Glad the Brain is off the mountain. There are some great views from up there.
New tag........hints please.
I'm thinking Madison county.

Outstanding! I was at a loss about how to do that so I went with the URL for the album.

I really appreciate it.

"I didn't move the brain very far, as the crow flies. It can be found under a rock next to a larger rock to the right of the gate at the end of a road still up on the mountain. If you place the letters "per..." in front of the name of road and the gap through which it used to pass you have the name of a fruit found in these parts. Though it is believed that this fruit is not ripened until after a frost it is not actually true."

It's off of Flat Top but not out of the mountains yet.

My Bad! Funny how all those fire roads look so similar.
That must be one those fire roads heading towards SLD.

I know where it is - I was just at that gate on my WRR Wed. , then I went up on Flattop to look at a lot for sale (good excuse to go up). Remembered that the tag was still there about the time I got near the top, my camera safely at home of course. Duh.
Glad to see another WRR around.

I'm glad some one does.
I can't find a "per" simmons up there. I did find a short little lane off of 810 near Amicus rd, but it dead ends at a house. (per Google Maps)

Hello everyone,

I've been lurking around as well and figured I'd give this a try today. Headed up to Flat Top but was too late. Ran into a fellow rider FatNBald on the mountain, he was too late as well. Stopped for pics at the observatory and talked to guy that owned it/ built it. Nice guy... On the way down ran into another nice guy who said a guy riding another Beemer was up there a couple hours earlier.



When I got home I checked the thread again and saw the new location. I knew where it was so I just went and picked it up. I planned on hiding it on my way back into town but unfortunately my camera went dead. If the weather is too bad tomorrow I may have to wait till Monday morning to re-hide and take pictures. Hopefully nobody minds.



See you guy around, I know where I'm going to hide it. It won't be near the same area, it will be on a trail closer to town. I'll post the new pics as soon as I take them.

32 posts in 10 years? Yes I'd call that lurking.

Nice tag and nice bike.

I went to go see that lot as well. What did you think?

Figures that tag sits for 2 weeks and then everyone goes for it on the same day. Glad you all had fun riding up there and welcome new local tag players who came out of lurkerdom.

Lays well, I walked a good bit of it. Not as many rock outcroppings as many of those lots but the view is hampered by the trees and cutting them would open up the view of the house next door. All in all, not a great lot considering that it's in the best part of the highest, level area.
It was still great riding up there (and 180 miles otherwise) the other day, especially since my freshly installed IMS tank didn't leak!
