Well damn.

Me and the son were not more than a couple miles from there on our trip to place the ABC TAG.

No days off for a while. This would be a good time to get 2 with one trip. Get the Eastern and ABC and then grab the NC when you drop the ABC in Iredell county.

Bruced!

ARRRRGH! : It's all good! Just rolling thru town from Richmond back to Charleston and decided to stop. Bad cell phone service caused us to have to go into town and post from the McDonalds about 45mins later. Frustration with the pic posting process caused us to screw with the posting process SOOO long that between the time we checked the post and eventually posted the pic, we got Bruced. We were Just about to leave the hotel in Raleigh this morning to find a place to tag when i checked the post. I'm just glad I didn't ride an hour outta my way just to find a cool place to take a pic, only to find out that I had been bruced when I went to post it! Had a great time anyway! Y'all come down to Columbia in October for our SC State Campout.

Gotta say, I would have felt pretty bad if I would have jumped off the interstate and grabbed the tag, only to find out I had just beaten out 2 guys who had ridden 200 miles on dirt bikes to get it!

You are a good sport. Capt. Thanks. My butt is still sore. That was close. We were saved by technology. Smart phone with tappatalk. I was able to post the pic right there at the river. You actually were at the tag before us. Have we met on the ICW? I have fished most of the NC waters in an old 20 ft Grady White until fuel got so high I switched to motorcycles.

Redemption grab

Had a fun but wet ride to Washington. Cool town, have never been here by land. Couldn't resist the ride to New Holland for another grab. That's some crazy history surrounding that lake. That was a really great tag. Now I just need to convince the wife to extend the trip by a day and head towards the mountains. We have had a great time so far! Even as we hang out in Blackbeards bar awaiting the rain to subside.

New tag

Sorry we couldn't be more creative, but we've taken a pretty good beating from the weather the last two days.

Me thinks this tag will sit for a while. Time to recruit some coastal taggers.

Well, if it's still there in October, I'll grab it when I'm in town!

I'll be at a nearby beach soon. I may be 4wheeling instead of 2wheeling though. Maybe I can rent a scooter and grab the tag. Can I tag it with my mtn bike?

T6D is closest to the tag (I think) let's all pitch in a few bucks for a tire and gas money.

Yeah it's about 90 miles from me running the back roads, but I don't like the coast. If it is still there after I get the tire mounted up Carter and I might make another beach rescue run.

Tire will be ordered this weekend. (Nothing local in my size but knobbies. ) So it will be at least a week before I will get the tire on the bike. (5-7 days shipping)

Going to try the Shinko brand this time.

Good Luck with the Shinko. FishHunt has had very good luck with them. I tried them for the first time recently, for me it took a lot of fine tuning air pressure before I could get them to handle and feel stable. Now that I have the air pressure, shock and forks dialed in I might try them again, just because it was a nightmare dialing the bike in to the tires. I run the 009 ravens, I got around 5k out of first rear and I am on the second with 3k on it, the rear tire is holding up much better now. I have around 8k on front, center is like new but the sides are feathered and about to the wear indicators. Like I said now the bike and air is dialed in I probally will try them again. For $160 for both tires it is hard to not use them.
Good Luck with them.
