I don't pick up tags very often anymore because I don't get to do a lot of recreational riding- but even more importantly, I can't come up with any good tag locations. Most of my tags are extremely pedestrian. So I leave it up to you guys...

Was the rider a precision instrument of speed and agility, using 100% of his available traction even while stopped, with a superhero aura causing passers-by to swoon and faint and women's panties to magically vanish, never forgetting to use his turn signals while riding the razor's edge around every corner?

Yes? Then it probably wasn't me.

Actually yeah, it was. I was 5 minutes late by your clock, hauling ass and was watching out to see if that fire truck that went by had any little brothers coming out to tag along. Sorry I didn't see you.

If you can't see it, there is a rather large water tower behind the main structure. You might not hear a pin drop here, but you can reach out and touch someone.

I have to say, I used google maps to spot an antenna on a known location. Hard to see, very. So water tower, and what else

Poe would say that Raleigh and Pizarro were both as off-course as you fine knight.

It's probably the VStrom that's causing those guys to want to kick your ass.

Nobody riding today? It was a lovely misty sprinkley kind of day today. The overgrown backroads of Collin, Fannin, and Grayson counties had a level of green and fog that rivaled the english countryside today errrr, maybe not that dreary, but still very green.

If you see my clock in the quoted picture, and the time that I posted, you'll see that it is very likely to be on my route home from the airport.

I rode to work today, worked 12 hours and rode home. Had a nice ride both directions.
