    Nice bike, and another "Chuck Duck"! :clap:clap

    p.s., did Walter go up there with his 35 year old "dual sport", or just take the photos?:-)

    So, you ready for some sand with that GS of yours? Pine Barrens 500 Oct. 27-29th?

    We shall see. The duck was relocated in a town that Ben Franklin would have loved like he did the women from that country. The road in French is Ruisseau. Coordinates provided. It sits at the base of a small tree waterside of the road. Easy one.

    Nice spot, Chuck, but there are at least a dozen "small trees" near your bike. Did you leave a little yellow ribbon on the tree so we don't have to dig around? Or do you want to do a ride on Wednesday afternoon and show me the spot?

    Anyway, nice tagging with the "Pepsi" bike!:-)

    The duck is behind the smaller tree of the pair visible at road edge and almost directly in line and across from my rear tire....oh, and adjacent to a brood of young diamondbacks....bring anti venom

    New Tag

    Get here and follow dirt road to the left until you see this trail on the right with the log across. The duck is toward the left end behind the rock.

    3rd page? Come on, guys, a little help. I can't wander in the woods for another week because of a little carpal tunnel surgery.

    Healing nicely, though! Stitches out on Monday.

    With one hand? Actually, been out on the easier bikes already (see Garden State TOR) , so maybe I'll get it tomorrow.
    Remember, though, it's not just the getting of the tag. You have to place a new one! Guess I can make it Harley-accessible! :-)

    I didn't mean you. I meant anyone else on any bike. But of course you're correct, it's not just the get. It's also the drop.

    Didn't you have carpal tunnel surgery a couple of years ago? Other hand?

    Don't bring the Harley for this one as you can see from my muddy tires. This is some light bushwacking through a not so used trail in a great riding spot.

    Find the duck

    Here's the GPS of the location of the get spot. It's best to come in from the McWilliams Forge parking lot. If you bring a truck, park it in the woods.

    There's an arrow so it's easy. Take the trail that is directly west of the get spot. I don't think you can get to it from the east or south side.

    Nice get! Any chance you can convert those Imgur images so they display on this forum?
