Grab!




Yesterday I figured I'd leave things to folks with working motorcycles but after finishing re-assembling and re-hanging the engine yesterday evening, and adjusting the valves and timing chain this afternoon I decided this would be a perfect opportunity to run-in the new headgaskets.

On the way back I passed a possible inmate headed south on 17. Hope you weren't looking for gator, but if you were lets hope you found the ride as nice as I did. Thanks Mica!

Another nice grab by MND - this one near the edge of the NOVA Tag boundary.

Was he a handsome chap on a yellow DRZ around 1 or 2 between Obannon and Cannonball Gate? If so, that was me. But I was just out for a ride. It occurred to me once I got out that way I may actually be close to the tag, but didn't remember the actual address of the speedway.

No, it would have been around 8:20pm, a light or two south of the 28 intersection.

BMW, I think.

Tag

Up up!


And away! (Taking off on runway 30)


Looking north:


Looking south:


Gator is hiding from the gnats under this lost license plate.


This is about as close as I could get to this end of the runway, coming from the south. They've moved the fence line out so I wasn't able to take the road paralleling Vortac road further west and get some really good shots.

I know the answer to that one, it's "NO." But as to what the clue means, NFI!?

I know what it means as I used to hear it from my old work place when they was a practicing, but that would be telling......

I do have to wonder thou if we should place tags in locations near gates to controlled access points to "sensitive" locations, we already had one slight run in with The Man and lost the coin from awhile ago.. just a thought...

in the meantime while everyone is contemplating the above clue...here's something I just put together to pass the time.....
