    Okay the ADVers up north are having fun so I am starting this tag-o-rama down south. If you are up there or are going up north play at this is the link:

    I am sometimes lazy so I mostly copied and pasted the rules (Thanks Sallydog :D )

    Southern California Tag-O-Rama
    Rules are easy...

    The "Tag" can be any object. It will be the object directly behind 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 anything. Once something is tagged its done.

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

    #8 - Be safe, Be legal and be smart about where and how you take your picture

    #9 - The new Tag Holder should try to post a new Tag within 72 hours or at least post here when they anticipate to post a new Tag. If you are too slow and the group is antsy you may have Tag Holder status removed (Bruced) and a new Tag Holder will be selected to keep things moving.

    ***ATTENTION***
    ONE rider at a time, No multiple Tags

    #1. THE TAG IS THE OBJECT BEHIND THE BIKE. there are no official mascots in this game. any "item" left at a tag site is just that, an item and should be considered a gift to the tag gods. THE ONLY THING THAT MUST BE TRANSPORTED TO THE NEW TAG IS YOUR BIKE.

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

    #3. So cal boundary. everything South of Monterey 101,156,152,59,132,120,395,120,6 to nevada. out of state is no longer California and is out of bounds

    https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Cal...d5e!2m2!1d-121.8946761!2d36.6002378!3e0?hl=en


    the following do not qualify you as a tag winner:
    I googled it first
    I arrived at the scene first
    I clicked my camera first
    I took a picture of an item left near a tag

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    So obviously me first!!!
    So an obvious picture!!
    What? you still want a clue?

    Clue: Construction of the horseshoe shaped stadium is completed with a seating capacity of 57,000 in 1922

    I can't wait! I'm gonna be the first one to ride South, steal the tag, and move it North! :lol3

    That'll be a whole new aspect to this game, leave your tag hanging too long and get it stolen and moved to the North/South. And it stays in that region until you come get it back! :D

    I would also probably add that the holder of the tag can be bruced if another player tags the current tag and post the new tag first. This will prevent someone from getting a tag then lagging on getting a new one thus holding up the game. Just a thought.

    I would like the Sequoias down south.
    I'm thinking Monterey and just north is 152/156 or even the 198 over to Fresno and the 168 or 180. That is a long days ride from LA!

    Way too many rules. Gonna plan and go north and get that Tag back from those clowns that cant find a good tag to save their lives and donkey around like lost foreigners trying to find the most simple locations they tagged.

    Good efforts though grinder. This will be fun for the North/South battle that will probably come.

    Damn it, I should have grabbed this tag yesterday. I doubt I'll get a chance to head that way before next weekend.

    You're right, we can't find a decent tag to save our lives.







    Not like this one. This tag is the benchmark by which ALL NorCal tags should be measured. It is Stellar! A tag that all but the most Intrepid of Adventures will fail in the effort....


    Yeah, the Rose Bowl. And you retards haven't even gotten out to tag it yet.

    What's the population base down there again? What, is there no Starbucks near the Rose Bowl? :D
