    Sorry the Snail got swiped! :cry But I like the Hermit crab!
    I'm glad to see it finally taking off though.
    I just started a new local game for North Western Virginia. My mascot is lame in comparison.

    So if you all find yourself down in the western part of Virginia playing this game, just out for a cruise or maybe just lost and just have to grab a tag.....

    Hey CapoGreg
    Way-to-go with 2 tags!
    BTW the hermit crab has been taking it easy in my studio because of an avalanche of needy clients which I have had to deal with lately. Just maybe I will have the weekends free soon to play this game, and get Mr. Hermit in the mix.:rofl

    Yes Jax
    Legs move a bit faster than slithering along it seems. I just hope these legs take-off like the MD Tag has.

    It seems legs are not too much faster than the slime trail.
    Do I have to grab my own tag and move it somewhere easier to reach??:lol3

    If it weren't for my extreme distaste for riding east of Fred-neck, I would make the grab man. Then put it back west...:evil

    Do you still have your K75S man? I am currently getting my 87 K75C back on the road.

    I'd go after it if I could ever get more than a 1/2 day off. :baldy

    It's no fault of yours, but the old girl is a sore subject. I owned her for over 13
    years and almost 40,000mi and she was a dream. My first bike, and never one
    mechanical problem. Never let me down in numerous hair-raising situations,
    commuting, touring, and, ahem, "stupiding".

    When I got the R-Sport, I just didn't like her laying around gathering dust so I
    sold her to a friend who was getting back on the road after 25 years of raising
    kid's and knuckling under to the wife's wishes.

    Less than 6 months later he got t-boned at 4-way stop less than a mile from his
    home. He lost his left leg just above the knee and is just getting used to his
    prosthetic. I'm glad he's OK, but on the other hand, I miss her.

    :cry

    That is just horrible man. Sorry to bring up sad memories, both for your friend and for your bike. My K75 was my bike back to riding and it will always have a place in my garage. I was going to sell it after I got the KTM, but my wife told me that she loves riding pillion on the BMW more than the big 990. So it is getting a much needed overhaul and refresh. It will be our 2 up machine.

    It's funny that your wife feels that way. The 75 is the ONLY bike my
    (motorcycle averse) wife has ever agreed to ride with me. I had a sweet
    corbin with a little backrest that gave her the secure feeling she needs.

    Needless to say, she's absolutely terrified of being perched on the precipice
    of a back seat on the R-Sport. Hell, I'M terrified half the time I'm riding it!
    But for me that's part of the fun :evil

    I've been toying with the idea of picking up a used F800GS to try and drag
    the wifey back into the saddle.

    And no worries about the sad memories, it helps me remember to ride
    safely.

    Ok,

    I will make every attempt to grab this one tommorow and might even throw a mascot in the mix. The drop, however, willnot be until early next week if that is acceptable with all.
