More information here. It's a full day (I don't have) for me from The Valley so here's hoping a southerner can go drag this tag down for us. FireFighter217?

Somebody PM'ed me yesterday and said that they have the tag. Might have to post it for them, seems his 'puter is messing up or something.

Does anyone know if this tag has been picked up...? If not... I'm coming off the sidelines and riding my Harley over to pick it up on Saturday.

Don't matter according to rules...

No It hasn't. Go over and get it.

Sorry, MexTex, I don't know if that is a file photo you posted or not, but I sure don't see a motorcycle.

#4 - File photos are NOT permitted. You gotta ride to play this game.


#5 - The motorcycle in the picture must get to the tag location under its own power.

I know some of y'all are new to the game and perhaps don't understand it. It is a little confusing right now since we are just starting out with our own Texas game. A good example, I think is the Pennsylvania Tag-o-Rama. Those guys are having a lot of fun!

the actual tag photo is post #38, with the bike and the sign in it. and remember, if it aint posted then it aint grabbed. you could be the first one to get the tag, but if you aint the first to post it.... well then you just got bruced!! have fun. be careful this game is addictive.

What! You don't see the motorcycle? It's there, look closely it's the green one about 1 mm high right there in the grass.

Not claiming the tag, see above.

Yes it is a file photo.

Yes, it sure does seem to be confusing to some.

Since we're on the subject, I don't think we need the 24 hour limit rule since whoever posts the picture first gets the tag. Simple. Texas being so large presents us with a unique challenge in that someone could do a long slab ride only to be beat out for the tag but, hey, life isn't fair...

The 24 hour rule is tough, but it keeps the game going. I rode 535 miles to grab the tag in Brock, then the next morning I made a 90 mile round trip to post my tag. I think I wore my ass out.

I guess the 24 rule is ok. I for one would never take care of the new tag and have it ready to go before setting out to grab the tag.

Of course if we think this might be done by some neerdowell we could come up with more rules.

I guess if no one tags that one soon I will have to go to the agony of bringing it up to the central texas area.

Go for it!

I was hoping a local would grab it, but I could always use a ride out to central Texas.

It's about riding and learning.

Good grab.
