I will follow this in typical Armchair fashion.

I like the idea and it adds a new twist to the normal game. I will not be participating in this one, unfortunatly.

Have fun guys abd be safe.

Well trying to get things caught up here.

It might take me a few days to place an Alexander Tag. I have the wheels off the XRL, putting knobbies back on and getting it ready for the ride to Joe's this weekend for the 2nd Anniversary get together up there.

I dropped off the front wheel of MADnNC Vulcan to get replaced and I want to pull the rear wheel off the Vulcan. Not sure if it was just the awful condition of I-40 last night or if I have a bearing going south.

I won't break rule #6 though!!

Definately the condition of I40 Okie. I was puckering a little where it was stripped. If you want to go get a tag and your bikes are down, come see me.

NC-ABC Tag #2

Tag shot:



Closer view of Monument:



Excuse the large size but I liked what it said:



The monument is located in the hometown of an individual that has several nicknames, Mr. September, Handsome H****, also shares a nickname with one of Burt Reynolds characters.

The biggest thing I learned looking for a tag in Alexander county is there isn't much in Alexander county! I dam sure didn't want to use the obvious gem mine either!

Good Hunting!!

64 was pretty enjoyable between I40 and Taylorsville.

I'll have a new tag up by mid-day Saturday. I'm going to take some time to explore the wonders of Allegheny County.

Nice grab. It looks like the tag was at the courthouse in Taylorsville. Am I right?

FishHunt: on the corner of W. Main Ave and N. Center St.

NC-Okie: did you figure out the purpose of the blue funeral tent? Was someone being buried there?

Blur: Thank you for making that map. I'd never be able to visualize the the order in my mind.

Yep real close to the Courthouse at Taylorsville.

I figured the awning was for an upcoming speech or dedication of some sort.

This is definitely a new wrinkle for a Tag game.

Something about riding a hindered miles just to find a tag to place instead of chasing a tag is cool.

I like that, too. I'm bringing a friend along tomorrow morning and we're planning to just ride through the county until we find something neat.

You came within spitting distance of my plant. It just off Taylorsville Highway, near the intersection with 64. less than a mile off 40.
