Off Topic Warning

Just a stolen bike heads-up guys and gals
I got phreakshack back in the divorce settlement, but my '92 TDM850 that was trapped in the garage has wandered off/been rustled.

Anyone who sees one in the WNC being parted out or a red one (with safety wire stitching on the fairing and a NOISY homemade 2-into-1)
Please please drop me a line!!

Or if anyone works a parts counter and sees anyone that is looking for PARTS for a TDM

Dang that sucks Phreak.

On another off topic subject..

Wife's sister is moving to Charlotte. They would love to rent while they shop for a house but the rental market is full. Any leads near South Charlotte for rentals or fixers with 4 bedrooms would be appreciated.

Five day bump from page 3!

Did all you HˇLLBˇLLˇES get washed away in the rain?

I've looked for it a short online but no joy.

This is not an armchair tag. There are no street views, unless google is on the FSR's.

Dang... I've seen the tag languish in the hills in mid-winter, but when it's reasonably nice out - if a bit wet???

If you look around 475B you might see this, a mile or so west of the US276 intersection:



You fellas are slacking if you're letting them sit long enough for me to get there first.

New tag tonight

Well gentlemen, it's apparent from the sheer volume of views and replies that y'all have better things to do this weekend.

Since no ones paying attention, time for a wee bit of a punt......





























































West


Some of our far western brethren have decided that they no longer have time to ride. Life gets in the way, and I of all people understand that. I've been unable to even consider participating in this game until recently due to work/travel requirements. So this is all in the spirit of good fun.



That being said, I dug through my archives and came up with a suitably tempting tag. Hopefully it will entice those semi-retired taggers out of the woodwork. However, since it seems no one in this particular area of the state still owns or remembers how to ride a motorcycle, it will likely be safe until one of the flatlanders gets up here to claim it



























So, without further adieu, I present the new tag. To those of you pictured, be thankful I got your better sides












Mr WannaB, I'm speaking to you specifically in case you hadn't picked up on it

Hmmmm. I highly resemble that remark. I might just have to ride the KLR into the cabins tomorrow. Question is where would I move it to if I happen to grab it?

Grab

First grab in a long time. Feels good. Thanks Whitebread for making it impossible for me to ignore. Now to find a file tag that hasn't been used before or at least one that hasn't been used in a while. BTW are we still using tag numbers? If so, what number are we up to?

Don't chuck it too far downhill. I'm in town and on 2 wheels for the next week or two

Tag numbers dropped off 10 or 12 pages back, and the front page listing was last updated in 09. Not exactly sure where we're at now.

Edit: The tag you place will be 1086 by my count. Counted forward from last numbered tag (1066) in post 22261.

New Tag

Here is the new tag. Only clue I'll give right now is it is off a road that shares its name with the community. Most of you will access this road from a highway that has 2 digits that add up to 10. I can't remember if I have posted this one before but it has been well over a year ago if I had.
