I'm actually thinking of an '09 KLR but can't seem to get good info on them yet.

Still a heckuva deal at $5k though!

Not much out there on the 09's yet. I wouldn't expect any changes from the later 08's. Maybe they'll source out the rubber in the turn signals and windshield grommets from a better source. I think they got the ring issue resolved in the late 08's.

Jimmy, you got the gift of gab.

I dunno if Michhub's paint washs off, but I can sure tell you I Melted coming home from work today. Being a motorcycle commuter and working for the post office I see all kinds of weather.

Hardy, thanks for helping with the clues. They will be PMing you for info.

pplasim, I know Mich had you in mind for last nights tag. Thats about as close to the New Kent Co. line as you can get. I didn't move the tag that far, because I want you to play with us. How about meetin us halfway.

Manganos, where are you? You know the secret don't tell.

Folks, google will give you the official site for Medal of Honor recipients.
Search "Jewish" or "Jew". You will get them listed by wars. Choose "Civil War". Look at the six. One of them will have recieved his medal for deads done in a local battle. Several roads intersect at the town where the battle took place. Lots of markers within a 200yrds. of the town named for the battle.

Now your only excuse not to go out and get it is the rain.

Couldn't be any easier !!

Great clues, pretty much handed it to everyone. I think if the weather was a wee bit better we'd already be working on the next tag I'd be out there myself picking it up but I've got to mejugmhiusn and jklukuljj and poikljegf, besides that, I've got laundry in the dryer, otherwise.....

Wow. You surprised us. Welcome to our game. You will find we are most hospitable. We especially like folks with mega gigs of "file" photos. (Yah hear that, Freak? We're looking to roll out the red carpet for our neighbor in Chester.)

Now mike ,J2Jonner, Mich, and myself will have additional competition.

Hey guys, dirt riders do it better in the rain!

Thanks. I had the location at 9 this morning and didn't go out to grab it. It sat there tempting me all day! Had to go out and grab it rain or shine. Stand by for the next tag soon.

Easy one in the rain

Ok here we go, my first tag post. Go easy on me. Since the rain slowed it down a little today i figured we would pick it up some with an easy one.

I've heard a short walk from here will get you a good burger, or at least according to Roy. The Young folks like to play near the pond.

Rider929 works at the AMF Co. bakery division off Laburnum so maybe its him, I'm mostly East end...Airport, Seven Pines, Sandston etc....unless I'm chasing the West end tags.....
I saw you on Meadow Rd near Grapevine Rd a few weeks ago. I was in a Verizon pickup truck getting ready to take some measurements for FIOS :) I think I gave you a thumbs up!
