    My thoughts exactly. We've been volleying back forth for a week now. We need to get this thing out of Spartanburg and Cherokee counties. Any takers?

    Cool tag.

    I'll be back in soon, the KLR needs new tires and they won't be in 'til next week. BUT, since they're t63's, I'll be able to set some more adventurous tags!

    Within 5 miles of a terminus of a 3 digit highway, said digits, when added together, equaling (2).

    :eek1 :eek1 :eek1 Wow ! I know exactly where that is - right on one of my shortcuts. I can't tell you how many times I thought about stopping and making it a tag.
    Maybe I'll meet one of you Upstaters there. :evil

    Old Gas station/store about 3 miles north of Hickory Tavern on Hwy. 101. This is on my back roads
    route from Columbia to Greenville. I thought about making it a tag, but was always in a hurry and didn't
    stop. Got rained on for most of the trip, but had a great ride. Thank Opa. :D

    New tag up after lunch.

    :D Here is new tag for you to play with.

    This diner is located on Main Street in a town with a two-part name. The first part of the name is the same
    as the first part of the name of the town or object in two of my recent tags. :evil The tags could have been in
    either the Upstate, State or Midlands games. More hints later if needed. Enjoy the ride.

    :gerg Rice, the rain washed my bike for me, Paddy

    I know that one well and drove by it yesterday. Even got caught by the train on the way to the 'old homestead. I will be back down that way next weekend. Grab it before I do!

    Be careful what you wish for. Those Upstate guys are a rowdy bunch and I bet you don't want to run into one of them while stealing their tag. :lol3

    Still waiting on my new tires. I took a ride today to Patterson Gap in North Georgia, I needed to go for a ride, and that was one of the dumber things I've done recently. I REALLY need those new hoops! My associate rider informed me that the fish-tailing and tank slapping were quite impressive. On the plus side, at least I managed to keep the shiny side up!

    I am going for the tag tomorrow and plan to post it from my Droid Pro but with the testing I have done, I cannot get the actual picture to post, only the URL link, which works. I have tried SMug Mug, Flickr and Picassa, but none allow posting an embeddable HTML link.

    Anybody have advice on apps to post the actual pics from Droids into Tap-A-Talk ? I can post pics from my desktop PC with no problem.

    Your fishtailing and tank slapping have always been impressive :clap Slippery rubber indeed sucks.

    Hey riding man,
    I use the Smug Mug app to upload pictures from my I-phone. Then, I go to the Smug Mug site, find the pic I want and copy it as an imbedable link into my ADV post. You won't see the picture on your phone, but it will be on the site. It is a bit complicated and no doubt, others have easier methods, but they may not wish to share them with us. Check the Smug Mug help page to find the type of link you need. Some will only appear as links to your photo on Smug Mug, but the imbedable link will actually create the photo for you. Good luck. Rice ----
