    A street bike? Not sure how you're defining 'street bike' but I don't think I'd take anything more street-oriented than a Versys up there. It might be fun to watch a CBR struggling to get up there though. :lol3

    You ever been to this Watson's Pond? 37.484583,-79.549074

    Satellite makes it look like there's some path to it, but I never noticed it...

    I've taken my cbr954 up worse at Uwharrie national forest. As long as it was dry and dusty you'd be amazed at how well lots of hp and no weight does.

    I got some very evil stares going around guys on dirt bikes. :-)

    When you pass a cbr with a husky smr510 in the turns you get some nastiness as well :lol3 Ok i'm done with my bike smack talk. Wow the weather is not looking too bad the next few days. Unfortunately I plan to go long with the rat if i get it so i need the proper timeframe.

    Finally finished moving in my new home. My new location helps center me in the RAT arena :wink:.

    Better hide Rat far away, I'll be in the Salem/Covington area this weekend. Who know's where Rat will end up afterwards :D

    You have quite a bit of real estate and insanely remote places to choose from, the possibilities are endless! I zoomed out to the national view with the rat map, it's like the size of a smaller state!

    My bike will be in pieces this weekend so it'll probably end up being 70 degrees, you watch! So far so good on the forecast, but I need to bailproof this scooter!:muutt I sure would love to head up north and do some kidnapping, then head south, south, then west.

    I have the perfect tag location in mind, one that would help a local business out by bringing adv riders in to purchase their goods and have something to celebrate with once home :1drink. I just can't figure out how to make time for it dag nabbit!

    We've got the Rat. So I hope its ok if we jump in on this game:) We wanted to ride this morning, and getting the rat seemed like fun :) We picked him up around 12:30, and we're taking a break to post this while on our way to put him somewhere new. I'll post his new location later today.

    Some very nice bikes on this thread. I need to make a grab on my scooter to balance it out a little.

    Heads up, there are about 2 miles of unpaved road going to the tailrace area. Its nice smooth hardpack though, very pavement-like, so no trouble, and there's a paved parking lot at the end.

    It was such a beautiful sunny day today, just begging for a ride, but if it weren't for the rat, I would have gone home much sooner :lol3, I was cold! Even with my heated jacket and grips, I was shivering this morning with temps in the 40s (I needed more layers). You people riding in the snow are made of tougher stuff :)

    Nice start to this new game! :clap Welcome to ADV Am.E

    One thing...even though that was a pretty easy tag to figure out it's always nice to list the town/road name/route number and maybe an approximate location in the grab post. It not only shows folks following the thread where the tag was, it helps the Cartographer post the locations on the map. :D
