Nice! Maybe we can have fun passing it back and forth between each other. I'll leave a special beer too at the next tag.

I started riding them in BlueGrass.... So riding on twisties is the best way to learn what they can do.... Food shopping was in the 'Burg over 33 or over 250the 3 sisters.... The folks that ride most trikes never really learn how they handle.... Don & I ride just about year around , motos are our primary vehicles.. Avg miles a year is 28k -38k.....

But it can be a great work out.. You have to have a strong upper body to ride it right.... You are pushing 1500 lbs around turns that want to pitch you about... Body English is your friend.. ...

Mine Handles great!!! Just like it's on rails
Handles like our old 911S did.....




Also had a Scooter loaned to me by Wayne's cycle once.. It was a blast...
LOL.. I put 50 miles on it just going up and down my old driveway...

Cool, I guess you just have to get a feel for them and what they can and can't do. Yeah I guess lot's of people with toys like that don't ride them nearly enough, looks like you both don't have that problem and have a blast. Honda didn't put that flat 6 engine in nearly enough products.

I test rode a Piaggio MP3 scooter that was fun,plus all the stares from everyone wondering what the hell that thing was. Two wheels on the front but it leans so it feels like a bike until you realize how hard you can slam on the front brakes with gravel, rain whatever.

'Bout time someone started this thread... No more from Retro...
I don't blame him, it does get confusing there at times. Now there's no excuse..

My Appalachia Tag game. I'm hoping for lots of chatter and sometimes obscure clues.
I'm excited about your tag game Degeeze.Can't wait to start playing when it gets a little closer.

Haha! Everyone has different ideas of how their tag game should be. Some have a more hands off approach and everything goes, others have to keep on reminding people about their ideal of a tag game thread. Retro seems to like art, maybe he's trying to create some sort of masterpiece of a thread with only posts of tags and just the right difficulty of clues.

So take your damn shoes off on the white carpet and...
Bring the chatter over here!

Thanks. Luckily there's room in this world for everyone to play the game the way they want. E TN's tag is at a place I don't care to pursue and it's gone completely stagnant so I played with the NC tag some. Chased the dang thing to Fayetteville! Fun group those guys.

TN tag was still stagnant so I started the Appalachia tag. I figure folks running North and South could have some fun dragging that up and down to favorite spots. In _my_opinion_ part of the game is the social interaction and chatter.

I was surprised though when I moved the tag to ..um.. where it is now that it was so difficult to search out. I thought leaving the full signs in would make it a snap. Oops, guess I overlooked homeland security.

For a while I toyed with stealing the VA tag and moving it to Independence, VA for the 4th but got lazy and didn't.

Just wondering.

I was offered a pastorate out there in 2000. After careful consideration, we declined and took a staff position at a big church in Danville.

With 3 year old, we didn't want to be that far away from the Grandparents. We wanted them to see the little bugger frequently.

If it was offered today, I'd have a hard time saying "no".

I bet.... It is a great area.... Although I came from BlueGrass Va.(Also a great area)..

But this area I can pick food up at a nice grocery store 10 miles away in stead of 70 miles... Believe me it gets old after 20 yrs..

My Mom & her husband pastored the Methodist Church (actually he pastored, and she tried to not get in too much trouble) in Bluegrass & surrounding area in the mid-late 90's. The parsonage was right next to the church - beautiful natural rock structure. She worked part time at the general store in town. I forget the folks names that owned it now. He was a deputy...

I loved visiting, but only got out there a couple of times.

Our Farm had road frontage on 637 & 639 ... One of the Methodist Church's was across the farm... But it was white...

I know that Church ... That was by Beau Folks house..... A buddy of ours got Married there....Stu.................
Yes it was a beautiful church !!

I'm having a little trouble with the new tag.




I'm afraid of the lady calling my hand, I would certainly lose. I'm sure there is not a moth in her closet. If I could just find the tag, I'm sure I could see it all.
