Title: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: CLAY on September 15, 2008, 09:34:20 am
So there's interest.   :lol:  Here are the rules (these are the same rules in the Delaware area tagging with a few state specific modifications):

Standard rules apply:

    * YOUR BIKE MUST BE IN THE PHOTO. Attempt to reproduce the original tag photo is not acceptable.  Obviously.
    * NO FILE PHOTOS. You are not allowed to use existing photos from previous rides/trips either to get the current tag or to place a new tag
    * NO TRAILERS, TRUCKS, ETC. You must ride your bike to the tag (yes, it's been done before, hence the rule)
    * The first person to POST a photo of their bike at the tag location, gets to pick the next tag location. It's not who gets to the tag first, it's who POSTS THE PHOTO FIRST. Might be wise to learn how to post photos from your cell phone while on the road...
    * You may take a photo of a new tag on your way to (hopefully) getting the current tag (same day), but other than that exception, use of any photo taken prior to getting the current tag is forbidden
    * TRY TO PICK INTERESTING TAG LOCATIONS. Pick spots that are fun to get to, have some historical interest, weird/zany, whatever, but consider what clues will be needed to find it. If you make it too obscure, the game stalls. Better to keep the tag moving than having people searching for a tree in the forest
    * TAGS MUST BE IN THE STATE OF MICHIGAN.  Indiana and Ohio are close but not close enough.  At this point I see no reason for it not to be in the UP as well, but be aware that by moving the tag to the UP you may be significantly slowing the game down.
    * The new tag must be posted within 24 hours of grabbing the old one. After 24 hours the previous tag is up for grabs again
    *  RIDE!

Edited to add:  BIG thanks to Wooderson for putting together a Google spreadsheet of all the tags:

1. Get our current tag.  If you need help just ask someone will chime in.
2. Take it back to Michigan and post one from there.  
3. One of us will come over on the other side of the puddle to bring it back to this side.

It's that simple.

    I would *love* to have you invade our state.  I look longingly at your game of phototag.  DOn't get me wrong- I couldn't do it all the time, but I'd love to have an active game around here.  I checked out a couple of locations, and most of them are ~4 hours out- not a big deal, but that's pretty much a whole day.
   Get it down to NW/NE Indiana and I'd make that run for sure!

I'd Play.

I'm usually so busy at work I can't get enough time to do the tri-state thing although I would love to, I usually only have Sundays or after work during the week for a spin on the bike.

Just a thought, Clay.  Try posting a picture of a place you can reach that you know is close to some other ST-N folk.  Getting something that's close to others is a way to get the ball rolling.  Asking if you should start one is just wasting the time that could be spent starting one.  If it doesn't work, what's the worst that could happen?  No one tags it.  Well, in that case, post something else.  It's bound to catch.  Now get out there and find something cool.

Damn rectumfryer.  I keep thinking it'd be awesome to get involved in another region's game of phototag and take it back to another region.  That alone would almost be enough excuse to take a trip out to california.... but michigan will do nicely, I think....    :lol:

Don't worry, the CB1 won't be going anywhere for at least a few days.  He still has to get his hands on another rectumfryer, and then it MIGHT not be the culprit...   :D  So you've got until next weekend at least...

    I'm not gonna make it today.   :thumbsdown:  It's raining and windy as heck right now here- and it looks like it's getting that way in Lansing as well.  That for 2 1/2 hours round trip just doesn't sound all that good.  I'll shoot for tomorrow.  I've got a good one in mind too.  Curses.
   I'll let you know tomorrow, but it should work out fine for me- that will leave you with Saturday.  Bummer, cause tomorrow looks like a good riding day for you- but Saturday looks even better.  Sorry!  :o

This used to be the railroad capital of Michigan..It was also my home town when I was young. I know that means nothing as a clue, however you could not get through town without waiting for a train!!
The hint is the School is know as the "Railroaders"!!

( And thay had a band named after the town,town..that's a joke)

Post by: CLAY on October 03, 2008, 10:54:40 pm
So I bust out of school today ready to ride to Sparty.  I thought "I better quick check to see if someone tagged him"- sure enough.  So I did some googling based on the pictures I saw, and whamo, figured out it was in Durand (I had to go through about three train stations before I found it), dowloaded the map to my GPS and hit the road.

That last 40 miles back to GR got a bit chilly!  About 220 miles round trip...  :bigok:

I actually took the next tag pic on the way out- I figured it'd be too dark by the time I got back.

I actually hunt the areas all around the cemetery, so don't hit any nice bucks!

When you come out- if you have the time there is some geat riding to be had south and east of this location through the state land.

Post by: wibornz on October 13, 2008, 07:21:36 pm
Bam it is tagged.  This is a great location and had a great ride out to it.  Logged almost 250 miles today.  I also got to ride with the coolest father in-law it the world.  He bought a C90T on saturday and we have been burnning up the roads.  I just hope I can be half as cool as he is when I am his age. Hehehehehe.  

To bad the castle  is only opened Tuesday through Sunday.  O'well still very cool.  Even thou it has been tagged.  I would still go see it.

The bridge was very cool.  Nice view of the castle and the river.

(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/10-13-08_1607.jpg)


So for the next tag.

(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/10-13-08_1801.jpg)

Hint.....You payed for it so you might as well go inside.  There is a free yes free museum that only take about 20 minutes to see and it include a classic corvette, an old army jeep, old snowmobile and other cool stuff.  So get the tag and take a stroll through...You might as well because you already paid for it.

Thanks guys!  I didn't get in- I had to scoot back home for the wife and kids.  I definately will be back though during PMS season-maybe some time in Jan or Feb.  It's an easy shot from GR, and it looked really cool.

FBRR- just remember, you can only get every other one.  I can see it now.  FBRR tags one, waits a day, gets it and tags another...

Enjoy that retirement!   :bigok:

Ok so I leave work early about 0430 hours so that I can be up by 11:30. (you know the crack of noon) Want to get to the tag early enough to meet Clay because he said, "Rev your motor and honk and I will come out.  So I had to get there before school let out.

So it was about 94 miles of back roads to get to the tag.  Great ride.  I get to the school, rev the motor and a quick honk, pull up to the sign for the tag and sure enough out comes Clay.  And of course Clay rode to work today.  Yes, Clay I did see the Bandit sitting in the lot.  Nice looking bike, Clay.  So some of his student came out to be in the tag.  Very cool.  I hope this inspires them to not let grass grow under their feet and that they travel and see the world or at least the part they live in.

Well here is the tag of the sign to be official.

Then a shot with the kids.  A great bunch of kids I must say all seamed polite and respectful.  Nice to see those traits in the kids.

(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/10-21-08_1353.jpg)

So on to the next tag.  I am going to post two pics.  The first one with the wood statue is the tag, I am not giving any hints, so it could be hard to find.  It is a nice area to ride, but off the beating path.


(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/10-14-08_1822-1-1.jpg)

The second pic is a bonus pic.  It can be counted as the tag, but it will be a good ride to it to tag it with the weather getting colder.


(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/09-21-08_1001.jpg)

So enjoy and go get them.  I have at least two more pics that I want to post as a tag this year.

Eagerly a waiting the chance to tag again.

So is this a tag of a tag?

  Great to meet you!  I think we just sold a bunch of kids on riding  :inlove: and just drove a bunch of parents nuts tonight.  We had talked about the game- but I'm not sure they fully understood it until they saw it take place.  They asked all about the bikes, riding, where we go, all those things. It was great PR for the kids, that's for sure!

  Time to spend an evening with google and find that next tag!


Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: CLAY on October 22, 2008, 08:18:56 am
So I think I spent two hours on google last night.  No luck for me!  I'm hoping a local knows this one, cause I've hit the wall...

DOH!  You guys are killing me.  I hunted up and down to no avail.  I must be searching using the wrong terms.  I even tried sharpening the picture to see the business and post office name.  I'm glad someone's on it!  Nice work pollux  :thumbsup: - now go get it!  I have time Friday to play...

Hey if you want to go all the way across the state on Friday, I will surely attempt to clear my schedule and hook up in Durand.  :pokestick:

  Boy- tempting.  The only problem is that I'll be in South Bend, Indiana that morning and not able to leave till mid morning.  EeeGads!  I don't hink I'm gonna be able to make it.  I found the Saling School one- it's the statue that's killing me!

Pollux......You must have found the one by the lake, as the one with the statue is only about 50 miles for you each way.


Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!

Just because the weather is going to be terrible this weekend....Here is a hint so that you will not have to ride so far....Unless you want to.

This would be a good start for a google search.  You may be able to find the statue on one of the pages.

The invitation is open to everyone that wants to take a ride on Friday. I will be leaving for this tag around 10:00 am. (as long as the wife agrees  :eek:.....lol.

Let me know.

Pollux

If you search for the next tag and the weather holds out, I'll tag along!

Post by: CLAY on October 22, 2008, 10:52:52 pm
Nice work!  Time to look for the next.  I can't make the ride to the Lake Friday pollux- I was sorely tempted to skip out of my convention Friday and ride, but I really need to be there (it's in South Bend).  I'll be out by noon though, and looking for the next tag, wherever it may be by then.

BTW pops- great tag!  


Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: wibornz on October 23, 2008, 07:03:06 am
It looks like the major retailer of Pewamo has closed up and it is for sale. While it is not in Ionia, it is not far away. There are some covered Bridges in the area that would make a nice tag also, I mean if your going to the mall it would be a nice next tag.

And by the way I know where the pewamo mall is.  I used to drive by it going to work in Ionia. But I have put on about 600 miles this week...Meaning I have neglected some stuff that I need to get done. SO the pewamo mall is safe for now, I do not have enough time to tag it anytime this week or weekend. If it is not tagged by next Wednesday, I may be able to get to it.  



 And hey the lake shot is at Port Sanilac on Lake Huron.  Nice little town.  The wife and I rode around the thumb and stop at the marina because a friend of mine had his boat on a slip there.  In the pic at the marina if you did not notice, the wife is parked behind my bike on her 1200 Bandit S.

Post by: pops66 on October 23, 2008, 09:05:27 pm
This is FUN
I knew that this type of stuff was out there, but I didn't know how.

I look forward to checking out the progress. When you put footnotes in, it makes it all the better. I am becoming good friends with Google looking for the tags. I was lucky on the Indian statue because I knew where it is. But, there are a ton of possibilities out there and the year is growing short so we must get moving out there.

Being semi-retired has its advantages, I only have one boss to appease.

Well, got gloves, got coat, road is dry, lets ride!

That was a tough one! To try and find it, I could see that there was a Pro Hardware sign on the store behind the statue, so I made a  call there corporate office, asked for the district manger for Michigan and asked him if he knew of the statue? which he did not :headscratch: but he was kind enough to call someone in the organization that would know and gave me a call back with the statues location.

With out having personal knowledge of that statue I probable wasted a good hour at work hunting it down :lol: :lol: :lol:

  Funny two track- same deal here.  I figured out the Pro hardware sign too- I tsrated calling them and got lucky on the 3rd or 4th- the regional Pro Hdre sales guy was there, the manager put him on the phone, and he knew where it was.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day of the week!  Pollux- *great* tag- that was tough!
    I was gonna get Powamo today, but after bow-hunting this morning, it was time for storm windows. Sometimes ya gotta work on the honey-do list!
   BTW- I did 120 miles Thursday morning from GR- South Bend.  Started out at 34° and ended at 38°.  I was running late and couldn't stop, or I would have about 30 miles from SB.  I was getting chilly!  Thank goodness for the A/O cooled engine on the B12- it made a great handwarmer.  On the way home yesterday it was 45° and rain, but the raingear actually kept me plenty warm and dry, so it was no problem.  Nice run!

