I only support making it a geocaching game if each person leaves an increasingly valuable piece of motorcycle gear at each location. Maybe me we can work up to a whole motorcycle! I'll start the next round with a couple of KLR bolts for Okey Dokey.

Does this mean we have to take two motorcycles to claim the tag or can we just photoshop one in from the couch.

Photoshop is an acceptable solution.

Shortly after this picture was taken I discovered the limits of the X-Grip iPhone motorcycle mount. Right around 100mph my iPhone went flying out of it's perch on my handle bars and went bouncing down the tarmac. Luckily the phone survived the experience without a scratch. Lifeproof case FTW. I didn't even realize it was gone until my music cut off when I went out of range of the bluetooth. Of course this was on a closed course because I would NEVER do anything illegal. I told Backwoods we were just gonna draw the line at 95mph from now on.

That's odd... I've had mine up to 106mph (finally got out on a "closed course" ;) and tested my top speed) with no issues, but mine is mounted low and in the center (will insert a photo later) I like it better there and it is less likely to get hit, and less effected by wind :

Life proof should let you star in a commercial.... Kinda like the gorillas in the old Samsonite commercials.

Well Carabnsol, it appears you, me, & BABS are the only ones still playing local tag. I was with BABS when he posted the latest tag, so I guess it's up to you to keep this going!

I've moved off to the far away land of Hattiesburg, so probably won't play the local Jackson game too much anymore. Not that I was a prodigious player anyways

It's in the tri-county area! To be honest I'm surprised Aaron hasn't grabbed it yet since it's in his favorite county.

Gee whiz. I know exactly where it is now with that clue. Any landmarks that would help folks that don't get to Madison Co. that often?
