    Yeah. I was able to reach back home from work early and avoid the whole riding in the rain thing.

    Go get the tag! I must say riding the KLR to that spot is easier than taking the Connie. So I would avoid using the Sports Machine.

    We did a run over the Richard Russell yesterday, stopped for lunch at Big Daddy's in Helen. From there, had to dodge a T-storm heading home but thankfully missed the worst of it. Started raining again just as we pulled into the driveway..

    Folks, a lurking, newbie here. Been following a while, but first post.

    I live north of I-20 near Augusta, Ga. I ride both Street and DS. I went to the first posts and tried to learn how to play, but couldn't find any "rules".

    Not meaning to stop you guys from riding/playing, but where can a newbie learn how to participate? Thanks for any help

    Welcome to the thread Sammy. Feel free to join and play. That’s how I started couple of months back. There are 3 Tag games in GA. This one, South of 20 and the entire state wide.

    Just find out where the current Tag is located, take the motorcycle and take a picture along with coordinates and post it. Also this thread’s rule states you also need to post your new Tag, which would be something that we haven’t played already with some visual clues that can possibly help others find.
    Others should be able to pitch in and point out the rules that I may have missed.

    Let's start with defining north Georgia. For this game we are gonna say north of Interstate 20 and south of the north GA border is going to be fair game!!! Only in Georgia!! It can be on a state line but keep your bike in GA.


    The game is designed for us to get out and ride. I will post the first pic out of my files, just to get us started. After that you must go to the spot and take a pic of your bike in pretty much the same spot, then find another tag and post the new tag with your clues within 48 hrs. The first one to post the current tag AND the new tag is the winner!!! If you post the current tag and wait until the next day to post the new tag, and someone beats you to it, you lose!! Get the tag and your new tag on the same ride and post them up!!!! If a tag stays up more than 7 days I will declare it unobtainable and post a replacement tag!!!! Post your clues so we can find them!!! The idea is not to stump all of us, but to get us out and riding, and showing off some new places!!!

    Rules for the dogs are as follows!!

    1. no tags from files... you must ride to get the tag!!! and place the tag.
    2. post good clues
    3. dirt, gravel,and asphalt are all fair game because we are adv riders, not FL trailer queens, so dirt is in in this tag-a-rama... just no singletrack ,pigpaths, or illegal trails!!!!!
    4. have fun and lets keep this thing rolling!!!

    Ernbo is the map keeper. It's at the bottom of any of his post.

    I've got the map reasonably updated, there are some points on the map that will not have a picture due to the pic being lost when photo hosting sights denied access holding the old pictures hostage.
    New tires were awesome, now I'm on Pirelli Angels again, see if I can make them last through the Fall.

    There was a class going on, they are jumping today. This made me want to put my knees in the breeze again, and without having to put on camo face paint, with an M-16 under my arm and a heavy backpack across my knees.
    Anyway, happy hunting, be aware, there is another sky diving place nearby, but this one aint that one.
