    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. Try to place the tags in interesting
    locations, maybe a bit of history that can be found down some nice twisties.


    #3 - Clues should be OBVIOUS as to where the location is. This game is about riding a motorcycle, not riding a keyboard. If you want
    puzzles and riddles, play a different game
    . Only the driving directions should have to be googled.

    #4 - Tag 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.

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

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

    #7 - You have 72 hours to place a new tag and the new tag has to be at least 25 miles from the previous tag. New tags not placed
    before the 72 hours revert to the previous tag spot, unless there is a "Brucing". If there is a "bruce", the first Bruce owns the tag after the 72 hours.

    #8 - "Reserved"

    #9 - No Whining............

    #9 - The boundaries are as follows:

    NORTH- I 90
    SOUTH- I 80
    EAST- I 81
    WEST- Pa/Ohio state line

    That was the plan. Keep it in the nice riding areas, and keep it moving more than a couple of miles at a time..................Best of all NO Riddles!!!!!

    Cherry Springs is on Rt 44 southast of Coudersport, about 15 miles. Coudersport to Wellsboro is about 42 miles. My house is about 99 miles northwest of Coudersport