Four more days.....Then game on.
 It looks like it will be warming up next week.( my first week of retirement :inlove:)
I ride until it snows and they salt the roads.
Early next year ( it's late for this year ) we should do a MEET at a selected "tag" sight on a weekend so we could all meet. Group tag?


Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: CLAY on October 26, 2008, 10:35:46 pm
That would be awesome.  It would be sweet to meet everyone.  I'll get that tag this week if someone else doesn't get it first.  I have a good one in mind.
  I also ride till the ice and salt- love it!

Well set on to get the windmill on Sunday with Pops66.  We got to Middleville and it started to rain on us, but he we are motorcyclist, no a motorcycle rider.  So we pressed on in the rain.  So much for the hour I spent detailing the bike on Saturday for the group lunch at Joe's Gizzard City.

So me and Pops66 both know right were this is as we have had to take the wife's shopping in Holland before.  So through the rain and wind, not bad though  we did not get to wet.  

The tags are from aways away as the gate was closed.  Go figure it's Sunday.

Pops66
(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/11-02-08_1251.jpg)

Only thing is we got a little cold...Is there a decent coffee shop in Holland or Zealand...NO.  We pulled off in Hudsonville to get coffee and warm up a little.

Then it was off to me and Pops66 group tag.

We did pass the Hooker Cemetery so we had to stop and re-tag hehhe.

(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/11-02-08_1421.jpg)

So off for about an hour and a half ride to find an out of the way spot.

So here is the next tag.

 :bigok: Ya Buddy.  

We talked too long at Joe's Saturday to make the run to Holland. So we started early Sun under cloudy skies.  :headscratch: It was dry so OK. Got about half way there and it started to rain.  :( Time to check out my new riding coat for waterproofing. Good news it is dry.  :inlove: About a half hour and the sun came out. A beautiful day for a ride. We put on a little over 200 miles and actually found a couple of "new" tag possibilities. :wings:

Don't know if team tagging is kosher, but, riding with a friend is really great. :burnout:

By the way - 100 + miles to find a gate to the park. CLOSED  with locks. :mad2: Thought about riding down the joggers lane, but don't need the trouble that far from home. Oh well, ya gotta love it

Thats it - Wibornz posted the pictures, I am back in the cave waiting for the next posting.

See ya there  :gerg:

The second pic is a bonus pic.  It can be counted as the tag, but it will be a good ride to it to tag it with the weather getting colder.


(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/09-21-08_1001.jpg)

So enjoy and go get them.  I have at least two more pics that I want to post as a tag this year.







Matkal and myself had a great ride today and tagged the bonus pick. A bit on the chilly side but nice and sunny. Tried out the new gerbings pant liners. Worked great! Thanks for the great route out Matt. Had fun, have to do it again soon before it gets too cold.

   I think team tagging is awesome!  Very nice.  Yeah- the gate was closed when I was there too, but the volunteer workers were driving out through the jogging road, so I drove in there, down the road a hundred yards or so, and got the pic.  

    Since you passed Hooker Cemetary again, did you ride out and around Gun Lake and the Yankee Springs game area?  There's some *great* riding out there!

    Time to examine the pics and google- glad you guys had fun on it!

Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: Boov on November 03, 2008, 07:06:03 pm
MADE IT!  :)
Wow does it get dark fast after the time change.
The clue that gave it away was the sign in the bridge picture.  If you squint just right you can read "Earl's Dream".  A google search of that phase leads you to Historic Bowens Mills just north of Gun Lake.  The last couple of miles of the drive is really twisty through the woods, which made me feel a little leary because it was dusk, November, and I was driving through the woods on a bike alone.

When I got there, it looked rather closed up and the skeeters were out like crazy.  Alos, I wanted to get out of the woods before it got much darker, so I just got a couple of pictures.

This place's driveway is about as off-road as I want to get with a V65.  It's just about a two-track.

I'll post the next tag in a second.


Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: Boov on November 03, 2008, 07:09:37 pm
I should introduce myself.  I'm a friend of Clay, and he and I have done a lot of long-distance rides together.

Clay has been talking a lot about this photo tag, so I thought I would give it a try.  I busted it out of work today, but it got dark amazingly fast.  I wish I could get better pictures of this next tag, but my camera could only do so much in the low light.  If you need better pics I can stop there again sometime.

Is this an okay way of inserting pictures?  It appeared to be the easiest way.  Anyway, here's the next tag.

Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: CLAY on November 04, 2008, 05:24:03 pm
The big chicken is only about 3 miles from my house.  I figure I'd let it ride for awhile and see if someone else wants to come get it- if you are coming this way, shoot me a PM or email- if you hit it in the evening or on the weekend when I'm home lunch is on me!  :bigok:  It's in the parking lot of a great bar/restaruant.  I happened to pass it tonight on my circuitous way home (too nice to ride home in a stright line today!), and I saw a white-walled cruiser there- that wasn't you, was it pops?

Hey Clay,
Nope, it wasn't me this time.  :D To copy a phrase that I recently heard; "She who must be obeyed" had me working and without a gate pass, I was stuck. :headscratch:
Back to the tag at hand.
The only bar/restaurant that I know in GR, is on the corner of Division & 28th. We were there last week and I don't recall a BIG CHICKEN out front. besides there is a MCD in the pix. Too many MCDs to call and ask if there is a big chicken across the road. Oh well, back to the laptop.

Mabey next time. See you there -  :gerg:

Gotcha!!!!!
At least I think so, I will fire up Wibornz   :pokestick: and see if we can make it before Sat. It took about 4+ hours on the laptop and it finally sunk in. According to the web, the cuisine is BBQ.  :firedevil:  :beerchug: Will let you know when we are coming and we can hook up for lunch.
:bigok: See ya there  :gerg:


I'm not sure you're on it- they are known for Chicken (it's all they serve on Saturday night) and fish (all you can eat on Friday nights).  PM me your idea- I'll give you the thumbs up/thumbs down.  It'd be a bummer to make the trip and have th wrong spot!

Well, it sounds like someone might tag that chicken today.  If not, I may have to tomorrow morning before work.  Nothing like wiping the frozen snot off my face as I roll into work.

Jake's Grill and Bar:

And now here is the next spot:

Gotta tag Santa, although if you don't get there before he is done delivering his presents, then I guess you can use this:

DSC02247

PM me if you need help, although there are a couple readable road signs and building signs so it shouldn't be that hard.  The hard part will be tagging it before the snow flies!  Whoever tags it, let me know when you will be around and maybe we can get together.  Open invitation for Clay for a meal too!

Thanks to Clay for treating me to lunch, and talking bikes with me for a couple hours.  We talked about how cool it is that it seems like other Region 4 members in MI are making attempts to get together, and we are both looking forward to attending something next year.

Hey, did you buy your Duc @ Life Cycle? I think you have met TheRedOnes and myself before. SprintRSrider is the former Service Manager @ Life Cycle and I am the former RAT Pack Coordinator and the RedOnes was my VP, but none of us have been in or around that place since before Christmas 2007...

Well me and Popps66 made it to Kzoo and back.  We had a nice lunch and met fellow a fellow rider Megillet.  Megillet is a cool guy we kicked it over lunch while we waited to see if anyother motorcyclist were going to be out and about.  We had a nice ride to Kzoo from Lansing and on the way home we headed up 43 to Hastings, and then cut back across country to Lansing. Started to get a little cold near the end but hey made it back safe and sound.  We tagged Santa,

(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/11-23-08_1313.jpg)

so the tag is being moved.  By the way Megillet, nice tag.  It was a nice ride, nice tag, I should have made some time to walk through the little shopping area.

So on to the next tag.  A couple of weeks ago, me a Popps66 were out riding and we stumbled upon this:

After lunch back up 43 to Hastings, lots of twisties and curvies  :chili: then back roads home.  :shrug: A darn shame that night comes so early when we are having fun. :(

 :(  :sleepy:
I agree there is no reason to let it drop to the bottom. To tell the truth, I made a mistake last  Sunday. While our Ladies and Daughters were busy making the annual Christmas Cookies :inlove:, Wibornz and I went for a quickie! Only about 20 miles :(  with snow and ice abounding and only a few DRY spots per mile; we muddled through for about an hour before we returned for a cookie break. :rolleyes:
 
I have a pair of Vinos  :inlove: and when you are in  :( :(  "Winter Withdrawl"  :(, you take opportunities when they arise.
My mistake was not taking a picture. , If you have seen Ted in full gear, picture him on a Vino 125 scooting down the road, head rocking to the headset. 18 degrees, windier than heck, we had to watch the crosswinds because of the icy spots.

I would have posted it not as a tag, but as a memory.  :bigok:

Take m-37 north out of Hastings.  I almost tagged the loader last year while going to tag a windmill that Clay posted, but just drove by.

I had planned on tagging it on Monday. Weather should be sunny and 45 degrees, unfortunately, I have a meeting in Jackson at 2:00 pm so I will not be able to get out there.  I will be riding, but in the opposite direction.  That's to bad, because I already have some new places tagged and ready to post.

So I ran out of time and could not make it for lunch at Cement City.  So off to tagging I go.

(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/03-14-09_1439.jpg)


On the way back into Hasting, my riding partner for the day, had a pick up do a lane change into him pushing him into another lane.  My buddy was hard on the brakes, but still skidded, and slammed into a stopped car, breaking his leg and totaling his bike.  :(

So off to the hospital we go.  His bike is a mess. He skidded sideways and slammed the car in the back taking out the whole side of the bike.  Oil and antifreeze all over the road.

Just a reminder that even phototagging is dangerous.  I am sure that Geoff will be fine but his riding season my be over for a while.  He asked what his bike looked like and I told him like a new Rocket III. hehehe.

We had multi trips planned....The Dragon, Blueridge Parkway, and a couple Iron butt rides.  Owell theres next year or later in the summer.  

So we were on our way to tag a historical bridge, but we got well detoured, so out comes one of the tags that I have taken but not used yet.

(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/02-10-09_1550.jpg)

 :headscratch:
sorry about that.

The bird was at the Am Legion just west of Charlotte. We ran out of time cause KillerK had to run to class.   :( :(
It was a beautiful day and we hated to cut it short.  :crazy:

Tomorrow is another day and we will be running a out to tag.  :bigok: Work and class schedules really bugger up a week - ya know what I mean?  
Maybe we can convince Wibornz to tag along for the ride.

Whatever - lets ride
 :gerg:

Bummer- don't worry though KK- there will be a bunch more!
OK- here's the next one.  I burned out after school today and snagged it when I saw KK's post:

I have a few more if you need hints (and you might).
Here's one:  It "Felt" like a good ride today!

Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: CLAY on March 20, 2009, 08:34:53 pm
Lets say I "felt" a great "restoration" with the first tag of '09.  Of course, it's in Michigan- west coast, about a 1/4 mile from the lake.  There was a prison located right by this thing- at one point in it's history it was the local State Police post.  Now the prison is gone, and it's a Historic site. The original builder invented the comptometer, one of the first office machines.

Post by: wibornz on March 20, 2009, 10:45:12 pm
Well I know were this.  You guys better get to searching or I will have it by mid week.


Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: ServoJockey on March 22, 2009, 04:29:36 pm
I knew I had to get this. I spent a lot of time there in the late 70's when they converted the old monastary to a prison. I worked on the construction crew during the conversion.

Here is another picture of the same place;

This was in a tree behind the old stables.
(http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d33/pseudohnim/R1150GS/SDC10075.jpg)

And this would be the new place to tag;
(http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d33/pseudohnim/R1150GS/AdaBridgeCropped.jpg)

It is one of only a few covered bridges left in Michigan.

Nice Servojockey- and welcome to the game and ST.N!  You'll find it's a pretty good group.   :bigok:  I had the same picture (of the sign) in case someone needed a giveaway clue.  Are you a fellow westsider?

Now it's tome to search for covered bridges.

Hey Boov- HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!   :D

Edited to ad- I got the next one- but I'll be out of the game due to evening commitments for a bit.  Consider yerselfs lucky...   :lol:

Post by: megillet on March 22, 2009, 08:41:41 pm
Yeah, so I just used Google to help me figure out which one this is, but I don't think I can get there until Wednesday morning unless I either:
a) skip class tomorrow night,
b) skip studying Tuesday night (not a good option since I skipped class last week and have a test Wednesday), or
3) leave at the crack of dawn Wednesday and hustle to get back before class at 1pm, assuming it hasn't been tagged by then.

 Servojockey- and welcome to the game and ST.N!  You'll find it's a pretty good group....   Are you a fellow westsider?



I grew up in Left Michigan. I have been riding for almost as long as I can remember, I did take a bit of a break when strapping carseats to a two-wheeler became problematic.  :headscratch:

I did the re-entry about eight years ago and finally moved up to a bike that wants to ride like I do. :thumbsup:
After working in all the usual industries in the area; construction, office furniture, and automotive (recently "rightsized"), I now work in the food industry.

I finally had time to do an authentic SS1000 around Lake Michigan last year. Rather lengthy ride report here; http://lakemichiganironbutt.blogspot.com/

Having a full time job, two teenagers and a 12 yr old don't give me a lot of time to ride, so I visit with my silver therapist whenever I have a chance.

This is going to turn into the weekly Region 4 Saturday/Sunday road race!


Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: wibornz on March 23, 2009, 05:46:21 pm
Well i WORK ALL night, get 3 1/2 hours of sleep wake up jump on the bike ride like hell because I know that popps66 knows that I know where the bridge is.  Does it matter no!!!!!

(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/03-23-09_1411.jpg)

I am about forty seconds late.

The area is a nice ride so I join up with popps66 ( who I thought was working today apparently not)

(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/03-23-09_1412.jpg)

So we hook up and ride off to popps66 tag.  

So  here is the next tag


(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/03-23-09_1619.jpg)


Put on about 200 miles on today tagging.  Good luck hunting.  It is funny because on Saturday I was talking with Clay about tagging the covered bridge and low and behold it gets tagged by servojockey.  This is dangerous....Servojockey is thinking like me and I don't even know him.

Ex-girlfriend....She was hotter when she was 20. hehehehehehe  No not ex-girlfirend, she was the ex-girlfriend of a friend of a friend that always tried to hang out with us but we cut her loose....She wanted to be one of the guys so bad she had a sex change and thats no bull.

Hint look at page 64 of one of the more popular motorcycling book about motorcycling across Michigan. Hope that helps.  I am sure Pollux knows were it is at.

Post by: FBRR on March 23, 2009, 07:24:03 pm
Thanks! I should have known that. My Uncle use to own the elevator there!!

Also no one has yet given the location of the cover bridge. I also have pictures from several years at that bridge. We stop and collect our thoughts ( such as they are at that bridge almost every year).

It just north of Lowell on the river.

Post by: pops66 on March 23, 2009, 08:12:48 pm
 :headscratch:
Here I am an easy run to Lowell, up the road to Fallassburg Park, thru the twisties to the Fallassburg Covered Bridge. Standing and taking the tag and I hear a roar downshifting, there is a cloud of dust, and then a Hi Ho C-14. Wibornz -  "What the heck are you doing here", he says, "I thought you were working today?" :p  :D

I thought he was sleeping, so I didn't call. :crazy:

We hooked up and ran from there to the next tag. It was a great day for a ride.

Keep riding and I will see you down the road. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

That's a great story.  As this becomes more popular I totally expect that to happen more often.  Boov and Servojockey must have only missed each other by a short bit too...

Geoff....He got out of the hospital on Wednesday last week, by Saturday he had the flu.  It is raining at his house. :(

He will bounce back.  He is like a .25 cent steak......Tough.  He is not the sit around the house kinda guy so he is going stir crazy.

When he gets a little better, I will be bringing motorcylces over to his house to work on seeing that he has a motorcycle lift and no motorcycle right now.  I am just tyring to talk him out of a pirate bike.  He want a 09 HD with anti lock brakes.

You would have thought I had red hand grips. I saw 7 and 8 K RPM in 6th GEAR!!
NOT GOOD! I also lost my License

36 miles from the house, if I would have looked sooner, I would have gone and tag the bridge before work.  So if this remains untagged for more than a couple days, either I or popss66 will have it.  Someone better put a helmet on and get into the game.

Ted see's the tag posted last night and talks about looking into it this weekend......

I start scheming.....

The planning of the tag without Wibornz's knowledge     $0
Convincing Pops66 to get the tag with me                   $ 1.26 (cup of Tim Horton's coffee at geezer rate)
Pulling off getting the tag and posting without Wibornz's knowledge.........

Wooden Nickel coordinates plotted in GPS (51 miles/60 minutes to destination) and I'm an early riser.  Photos to be posted on arrival.   ;)  I've got a good place for the next tag too.

"Up with the sun, gone with the wind,

Franistasin $_()#*[email protected])%*#!  I pulled the title out for the bike to be sold today and realized that I failed to transfer it to me.  Normally not a big deal, but it's already filled out with my info.  So, I'll be spending the morning getting that straight instead of doing what I'd prefer.  Thankfully, instant titles are still available locally.  

Someone go for this today and post up a new locale.  I'll get out this week and tag it, where ever you end up putting it.

Got it!  Photos when I get home.

(http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w71/sleazyrider/IMG_0089.jpg)

That was fun.  Not!  2.5 hours of freezing what little gonads I do have off.   :crazy:  I left work with the temps hovering in the 38* range, telling my co-worker that I was thinking about doing this.  The plan was to head west on 96 and see how it felt when I got to US-23 (I forgot the Gerbings pants at home).  I can always just head north home from there.  It was nice at that point, so I went ahead and slabbed it out to Webberville and headed south to Dansville for the tag.  By the time I hit town, it was getting colder fast.  I grabbed one shot, stopped at the BP for a cuppa coffee and saddled up to run home.  It was all backroads to stay out of the ferocious winds and keep the speed down a bit.  Up M-52 to Grand River all the way to M-59 and 25 miles across to home.  All totalled, it was right at 125 miles round trip.  The last few miles were downright miserable, as Mother Nature decided I wasn't bad off enough.  She called in the rain.   :bluduh:

So, here's the tag for those brave enough to venture out this week.

Thanks for the link. I Knew it was nice inside, but not that nice. My neighbor has painted a few vehicles for them and said he would take me over to see the place one day. I'm going to press the issue now.  :cool:

No clues on this one. I was able to find turn by turn directions to it with information that is available in the picture.

Hey Wooderson- are you a teacher?


Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: CLAY on April 05, 2009, 10:06:31 pm
Nice one Mr Awesome.  That one required some serious research and a big chain of googling to find.  Granted, I won't be able to get there for quite some time, but the search was still enjoyable!   :bigok:


Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: Wooderson on April 05, 2009, 10:43:18 pm



Hey Wooderson- are you a teacher?


No, but I stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night  :D  I volunteer in a 5th grade classroom but that is as close as I can get.  I admire teacher's, patience in spades and can get to work at the same time every day.  

Tried using the clues from the pic, I must be missing something.  I tried many google searches and couldn't find anything close to Lapeer, guess I am not as big of a Google Ninja as I thought.  More searching tonight and a quick swap to snow tires in the morning and it is all mine  :eek:

Sweet tag Mr. Awesome.  Looks like some of you have figured it out, hopefully it wasn't from the link I posted  :crazy:

Edit:  Just got it, I was reading the street number incorrectly, now just have to get those snow's on

I grew up 5 miles form the White Horse. Tomorrow would be a good day to tag it. Great place to get some fish on a Thursday night. Too bad my bike is getting painted. I have been going crazy watching this thread and with no bike to ride.

Nope. I don't work there. You do the tag, call me, I will put on the coffee, or a pop, and you can stop by the house. I am just up the street past the Lions Club.  :thumbsup:

Yeah. If you want to ride, I have been looking for someone to take a ride with. Call me and let's go. Maybe get a thumb ride put together?

I only had a few minutes to get out and get the tag and then the new one too. So, it wasn't going too far from that farm. That's a steely that I caught this weekend at Tippy Dam. Nice fresh chromer. I have to work on Thursday. So, coffee would need to be in the evening. But, if you make it Friday morning, There's a great little breakfast place only couple of minutes away. Sundance Grill on 24. Good eats. I would be happy to meet for breakfast.

Why two options you ask, A requires 0.25 miles of dirt road and if you go by after dark the gates may be locked.

Hell yea I know where the covered bridge is. Just no time to ride today.  Maybe on Friday.  With everybody and their brother, step sister, uncle, aunt and best friends neighbor jumping in on this, it is getting harder and harder to be first to the tag.  Might have to put nitrous on the c14 or at least text the picture back to my kid so that he can upload it and post for me!!!!  Would that be cheating, or just morally wrong????  Or maybe I will have to get a 3G phone so that I can upload the pic and post immediately.  Man it's tough to stay on top.

And hey Clay, I work all the time.  I just never sleep!!! hehehehehe.  Only slept 7 hours over three days.  RIDE, RIDE RIDE, think about riding while eating, ride ride ride, getting tired, dream about riding while sleeping, work work work work think about riding at work, ride home from work, go past home and keep riding.  Good thing the wife understands what it means to love a motorcycle rider.  

So on friday, get home from work and get to bed about 7:00 am, get up at 10:00....  Be on the bike by 10:30 and ride ride ride ride.....Yea only slept four hours today and will be up all night.  Saturday the wife is working OVERTIME......You know what that means?  On the bike all day saturday while momma makes the big bucks.  So if your getting the picture, I work, ride, and sometimes sleep.  Phototagging I will go.  See you the rode.

Dam, you beat me by one minute. Took my pic at 9:30 this morning, and just got around to loading it.

Will have to save my new tag for next time.


Dang it! I'm only ten minutes from the White Horse. That's what I get for actually working at work and spending time with my family, and not checking this thread at least 6 times a day..




I won't let that happen again.

So it's about 11:00 pm no one has gone to Frankenmuth. The wife is in bed so no chicken dinner, no shopping just in to Frankenmuth take the tag and back out of town with no stupid azz trinkets. The Killerkatananothesword gets home from work and I say "Hey it's 35 degrees out feel like riding to Frankenmuth."  Well he tells his girlfriend shes got to go because his dad can not go it alone.  So we suit up get some gas and like a prom dress we are off.  We ride like the wind for an hour and a half and get there about 12:30.

