    That ain't a tag mang :deal

    But...the location is already out, so that's that. Add the fact that a pay area was tagged.

    I added to the rules that the tags can't be made in a 'pay area'. I guess I assumed that was more or less a given, but now it's spelled out. Anybody not cool with that?

    edit...I see the house now. Still not really a tag though. I do see a guy in a helmet with a mirror, but no bike :deal

    I'll bet a late afternoon visit would be un-noticed by the Gestapo and one could buzz right up to the door of the Tulip Grove Mansion. My visit was early and guards were directing traffic.

    So if my second photo where you can see the pine tree next to the house is not sufficient, I guess the my new tag is "not authorized" as well?

    After looking more closely, I could see the house...kinda hard to see :lol3. Still no bike in the photo :deal. Not sayin' you threw your helmet and mirror in the car, but you know... :lol3

    But...I'm just talkin' out loud. I'm not the judge...just talkin' out loud. It's hardly fair for me to make rules and set about enforcing them as well.

    I'm actually gonna just quit commenting on these types of issues unless someone asks my opinion. I'll still post when something on the rule page is updated, but I'm leaving the interpretation to y'all.

    yeah, and I had someone hold the mirror real still too. :poser I should have also gotten the Aerostitch label in view that would have sealed it :baldy . I was on my NX btw, not the FJR.

    If I could have got closer without paying I would, I did think about standing in the middle of Lebanon Rd to get the valued shot but that idea sucked too. :tough

    I'll do better next time.

    Totally understandable. I wouldn't have paid to get in either...err not for just a tag. I've never been there, so I'll pony up one of these days probably.

    My bike and camera are in the parking garage, hoping the next tag gets posted before lunch and it's somewhere close.

    You're right istbenz, I thoroughly enjoyed my romp to work this morning. Nothing like playing in rush hour traffic to get your adrenaline flowing. :lol3

    oh well, I thought I would post this just for kicks. I thought it was low hanging fruit. :rofl

    Sorry about the poor quality pic. It was taken with my cell phone. And I did not want to get up on the side walk like the original pic either.
