    Damn, I see it now on Birds Eye view of Bing.

    I was right there. Just needed to go a little further. I found my way to that little pond and thought I had gone to far. I'm busy for the rest of the week, so I probably will not be going back (at least any time soon).

    Fellow ADV'rs
    MY XR650R was STOLEN from brooklyn NY on FRI/SAT night. Please keep an eye out for it and let me know. At the time it had the clear 4 gal tank on it and heidenau scout tires. the wheels are gold. Ill try to get some pics up. thanks for the help gentleman. and pray for the asshole who took to burn in a fiery death while attempting to harness the greatness that was my XR650R.

    Here are the most recent pics of the bike:

    Bike has a Florida tag, although that was probably removed. Bike also had some choice goodies, so keep an eye out for people selling XR650R parts, and please shoot me and SpeedoJosh a PM.

    Thanks
    :freaky

    Seriously, Shawn, is it safe to do alone without much talent? :D

    I think you're comment about the water crossings scared some of us off, at least as solo duck hunters...

    p.s., I'd need the GPS coordinates for the entry. The rest I could figure out.

    I recommend having a good set of knobbies and a friend.:deal

    Only Red and Mako would think of doing this on street tires!

    I was able to skirt around all but one or two of the puddles, and I went down a lot of trails I didn't need to. No streams to cross, just big puddles to go around (at least as far as I got)

    Are you kidding? They call that the "million dollar highway" because of all the high speed speeding ticket revenue they collect :lol3

    That was the original plan of the game. That the "Bruce" runs would be as much fun as the "get" runs.....:D

    If you need company, let me know. Would love to check that one out.

    And thanks for the little tour of Garden State tags passim, Doc,
    now I know what a cheval de frise is; great day to be wandering around
    in the hills with the foliage starting to turn.

    With a little help from Walter B., and inspiration from UXC (1st clue!),

    Please note that Walter is STILL TRYING TO UPLOAD THE GS TAG WITH HIS CRAPPY DROID!:rofl

    And, it's such a neat little area to explore, I'll save you the trouble of following the breadcrumbs...

    Were you in the woods? Your bike must be very quiet. We didn't hear anyone else in there.

    Here's another view from the tag spot. Yes, there is some mud. And yes, that is Walter, still trying to upload the GS tag on his droid!:D

    Nice Garden State Double, Jerry! :clap:clap:clap

    Good thing it's been dry for a few days. The mud might have been a little tough on those race slicks! Did you go and explore further down the road? A pretty neat "oasis" of dirt in a fairly urban location.