We are out out of Frankenmuth  :twofinger: :twofinger:

So off we go to head home.  We do a quick stop off at Miejer for some hand and shoe warmers.  Back on the road to our tag. Ride Ride Ride Ride.  

Dam its cold.

SO here is the next tag.  Good luck.

Ok, I am not sure if I am officially obsessed yet. I woke up this morning wondering if someone had tagged the bridge yet. I was thrilled to find it much closer to home;

Only 100 or so miles.

Well Pops66 dragged me out of bed at 0600 to go tagging what could I say.  The wife (Just Carla) is in Chi-town shopping.  So I took her bandit for a ride.  It is just over two hundred miles but we made it.

(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/04-18-09_1137.jpg)

Well back to ridinging.  We will post the next tag in a couple hours.  Have to ride like the wind to get there and back home before dark.  Was a great ride up.


Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: wibornz on April 18, 2009, 05:49:41 pm
Ok so ride ride ride ride get something to eat ride ride ride ride.....Here is the new tag  

(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/04-18-09_1351.jpg)

From steam boats to steam locomotives.

Put about 450 miles on today.  Photo tagging is getting expensive.

Send wife to Chicago to shop....Have no idea how much she spent,

Left 40 bucks with the kids...No time to grocery shop.

Road about 900 miles just this month photo tagging......OOOOyea.  I think Pops66 and me have been around the state a little bit this month!!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D


Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: pops66 on April 18, 2009, 07:06:04 pm
 :bigok: I think Wibornz said it best - OOOOOOYEA!!!!!!!!

Hit the road early - drag Wibornz out of bed - Start again.  

Barryton for Breakfast - finally started to warm up - bright sun - light traffic - (when you get old you will understand) - coffee in Manistee after tagging the City of Milwaukee - post it and Start again. Tag the next opportunity and back on the road. A great day to ride about 450 miles and home by 7 PM.  :lol: :crazy: :rolleyes:

Is all this worth it?  :headscratch: :headscratch:

Yep! There was snow on the ground along the road, piled in on the North side of buildings, but we toughed it out and after a cup of coffee while we were posting the tag in Manistee, we said "oh what the hell".  The sun was out - the roads were dry - lets ride!

I can't ride without getting pulld over.  Nice state officer, we chatted for a bit, he took my info and ran it, and I was on my way.

Next tag coming soon- but I have to put on a pretty good run to go get it- then find another wireless place.  I'm in a nice little cafe in Cadillac (which is where the tag was).  Time to move on (after breakfast of course!).   :bigok:

Well I hate it when I ride all day and miss the tag.  It's funny because I brought my lap top the last time so that I knew I would not get beat.  Out early and tag as soon as possible or you may miss it.  This photo tagging is getting competative.  Hehehehehehe  you guys are safe from Wibornz for a while.  I have a full weekend this weekend, a full work week with no time to play coming up. Then another full weekend, and then I leave to ride down south for five days.  Then back to another full week with no free time.  But hey I am going to get some very cool training so it is worth it.  So enjoy because I will be back into it before you know it.  Then no tag will be safe.

Hehe, I'm still up here. I brought my laptop too...if I would have got the tag I was gonna beat feet back down to A2 to place the next tag on the 'right' side of the state. Since you had already posted up the tag I decided to camp here for the night (I love motorcycle camping). This is my camp site at the state campground directly across the lake from the steam loco.

Looks like your new tag is already taken so I'm eagerly awaiting the next one as I'm strategically located to blast down the left coast  :D. Be forewarned I'm an early riser.

That would be correct ;) well it was from 1993 on my old CR500 on the second or third dune past the big hill.

Good call

PS: dont forget that there is a boobie bar in caddlecrack :cool: I hear they have good food :lol:

Great tag. I like the fact that there is no text hints in the photo.

I knew that looked familiar! I should have checked on here before I went riding today. Its only a few miles from home. Well maybe in the morning I will head over and tag before work.

Ok Screw it! It's 67 degrees out, only 9 miles away, and I am not tired. Why wait till morning. So I made my first tag at 1230 am on a Monday morning! Left the house at midnight and back by 1245. 18 miles round trip.Took longer to upload the pics and remember how to post them on here than it did to ride up and take them. I need to take a photography class and learn how to take better night photos.  :headscratch: I can't believe all the times I have driven by on 131 at night and never noticed the changing colored light display.

And here you go. From a ride last Friday. I hope someone can get some good miles in to get to it. There is some nice country riding just north of it.

Yes there is some good riding around this.   :crazy: Owell off to work I go.  Then I have to take the bike into the shop.  The battery for the air sensor in the rear wheel needs to be replaced.  Have to get this done before my trip down south next week.  The dam warning on the dash is distracting.

Great job Poweranger ! I was going to tell everone it would be a good night time tag.

Here are the other clue pictures I had just in case.

(http://i661.photobucket.com/albums/uu332/rietmand/IMAG0122.jpg)

Shot of the overall building.
Then I was going to let everone know it was within 2 miles of the 131 & 94 interchange.

Finally this would be the givaway.

(http://i661.photobucket.com/albums/uu332/rietmand/IMAG0121.jpg)

I figuered there was someone who knew where the "Icon" as they call it was located.

I actually noticed the building in the picture before the icon. Had you not had the building in the pic I may not have noticed it all. :crazy: I used to drive by on 131 sometimes seven days a week twice a day and never really remember the icon. I think someone told me that building has an actual operational Fourdrinier paper machine inside?

Okay...here is the new tag.

I have another pic of it with signage in it that will give the location away if needed.

If you're coming from the northwest there is a great road to ride that pretty much takes you right to this. There is also a Tavern that serves a great burger a block up the street from it to the east.

Award to: First Martin Corporation
For: Staebler and Son Coal and Coke Company Trestle, 201 Depot Street
First Martin Corporation has preserved the remains of Staebler and Son Coal and Coke Company’s railroad trestle siding. Michael Staebler began his coal business in 1885 at his Germania Hotel (now the Earle Restaurant) on the corner of Washington and Ashley. By 1908 he had a yard on Depot Street next to the railroad. When First Martin constructed its new building at this site, it not only preserved the historic trestle, but also found a 1950s Detroit and Mackinac coal car from Durand, Mich., to sit on top of the tracks.

Found in Ann Arbor.  Holy quick tags today!

I have a canon rebel xt with a Tamron 17-50 f2.8. Its a fairly economical setup that takes nice shots. Both shots were handheld with out a flash at iso 1600. Next time ill bring the tripod and take some really great shots. I could also really use some filters! Some additional pics below.

(http://sleazyrider.smugmug.com/photos/523494513_mcsFo-M.jpg)

Hints will start on Wednesday.

I *almost* screwed this one up.  Took three nice shots, got back on the bike and headed towards lunch.  About 8 miles down the road, I realized none of the pictures had the bike in them.  Whip it around, hightail back and get the above picture.  DOH!

Some great tags lately, and I actually knew where some of them were.  Damn job has kept me close to home but maybe if this latest one lasts til the weekend I can find a way to get there., it probably won't though based on the recent activity.  BTW, no hints, it was the first hit on a three word google search, not too hard to find  :lol:

Here is the new tag. With the weather getting nicer and getting more saddle time, I thought this appropriate. I know of at least four of these in the state. This one has a bunch of antena's and stuff on top, others I have seen do not, or at least I have not noticed them. You must tag this exact one and not one of the others.

Good Luck all.  :bigok:

A2 to Cadllcrack and back 446 mi. 4/24, 4/25.

A2 to Marcellus and back 246 mi. 4/27.

(http://sleazyrider.smugmug.com/photos/525022459_SDboc-M.jpg)

Lame, but moved.  It started pouring on my way south.  I stopped for lunch and some internal debate on the tag.  It just jumped out in front of me while putting the gear on.  I really wanted to head much further north, but the rain wasn't helping my enthusiasm.   :lol:



Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: sleazy rider on April 30, 2009, 05:21:16 pm
For the directionally challenged folks, this one is right near a much earlier tag.  If I moved the camera a bit left, you'd see the old tag.  I moved the tag  ~40 miles from the Millington water tower and NOT south.  Start at the beginning of this thread.  That's the LAST hint.

Attached are the original "bonus tag" shots from the other side!!!

Also being an old coote, my father was an engineer at Simplicity where this clock originally was mounted on the factory. As a kid I remember going up inside the clock and watching it "peel" ( LOUD from inside!!).

Hehe...it's funny you can see when everyone was there by what time the clock on the tower says. yeah looks like we missed each other by ten minutes or so. Unfortunately I live 64 miles away and got stuck waiting for a very slow train in town on the way out.

I remembered the aircard about half way there and said screw it I'll just have to fly back home and hope for the best. Oh well.  :o

Yeah I wrapped all my electronics and laptop in nice waterproof packs and ziplock bags and broke out with the rain flys on the bags. That was my anti-rain dance.

If I would have said screw it... no rain in the forecast it would have rained for sure!

This is going to be a battle, it looks like there are at least four people sitting around ready to hit the asphalt!  Google skills, proximity, and the ability to post from the road will be key (no fancy i-phone or Verizon card for me, but I am going to make a run at it anyway)

Naw, I was just kidding about getting involved today.  It's time for a new rear tire on the GS.  Them damn things wear out every four months or so and I'm just about ready for another 6k mile engine service this spring.  There's also two big trips (New England and Tellico Plains) on the schedule in the next 30 days.  It's gonna be a GOOD summer of riding.

^You didn't get involved and it still rained  :crazy:  No problem, it gave me a chance to test the rain worthiness of my gear, Motoport Jak, no problems, Belstaff pants, not so much.

What's the protocol for the as yet unposted next tag?  Is there a six hour grace period?  Does ChuckFever post one cause he got there second?  If something doesn't show up soon I vote for ChuckFever putting one out there.  I need a reason to ride tomorrow morning or else I will have to do yard work  :D

Do you want people to have to ride to the new tag after the old one has been tagged?

Or do you want people to have a new tag already in their back pocket when they go to the current tag?

All depends how everyone wants to play the game. I for one prefer that you RIDE to the new tag AFTER you tag the old one. Makes the game much more interesting IMO.

What if someone wants to take the tag to Copper Harbor? Do they ride to Copper Harbor first before going after the current tag? Doesn't make any sense. If you don't want to wait for a tag get your butt out of bed when most won't and go get the damn thing.  :twofinger:

The problem with that is that it will make people go shorter distances to the new tag because they won't technically have tagged the old one yet. I personally don't want to just ride across town to get a new tag. In fact these last three tags (before mine) were too close together geographically IMO.

Post by: ChuckFever on May 02, 2009, 11:21:29 am

I know exactly what your trying to say.

Say you took a pic of the tank this morning then go to Flint (a short distance) after for the next one and then post BOTH (the tank and your new tag) up at the same time. I also take a picture of the tank but go a much farther distance than you for my second pic then post both.

Under your method you get the tag because you had a shorter ride and got to post both of your pics at the same time earlier than me because I rode further for the second pic before I could post. That method would just serve to make people ride around the block for the second pic so they could hurry up and post both pics.

Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: wibornz on May 02, 2009, 11:52:35 am
The new tag does not have to be something you tagged on the same day,  It  just should be posted soon after posting the tag you tagged.  If you make it something that has to be tagged after you find the tag, the tag will always be near the same location as the original tag.......No fun :( :(  

Just keep playing the way we are so that the tag moves around the state.

