Felt like I needed approval on this one.

You ever have one of those rides where everything was "on" and the bike feels super dialed in -> you, the bike, the conditions, the ride, it all fits together perfectly?
Not necessarily entire rides, but occasional moments.

Certainly sounds like you got your money's worth on that ride...

Since you've already got it dialed down to Butner, I'm guessing you know exactly which piece of hardware that is. If you're heading that way, you may want to look at where the VA tag is too. If you're in Butner, you're probably a third of the way there, at least. It's been sitting for a week.

Grab and hello!

A static display but military equipment nun the less. Plus bonus equipment in the background.

I've wanted to play in this tag for a while, dang it's fast paced!

Tag

Assuming the grab cuts the mustard, the new tag is a Veterans war memorial. This happens to be one of the most attractive small town memorials I've ever seen.

Veterans Memorial Grab

It's about 40 degrees right now. Decided to take the DR out for a spin today.

North Carolina WWII Memorial in Capital Square, Raleigh. Dedicated to all the veterans who gave their lives for our freedom. Thought about also getting a shot of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the other side of the lawn but couldn't get the bike in a good spot for the picture (too many church goers out today).

Welcome aboard!
Check the Global Wildcard game too. It moves pretty quickly most of the time as well.

Bike looks great!

Nice tag.

This will slow the game a little. Maybe.

Oh, yea of little faith!

If I can get the bike out tomorrow, I know at least one place that I could grab for this tag.
