Eddie was one of a kind and is sorely missed.

Well, at least you didn't tag the diner. After I pulled away, I suddenly thought I might have to ride back...

I almost did to try and make up for missing you, but StBob tagged and Doc got it already.

Yeah, that diner looked familiar! So, since I didn't know where we were when you took the new tag shot, and figured out the location myself, can I go get it? We know how long tags sit on that particular island!

lol, I think we should let someone else discover the joys of SI.

Clue:
This was the route we took through SI. At night, it's clear and curvy.

How could you ride and do la tour of that part of SI and not do the ascent/descent of Howard Ave and Hillside Ave?

You also should have done commemorative 1/4 mile runs on Arden Ave., which was THE race place back in the 60's.

And you should have set your alarm for 2:00 a.m. and come ride with us, instead of riding your keyboard the next day! Seriously, you missed a great one. You couldn't believe the first 10 minutes, through the tunnels under Jersey City. Un-fucking-believable! Really! I don't know how Rick finds these places.

Go get the tag, and video that route you talked about. Could go viral!

Got it
La Tourette Golf Course
1001 Richmond Hill Rd,
Staten Island



With a club named like that, I had to capture a golfer taking a shot

Thanks for the tips, Walter. Grymes Hill looks promising.

Ahhh.... that's why i didn't find it! I only looked in New York City for the tag.


(You know, there's like FIVE golf courses in NYC! Yet, not one OHV park. Fuckers.)

Fact meets fiction at this tag, could this really be the final resting place of Constable Crane??

For your bonus shot I want to see his tombstone

I know some of you guys whine when the tags not on your doorstep, but this one is for the fellow Bridge & Tunnel guys, and the more adventurous Big Apple riders



Clue (when the link is working)
