streetview is available for all roads except the one that the VFD is on, but it is also paved. The cemetery we went to is on a dirt road, but even it is navigable on a street bike. I was on a vtx1300.....



EDIT:::::: I just opened google earth and entered mossy pond vfd, and it pulled up the wrong location....
try using google.com and then use the address to find it...
Google earth is showing the correct road in the wrong location....

When I entered this tag, I said "google is your friend"....
Man, was I wrong.
Google earth puts you on the wrong road (with the correct name)
google.com gives you the correct road number, but leaves out one important word in the road name...

Bottom line,,, if you need more clues, let me know..

I may try and retrieve him by Friday if no one else has done so. If nothing else since you were on a VTX I can ride down on mine if everything works out here at home and I get my chores done.

Like I said earlier, all roads are paved.... the cemetery is just added photos, not part of the tag

The GRAND POO BAH (yours truly) of SATOR takes a few months hiatus from tagging and the dang SATOR falls apart...

Y'all are pretty pitiful... PERFECT riding weather and all you can do is sit at your keyboards and talk about who's got the time...


I guess I'll have to unlimber one of the GS's and grab a few tags to show all you taggin' sissies how it's done again...

Or not....

I'm prolly gonna be out from under all this mess I created for myself in another couple of months.... So... In the meantime.... Y'all carry on and DON'T MAKE ME COME OVER THERE!!!!

Get back to taggin'!!!

If no one gets to Mr P before Wednesday I plan on riding down there after lunch. He has been there quite long enough. He should be bored by now.

My plans are still on for the retrieval & relocation of Mr P after lunch tomorrow. So don't bring out the SATOR memorial just yet.

Heading out shortly to run some errands, and then down to get Mr P a little later. I will be back here later this evening to post pics, and tell about the new tag location.
