My ass! I hardly consider a 5 hour round trip and $17 toll "in my backyard".

It'd be quicker to ride to WV!

Well considering the NA tag was in Canada last week, a 2.5 hour one way trip is pretty much in our back yard I might be tempted to go get it if I had a street bike, not sure I want to ride my dirt bike that far Guess the only solution is for me to go get a Moto Guzzi Griso It's a big sacrifice on my part I know, but I'm willing to do it for the good of the NA Tag game and it's followers

I guess some folks tag, and some don't.....
It's 180 miles from me, and if I could, I would go for it.

the Bay has been crossed a couple times just for H.R. braggin' rights in T-O-R...


it's like 90 miles from 64/13 intersection...


but then with the N.A. tag you would have to make an effort to place a new one....which sounds to be a bit much ...hehehehheeee


Roger, Tommy, Dawg....UpSt8????

c'mon guys.....

I'm not chasing anything after doing 300 miles in the woods chasing other bikes at ridiculously high speeds
Blinkerfluid/Underkil- Do you recognize the orange bike in the center background........


Yes, it's your old KTM, the guy that bought it from you is a friend. He did the ride last year also, my first time this year.


Had a great time, did the option Sat, only thought about doing it on Sun. One guy in our group broke his leg and wrist. We also saw a KTM down in a ravine about 50' ...... the rider was OK.

I showed my wife the pic of the frame. She didn't see the beauty in it that my son and I did. In fact, now that I think of it....I think she may have stopped talking to me.

It's tempting..... Do I REALLY need that "ambition" stuff though???

I was in Steel Horse Classics a couple of weeks ago and they have a hotted up Griso on consignment. Black with red pin stripe. Take it for a test ride.

Then, I play until Friday, which is the day I begin the trip home. Usually I pull in Saturday evening, go to church Sunday and then REST!!!
I am always up for a trip to Deal's Gap. Trailering two bikes up so I could do some sport laps on the C-14 and hit the trails on the KLR would be my ideal week. I would be glad to help put something together for next year!
