Sounds like whining to me!!

Really... I don't blame you. I caged to work too... 3rd time since May.
40 feels like 33 and rain? I'll pass thank you.

no question it is whining.
but -
my rule is ride in the rain or ride in the dark but don't ride in the dark and rain. has kept me alive for a long time.

my intention is to do something when i get home if it isn't pouring.

Noob here with a question. I see in the "rules" that it says that the first person to post, "wins". So, I don't get the tag part. If someone grabs the tag first, but a later person posts his/her pic first, what happens to the tag? How does the tag get moved around?

Thanks,

Dave

the tag is the picture. the crab keychain is an add-on that is supplemental to the game but does let you know if you were first there. first picture post is the winner.
Code - did i get that right?

Hey Dave,
The tag IS the picture of the bike at the spot. First to post a picture of their bike at the spot has the tag. The crab is kinda fun fluff, but not significant as far as the tag.
Hope that gets it for you.

here it is

in a fit of stupidity, and because I didn't want to hold the tag any longer, I rode out in the PM rain to set the new tag. Not where I originally intended but it will do and put the burden of keeping the game moving on you guys.





this hunting lodge is not located in Mt Airy.

crabby is at the base of the sign"s left leg as you face it from the road.

Pawnbroker, an easy get for you

Just to be clear, no more crabby correct? I'm tempted to find out how waterproof my gear is tomorrow before work...

Crab is still in play, BUT only as long as everybody continues to move it. It's been voluntary so far.
Man...It's a good morning for testing gear... Rainin like a MF here. Stay dry.

Nice bike. A friend of mine test rode one, it was a wheelie machine.

How do you like it?
