couple of nibbles...though!
