New Tag. Nothing special, just a nice, out of the way, road.

New tag

Fully geared for a ride to MO, and wallowing like a pig riding N to S

Do me a favor you FF's...move it at least once so I can grab it and move it on my ride home from MO the week after Thanksgiving

Wow, what a ride. A few of us agreed to meet in Fall River to head out and grab the tag together. Well, as we sat in the D'nD, we saw that the tag was moved. So with after a bit of war-room type discussion, we headed to New London Tpke. We entered from 102 and ride South to the tag. Good thing too, if we went the other way, it would have been too easy. The V Strom struggled through the rocks but we stuck together and got to the tag.

As we entered NL Tpke...



Tag grab shot:





Now, from there we continued South through some great small towns and winding back roads to the eventual placement of the new tag.

Have a nice ride. Notice the elevation, not a mistake.



Oh , and I almost forgot, the tag shot.

We had considered a boat ride, but there is a perfectly good bridge for you to ride across.

Obviously the same puddle as the tag shot, but why such a large discrepancy in GPS co-ords?

Two different formats. One is decimal degrees, the other is in degrees minutes and seconds. You can enter either into the Google Maps search bar if you kow how to format it.

Ah, thanks. I didn't look close enough at the displays.

I even know about that stuff, but at my age, sometimes the brain ain't as quick as it should be.

Actually, they are quite different, 41 35.251, -71 39.794 is 1.9 miles away from 41.563165, -71.642742. The former is off I-95, the latter is on New London Turnpike (the actual tag location).

The incorrect one shows the location of the cursor on the screen, not the location of the etrex GPS.

It hardly matters, as the motorcycles were in the right place.

More importantly, the location of the current tag shot is correct.
