Towns End is above average. I eat there 2-4 times a week. LOL. Stopped by Speedy Pig in Fayetteville yesterday coming back from Pine Mountain with the kids and brought home a bunch of their smokin wings. ;) Bike content follows. Rode to Suches last Sunday. Hat a temp light just short of Riders Hill so stopped to top off the burp tank. Coming home I got an oil pressure light at a stop light Oil is full but I don't remember the last time I changed it so its off to the store for some 20-50 synthetic and coolant this morning.

Did you check the switch??? Everytime I cross a creek/river I get an oil light. I have to knock the water out of the connector to get it to act properly again.

Tag Found

And now, getting things back to a Tag-O-Rama thread...


Waaaay down in the woolds, in the town of Woolsey, down
the road of Woolsey Rd, which turns into Upper Woolsey Rd,
where they have 3 ft Copperheads in the middle of the road
and dead...is a little path 100ft from the bridge of the Flint
River.

Turn left at the pine tree? Fortunately, it was the only pine in
the area.

Hello there, just looking at getting into this Tag-O-Rama stuff.

That is where I thought it was after studying the map given the clues. I tend to head north 99% of the time I'm going for a ride but need to head south some to. I didn't get a chance to scope it out though, ended up working around the house.

Just for clarification I did find a Lower Woolsey Road. It is just a little section between Richard Petty Blvd and Wildwood Road. If I understood Hardwaregrrl correctly it was implied that one did not exist or atleast she didn't know about it.

Looking forward to joining in on this game soon.

Shannon

And we look forward to you joining the group. Could have been a
minor booboo by hardwaregrrl, she's a busy lady with mud in her
eye from all the hill climbing, dirt jumping, creek crossing, butt
kickin she does on that BMW.

Not sure if Richard Petty is classified as Henry Co. cause that would
fall out of our zones for placng tags. Good that you recognized it
though cause I had to search every road that crossed the Flint River.
It was whooping my butt.

But we're glad to have ya and jump right on in with the fun.
Any questions, feel free to ask and if anyone screws with ya,
suck it up and screw right back with em, cause we play harder
than we ride.

Except The Ernbos. They play hard. Work harder. Ride harderer.

New Tag

Back to the food thread....kinda.

OK. Super easy and I'm surprised this is still open.

It's in Cobb County.
It's big.
It ain't a hamburger.

P.S. It's the only way most Cobb Countians can find their way home.








Now about the beautiful mascots.
I could not place them in a good spot because landscapers were working
in the spot I wanted. Therefore they are behind this location. There is a
trash bin in an enclosure and a green recycle bin.




Directly across the street is a streetlight pole on the sidewalk. At the base
under some grass are our lovely ladies.

Too funny! I almost put the tag there instead of in Roswell. I also could not believe it had not been used before.

Looks like it's a race to Cobb county! I'm stuck at work so can't get it

Next up, the rockettes venture just a stone's throw to the base of the big rock to pay their respect to a fallen warrior from my old agency

Oh that will be our first stop. Got a friend in from Texas and introducing
her to the joy of tag-o-rama...so thanks everyone for not getting this
tag. Then we will proceed through Helen, Brasstown Bald and end up
on the Cherohala and Dragon before descending back to the Atl.

And thank you for patrolling and keeping the rest of us knuckleheads
safe. You are appreciated sir...even if from afar. Please know that.
