    After that happened to me a couple of times, I bought one of those LED battery charging meters that can stick onto the dash. It shows immediately if the heated grips, Gerbings jacket and high beam are putting too much strain on the system. They are a bit pricey for what you get, so a KLRista might have trouble dropping the cash for one

    Nice grab! That's right where the Clarendon Metro stop pukes it's ridership out on the street . . . When I was still in uniform I worked for a time at one of the nearby office buildings. Great location. :clap

    TAG

    Ali was appalled by the blatant antiKLRism shown by the last tagger. Placing a tag where one is expected to pay to park? Outrageous and goes against everything KLRista stand for. Well, when Ali gets appalled, he wants to drink (plus I didnt share my tea when we had pizza). I have the perfect place. It's totally where I get my wine. And more really since I buy my beer there as well. I dont think you can buy lace in this town..

    Find this bush.

    I got there a little too late as Ali had obviously found the way into Total Wine and More. Slurred speech and off key singing were the clues. Ali was in a romantic mood (sounding like a cat howling for a lost mate). Something about courting Rosita. Then it hit me. Rosita happened to be next to the animal shelter! So I took Ali to Rosita so that Ali and Rosita could hang out with their friends at the shelter.

    Here are the photo's:

    And here is Ali, at the base of the blank sign.

    Happy Tagging!

    ORexpat was presented with a replica Ali today as part of his "farewell" from this side of the USA.
    He leaves with 80 tags - the top dog in nova-tag-o-rama :clap
    although nova rider and xdragracer are not far behind.

    Dang, that's a lot of gasoline chasing a plastic alligator . . . or shark, or itty-bitty beemer . . . . and a lot of fun.

    Elk, really appreciate the repli-Ali. Hopefully I'll be able to put her to good use out in the Pacific Northwet.

    (Today's ride was great training for riding in Seattle . . . :huh)!

    You will be greatly missed in NOVA but its good that you will be moving on to bigger and better scenery.
    Enjoy being back in the PNW! Give us a heads up when you post pictures from over there.

    Not yet... I had a couple of inmates figure it out. I guess the weather has slowed the game down. :cry

    Does anyone need any clues? Rosita and the PWC animals are waiting...

    :rofl

    OK, here you go.

    1) Bing Maps is your friend on this. Google Maps doesn't show this location.
    2) Next to a 4 lane road that totals 9

    Look for the textual clues in the original posting, plus my response to you. That should provide more than enough to find Ali. If not, PM me for more clues.... :D

    Yes, especially on the bridges and overpasses, so be careful.
