Michigan Tag-O-Rama

Welcome inmates to the tag game for the entire Great Lakes State. Tag games are not new. There are many like it, but this one is ours. Some common ground rules.


1) Tag boundary is the entire state of MI. Should be simple enough.
a. Any type of road or surface
b. No “fee” areas or private property
c. Must be legal for all MCs, avoid ORV only trials and the like

2) Tag placement: Anywhere & Anything
a. Provide reasonable clues, GPS coordinates, or other means for inmates to find it without searching for 2 days
b. Tell inmates if rugged or other off-road terrain is required to get to the tag.

3) Tag Photos
a. Your motorcycle must be in at least one of the pictures for the grab/tag
b. No file photos

4) Game Play
a. If you are new, watch and learn before jumping in, it’s not that complicated
b. Give clues on the forum only to keep it fair
c. Due what you can to avoid previous tags
d. Move tag a reasonable distance, not just across the street
e. First photos uploaded get credit for the tag
f. Post your grab and tag together. Don’t post a grab and wait 2 weeks to post a tag.


If you happen to live in central MI, than check out this thread as well:

If someone wishes to keep an up-to-date map for this that would be awesome, but I am not looking to manage another. The first tag is mine. Good luck!

First Tag

Mikesova and I found this spot together. Some gravel, sand, grass, and some mud if wet is required to get there. A giant mud pit prevented us from getting any further down the trail.



between Hougton and Higgins lakes.

GPS:
44.398042,-84.732529

Hopefully we can get some of our off-roaders involved early.

Nice. Wish I had time to get up there to snag this one. I'm itching to take the new GS into the woods. No time though and leaving on a trip in less than a week.

Very straight forward: take thyself on a bike trip to the place the last person posted a picture with his/her bike, take a picture of your bike in the same place, post that. Then go somewhere else, take a picture of your bike at that new place and post the new pic for the next person to grab along with some clue as to where it's at. Try to do the grab and tag pics in a reasonable time of eachother.

Here is the Grab. It was tough for me to get to this spot. The Pirelli scorpions hated the soft sand and really hated the mud!!




Here is the tag. Not quite as ambitious as the previous but some really good riding around this area. N44*36.900 W084*59.500

I was thinking about venturing up to get it since I was camping just south west of Cadillac, so closer than I usually am to it, but the timing didn't end up working out.
