4th and Alpine, in the article I found. I had to pickup a helmet from an inmate in Arvada otherwise I wasn't going to boulder. And I did not leave the tag in boulder. It's in the ring of fire.
Nice motor cop on 93 gave me a wave when I went speeding by the dump.
Thanks Buddy :-)
And glad the 400 only wants to go 90....downhill with a tailwind


The New Tag bump to a new page

How?
Don't worry, by tomorrow Google searches will probably include the advrider.com link to our posts. It's happened a couple of times now.

The smart-ass answer is that it's not a random house. If you search Google Images for "Monsters, Inc house colorado" the very first image will lead you to boulder. Revising your search for "monsters, Inc" +"Boulder, colorado" won't get you there through an image search, but a web search on google will lead you to this site, which gives you the cross-streets: http://pulse.8z.com/monsters-in-your-hood/

I found the address for the current tag with the Bogart/Marilyn/Elvis mural the same way, over the course of a handful of google image searches, which quickly gave me, first, the town (Golden) and then a revised search for murals in Golden led me to the address in Golden. Go get it, boss, I'm in Wyoming today. Way to far away!

I'd go get it but my bike won't be ready until this evening. Still, a night ride might be in order. Anything to get the tag out if the ring of fire.

I don't think so Tim, err I mean, Ted. I was fooled by that too and used Elvis in my search, but quickly found a link that gave me a street view and who was in the mural.

Pretty sure that's Marlon Brando not Elvis. I could be wrong though.

My success with that has been about 50-50 at best.
It says 4th and Alpine in the article. :)

Doh! At least my mistaken search for Elvis (along with Bogart and Monroe) turned up the address anyway. Google can be forgiving sometimes!

This is a motorcycle game. Hope you got a pic with the wild one.
Might have to fail you.
Brando not Elvis

I figured parking might be a problem.
It was new to me. I was on the way to 2 other places down the street to tag.
Saw the mural, thought 2 movie tags in a row, nice and a classic motorcycle movie, sweet.
