Hmm. I have a DR that already has a tail rack. And it's really great at creek crossings. Hmmmmmm.

That topbox that replaces the pillion is one of the coolest accessories ever. Take good care of it. (I'll want it when you decide it's time for a different bike. ) I saw the bike in the Iwanna, and my dialing finger was itching, but my super-secret off-shore motorcycle account was pretty tapped out. Umm, is pretty tapped out.

Now that you have a Silverwing (a real SilverWing , no offense to our scooter brothers and sisters ), you need to readjust your thinking about what is within striking distance. (I do remember your age-related limitations.)

Take good care of that little Wing.

All the best,
Chris

The topbox is definately nice,- when I park the bike I can put my helmet in it, then put my riding jacket and pants in the side cases. It's nice to have a bike now that I can take on the highway without ear-splitting engine and wind noise, clouds of blue smoke, and easily provoked speed wobbles. (in a few months my uncle is giving me his neglected '75 DT250 which will take care of that stuff just fine Im sure) The creek crossings werent so bad though, since I got to watch my dad ride his Kawasaki Concours across first.

P.S. you may want to make another post soon to avoid bad luck -

caycek5 you really went for seclusion on this one. Even had my GPS sending me in circles.!!
This is the Babcock Building, it was built after Robert Mills building was and had reached capacity. Robert Mills was the architect that I had the clues for and I figured it would get someone close. The city is trying to sell the campus for urban development now. The Robert Mills Building is not included in the sale, but the Babcock Building is. There are some neat photos online of inside that people have taken either legally or not.

Congratulations on getting your game back. I might have to meet rvrhwki and come upstate and take it again. I bet you won't bring it south again.

Nice tags everyone! I've been covered up in work and not doing much riding other than commuting, between the Keith Urban concert on Wed, the REO Speedwagon show this weekend, plus various parties, funerals, and I'm supposed to go down south of Atlanta and be an extra in a TV show on Mon and Tues.

But the map is updated, as usual tell me if I misplaced anything.

BTW, Skunk, for the map ,the latest tag was on Hwy 221 Alt just up from Cowpens battleground on your way to Cliffside, NC, Gas station right at the state line.

If you use Mapsource and zoom in on that portion of the hwy, it actually shows a key for fuel station ( I found that after I posted it)

I actually found it last night about a half hour after I asked for a clue.

I left Columbia around 9-ish after some errands, I got a little mixed up in Chesnee and followsed 221 into NC. I stopped at the Little Cricket and showed the lady working the counter my directions. She said Cliffside is in NC and several customers agreed, but my directions say Cliffside in Gaffney. Second light take a right, thank you and on my way.

I am back home now and will post a new tag tomorrow. Trying to think of what to tag.

Yep, We got caught sleeping on this one! I didn't see it coming.
I guess we've just expanded our playground to include the midlands now!

If you found it last night after 9, those must be some super-HID kit on your bike.
