tag withdrawal symptoms....

Speaking of bridges:



Last night, watched an old Woody Allen movie, "Manhattan" (1979), and all I could think of was that at least a dozen tags were used as sets! I think I'm losing my mind!

p.s., a famous line from that movie would haunt Woodie in future years: "I'm dating a girl who does homework!"....

Was a beautiful, crystal clear day for a ride around the Bronx. So,

Here's the New Tag:

No takers?

Seriously, no one has full Gerbings ready and waiting for such a nice tag?

Are GPS coordinates needed? Wiseblood, that KTM of yours is supposed to be able to handle all kinds of adverse condtions, including cold!

I think finding this one is easy, It's just the weather isn't cooperating.

Huh? The sun is shining, there is no wind, the roads have been cleared of salt by the recent rain, and the tag is only a few miles from many of you. And it's the weekend, so work is no excuse!

Just think of it like skiing, where you would consider it "balmy" if the temperature was 32 degrees! Why I know some enthusiasts who ski in 15 below zero weather. It's all about gear.

Remember, this is ADV. I think that stands for Adventure, right?