I agree. Since there is so much activity with our phototag I'm going to have some future tags saved up ready to post when a current one is tagged.

This kind of problem isn't a bad one though. Most phototag games the current tag sits for days before someone tags it. Here we get itchy if the new one isn't posted in a few hours. Michigan riders are hardcore  :bigok:

I disagree.  I like the fact that a guy can get the tag, then you know he's off to get the new one.  It encourages tags that are widespread instead of "Ooo- I want the tag so I'll tag the train in Cadillac then the park in Cadillac".  I like the fact that a guy can tag something, then you know while we wait he's riding out to get the new one.  Also, it discourages people from building up a picture file of future tags.  I like the fact that they are done in the same ride.

I have take the new tag picture on the way to the tag I am fetching though.  I'd just hate to see people taking tag pictures throughout the summer, and posting them without actually currently riding there.  To me that's part of the fun- knowing another rider has been here days (or moments) before.  Even double and triples tags are fun that way.

If the hang time becomes an issue we could start another MI phototag thread, so there are two games going at the same time...

Just my .02 worth;  Why not put a mileage limit 'tween the tags???  ie; No less than 50 miles, no more than 100????  That would eliminate or lessen the advantage for those of you who are retired or self-employed over us who want to play along but are at a disadvantage due to the work/family thing.....

My .015%.
I respectfully disagree with mileage limits. I have ridden over 200 miles for a tag and have taken circuitous lines back to home. If I wanted to tag something out of the way but still in Region 4, I would not be able too.   :headscratch:

My other .005%
Is that we have a really good system now.  :thumbsup: We have ridden to tags, taken the shot, only to find that we missed the post.  :crazy:
My reason for doing this is not to be shown as the rider who got there first. Don't get me wrong, I like being first and snagging the tag.

However - My reason is the ride. When you young guns grow up, you will understand.

Perhaps a second thread for runners up might work.
Ride out, tag it, if you are first - post it.
If not, go to the runner up thread, post the tag and rag on the Dirt Bag that got there first.  :twofinger:

That's an easy Googlevestigation. First line of the first page.

Waaaahhhhhh. I had to wait for the tag to come up. Waaaaaahhhhh.  :fitz:

Who cares about having to wait an hour or two for a tag. Anticipation my friend. Anticipation.  :inlove:

It's all about exploring and getting to see some of the landmarks that michigan has to offer. I found one this weekend, but I didn't stash the tag in my camera for a rainy day.

Get the tag, ride to the new one. I'll wait.

I agree with pops. Its about the ride. No need for a bunch of "rules". Keep it simple and fun. Its not a competition. No prizes or trophies handed out here. Get out, ride, tag, and hope you post it first.  :rolleyes: No need for mileage. Now if I can just find as much time to ride as Pops66 maybe I could get some tags that require a whole day of riding!

"happiness is warm oil in my bike"


It was great fun meeting and riding with both of you. Thanks for breakfast...next time we ride, lunch is on me. :)

Take care in the Mideast..."keep the clean side up and the dirty side down"

(note these pics are not 'Tags')

This is The Hunters Lodge in Saugatuck. The owner is in the pic. He has a first class operation and is 'biker' friendly.

The place is flawless. He even built a bonfire in the fire pit out back for us and 'drank beer and told lies' with us.

For those that will be traveling/passing thru the west coast of Michigan this summer, this place is a great find and a nice place to shut down for the night. I highly recommend it...

Sorry Doogman, I had to do it.  I woke up at 4:30 Tuesday morning to find a new tag with plans on grabbing it.  The only problem was I couldn't find it  :crazy:  It was well worth the  effort, both online and the ride, CF's clues verified it for me today.  133 miles roundtrip, of course I didn't go in a straight line though.  Can't wait to see the next one but with the approaching weather it may be a few days!

BTW, Great tag Krellian, SM, CF, it took some digging and some riding :bigok:

This WAS the Daisy air gun factory (BB guns for us older folks), built in 1882 in Plymouth Michigan. They demo'd it in 05 'to build condos on the lot, but left this wall as a constant reminder of how stupid we are for destroying our history to replace it with cookie cutter plastic condos.  :headscratch:

Yeah Wooderson, your wall tag was a great choice. When I saw your pic, I knew I had seen the wall before but for the life of me I could not remember in what town. I have been thru Plymouth on Main St. probably 20 times since 2005, and have only been by the wall once (Prior to this morning). Interesting to find out the history of it.

I smeared out "Barret Paving Materials Inc". and "Whittaker and Gooding Company" (although Whittaker and Gooding Company was in the sign still at a later point.

If I would have left them in initially, I might as well have posted a google map to the tag with the pics. :crazy:

BTW...I posted that second pic unaltered at first and got a PM telling me that the second pic gave the location away...so at first I was gonna pull the second pic, but decided to just block out the names of the companies because the sign had some good information on the Caterpillar.

And I'll end on this note...you won't have a lot of complaining to do if you get on your bike and go get a tag instead of over analyzing how someone who is actually riding and getting the tags does it duceduce...errr doogman. :rolleyes:

Well Chucky my friend. Some of us have to work (believe it or not) and have families to tend to also. So leisure riding for tags is on the weekend if the time is available.

So, my tagging is mostly from the computer.

I am not over analizing anything. Just see a trend in photo retouching that sucks.

Just saying leave em natural. That's all.

I hear what you're saying. Actually the game has kind of morfed into trying to find where the tag is as much as finding the time to ride to it.

I didn't even read the info on the sign in my second pic before I posted it and then got the PM from Bender (yes I'm calling you out Bender!  :D), so I figured people didn't want easy tags.

See what you started Bender!!! :D

It's no big deal.

I just like to see what I am looking at. To remove a majority of the landmark just seems to change the game into hide the tag.

I guess part of the fun is to leave the landmark whole and find creative angles that leave you guessing.

I agree, I thought your second pict had a water drop on the lens until I looked at it again.

Chuck, You free on Friday? Want to go for a good tag?

horse racing tracks  (http://"http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=michigan+horse+racing+tracks&btnG=Google+Search&aq=0&oq=michigan+horse+racing+tr")are there in Michigan?  I will take your advice and take more interesting angles and not alter the original pic.  That is more clever anyway :burnout:

3 Ninja's and a Beemer walk into a bar............. :twofinger:



Great to meet you Doug...It was a fun ride! Beautiful coastline.

Thanks for breakfast!

To answer your joke I think it usually goes somthing like this:

"3 Ninja's and a Beemer walk into a bar"...

...and sit down and decide which Ninja is going to the BMW dealer to fetch the replacement final drive that just crapped out in the middle of nowhere!!!

 :lol: :lol: :lol:

 :twofinger:



Hey...look what the postman brought yesterday:

I've found 4 different 'Pirates Cove' locations in MI. Two of them I've eliminated as possibilities. Of the remaining 2, one is far and the other is REALLY far.

I haven't been able to find a pic on-line of any of them... :headscratch:

I was running late on sunday getting back home after tagging caseville, so I didn't have any time to get creative with it so I hit a spot I usually hit for lunch once and awhile, close to home and your typical bar food, nice locals, although I haven't been there when its full of HD pirates  :lol: :lol: :lol:

Actually that was creative twotrack...it had a visible name on the building...which there were at least 5 restaurants/bars named that in MI...no pics of any of them on the net...and finally the place actually had another name besides the one on the side of their building. A tuff tag to find. I think doogman had got it on the net but couldn't definitively verify it without a pic.

That was a stumper...now who gets to it first?  :bigok:

if you go to google maps, copy and paste the cordinates it will come up pretty close to the spot, then use the nearby search feature with the name and then sweet sucess :twofinger:

Well...I got up this morning and decided to change the oil and filter as it was a bit over due.

Now I'm looking at the radar and what's headed our way ain't pretty. I could probably make it up there and back, but I wanted to go somewhere good cause this area's been  :deadhorse:.

I'll tell you what Dave...

Care to put your money where your mouth is?

Lets go find a one mile section of super twisty road...SUPER TWISTY. We'll mark off a start line and mark off a finish line...one mile apart. You can bring ANY bike you want. We'll get doogman to wait at the end with a stopwatch and then have him post up the times here.

I am outright challenging you. We'll see how good of a rider you are.

Now if your XR was a Supermotard conversion you would have a great tool for the job.

These things beat ZX6's at track days with professional riders.

Ok for a hint.  The dam is named after the road that I took the picture from.  The Dam is on the Grand River.  The Grand River source is by Jackson Michigan.

Tag is still there, Amber and I went back to Motorcycle school!

So I promised the GF that I would lay off the bike this week and do some chores for the upcoming holiday weekend.

But now that Krellian has had ONE DAY of motorcycle school I figured I'd better go and get some seat time to keep the skillzz sharp.  :D

Post by: Squijummonkey on May 19, 2009, 10:55:28 am

It would be nice if you posted what and where the post are. I would like to find the last one on a long day ride.

Info needed....


P;


The Dam was in Easton Rapids on Smithville road I believe. Very nice roads getting there =D

The Mills (last post) was on US 12 between Jackson and Ypsilanti, something like Irish Hills Mills? Again, very nice roads with a few twisties.
This view might be a bit more helpful if you know the area/history

Gosh thanks for the info. I think I might have to go there and check that place out.

Hehe, I can't give you the exact town, it was on US 12. They are the Irish Hills Twin Towers in Southeast Jackson county =P


Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: ChuckFever on May 19, 2009, 11:19:35 am
The towers were located in the "Irish Hills". That's how it's known. Sorry for not posting the locality...I just figured everbody knew where that was.

It was a huge tourist trap "town" back when I was a kid and everyone hit it once a summer. It had Go Carts, "Mystery Hill, "Prehistoric Forest", "Stagecoach stop" with cowboys having mock gun fights....etc. You get the idea. Looks like most of the businesses have gone Tango Uniform.

Here is the new tag...

Hey all,

I just wanted to apologize for not being in the phototag game since last fall. I will actually be bowing out of this tag post, as I am moving out of MI. Actually, I am moving out of region 4! So if anyone is heading into region 6, look me up, I will be out there in a week!

I just hope I can start as active of a phototag game in Northern Jersey to help me learn the area!

So I got 2 1/2 hours of sleep and I am thinking...Hey a quick ride to get the tag and back.  So Carla is tired and off to bed, it's 9:00 pm and of course I look and no one tagged it today.  Well thats just not right.  I check the weather and rain and more rain is in the forcast.  So if I want to tag....Out to the bike I must go.  I was hoping that someone would tag it so I would not have a reason to go...But NO.  I plug in the address from the web site into the GPS. Is it the right address well of course not, but hey after riding a couple hours I am in Troy Michigan.  I can't go home with out finding it.  So off to a hotel to find free internet.  Into the lobby of a Marriott and about another 1/2 hour of surfing google, I am on the road again.  Well off to Oakland U.  I drive all over campus with no luck it's its after midnight and I find a cop sitting on the edge of the road.  He is able to get me to the Meadow Brook Hall in the dark.  I am sure that it would have been easier to find in the sunshine, but hey sunshine was in short suply at 12:14 am.

So here is another midnight tag.

I know they are a little dark

Okay here's the new one:

Hints to follow if needed. I also have a second pic that will give it away.

First hint: time between posts...and I was never on an interstate/freeway.

I work about fifty hours a week.  I just never sleep.  

Ok Chuck how and the hell did you find that so fast?

