I'm not sure who the author of the original KML file was, but this is entirely their work, I just trimmed out the markers. Both the RLD and RHD are annotated therein.

Happy new year all!
Thanks -- hope all is well on the left coast! We've left the light on for you. . ..

SB12, well done! Boatman, looks like you missed by minutes. . ..

As with all SB12 grabs, be sure to check the parking lots of all nearby chicken, pizza or vietnamese establishments for the technicolored KLR . . ..

(or follow the oil trail of his Bandit. . ..)

No problem,,,,I messed up the clue and ended up on Grizzly Ct.

Once I got it figured out, I went all the way around the "block" before I found the entrance. I saw the fresh track as I pulled in and knewit wasa bruce. I hung there for a couple minutes and a kid showed up on a 2 stroke Kawi and said I pulled in less than 5 minutes after you left. Him and his buddies were wondering what was going on.

I knew he'd fairly quick so I went for a ride out around Warrenton.

Grab: Marker on east side of Joplin Road, Manassas, Virginia, 3.1 miles SE of Bristow Road.

It was 18 degrees, and Ali had a mouthful of the whitestuff (which you'll see in the next tag, never melted!):


And we were off like a cannon to the next tag:

Look under light cloak of mulch, here:


Marked with an "A", like so:

Looking away from tag:





Clue to finding the cannon and grabbing Ali:

This model 1905 three inch field gun saw service in the Mexican Campaign against Pancho Villa, and was originally obtained by a local veterans organization during the mid-1950s. In the early 1980s, an American Legion Bicentennial Post obtained stewardship of the cannon and initiated a restoration project that included new wooden wheels handcrafted by a master wheelwright. The cannon and memorial are maintained as reminders of the sacrifices of our veterans in maintaining freedom around the world.

Happy Tagging!

Glad you see the method to my madness! I can now say without hesitation that Hippo Hands and heated grips are like cheating. Simply cheating. 18 degrees and I couldn't even run the heated grips on high -- too hot. . ...

Tag; off a road that might have been named for: Monte - - - - -, a large pre-Columbian archaeological site in the Santa Cruz Xoxocotlán Municipality in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca (17.043° N, 96.767°W).

Nearby, men say, one might find an Honest, Reliable Mechanic, but no such claim is made by Ali's host. (Yet, I believe the axiom still holds at Ali's current venue; great and affordable tire service (their pneumatic bead-breaker makes casings surrender immediately).

Ali, before a service bay:






South of the image above, across a parking lot, stands a tree swaddled with a reflective high-visibility vest; Ali burrows therein:





Tell-tale "A" on ground:



The establishment is not always so quiet:





The host chats with a guest at a seasonal cocktail hour:



This is the only motorcycle service facility I know of where LIVE ENTERTAINMENT is provided to customers in the service bay:





(Last several images from phone camera; regrettably, the images of the pole dancer did not materialize. Take my word; she was athletic and artistic, as was the aerial acrobat shown.)

This tag completed, I join in praise of Hippo Hands--comfort, without compromising handlebar controls.
