Sorry, GutterTrash, but that's an old one. Number 25, I believe, that Sallydog placed, and I got:



It's a little hard to find on PC's list, because it's under Barnegat Light, and called "Massacre at Long Beach"...

I could be wrong, but from my research, there are no more lighthouses to tag left in NJ. There's supposed to be one in Sea Isle that was moved and is now part of a private residence, but I can't find it. Any others left untagged are untaggable far as I can figure.

It has been a long day.

I was already bruced before I left home.



But we had a nice ride anyway.
And it was a nice Tag.





I thought I would be getting the last of the Muffler Men on our Bruce Run in two weeks.
Then I remember the one at Barnacle Bills in Ortley Beach.
So we head over there.



But he is MIA.

Then I thought, perhaps they are storing him inside for the winter.
So I rode down the building and saw his feet through the window of the garage door !

I get off the bike to take some pictures and the alarm in the building goes off.
So I decide I had better not take any pictures of the inside of this building because there will probably be police showing up soon !

As we go to leave my bike won't start ! ! !

OH MAN !
Now what ?

Appears that my battery decided to die right there.

So I try popping the clutch.
Yeah, on a 650 pound machine !
No luck there.

I ask some people around about jumping a motorcycle and no one has cables anyway.

As I tried popping the clutch again I see a man peeking out of the tent next to the garage at Barnacle Bill's.
He comes out and asks what the problem is.
Turns out I am talking to Mr. Barnacle Bill himself.

Really nice guy !

He had seen me looking around so I told him I came here to see the Muffler Man.
Or as he puts it, the largest golfer in the world. (At the miniature golf course holding a club in the summer time.)
He tells me he is in the garage and asked if I wanted to see him ! ! !

ARE YOU KIDDING ME ?

Like I said, he is a really nice guy.

So he opens up the garage door and there he is.



Size 13 shoes and all !

So here I am.
Up close and personal with the head of a Muffler Man.
Boy and I proud !



OK, I don't get out much !

I take one last picture.



Then Barnacle Bill offers to push my bike so I can try popping the clutch again ! ! !
I really have no other options at this point so I said sure.
We roll along, I pop the clutch, in second gear this time, and off she goes.
Started right up.
Like I said, he is a really nice guy !

Did I mention he was a really nice guy ?

So off we go straight for home.
Actually we went to the bike shop I use and got a new battery.

This thing has lasted me 3 years and 9 months.
The previous owner put it in before selling it.



Can't complain there.

So after all of this I had pushed the limits of my gas tank.
I figured I could get home OK with what I had.
It was actually further than I thought.
But I kept trying to figure out how far I could really go.
When we finally got to the gas station after getting the batter installed I still had .4 gallons of gas left !
For me that is cutting it close without have a fuel reserve.

Not to mention that all the time this is going on I am thinking.
"I still need to put my new shocks on!"



Kind of looks like one of them fancy sport bikes huh ?



Now that is done too.
Plus a new fuel filter.
Which they hid pretty good on me.
But I found it.

Then to try out the new shocks by getting the new Tag, which wasn't that far.

Rides smoooooooooth now !

It better ! $ ! $ ! $

So now for a new Tag.
Not a very good one.
But I got it up before the rain, and I have no time tomorrow to do it during the day.

NEW TAG

I figured with all of this work I am doing on my bike I might as well put a big antenna on it.





The bike is still there.
The headlight overpowers the tower lights.



Sorry, no tripod !



You should be able to find it with the information on the sign.

So I will let you Chew on it for a while.

There is another tower down the road with red lights on it.
But I could not get a clear shot of that one or that would have been the Tag.
If you had a bow, you could shoot an Arrowhead to it from here.

Sometimes I'm so slow, I have spent a few hours on and off looking for this on the net.
Great info PC.
Now to try to get out and get it.

Just to help in finding this place.





Taken from a park nearby which shows both towers.
The one on the right is the tag.

I was going to wait till "610" when I got home but any "port" with wi-fi along the way will do.
