    Looks like Newcomb's Ranch, but it isn't.

    Matt figured it out, and my guesses some other guys will too. But if not, I can post some clues or another pic that makes it a dead giveaway.

    I'm confused...is this game supposed to be inclusive or only for Socal natives? While I see it's a cabin with stone and it's Octoberfest themed, I'd argue rule #2 isn't satisfied. Matt figured it out because it's on one of his routes home.

    #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.

    I got it immediately. Might try to get it tomorrow unless I get Bruced first.

    Let's just say it's a bit south east from Newcomb's.

    I could find it but I believe the pictures are supposed to be obvious from the start. Why not have the name of the establishment in the photo?

    Like when the dude took the pic of the dam. It was pretty obvious. The original post that started this thread shows the obvious (Honda dealership by rose bowl) and it doesn't try to crop or hide info that gives it away. I don't think googling/bing/yahoo (someone still uses yahoo) searches should be required.

    2 hour web search and 1 hour moto ride...

    Bunch of old baldy guys bitching and moaning....blah, blah blah...LOL

    I rode around on dirt trails for around 3 hours when I was looking for some obscure spot where two trails intersected by Fremont Peak when I retrieved the SoCal desert tag. Google was not my friend on that adventure.

    It does say "lodgetoberfest" in the picture, so it's more of a one minute web search.

    I was surprised how many "lodgetoberfests" there are on google.

    Wow, this is a tough crowd. I've seen tags go more than a week or two without being found. It's only been a few hours and two people already know where it's at. If you would've asked nice I would've posted the other pic but I think I should let palinka have a shot now.
    And there is a bit of history in this place as well as good food. And plety of good twisties:turkish

    I was ready to run to Chicago but then I realized it was out of the SoCal boundaries.

    Had to go get this close-to-home tag before one of those long haulers punts it way out to the middle o-nowhere.

    Now that The highway is open, plenty of peeps should be passing by here.

    Should be super easy, but I will toss out one Big clue.

    I will post a new tag later today, my idea tag turned into a real adventure getting the bike stuck in the sand and 3 hours to get it out solo total of 600 miles ridden and getting home at 2am I'm tired. I also know why they put windmills out off the 10 fwy I think I wore the knobs off the right side of my tires with the lean angle lol
    NOT THE TAG:
    It was all fun until this point and I thought how bad could it be they always exaggerate
