    Rules are easy...

    The "Tag" can be any object. It will be the object directly behing the bike in the photo.

    #1 - Find the tag and reproduce the photo (as best as possible). The first person to post a found tag gets to place the next tag. If you get a photo, but somebody else posts their picture first, you lose.

    #2 - Go to a new location and park your bike in front of something, get the photo and post it here. Give a few hints so the next person can figure out where the tag is located. Try to place the tags in interesting locations, maybe a bit of history that can be found down some nice twisties.

    #3 - Tag must be a) findable and b) may be placed on a dirt road if a street bike can make it. Maintained gravel is OK, but make sure to let folks know that gravel is required to get to your tag. We don't want to exclude those who don't like to get dirty.

    #4 - File photos are NOT permitted. You gotta ride to play this game.

    #5 - Your bike has to be in the TAG picture

    #6 - cannot re-tag Garden state tags

    #7 - picture must be taken from the correct end/side..... when possible

    Best practices would include:

    - getting a couple of potential tag pics if you're not sure you have an "original" (will save you a special trip when you mistakenly retag)

    - not delaying "too long" before posting the new tag- especially when the weather is nice and/or on holidays or weekends when more people are more available.

    - try to keep away from potentially dangerous conditions like busy intersections

    - take the time to get a good photo/composition

    - provide the location in a post after your tag is "gotten" so Steve can update the list.

    BOUNDRIES

    ***ATTENTION***

    THE FIRST PERSON TO POST THE PICTURE IS THE HOLDER OF THE TAG AND GETS TO PICK THE NEW TAG.

    Below is Steve's spreadsheet. he does a great job and you should really look at it before dropping a tag. just hit the drop down arrow of the town/county your in and it will show all the previous tags in that town/county.

    NEW TAG>>>>
    This high banked third-mile paved oval that has been hosting exciting racing events for the past 59 years!

    The picture i really wanted to use is questionable since it might be considered tresspassing so i will use it extra credit. a steet bike wont be able to get this one.

    I was gonna go up & take the snap from up on the hill, but there were a couple people inside the grand stand office that came out while I was taking this pic.

    I walked up & took one without the bike anyway:

    howabout posting a new tag sometime today!!!!!!

    OHHHH don't act like your busy or something. Your probably hanging out eating a candy bar looking at the ADV site, instead of going out and posting a new tag.

    This Castle built in 1900 has quite an interesting past, but is slated to be torn down very soon.

    It would have been better if it was a pink girls bike. I bet you had all the jewish people talking! How many beers to the mile does it take?:rofl I think we need a picture of the new tag with you sitting on the bike.

    This is your game.....but unless that bike has a motor I don't see, I call foul! :lol3

    Where exactly did you pedal from anyway? (Don't even tell me exit 98!)

    Just so everyone is clear, is a skate board OK too? I could probably throw that in the car easier.....:bash

    Not such a good precedent to set for the new game.

    RacerXS, I assume you don't know the area very well? EXIT98 is the exit for Lakewood NJ... Sallydog lives in Howell, the town next to Lakewood, this all sounds pretty easy to me. Although I agree, I call foul! :lol3

    Either that or Chris has to enter an Enduro with that beauty to make it legit

    I know the area very well, and to ride a bike from exit 98 to where this is would definitely be a hike (about 10 miles). It's much closer to exit 89.
    I suppose it depends how far from 98 he is.

    Sorry, actually 89 would be better for most people... I just took into account where Chris lives and even if its only 10 Miles... aren't we adventure riders? :lol3 I still want to see him enter it in an event of some sort
    I'd grab this but its not in my deck of cards for tonight :freaky

    Sallydog I give you credit for riding a bicycle through Lakewood. I live in Brick and I know how people drive in that area. But agree that it should be 2 wheels with a motor.