And to the others....The tags are safe from Wibornz for awhile.  I am taking the bike in for a tire pressure sensor and new back tire, and new front rotors.  I though since it is going to rain the next couple days.  Time for a little maintenance.  This way I will be back on the bike by thursday.  

Got to change the oil also.  Seams I have put on almost some miles this month.

 :)

I put "Perkins windmill museum in Michigan" in google.

The windmill had "Perkins" on it and you stated in your post that it was a "museum". That gave me this on google:

http://www.michigan.org/Property/Detail.aspx?p=B5136

Put the address in the GPS...grabbed the brain bucket and the gloves and was out the door before my second cup of coffee.

 :bigok:


Okay I googled the tank and it looks like I'm going to have to narrow this down a bit.

The tank is listed here: (not in the first post but further down the page in the "complete listing" post)

http://www.com-central.net/index.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=11345

It looks like there are 4 or 5 possibilities given the time frame. The tank is a M60A0 and it is not at a "VFW"

Post by: ChuckFever on May 26, 2009, 03:01:27 pm



Have fun with this one,
I'll not be trying to find it, too many possable combinations and I like to ride to see what other have found
NOT be a Google expert/sleuth
someone go tag this and we will get on with the game!


Given the type of tank...M60A0...the time frame between posts and the clue that it is not at a "VFW" (per se)...

...there is only ONE possiblity. Another clue...I did not exceed the speed limit.

Post by: ChuckFever on May 26, 2009, 06:18:53 pm



lets see, all I have to do NOW, is plug into mapquest, put in the last tag's position.

estimate that since you were not on interstates so you were not going 70mph. (but I know how you like to speed)

times that estimate (60ish) by the time between posts. (approx one hour and twenty min) = approx 78 miles radius from last Tag

Then ALL I have to do is plug in these 10 addresses and see if they fit the above criteria!



Perfect narrative of deductive logic Dave.  :thumbsup:

Very surprised myself.  Figured this one would have been gone early in the morning with how easy it is to find. If its still there when I get home tonight I'll go grab it. Why dont we save it for saturday and have a group tag. Then we can all run our bikes down the track.  :cool:  Have yet to run the sprint down a track.

Thought I was going to get a performance award tonight. As I pulled into the parking lot to get my pic, a cop car pulls in behind me. I roll up to the bull to set up for my picture and the cop lights me up.  :eek:  She gets out of her car and asks if I am just turning around, since the place of business is closed.  I tell her that I am just taking a pic of the bull for a game we are playing. She asks a few questions about the game, then say's she was just making sure I was not out of gas or having problems with the bike. I thanked her for her concern and she was on her way. Wish I could have gotten the cop car in the pic as well, would have added some light on the subject.  :lol:

Well, I wonder if the tag from somewhere near the original tag site, like outside the fence, counts or if a tag from the real tag site wins??? :twofinger:

If the dam internet provider we use would up his bandwidth so more than 5 people can be on line at one time, I would have had it.

Anyhoo.  Here is my tag pict.

Photobucket

That's not no picture from somewhere close. That's the real thing there Mr.A.  And that's no bull :lol:

Lets see, M-36 to 52, yea boring on 52. To Beard rd, just south of Perry. Beard to Byron rd, then north to Silver Lake rd, right. through Fenton, the road turns to Grange Hall Rd. not a bad rd. East on Grange Hall rd until Dixie Hwy, then north

I think you can handle that Wibornz, so go get it.

I've been to Colorado skiing 6 years ago- and haven't skiied locally since then.  Young kids do that to a guy!  It was the "Hey, our wives are all pregnant, let's go to Colorado for our last guy's hurrah".  It was a blast, but I'm just not that motivated to ski here again, despite having some decent local hills- Bittersweet and Cannonsburg.  Oh well- I have enough hobbies for now.

Post by: wibornz on June 03, 2009, 12:40:14 pm
So I did some searching and found Uncle Bucks............Well now I have to clean out my history folder.  Uncle Bucks is listed on some very interesting sites with interesting links.   :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: ;      ;)  If I hadn't work for so long in a prison...I might have felt dirty.


So now I have been up for 24 1/2 hours and still have a ride ahead of me to get home.  I am thinking that by the time I get home I will have over 280 miles in today.  Man do they ever rack up fast.  So I leave from Uncle Bucks and ride ride ride.  Thinking were to go and tag.  Then the idea hits...  I just took the Connie to a dirty club.....So maybe one club deserve a second club.  There has to be one in this town somewhere.  

So I find this club and go inside and talk to a stripper and the bouncer and say hey I want to bring my girl in...(hehehe) she is right outside.  They him and haw and hey get the manger, dam it Wibornz is phototagging and there is a tag to be taken.

So out come the manager with this line about how it's against policy to take pictures inside the club and that they can't have my bigbutted Connie blocking the fire exit...yadyadyad.  Hey I am breaking new ground here phototagging.  Nobody had tagged their bike inside a building yet let alone a club.  So I say hey policy is meant to be broken, throw open the doors and let me snap a couple shots man. I mean you have to understand.  The manager said "Well from one rider to another lets make it quick.  I said this will be faster than teenage boy getting his first hummer.

So the doors open up and in goes the bigbutt C14.

(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/06-03-09_1136.jpg)

So I understand that not everyone will be able to smooth talk their bike into the club so if you can't get your bike tagged inside the building, this is the alternative less manly tag.

(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/06-03-09_1140.jpg)

So get to looking and make sure your google filter is set correctly as your search may very well be nsfw.

Now to finish my lunch and get me and my bigbutt connie home.  I am burned out and need some sleep.

We stopped at both covered birdges on the way home yesterday.  Took Just Carla down about 4 miles of dirt road....She was not happy thank you...but she loved Whites Covered Bridge.  There where so many cages at it we could hardly park.

We swung back and rode through the other one.  Then highballed it for home.  When we got home, we picked up the tent and went camping for the night.  Got back ten a.m.

You got five-ish weeks to wait.   :lol:  Just get'cher behind up to Cyclemoore.  I'll be there on the GS.  Hell, I can't believe you missed me in that bright yeller 'stich!  Loved the matching flat tracker.   :bigok:

Here's the giveaway clue.  It was on my route home after leaving Deja Vu and passing the Wooden Nickel, if you look at my Spot track.     :augie:

The owner was out loading a customer's car and gave me the usual strange look after I blew past the place, then pulled back in.  I made it to the next turn around and zipped back, laughing maniacally in my helmet on this one.

I figured googling this would be easy, how many whale tail sculptures could there be in MI.  No luck so far, no big deal though cause I have no time to tag.  Wherever it is, it looks cool!

Well dam thats what Pops66 and I get for taking scooters when phototaging!!!!!


(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/06-10-09_1558.jpg)

Maybe is Pops66 wasn't fooling around and riding the bull

(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/06-10-09_1559.jpg)

We could have been first there.  


So its a whale of a tale that we must find?

Back to googling.


Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: pops66 on June 10, 2009, 07:02:13 pm
Crap -  :sleepy: ya lose  :(

It was too nice of a day to blast on the Bully. With the sun out (more or less) at 45 to 50 mph, you can feel the warmth and look around and enjoy the ride.

We went to the flower farm and took the pix. But, Ted was too slow getting back to catch the post. Oh Well, there is always the next one.

BTW, Viperpilot, I'm really not looking for help in finding this (whatever the hell it is) but, a little clue as to what it is would help.


Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: viperpilot on June 10, 2009, 07:33:12 pm
The first clue is that is not in Michigan, but just slightly south.  (OK, this was probably against the rules, but since I didn't see any rules I went for it cause it was cool looking and it wasn't a chicken.)

The second clue is "... and to think I saw it (near) Mulberry Street".

Let me know if you need the "give it away" pic.

I am on vacation the next two weeks.  Photo tag could end up anywhere.  The only reason it is not in the UP is because it rained so hard on Monday, that I took the cage to Kinross.

It would be a nice ride, but the garage and the chores come first, according to the wife that is.

Let me know..

Pollux - Is it worth an Iced Tea?
You didn't get one at Rosie's did you? Your Malt was a long time coming (for the first one) and then you almost got Boovs. Good thing you are a nice guy (not to worry I won't tell anyone) and gave it back. He looked like he needed it.

Beautiful night for a ride.  I missed the caboose while heading southbound.  I reached Moon Road and thought that I had been tricked because I didn't verify Doog's info before going to look for it.  Turned around at Moon Road and it was less than 1/4 mile up.   :)

Now that I look at the picture of his bike closer, I don't think it was him. Some dude laid his VFR down right in front of a auto repair/body shop just before I got to the military surplus store on 24. I hope the guy was all right. I saw the bike parked out front of the auto shop.

Limited funds just like many others means I need to get tags when I can combine them with other tasks.  Tonight I was in Chelsea then popped down to Saline for the tag.

Come get it and drag it back over there.  If this one's still available and the weather is not *too*1 bad on Friday afternoon, it's going somewhere distant on Saturday.   :cromag:

A Huge STN thank you to the man ChuckyFeaver!! :inlove: Thanks for the uploads. I owe you more than 1 beer. :beerchug: :beerchug:

It's a bitch not having a phone or computer on the road to do the uploads. That's where friends come in.

OK, so here are the real pictures from the camera.

First off is the tag of the caboose in South Lyon.
(http://i610.photobucket.com/albums/tt184/doogman4/IMG_3555.jpg)

Here is the plaque and another picture for background on the depot the caboose in parked at.

(http://i610.photobucket.com/albums/tt184/doogman4/IMG_3558.jpg)

Now the next tag.
Tom, I thought you might have this dialed in. I think you are into war history.  :lamer:
(http://i610.photobucket.com/albums/tt184/doogman4/IMG_3561.jpg)

(http://i610.photobucket.com/albums/tt184/doogman4/IMG_3566.jpg)
As Tom said, that last shot is a record of the kills. This is the most decorated, surviving WWII sub. Cool
That was a cool tag and some great scenery on the way there.
Enjoy! :wings:

Ok sorry for not hinting earlier. Been busy with storm aftermath stuff.

It is not an active train station, but you could order a pretty good pizza there.

Breakfast stop:

When I used to come here after hgh school, it was a small Mexican grocey store with about 5 tables in the back.  The most authentic Mexican food you can find.  Now it's bigger, but still good.  Breakfast:

A mural inside the place:

   If you like Mexican food, I'm not sure a more authentic menu exists.  Mexican food, by Mexicans.  And the store is still attached.

Next tag after a ride...

with a railroad bridge close by, still in use.

Yep- Fennville, right downtown on Main (M-89) towards the west end by the Library.  It's awesome.

Curse you giving it away Skeet town!  :twofinger: Are we all giving them away now?   :crazy:  I figured I had a good one here.  Oh well...   :D  If you're daring (or lucky, as I was) you can ride all the way across.  It's under construction on the north end, but if your bike is narrow you can make it past the barricade...

I grew up fishing on the Kalamazoo river here.  This is the big bend- the cement part used to be an area where a ferry crossed the river before the bridge existed.:
(http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l58/clay_lubbers/Tag/tag2005.jpg)

Funny story- my buddy Mark and I wanted to eliminate the big bend, so during high water we took shovels out and dug through the bend- water started to flow.  It slowed washed, and now after 20 years the big bend is becoming and oxbow lake.  Obviously it would have happened anyway, but it's cool to think you had a part.

