Just in case no one noticed Justin added the clue. Also to make it interesting, to tag this one you need 2 bikes & they have to be from different households. Kind of a "tag team" event.

Good luck!

Yall post up if you need more hints...not trying to make it hard...just interesting. A different angle pic may help too.

And try to have two bikes from different families to promote comradrarie, but dont let it stop you from tagging....you just get double points...4x if you all have a ADV sticker.

(i guess some one needs to go through and set up the points)

Kind of like our tag..... a Kawi and a Suzuki. Different households.

We're on board!

We could make a V-Strom only photo tag game.

No rules, just trying to make it a little interesting. And bikes from different manufacturers don't count as different households. That is more like "kissing cousins"!

If you are from the south you know what I mean.

Directed to Jamey_Z as the original poster and moderator of this thread but for everyone's input.

Not making a rule...but thought about suggesting a 1 point value for each Tag found to add a little competition to and motivation to tag and maybe Jamie could keep a running tally on the first page of those that participate?

OR maybe everyone is having fun as is and just ignore this?

Need anymore hints on last Tag?

I've never really been a fan of points, despite my tongue-in-cheek joke about an your ADV sticker in the OP. I did look at a number of other photo tag games around the country before I posted this one to see how it worked, or what didn't.

Of course I'm open to input too, but so far it seems that the tags in this game have already been fairly competitive, at least within a small group of folks. What I'd like is to get more people and people from farther away more involved. I could be wrong, but it seems like keeping a tally could discourage new and casual participants because after a while they wouldn't have a chance to catch up.

Points may also have the detrimental affect of encouraging quantity over quality. I've seen that happen in geocaching as people rush to get their find count higher and higher. A disproportionate number of new geocaches are places in really dumb places just so people can find them fast and easy and get another point on their find total.

Posting a collage as I've done is intended to encourage people to want to see their own photos and photos of interesting places. Even a new guy will get his photo in the collage--though I can already see that very soon the pictures will become too small to be recognizable. I'll have to come up with a solution for that.

I've also thought of making a map; sort of a tracklog of the places the tag has been. That might require too much bookkeeping though.

If someone wants to make a case for keeping a point tally, I'll listen, and there's nothing that says someone can't post the numbers themselves.
