I had researched several wineries to place the tag at, a while back, but I couldn't find one that wasn't really close to another tag, or didn't have a cheese store nearby...

Great work Freaking RT! The tag map has helped me learn to look before I place tags, to avoid a repeat of the 'Hurley' incident. You definitely have a passion for both the ride and the experience!

Everyone ride safe and have fun. I'm trying to prep the KLR for a trip of a few thousand miles...

Of course I started talking to him about this. He said the law allowed you to home brew a certain amount of White Lightning for personal use. He had that much with him at the time. It wasn't illegal but if they caught him and were able to document how much he had he'd have to wait to next year to brew and sell more.

After a while he announced that it was clear now and pulled a bottle out. He sipped some, I sipped some, and we had a great ride. His stuff was SMOOOTH and I don't mean like Red Skelton. He was going to McLean with it. I lived in Vienna then.

See at least you got some kind of record in VA tag.

Just go tag something right across the street from an existing tag. You won't even need to get on your bike.

BTW thanks Freak, these stats are fun to see now that you laid it all out for us.

Great job on the stats, Freak. I'll have to work on getting my miles up!

Now, somebody go get that tag. I can't stand seeing a good tag lie around. Don't make me go get it!

Dangit. My GPS died (Zumo 550) and I'm absolutely hopeless without it. Otherwise I'd be all over them both.
