I've got a couple of VA tag locations that require going through NC to get to them.

Well that was a tough one for sure...I wish i would have waited a bit longer and asked for better clues because later Fetch did get more specific...by that time i was already coming home... there was a huge lapse of internet coverage or the lack of it where i was so i was out of the loop ...by the time i got internet back...then it was clear where the tag was...I pretty much waved the white flag...the only time i have ever not found a tag in any of the games i've played so that kinda sucked...

Hell as tags go this is in my back yard but Renazco Racing has had my seat for the last month making it nice and comfy. I get it back Thursday but I'm out of town till Friday. I bet it's moved by then but who knows. Nice to see that BMW tourer running down some gravel to place that.

Hey y'all. In light of the worsening weather should I move the tag to another location? I figured someone would have ventured out to get it this past weekend.

Heck no, that's not how this works. I think you put it in a great location, if I had a seat I'd have owned it already. Someone will go get it, if not I'll go end of week. Weekend looks like mid-60's. Cold weather tags in the less populated areas of the state always seem to take a little bit.

You mean you only have one bike? Ride it without the seat, as you said it's in your backyard.

Sitting on your battery can be comfortable, and a downright electrifying experience is performed correctly.

I also said I was out of town till Friday. It's in my county lets put it that way, with gravel, it's still probably an hour+ away. But yes only one bike at the moment But heck whether I get to get it or not...still doesn't need to be moved to an "easier spot", that just feels wrong.

I guess that depends on whether you feel it should be a difficult thing for most to get to or it should be kept in play and moving around. Is it about riding or keeping it well hidden?

I suppose I understand that. But my personal opinion is the biggest part of this game is going to places you wouldn't normally ride. I've been on the road this one is on but in my Jeep but it would never occur to me to ride my street bike there. But seems like there are some good paved twisty stuff getting there, so why not.

The Jet location from the end of Oct stood for 20 days

The Union Point Park Tag stood for 27 days

The current tag has been up for only 11 days.

And that's just recent stuff...I still say it should stand till someone goes and gets it no matter where it is but that's just me. I suppose there is a point where a sneaky or diffucult location causes lots of buzz on the "where is it front" but then after so long of it sitting the chatter dies and most are just waiting for someone else to go get it.

The tag is an easy find. It took a few minutes, but it is clearly visible on Google Earth.

I tossed the tag up to Marshall knowing that the nice weather could turn. It looks like it has gotten nasty today. However, with MMM happening this weekend, I can't see the tag lasting much longer. Just sayin...
