    By the way, the road this tag is on is not labeled on Google Maps. The number is there but the label is missing. If you use a GIS Browser or Yahoo's POS mapping you can see the road name as per the clue. FYI

    Your boss got it too, h'ninja. :lol3

    I knew where it was with the basketball ref. but google maps doesn't show the road with ring clue. They call it something else. Y'all have fun, 17 degrees in the morning. I'll be in the woods.:gun2

    That does it.
    I'm going to post the entire description and clues for my next tag now.
    It will say,
    "The location for this tag is cold. Really fucking cold."

    Purchased by a local university (not a univ then) in 1929 for $4750.
    They had a boat named "Speedy"
    Keg parties were the rage in the 70's
    It is down a three digit route. The first two numbers are the same. If you divide them by each other you get the final number of the three digit route. The name of the road is related to someone who calls looking for your membership and to pay your dues.
    It is along a "Fork".
    Kentucky Coffee Bean trees are planted around the structure

    Something occured to me today.
    I went to the new location on my way to pick up the current tag, as I thought it would make a better loop for the ride.

    When I placed the new tag, it occured to me that this presents a certain difficultly when placing the toy bike at the new location.

    Therefore, there is no bike at this location. It's in my tankbag.

    Okay, here are your hints:

    1. Since HBN made the bold move of being the first to post a tag on the East side of 81, I kept the new one on that side.
    2. This popular hiking trail is located on a road sharing a name with very popular sportbike sold between 2002 and 2006.
    3. The location is cold. Really fucking cold.

    The sign on the gate reads:
    [​IMG]

    As far as I can tell, that means it's still open to the public and motorcycles (which can easily go around), they just don't want cars going there....
    I wasn't sure, though, so I just turned around. Can anyone clarify this, because it looks like an AWESOME DS ride beyond the gate.

    NOW THATS A TAG!

    I am still scratching my head. Oh well I got all night.

    I have been riding all day with a Ruckus. Lots of fun - will post something under SVRInmates.

    The bike in question was better known by its displacement.

    Got it. Anyone interested in an AM ride Sunday? Oh and to answer your question, I think this road is open for some DSing. I would probably just go right around the gate no prob. You can enter it farther north on a road which shares part of its name with an old Honda model popular from the 60's. I may be able to get a hold of the keys to this road from a buddy but that wouldn't be till next week sometime.

    btw, I made a mini ADV sticker for the KTM and have it here ready for the AM.

    How long is the ride from Richmond to the location?
    I could possibly come with my son.
