Tag #2 of of the 2nd take of ToR.

I was on my way to see my bud, Morris, and stopped to pay some respect to those who've served to protect this fine country, and many others around the world. This one is in Wake County. That's enough clues for today. *yes, there is a Google street view.

I spent almost an hour the other day, following some signs to find it and never could get there. Gotta go out tonight but if it's still there in the AM, I'm gonna be all over it.

Great Tag!
There's really only the ONE sign. Once you make that turn, you can't miss it....well, you could. I've gone past there before and not known there was actually a war memorial in that church cemetery. You'll know you're on the right path, as you pass the old empty fire station on the left.

How long do I have to wait before I go get the tag and move it?

Were the clues inadequate?

You'll pass a back entrance the the highest priced subdivision/golf community in the Triangle. There's also nearby, an old fire station named after the road this tag in on. The new fire house with this name has moved. The nearest "highway" is a two digit number that when added, total 17. There's a sign at the intersection with this "highway" directing you towards this tag. (veterans memorial) There is a veterans memorial in the town of Wake Forest....that IS NOT the tag. Unless you sneak in from the north, you'll have to cross Falls Lake to get to it.

Still trying to decide if riding is a good idea, know where it is though.


It's only 10 miles. Hopefully my stomach's better.

Found it. Good clues. Can't go get it, though. Good luck!

NOT the tag

BHW 17y old doesn't matter. Bet it is still a riot to ride. Part of my best memories as a kid are my XL (400cc smaller though). I'll swap for a ride on a Katoom sometime...

Enough riders know where it is, especially with the additional clues... I've got family obligations today, but if it is standing tomorrow, I'll snatch it 'cause great minds must think alike (guess I won't be using this FILE PHOTO)

Sweet KTM. I've lusted after the Super Duke and a 530 EXC for a while.
