Tagging soon!

I rode to work today. ~38-40 deg. F. Not bad. Hope to be tagging again soon. No time today as work always gets in the way of having fun.

Me too. Sure feels good! If there was more dirt around me, I could have made it a tag.

Dirty ride

The BMW Touring Club of Detroit has a few dirt bike rides during riding season, 4TooMany you tagged along on one last year. These are not planned rides they just happen, some one will post something on our forum on a Thursday or Friday with a GPS file. These rides are anywhere from 50 to 100 miles in length. Good fun/

I remember. Your initialism threw me off. I didn't know what TCD meant. Maybe you have to be a club member to get the lingo.

CREATURES OF LEISURE!
I'm throwing down the gauntlet. Set down your warm drinks, good books and move away from your warm fires.

Put on your long undies and go get cold on your motorcycles!
After it started snowing and freezing again today, the lesser traveled roads were quite treacherous! The crunched up freezing slush on the surface of the dirt in low spots was eye-widening to say then least. I almost wiped out numerous times.

So for your safety and convenience I've posted a nice easy dirt tag, just off pave, in a CENTRAL location

Presenting....BIRD HOUSE CITY

Pavement Ends



Yer right about the treacherous part. I've been riding to work on occasion this winter, and I take the back roads home. The only way I can tell if I'm on mud vs. mud-covered ice pack is the almost uncontrollable wheel spin experienced on the ice pack.




This tag is pretty easy to get to: not far off the pavement at all! See picture. You have found it when you head south out of the east side of Ann Arbor on a road that crosses over I-94 but has no access ramps. Happy hunting.

Indoor motorcycle storage and work area with a hardwood floor! Awesome. The little TW looks like it is ready to go - I love mine and can't wait to get it on the trails.

Thank goodness for tw's!! One saved my finicky vintage husky by carrying 12 pounds of tools and parts!
The fancy gear gets the summit, but only because of the Sherpas and pack mules carrying the infrastructure to base camp.
Tw is the Sherpa of the trails!! Big ups to DA tee double u's mon.

6-Day Delayed Tag

I got out last Sunday to knock off the tag:


I then cruised around a bit and found this Jewell of a cemetery:


I later checked and found that DesertScorpion posted at the same site, but it never got tagged after that.

I debated all week as to whether I could bear the shame of another recycled tag. No one else posted and I didn't want that beautiful riding day to go to waste.

So - one of you can head out soon to pay your respects to Barney.
