Backing up my claim.

The site of the tag is General Thomas Sumter's gravesite. He was known as "the Fighting Gamecock", hence the reference in the original tag. Interesting little site, cruise through a neighborhood and there is a small park with the site.

Thanks for letting me play, and the rig is a 2006 Ural, hasn't been restored, just dirty with lots of orange patina due to the quality of Russian chrome.

-Mike

NEW TAG - Enjoy



New tag just in time for a relaxing weekend ride. This historic building is named for three men including two famous inventors, and a former motorcycle land speed record holder (topping out at 64mph at the time). Four years later he more than doubled that speed with a new record of over 136mph on a V-8 motorcycle of his own design and build.

A closer look inside the building:



Ride safely.....
-Mike

Tag!

Heyy this is kinda fun!

That would be the "Curtiss-Wright Hangar" a stones throw away from Columbia Metro. Airport.




Sorry for the shoddy quality. Decided to go for this one at the last minute... all I had was my cell!

New tag!

Any Hootie fans out there in ADVland?



Use caution when getting this tag... because the Street is certainly not Long, but you could definitely see it on a Cracked Rear View mirror!

Damn, Looks like y'all have been busy today. Good tag. I found it with a little help from my Brother-in-Law and wife. She told me to go ahead and go but it would be 10:00 before I got on the road and that is a long ride on the highway. It would be about 2am before I got back.

TAG - late night stealth mission



Got home from a night out and found my earlier tag had already been claimed. Luckily, I recognized the new one as soon as I saw it, The Longstreet theater on the campus of USC (Sumter and Greene streets). Figured a late night run might be in order. Boy, I like this game, getting me out and riding.....

New tag tomorrow afternoon, I've got to make a run out to the new location in the morning, stay tuned.

-Mike

You can probably safely claim the title "First Rig on USC Campus"

Look at that map... WOW! It's definitely time for us real SOUTHerners (read: Not G-vegas) to take over this game... Maybe I'll snag it and head to Myrtle beach!

No, it's been out of my county far too long, bring it back where I can ride!

Well I almost went to Columbia last night to bring it back, but it looks like I would have gotten Bruced before I would have been able to post the tag.

NEW TAG - What a great day to ride....



Sorry it took me a little longer to ride to this tag, but it was so nice my rig didn't want to stop.

Clue for the new tag: "DUMPY" those this place may look, one type of dog will always feel at home here......

Good luck and safe riding,
-Mike

It is findable with those clues. Google is your friend. (I'm on my wife's crackberry or I'd show you a pic. I haven't figured out how to really use this thing, though.)

Keep Googlin' -- and thinkin'.
