Be careful riding out there this morning. It was foggier on my return trip home. So foggy that I was looking at my Google maps for the next road curve (since I couldn't barely see).

By the way the new Google Maps app on the iPhone doesn't like the shaking from my little twin. You shake the phone to provide feedback, well the V-Strom is always shaking.

Much like Ronald Reagan. I just don't recall the details of this file tag. I am sure I wouldn't have done anything questionable and I know I had to get pretty close to read the sign without my glasses...which I am on the legal side of I might add. Don't recall any barrier, it must have grown there since....

New Tag!



I thought the flowers were appropriate. Thank you Mrs. Donkeys. I wasn't so sure about being anything with the word Moose in it, but I took a lesson from you and went with it. The grab was at 64 and 751. Here's a clue for the new tag.

I'll give more clues if google fails you.

Reading over your grab with my wife. Nice quick grab. It should be a fast moving game today.

This is great! A lady rider tag group in the making. We can add my daughter in this summer. She is back at WCU now.

Very foggy riding this morning. Next tag in a few.

Is that the V-strom 650? How do you like it? PinkMoose is tired of the WR and is torn between the WeeStrom and the Tiger 800.

BlueMoose, I really love the V-Strom 650. I have to reference that to my other bike is a '78 BMW R100. So technology and refinement have greatly improved. I have had it for 3 months and look for any excuse to ride it (commuting or tags). The weight seems lighter than the actual weight. Acceleration is fun and I have been getting 50-60 mpg. Check out Stromtrooper.com.

Check this out too, replies are spot-on.

Grabapalooza!



Sorry the driveways were blocked off so I couldn't get the tag angle.

First grab back from hip surgery. Feels great to ride again. Strom is gone, had to find somethubg lower and lighter for my hip & back. I don't miss the Strom much, thia Ninja is FUUUUUUUUUN. Most fun bike I've had.

Let's keep the tag moving on this unbelievably hot January day...

New tag:



Should be easy enough to find in google if you keep a New Hope for this old Railway.
