A pic of your bike in the same position as the poster's bike.

Here it is.

Two words "Gothic Carpenter"
In a lost in time village with a fast name. A river of the same name runs through it. Borders one county named after a Lord and one after a colorful Duke. Go get it and take the next tag over 150 miles away or I'll just scoop it up again easily. Hey what do you win if you beat everyone to the tag 10 times?

That took one Google. Google says it's 74.9 mi – about 1 hour 42 mins from my house. I think I'll have a glass of wine and enjoy the A/C instead.

Found it. Hope I can make a run for it, as the building looks to be worth the trip. Nice job!

154 mi – about 3 hours 25 mins for me

It's nice that it's pretty easy to find, though -- keeps the game moving!

Oops the part about the Duke is wrong. He was actually a Prince of ?... from the house of ?... and later a King. That part doesen't really help anyway because every other county in VA is named after some royal or noble English F**ker.
Maybe VA can become part of England again, free health care...spend some pounds and pay $20,000 for a bike...with expensive insurance if it's big...pay like $8 a gallon...go to Canada without any questions.We could all change our accents and have a pub on every corner serving ales and stouts... have speed cameras everywhere for the good of the "comunistwealth" Ah now that would not be the life or the better outcome if the damn loyalist had their way back then.

Scooter is my Piaggio BV250 with large 16 inch great handling wheels and rubber. Tops out at a steady unstressed cruise at around 85mph, but the speedometer is broken. The day may come when I actually get pulled over for speeding on this thing. I'm gonna be like you're pulling scooters over now officer,what is this world coming too? Knock on wood it hasn't happened yet even though I use it locally like more of a maniac than any of my other way faster bikes.

I'm thinking Scooter Canonball across HWY 50 "Americas loneliest HWY" in september that I just found out about. Too bad it leaves from SF. CA. ending in Rehoboth beach, DE.
