    In the last 3 days I have ridden just over 400 miles in the cold, rain and even snow. I even went down. And enjoyed every minute of it. But today I took the Might TW for what I thought would be a short ride to Tunkanock to place the tag. I never even made it as far as Moon Lake. I froze my ass off. I just could not handle the icey wind on 29 without my windshield. The RatMax with its handguards and cheapo screen are practically a GoldWIng compared to the TW. The last few days I felt slightly manly braving the cold on these long rides with not heated gear. No winter gloves even. Turns out I am as much of a puss as I always been. The RatMax is just a great cold weather bike if you can keep the back wheel from spinning up. But back to the TOR......

    These 2 Dinosours sit out in front of a building that came back from extinction. It burned to the ground on Thanksgiving Day 2008. It is around 60 miles North of the last tag. And if thats not enough, its right where my sister Ellen lost her life August 1st 2008 when a 16 year old boy driving his parents car turned into her lane and struck her head on her R6. He had his license 1 day.

    Sorry for the bummer tag. But it is what it is. And its good to remember the ones you miss on the holidays.

    Mine does that sometimes too, especially after posting photos for some reason. I've gone to tag locations only to find it had been grabbed before I ever left my house. I refresh this page before I leave the house now!

    Ok
    I would research me more. You know my sisters first name. Find out her last name and you can find out what happend to her. Once you find out what happend to her and where. You will know where to go street and town wise. After that you should be able to find a Dinosour.

    I'll do that. I know you mentioned her before...I'll go back through your posts. I can't imagine what you must feel standing in that spot.

    NEPA-Where tags go to die......

    Well I am off to the garage. The Spunky Monkey is going down for winter. I had an offer for free powder coating. And Free is for me. So every polished part on the bike will be satin black. While I repaint the motor and frame. With any luck the bike will look like this come spring. A rattier version of course.......

    Give us a break Dennis! It's firggin' cold out there! I've been freezin' my butt off just delivering furniture all over the countryside.

    The tag had me stumped for a while. Wonder what the dinosaur has to do with the store?? Although I have thought about having pole dancers in my display window. Anything to drag 'em in.

    The first half decent day after my holiday rush, I will be buying pizza at Grotto's for all the NE PA ToR gang that can make it, and maybe have the first/last Harveys Lake Grand Prix. I'll post up a day & time later, gotta take care of biz for now.
