Thanks, Dom. It's a fun bike, I just wish there was somewhere decent nearby for me to ride it. The poor thing just sits under its cover all of the time.
By the way, you were only about 100yds off on that tag above. It was back there behind that Charger.

I had an 04 XR650l stolen right out of my driveway. I had paid it off the month before and went from comp and collision to liability. It was def my favorite of all the bikes I've owned. I feel you about the lack of riding. I moved here with my KLR and sold it within the first three months of getting here. Just not enough decent dirt close by.

I was actually in the right spot I just didn't take a photo. I don't know what my deal was I must have taken my dumb pills. Anyhoo I'm glad you grabbed that tag. I'm thinking of heading over for the other one after dinner if I have time.

Redoubt # 3 was one of six Confederate earthwork fortifications constructed during 1861 and 1862 across the center of James Island from a tributary of James Island Creek on Croskey Royall’s Plantation, south to Stiles Mellichamp’s Plantation on Clark Sound. In November 1863, it was armed with one 24-pounder smoothbore cannon.

These earthworks were collectively known as the East Lines. They were designed, with other earthworks located to the west, to protect Charleston from a Federal attack originating from the Stono River. In late 1863, when the stronger New Lines were constructed nearer the Stono River, the East Lines became obsolescent. This redoubt and the rest of Charleston’s defenses were evacuated on February 17, 1865.

Ugh I was convinced I knew where this was until I got there and realized the sign was wrong. Drove all around james island in the dark looking for this one. I brought my camera and tripod to take a cool night picture then I got to the location and a bunch of damn dogs were howling and carrying on. Had to snap a quick pic and take off.

Yeah it's hard to get a nice clear shot. It's such a cool location.

Picked that up yesterday, and road around looking for a good tag, then I ran out of road.
Use Heriot st to find it.

There is a new river-side bar hiding out somewhere in Charleston. Hope you can find it

Yes, thank you both. It is a DR650 I picked up Saturday. I couldn't think up a new cool tag that would not be a re-hash of a Lowcountry or State tag, so figured I might advertise for a cool new spot I found a couple months ago.
