Raining up here right now. We won the lotto, and are in the 20% chance for the day I guess.


Remember when the tag would move 3 or 4 times a day? Ah, the old days....before I quit playing! People bitched and moaned that the tag was "too far" from the Triangle. etc. Someone started a "tags within 3 miles of my house" game and stepped on someone else's toes, etc. Those were the days!


I've been away from the Triangle tag for almost 2 years now, with only a few occasional check ins, or grabs. See a lot of new bikes, new names, etc, and a few old ones. Glad to be back.


* I really need to start uploading my pics from the road. That was one reason why I didn't enjoy the game as much years ago, prior to my owning a "smartphone". But even now, I still can't upload a pic, and then grab the URL to post it on this site. I have two photo hosting accounts, and can't grab the "share" html from either one. Surely there's a simpler way......?

It's been busy recently as well... Just a current lull, I think.

As far as posting from the road, I just upload the pic via my PhotoBucket app, copy the URL and paste it into the post here. Took a minute to figure out, but it works pretty flawlessly. I'll be happy to show you in person if we cross paths.

Tested, Photobucket now working:

Alright, seems to be working now. Based on other questions and comments on Flickr help forum, I'm not the only person to be unable to grab an html while on a portable device.

shoot, I was on vacation, then work like crazy for weeks, then a nice few weekends at the beach, then sick the last 10 days or so (that and fall chores... yardwork crap this time of year, and all the vehicle inspections come due dammit).

Rugby - I almost tagged that same place, but couldn't get a good enough pick of the front! haha!

game will start moving again soon... still probably moving faster than others... every time on the way back into town I check it to see if I can snag it on the way home.

I have only used Photobucket. I have Flikr but don't know how to use it, nor have I tried. Of course I would have to ride to play :(


You got this via Crapatalk

photobucket has been problem free, except for the occasional really really slow upload, which not only takes a long time, but eats up the battery. Photobucket is the way to go.

I'm going to take responsibility for this rain. Never fails, new toy in the garage, that I'm itching to ride, ans we get more rain than we've had in months! Last time we had days and days of rain, I had just bought a new mountain bike!

Yep. New bike here. Got a few days of riding in and then four straight days of rain... It's been parked more than it's been ridden

I take it back then, it's your fault!


I got caught out in a mystery shower on Sunday. I think that's the dirtiest my bike has ever been in it's 10 years!

those concours are painted with watercolor based paints, so they will run and bleed colors in the rain don't you know....

I figured it would rain for 3 days... lucky it's more - which is why I did all the yard seeding on saturday. Weekend should clear up.

Nah, the rain hurts more at triple digit speeds than you guys with just three cylinders are ever likely to encounter...

Normally, we can just outrun the rain. Again, something you three cylinder folks may not be familiar with...

I had always heard that those Connies kept the rider in a cocoon and you never felt the wind or the rain....
