    Would have done my Sunday morning Big Apple tag move, but couldn't find this one. Now that the roads have been plowed in Brooklyn, shouldn't be a problem getting to it:

    LOL. A 50cc motor and some studs and dude's in business.

    I think my hints are pretty good, the key is the part about keeping with two tags from the week prior. And I did see a fellow out on his GS today, from Manhattan no less, so there's no excuse :rofl

    A bit of local knowledge helps. Not 100% sure where it is, but close enough that I could easily find it. That is if I cared to go hunting for a tag. I leave that for the Jerseyites

    I prefer to find them, and find new places. I only grab tags when I am heading to the area that the tag is, or bored. So yes you Jerseyites can go grab the tag.
    BTW I will be in that area on Thursday, if I do not need to drive and it is still sitting there I will grab it.
    Yours truly,

    Here's a hint - those aren't giant fireballs in the background...but that is the relevant part of the image, as far as the theme goes. I think I've got a better shot of that intersection I'll post in the morning...

    Boy, you engineer types kill me! :rofl

    No rush on that better shot. The tag has already sat for three days (yesterday was a beautiful day for a ride). Just saying! :(:

    Yesterday was beautiful day to ride weatherwise, but I would not have wanted to be out on my bike unless I was planning on some ice riding. In my part of the city there was a layer of hard-packed snow ice on most of the streets.

    May be, but I took a photo, I'm gonna post it... Besides, there was still slush on that street yesterday, it's not super popular...
    Rain today should've taken care of it, and tomorrow should be clear. Go get it! It's really close to a certain bridge...

    There's a hint there, and another here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=20655045&postcount=9138

    My apologies. A great tag, and the clues were decent. Just had to use a little deductive reasoning:

    SWEET! I was starting to worry! :clap

    Dug my bike out of the snowbank this evening, plan on riding tomorrow. Should be clear, rain helped a lot.
