I could help you with the trail, I think you could do most of it, it's not that difficult. If you got in to trouble I could always ride you out pillion style to safety on my Starbucks cruiser..... So, highways are kryptonite... Interesting...

Just as a point of clarification for those playing at home....
Is this an alternate photo or are you still insisting on the non-descript hill scene posted earlier?
I'm all for whatever it takes to get the tag moving again. New pic or nondescript, either/either.... I shall abide by the rule and law of he who is known as JT. I await the councils decision...

Hiways are Kryptonite for me as well by the way.
We all have a variety af prefered styles and areas. Those that are playing are either watching/ or too busy/ or picking their battles or any combination of the three. Those that are bound and determined but at a loss can request a clue. The clue will be given at the taggers leisure.
I check every day to see where we are at, make sure we are following the rules that were burned into stone tablets for me, and to answer questions such as this one. Tag on my fellow riders.

Same here, but my issues are psychological. Ive had two cars collide with me in the past (separately). So Im fine with quiet backroads for less than an hour but traffic scares the crap out of me.!!!!

Toowoomba, did Santa bring you a gazateer yet? If not, you may want to add a sense of sarcasm to the list :)

The wise and wonderful oracle JTWest has spoken. I for one am grateful for his watchful all knowing eye. I enjoy watching this game as much as I enjoy playing it and would therefore like to offer the new picture as the official tag, unless of course someone has already snagged the "nondescript" one. The CK rock, painted by a Simian Species, which actually stands for "Chafed Keister," or "Cars Kill," can now be the official tag.

My dear Verboten, offering to "give you a hand" was the epitome of "sarcasm..." Now play nice... The tags are fun regardless of the locale. DK's post of the Petroglyphs was an introduction to an area that I had not known existed, and I enjoy seeing new sights, regardless of the difficulty of the terrain... It's all about the journey... Now grab that tag, grab your gazateer and treat us to another adventure! Humbly, Toowoomba...

They need to make more highways out of dirt! Too much slab in this Country. I feel the same way about getting off road, so much so that I'm looking for a thumper. My take on it is a kind of evolution, the more experience you have, the more the dirt calls your name. Peaceful, beautiful and just as importantly, the likely hood of being collided by a car goes down significantly I'm thinking a 230 or 250cc would be the ticket.

Yeah, it gets confusing when more than one person in a conversation has a dry sense of humor.

I usually get thrown off when someone is serious in this thread
