Way to go Rev.

I think you need one more box bolted on the KLR.


So where are we headed now?

DANG!!!

These things sit there all week, I buy bike luggage, take vacation time, map out a 750 mile ride and, welp, there you have it.

Nice grab.

0 for 2,000,001.

Someone go grab that stupid thing in Matewan, WV so I have to COMPLETELY rearrange...

Flashback, you said you were heading to KY, right? The Appalachian Tag is on the WV/KY border almost. Please snag it before I head out the door in the morning.

The SouthEast tag is down on the other side of Charlotte. If someone can go grab that and completely put me out of my misery, I'd appreciate it.

RE the boxes .. the small ammo cans mounted onto the crash bars was kinda an experiment .. and man I like them .. I don't know how or why but my bike is (finally) about rock-solid passing big rigs .. I used to get a death wobble, now I don't .. has to be something aerodynamic about two large bricks mounted like a fairing I guess .. lol ..

.. as to where we are headed .. honestly, I don't know .. lol .. will be surfing for a good drop tonight .. OhNoes (Doug) says he wants to go for another ride tomorrow after work to drop the tag, so no file pic unless plans go haywire ..

.. Wibby .. brother .. sorry to change up your plans man .. but I earned this one .. lol .. I was gonna get this one even if I got Bruced ..

.. now to go edit the grab with the details ..

Not like I wasn't aware it could happen... It just sat there all week all quiet like.

Just discovering that the NCNC tag can go into VA...

Nice going RevBill. You are right, there is a lot of history setting there on that little hill. They were gathering there to worship almost 20 years before the "Shot Heard Round The World" was fired in 1775. I live less than 5 miles from the church.

NC has moved twice since I decided to run for it and the new one hasn't been dropped yet.
Eastern NC has been grabbed and not dropped yet.

Dang. Went from having a two day ride mapped out to sitting here in a holding pattern...

Yeah, no kidding.
The ONLY days I've taken off this year that weren't to help someone else do something have been planned around tags. It's a disease, but fortunately the treatment overlaps nicely with what I like to do anyway.

Start a "Bruce" tour of some of previous tags that you want to visit.

I may do that tomorrow, to some extent. Just got all whiny this morning and went for a local tag after seeing my well-laid plans vanish like a recent 401k...
