    Tag-o-rama rules apply, public or suspiciously accessible DIRT "roads" in washtenaw or livingston counties are the idea. Picture tag with an obvious clue, sign or landmark is in order. No archived photos, just go get a fresh one and have fun!:muutt

    While I don't know the exact significance of this, it is obviously a road side memorial. Likely a rider due to the design. Been here for several years now and still generates alot of activity. RIP, and God speed my friend..

    No "tag-o-rama" in the thread title? Might be hard to attract new posters

    There y'all go, good point... let's hope it pulls a few more in. BTW, if anyone is interested BMW Touring Club Detroit has a Oakland county dirt road ride this Saturday ending at Detroit BMW open house to see the latest in German engineering...and hopefully some gratuitous hot dogs, er veinerschnitzel? It will start in Clarkston at 0845, 70 miles of back roads to dealership, get back any way you like. I can direct you to GPX track file if needed. And no you don't need a BMW...:deal

    Actually, I rode the Sportster there first and took the shot. Then went back on the KTM and took another pic. I'm not really up on this tag thing. My first pic was on a paved road with no bike in the pic, so at least this time I got some dirt and a bike in the frame.

    It has dirt bike bars and a custom UJM style bench seat so that's a start. It actually does very well on the gravel. Sandy two tracks.....not so good, but proper tires could make a difference. But then, really, what's the point. I have other proper dirty bikes.

    The "burgh"? of Nicholson, far NW corner of Livingston County..

    A closer look... "Methodist Episcopal Church", Nicholson is an unincorporated community named after postmaster Joseph C. Nicholson. Don't try and Mail anything though, the post office has been gone since 1901.

    Family weekend obligations have kept me from some recent fun GLDS rides - so I hope to get out on Saturday to knock off one of these tags. I've got a good one picked out.....