Here's the gimee that was coming if no one knew where it was:
(http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l58/clay_lubbers/Tag/tag2007.jpg)

The river is up about 5-6 feet right now.

I had it located by simple deduction.  Looked at the last tag, found the nearest river requiring a bridge and searched by Kalamazoo River bridges.  It popped up on a train photo website.  From there, it was a simple googling to do the location.


Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: CLAY on June 23, 2009, 07:09:22 am
Now that's quality investigation!  Nice work.   :bigok:  There some good riding to be had in the area- nice woods.  Fennville is a quaint town.  New Richmond boomed during the fur boom (there was a tarding post a little ways up river) and during the logging boom.  They actually kept a spare locomotive there back in the day to help trains get up the grade heading north.  Several of the old buildings are still there.  It's a cool place- definately off the beaten path.  You *only* get there is you are going to New Richmond.  The ped bridge used to be a cr bridge- when I was a kid it had planks on it- run off the planks and you'd need a tow truck or jack to get your car back up off the iron.  The Ped bridge still swings via a hand crank- they rebuilt the mechanism when they redid the bridge.  Stay dry- I'd bet the river it still rising- but you had a couple feet before it got on the road on the north end.

And now it's time to go tag it.    If any of you FFs get there before me, put up the next tag quick.  I'll spend the whole day on the left coast if I have to.  There are a few locations in my GPS that I bet you have fun finding.   :bigok:

Good point Clay.

I understood that if I thought I knew where the tag was, I PMd the poster and checked. If I was right, I would post that I knew and would get there as time and opportunity permitted. That way if someone else had the tag and was able to make it, I would not steal their thunder because  :needpics:.

I may be wrong, but, half the fun of the tag is the digging to find it or the knowledge packed away in your experience  :headscratch:. Then the run.

Question: Is the tag still open? Tom is going over and I assume he will tag it and get us back on the road.

This one's just for the Muskegonites who wish the tag were more north.   :twofinger:

Su Casa was good, but I think I hit them on a bad day.  Had some tamales that were overdone, but the rice and beans were damn good.  Their pico de gallo is superb.  It's nice having the wireless reach from the library all the way there too.   :bigok:

My limit was nearly reached in the heat today.  Right at 450 miles of mostly back roads and lots of water intake to help cool the body.  Damn glad I dug the mesh gear out.

So, I got outta work and needed to ride. So I went here;

What do a GS and a boat anchor have in common?

(http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d33/pseudohnim/R1150GS/SDC10322.jpg)

If you ever drop a GS, you will know when you try to pick it up.  :lol:

And finally the Tag;

(http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d33/pseudohnim/R1150GS/SDC10326.jpg)

This is famous pier from a view you don't see every day. Here is a closer view;

(http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d33/pseudohnim/R1150GS/SDC10327.jpg)

The challenge is getting a picture from closer to the end of the pier. I could not get closer due to some kind of a gathering that was taking place.

Good Luck!

Even with mesh gear and summer gloves it was almost too hot today. :firedevil: Hurray for AC.  :wings:

Hmmm, work till 7 tonight and tomorrow off.  That leaves about 3 hours of daylight this evening to avoid the forest critters on the road.  Time to test my quick packing for camping out abilities.   :gdog:  Anyone got a recommendation for a campground just north of Grand Rapids?  If not, I'll probably camp at Ionia State Park and enjoy a nice campfire. 

Oh, someone please tag this mofo today and move it out of the city.  They're getting ready for their big annual downtown bash.  I know where it's headed after this one.   :naughty:

TAG!  I've been past this church many times taking the long way home- but I still had to find the location with Google Earth since I'm never looking at streets when I pass it:

The long shot- it's very picturesque:
(http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l58/clay_lubbers/Tag/3004.jpg)
  It's really in the middle of nowhere.  Just east of New Salem, MI, southwest of Grand Rapids, really in my back yard.

   New tag coming tonight after dark (if I can get away) or tomorrow morning- I figure I have a 24 hr window, right?  I just couldn't pass this one up.  Thought you'd slip one by me, right Maxman?

Yupper- one of the few that survived the fire.  The chuch was founded by the founder of Holland, the Rev Albertus C. Van Raalte.  Interesting story- turns out the local American Indians didn't much care for the Dutch.  Evidently they were tight ass bastards to deal with.  Imagine that!   :bigok:

So here's the scoop.  Boov and I were heading out to get the tag.  Maxman calls us while we are both heading out to meet and says "Hey- I just tagged, you guys want to do it together?  You must be out riding".  We get to the place Boov and I were going to meet, call Maxman (Minutes after he called us), so we decide to do the tag together.  So, we retagged- after dark.  Here are is the retag with all three bikes:

Not an easy find.  I don't think it would be found with out the clues.  Like I said, I had been by it a thousand times without noticing it.  So someone tag it.  I have a couple more hard to find tags.

Well so there are like 12000 Blue Star Memorial hwy signs.  Well back to google.

Post by: Loki on July 05, 2009, 07:47:46 pm
That was my daughter trying to help the cause today. Thanks Maus..

The Blue Star sign was at the Lighthouse Replica, Ted. its not the next tag.

I had a nice ride, slab to Clare. Found the light house replica still intact. Got the usual smiles and interested looks as I drove up the walk way.

Then it was off to the next, was going to pick the church that my nephew was married in but found something just as interesting,

Its the original house a work shop of a family that was into drugs...




Of course as I am wondering around the grounds my parking abilities get some unwelcome notice..

Well, I was out the door at 0900, back in the driveway at 2:15. The mileage was not even looked at.

A nice short tag run. I will insert hints as needed.

Your original tag was not easy to google. Woodersons post with the link to the extra pics gave it away for me.

It was an excellent tag. I had never been to Midland and many of the small towns I passed through while zig zaggin my way across the state.

Thanks for a great ride destination Pollux.

Search Bortell's fisheries. Take some time to try the fish. Cooked while you wait. If fish is not you style you could stop here for a Hot dog. Its north of Pentwater within a mile of Lake Michigan. Turn north when you see this place to find the tag.

You seem easy to confuse!  :headscratch:

three people tagged the bridge that day!
We then went to the Grand Rapids Classic Bike meet and met up with
ST-N'ers, decided we did not want to go home and rode up the west coast of MI.
around the "fingers" and slabbed it home on the third day, 900 some odd miles total.
I posted the pick of the "chained bike" because from the road it looked like a Harley
chained to a rock, I thaught it was cute, so I took a picture.

SO
for you easily confused ones,  :twofinger:

the TAG is

5528 S. Lakeshore Dr., halfway between Ludington and Pentwater, 231-843-3337.

That is the way it is with Geezers, we are easily confused.  :headscratch: It kinda goes with the territory.  :sleepy:

I was planning to be in the Ludington area tomorrow anyway and wanted to make sure before I rode all the way down there.  :lol:
It would be an extra 15 or 20 miles for crying out loud. But, Lakeshore is a good road so We will make do. :smoking:

By the way, Thanks for the clarification and fish lunch at noon.

I have been up north and scrubbed the rubber off the back tire. I am in the process of ordering new tires so I will be out of commission for the next week. That's ok though. I need to look for employment.

You guys go and play. I'll be watching. :eek:

Post by: sleazy rider on July 26, 2009, 09:17:11 am
I just ordered new tires to replace the TKCs.  6000+ miles on 'em so far and this run up north should kill 'em off.  Between moving to the new store last Monday and having a whacked out work schedule with the transfer, I haven't had a day off until yesterday and it rained.  It's about damn time to get some non-commuting miles.  I'm getting fidgety.   :lol:

OTOH, I may be documenting an epic dirt ride from Baja come late January.   ;)  I'm waiting on a friend to tell me if he's interested or not.

Bike's loaded for camping, only 9 hours of work between me and the road.   :bigok:  Heading north at 3PM, look for the yellow blur headed up 75/10/115.

Sorry to hear about the bike.  You probably overfilled it and saturated the EPA air canister.  I've done it before too.  As soon as it dries out, the bike runs like nothing ever happened.

Now that I look at 'em again, they are too small for reindeer.  What are they ?   :shrug: They look like your average four legged corn carp with a big set of antlers.


You probably overfilled it and saturated the EPA air canister.  I've done it before too.  As soon as it dries out, the bike runs like nothing ever happened.


I found some info on that over in the ADVRider GSpot. That must be one of the reasons why cannister removal is so popular.

"ya you only see reindeer at christmas"

MXVET57, not true either!! I spent 7 weeks in Sweden ( above the artic circle, Kiruna), two different WINTERS! I also saw a roundup of around 70,000 reindeer when they moved the herd from one area to another. Laps actually stay with the "small" herds all year long.
( Like sheep herders )

The trucks up there ( tractor and sometimes three trailers ) have "ROO" bars. The Laplanders use to placeblack garbage bags on poles beside the roads to make the trucker think they were reindeer and SLOW DOWN. What really happened was the trucks picked them off like racoons around here! Reindeer cost $1000 a pop to your insurance should you hit one! ( And they weight around 700 lbs.)

Also after seven weeks and no SUN, some of themstart looking "CUTE".

It is a seven hour round trip so it will be hard for me to get it during the week.  But hey you never know.  I do know where it is and well you never know when I might get on the bike and ride a couple hundred miles.  hehehehe.

I am already working on 8,000 miles this year.  I often wonder how many miles I have put on photo tagging.

I drove by this Sunday. We were taking the scenic route back from Mac City. If I had known, I could have tagged it before Tom posted it.  

Only problem? I was in my cage  :headscratch: with my Child Bride and my Grand-daughters.

400 miles Sun - 150 miles yesterday - Zee called this morning and asked if I wanted to make a run. My keeper said HELL NO!  :nono: I have been avoiding the list for too many days and she would prefer that I make some progress on it. :( :deadhorse: :baldy:

That is the easiest one on the planet.  I could have tagged it today, since I was only 20 minutes away from there.  Did you know there is a geocache hidden in the bushes there?


Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: sleazy rider on July 30, 2009, 10:21:04 pm
Yeah, but you *live* near there.  :blbl:  All the times I've been thru that town, I honestly never saw it.  When I was cruising the web and Mapsource looking for odd sites up north, it came up on the Roadside America pages.  There was another one I'm saving for next time that's a wee bit harder to locate.

And no, I don't geocache, as I've enough addictions to keep me going for now.  ;)

Crud.  I forgot, the tires are due changing.  They're ok for local, but the rear's really squared off for highway use and the front's cupped out bad.  Got the new rear sitting in the garage and the front's coming from SWMoto tomorrow.  I took the XR to work yesterday.

I have stayed at the indicated campground. It is not a bad place but bring your own water! :hurl:

I had an idea for a tag, but try as I might I could not get a picture with the bike in it. I will have to give it some more thought.

I assume that means y'all ready for a hint.
The building in the background, looking over top of the yellow bug, is a place people go to die. Not a hospital but a hos_ _ _ _.
Also, unbeknown to me when I planted the tag, this was MAXMAN's backyard when he was a tiny little boy.

Here is where it was located.

I'm in the midst of heavy duty bike prep for some LD playtime.  The GS just decided it's tail light was going to quit on me.  I've chased wires looking for breaks and no joy.  Swapped the LED panel for a bulb and same story.  The brake light works, but the running light is out.   :headscratch:  Maybe I'll try another bulb?  I'd hate to have to use the dealer for service on this crap.

