A chance to play a moto/photo game? Meet/meat others? Competition? It is what it is... Apparently folks on the east coast do it better than west-coasters...
Your signature contains too many lines and must be shortened. You may only have up to 5 line(s). Long text may have been implicitly wrapped, causing it to be counted as multiple lines.

It's a virtual game, that gives folks a reason to go out and ride their motos. Some TOR games you must match your bike to the exact location of the previous poster/bike, these tend to regionally based (by state or some other geographic radius). Some TOR games (Such as North American TOR) require you to grab a mascot such as a key chain left by the previous rider. Some TOR games you must the next letter in the name, or the next number in a sequence or the next theme. These sort of games can be played by worldwide players.

If you are playing the regional TOR game, you must not only ride to claim the previous tag, but also ride to 'drop" the tag at the new location.

Some games move fast, some move only once-a-month.

Basic rules for most regional TOR games are:
#1 - Find the tag and reproduce the photo (as best as possible). The first person to post a found tag gets to place the next tag. If you get a tag, but somebody else posts their picture first, you lose.

#2 - Take the tag to a new location, get the photo and post it here. Give a few hints so the next person can figure out where the tag is located. Try to place the tags in interesting locations, maybe a bit of history that can be found down some nice twisties. Explore all of Maryland, and post your results here! Repeats are discouraged, but not unacceptable.

#2.a - New tag is to be placed within 48 hours of the grab.

#3 - Tag must be a) findable and b) not placed on a dirt road. Maintained gravel is OK, but make sure to let folks know that gravel is required to get to your tag. We don't want to exclude those who don't like to get dirty.

#4 - File photos are NOT permitted. You gotta ride to play this game.

#5 - No whining. If you have a valid suggestion to improve the game, we can listen to that. If you just wanna bitch and moan because you got Bruce'd, do it elsewhere.
They can be quite accdictive, especially if you play a fast paced game or a ride a long distance to claim it.

Thanks, Dorito. It sounds a lot like geocaching.
