Tag! I had a more ambitious one in mind, involving an event allegedly occurring in France, ca. 1858, involving a peasant girl, but . . . hey, it's RAINING! Here's an easier expedient:

"Village Chicken," is NOT the refuge of someone considered a coward in West Springfield:

Maybe it's someone who is chicken to ride in the rain? You know I'm joking. Nice tagging Mr. Jim. Us X Drag racers are bred to not like rain

Just to let you know. I went racing on a whim the last day while points were still being fought for, so all the big dogs were still racing, at my local track (Us 13 Dragway). I won the event!! Still can't believe it. Won the final race by 0.002.You should have seen their faces as I hooked my trailer back up to my Strom and headed home. Look forward to seeing you again Jim. Probably should have PMed this but now I've typed too much to start over. Sorry folks back to tagging.

LOL, Hack!

Congratulations on the win; those spectators couldn't have been more surprised than I was, when I saw you arrive in the pit area of the Summerduck drag strip, pulling that trailer with your VStrom!

Looking forward to your next visit down in these parts; great to hear from you!

Ali at Summerduck Dragway:



Now, back to your regularly-scheduled programming!

Hey, it's not raining TODAY, guys!

Absolutely!



Here's an enhanced view of the thermometer:



(Measured at about 4:00 p.m.; warmest part of the day, in sunshine.)

I'm wondering: "Do you fear the force of the wind, the lash of the rain?"

Ali's been recovered during worse weather conditions, but Dan (ORexpat) moved away!

If you mean, the comment about ORexpat, ain't no clue--just a statement of historic fact. Dan (ORexpat) grabbed and tagged, regardless of weather conditions. It's kinda cold now, but--Dan wouldn't hesitate to launch and grab, were he still around.

Now, he's in the Pacific northwest; perhaps planting the seed of Tag-o-rama there.

q.v., "Find all posts by ORexpat."

You know where Ali is tagged now, right?

Well, I never rode in deep snow, and I hate/ fear ice . . .

Just got an EFI modification module from Belgium for the RT. So I had to go for a ride. 35 degrees, no rain. Heated gear, no problem!

BTW the module (rated in the Dec issue of Motorcycle Consumer News) worked like a champ. Fixed all the fueling issues.

We parked and headed to this nearby structure:


But quickly reconsidered:


So Ali is hidden here, behind the left sign post (facing):


Covered and marked like so:


Looking left:


Looking right:


The clue:

Ali wanted to drive to Danbury Forest. I said ok.

Happy Tagging!

Ali, being an aquatic creature, encouraged me to go check out the gauge.
