    I was thinking the same thing. It sucks not having a center stand as well. My luck the bike will be taking a nap when I pull back into the garage.

    Metzler M5. The Yamaha dealer I get the change done at said they can get me on a more versatile bike for a reasonable price.

    Bandy and I are going to be out riding tomorrow. Probably meet downtown Columbia around 11:30am or so and ride until....

    Shoot me a PM if anyone is interested. Probably mostly street and the occasional dirt/gravel road cause we will be 2 up. Also, Bandy has to do a valve check and throttle body balance between now and then. If he doesn't make it, I'll still be out grabbing tags.

    For the record, the fire hydrant is located at 1400 Taylor Street, Columbia, SC.
    At almost 40 feet tall and five tons, this tilted-by-design public sculptutre is not intended to provide a single drop of water to fight fires.
    But it's the largest of three contenders for the largest hydrant title.
    It stands in the AgFirst Farm Credit Bank parking lot, near Palmetto Medical Center.
    Artist Blue Sky's "Busted Plug Plaza," with it's enormous leaning fire hydrant fountain, was officially unveiled to the city of Columbia on February 18, 2001.
    There was a piece on the news about moving this fire hydrant last week.
    You can go online and place your vote for it's new location. :deal
    It is nowhere near the fire department on Main Street. Just saying! :D
    It's about time someone went after this tag! :clap

    You are so right.. I started riding at 9am in the weather from NC to SC. My google results mentioned something about water dept. oops!

    I first heard about this Hydrant on the adv forum. But the next morning I started yelling at the news on TV. The wife thought I was crazy. I showed her the tag and I got the eye roll.

    A small part of the massive Christmas light display at Swan Lake Iris Gardens in Sumter.
    See my State grab for more of the lights. Thanks to Gimpy for the tag.

    There might be 701 statues, but I know of only two.