Great ride Clay! Nice weather, good roads, awesome breakfast, and got in 200 miles all before lunch! Now I can get around and do those chores....


On the way back I saw a silver BMW GS bike at the Subway in Hamilton. Was it anyone from here?

I forgot to mention. Clay and I actually passed a guy riding a Polaris XCR snowmobile on I96. I couldn't believe what I saw at first. It looked like one of those Can-Am Spyders from far away but once we passed...whoa! Very cool. It was an actual sled. The front skis were replaced with wheels and the rear track was replaced with a belt driven wheel. Couldn't get pics unfortunately.

Yes- that was awesome.  I think it was white.  Imagine a snowmobile with wheels for skis and a belt drive wheel.  It was crazy- he was cruising right along around 70.  Quite a piece of engineering.

A great ride- the weather was perfect- nice ride down Lakeshore drive as well.  It was a great ride again Ryan- I hope your ride home was good as well.

So I am wondering how many tags in Michigan now? I was going to count but I would be up all night waiting for the pages to load with my internet speed.  :crazy:

So I got the new tag.  I did some great dirt/fire road riding on the XR to get to and from this location, but it's a wonderful, paved ride if you choose.  I also found out long saddle time on the XR isn't at all as comfy as the Bandit.  :crazy:  A few great roads in the area, including the one this dam thing is found on.  If you need hints, let me know, cause I think it might be a tough one.

I rode on my State Game area near Allegan- lots of two-tracks- and I need a new rear tire soon!  It's a dam on a creek.

If you need more, let me know!  I don't mean to make it into a guessing game (that's not the point), but with this clue you should be able to find it.

Post by: Poweranger on August 29, 2009, 07:10:55 pm
Here is another shot of CLAYS tag on Monroe/118th av. in Allegan. It is on the Swan Creek. With Clays clues in his post I took a glance at the map and looked for a reservoir on a creek. I found Swan pond and figured that as the only possible location for a dam on a creek in the Allegan State Game area. And I lucked out. Considering the weather and light rain I was riding in I was glad I found it.


I couldn't quit get the same shot as Clay. Maybe he was on the other side?

(http://i363.photobucket.com/albums/oo72/Poweranger101/IMG_2594.jpg)

I also spotted this along the way! With some offroad tires it would make a great DS bike to cruise around on up north.

(http://i363.photobucket.com/albums/oo72/Poweranger101/IMG_2590.jpg)

And what you are all waiting for. Here is the new tag. This was my wifes idea after she saw the bridge in Clays tag.

(http://i363.photobucket.com/albums/oo72/Poweranger101/IMG_2600.jpg)

And this is a BONUS TAG. It is in the town where I grew up. Seven miles from the tag.

It wasn't that far- plus on the XR  guess I thought I was a little "off road" worthy myself.  :lol:

Um..no, tag is open until the first person who posts it up gets it. I was just putting a warning down lol. If you go back and read posts from previous tags, there were times when three or four people hit the same tag all within a span of 10 or 20 minutes. I was just taunting and raving, that's all.

So I am cruising to the next tag and low and behold wibornz is next to me.  I am thinking man how did he find me way up by Ludington?  So I pull over and find out that he was just minutes behind me in getting to the caboose and posting to the web.  It was a good thing I took my daughter's laptop with me to post, or wibornz would have beat me to posting the tag to the web.  So after a quick chat, we team up and head out to my planned tag.  Ride ride ride ride ride, get gas, ride ride ride ride ride,take a quick break, ride ride ride

This is the tag

(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/08-31-09_1944.jpg)
It is a corner of an old factory with a dam in the background.
maybe a little closer
(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/08-31-09_1946.jpg)

We moved to the other side of the building to give you a clue to help you locate it.

(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/08-31-09_1952.jpg)

So fire up google earth There can only be so many old defunct factories on a river by a dam.

Well after doing some searching, I finally located the three windowed red caboose in Manistee.  I decided last minute to make the run.  Sorry for not calling pops66 or G.  Off I go.  I am thinking fly up and back no problem.  It's Monday nobody will be out phototagging.  Get to Manistee take the pic ride off and go to the same shop me an pops66 went to when we tag the ship in Manistee back in the early summer.  Log on and what the #@[email protected]# someone beat me to the tag.  Owait it's G.  Hey he posted just a couple minutes ago.  He must be on his way back home.  On the bike I go.  I put the heat to the C14 and catch him by Ludington.  G. pulls over so that I can curse at him in a formal face to face kinda way.   He's like what are you doing up here? I thought you were hanging out with your wife today?  So I explain that the wife cut me loose because she had some canning she wanted to get done, and that was all I needed to get me out of the house for some phototagging.  Ie the quick exit to go riding.... Didn't want her to have the oppurtunity to change her mind.  

Well good luck on finding the tag that G took me to.  It will be a hard one.  The worst thing is that there were no real good hint pics to take.  There were no street signs, so real name on the buildings, just an old run down complex on a river with a dam by it.

Did about 450 miles and got home with terrible headache...... Off to take some asprin and hit the bed.

Yea and riding all over the place.  I will have 24,000 miles on the c14 by the end of the week if all goes as planned.  The only issues that I have had with the bike is warped front rotors, and they have been taken care of under warranty.  The bike has been super reliable considering that I ride in all weather and all temperatures.

Ok, so since I have not tagged any pictures, I went ahead and counted all of the pictures and wrote who tagged them when and what they were. The current picture with the "factory with a dam" is #107. I put it in a simple Excell file, anyone want it, I will share it.

It looks like wilbornz (including the group tags) is winning with 13!

I got you with ten tags, not sure what place that puts you. Closer to 3rd it looks. I will have to look into it.

Wow you even tracked how many by each member!  GREAT WORK ApriIla. I made it to page 3 and figured out with my slow speed dsl it would take hours to go through all the pages. 107 tags is impressive since this is only a year old now and our riding season being much shorter than the Bay area.

you were on the right track with the grand just keep serching 50 threw 99 times :lamer:


The Grand, that's all we needed.  :thumbsup: I can't stand waiting or searching more than 15 minutes to find a tag.... :crazy: I want to ride.

Amazed that I used to drive by this once a month for my meetings at Darbs and didn't recognize it.

I am heading towards the UP Thursday and have some tags in mind......

I'm figuring I've got 5-6 tags.  I need to get more active with this stuff.  Maybe when I get back from vacation in October.

Hey next week I will be at Marquette Prison to conduct some training.  I have thought about doing a tag in the UP, the only problem is that most of the active players are in the southern part of the LP.  So going to get a tag that is even in the upper part of the LP requires an all day ride.  Just to go to the tag in Manistee and to the next tag was 450 miles.  Can you say just over two tanks of gas and a lunch to get the tag.  

I just have to wonder how many would put 1000 miles on to go get a tag?  It may slow the game way down.  It should be obvious that I like to ride.  Phototagging give purpose to a ride.  It sends one to destinations that you may have never traveled to and adds a little competition to it.  


Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: wibornz on September 02, 2009, 08:14:01 am
O yea send me the excel file.  I had already planned on figuring out how many tags I got, how many miles I rode to tag, and how much I spent out tagging.

Hey Aprilla- I was struck by inspiration (can you smell the smoke?): Would it work for you to post the stats to a google excel sheet like David LSI did with the mileage tracking?  I could modify and put the link in the first post of the phototag string and you could update the sheet when you felt motivated.  Just a thought- I don't want to make extra work for you.  It would just be fun to see the stats.  Like PowerRanger said- I'm amazed at how many we have, given our shorter riding season...

Sorry about the wait in advance. It may be late this evening before the next tag is up. Heading north with 6 days vacation! Will have to do some offroading with the Sprint this evening so it will be an interesting day.

Oh, and I now have the capability to access the net on the laptop with the cell. It only took a few minutes to download the program from Verizon this morning. Why didn't I do this a long time ago?  :crazy:

Krellian and I were just up in the UP in Marquette yesterday only to ride back down the next day. We'd huff out the 1000 miles  :lol: We actually thought about grabbing the tag, and tagging something while up there, but since we were nursing a sick bike home we didn't want to stop =( a normal 8 hour 450 mile ride took us about 15 hours, and we still haven't gotten the poor thing home.

1980 Honda CX500 Custom. We stored it at my mother's house last winter and let her ride it for the summer, but it has a few problems (like not being able to go over 45mph or holding a charge). It's a sweet bike  :inlove:

I agree Wibornz, tags way up in the UP are gonna stall the game. But you guys around the Lansing and Saginaw areas should be able to hit this and back in a day? I mean we do have Iron Butt riders here don't we?

So here is the next one. I am riding back to a bonus tag later tonight. I will post the Bonus and if this tag stalls the game then hit the bonus tag as the main tag and this one as the bonus...But it needed to come up here sooner or later! The bridge walk is Monday you know!

(http://i363.photobucket.com/albums/oo72/Poweranger101/IMG_2610.jpg)

Here is a hint pic to help figure out the exact location of where my pic was taken. Not that it is very hard to figure out.

I would think so.  But Clay started the game so maybe he should make the call.  The only reason that I have not posted a tag of the bridge is because I figured that just about anybody that has rode their bike to the bridge, they have probably taken a pic of the bridge with their bike.  Guess I figured right.  I have just about the same identical pic.  I do have some of G riding no handed on the bridge.  :) :) :)

Sorry you have to ride another 450 miles to bring the tag back towards home.  :rolleyes:

BTY it was my first time over the bridge on 2 wheels today......So now I have pic like eveyone else.....

So since everyone has already been to the bridge and already has a pic of the bridge with their bike you can tag this or CALL OPEN TAG and let pops66 have his tag he went after this morning. I do not care. You make the call Wibornz. I am up North and enjoying the riding!  :)

I doubt hints would be needed for this....

Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: CLAY on September 03, 2009, 07:46:03 pm
I think for it to work, you have to go get it after it's posted.  As it has been pointed out, many of us have one of these:
(http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l58/clay_lubbers/Bike%20Trip-%20June%2007/Goldwing078.jpg)

But the tag would only be any good if someone went up after Power Ranger did and snagged the pic fresh.  If we didn't do it that way I could post my old pic of the tag, post another old pic, and hypothetically make a tag without ever leaving my house.  The spirit of the game, IMO, is to go get the tag, then tag something else.  Or tag something else on your way to get the tag.  

The idea is to RIDE!  So someone go up there and get that thing!   :bigok:  

If it gets stuck I have no problem with a different tag, if Power Ranger wants to.  It is a good haul for those of us that play, but maybe Forester could scoot up there and get it.   Man, that would have been a great tag in June, but I'm short of time with school starting next week...

Forget the bridge. Everyone has been there. And the last thing I want is to have this stalled. I can't even stand searching for more than 15 minutes to figure out a tag! I like to be out riding. So the beer bottle IS NOW THE TAG. If someone can not get up here in a few days and get that then start back at the dam in Eaton Rapids again. Or start a new one. Like I said it makes no difference to me. I just had fun riding and doing this today.  :D

The tag at the steak place should be double in a day ride for you middle and east siders though. I started out in Kazoo at 830, hit the tag in Eaton Rapids, grabbed quick b-fast, went to the bridge and was back eating dinner at the steak place before 5pm. I could have easily ridden back to Kazoo tonight. Well not easily but could have.  :lol: I am learning that there a few things I still need to do to the bike before I do an Iron Butt ride.

Oh and I think pops66 put a curse on my bladder today for beating him to the tag. I couldn't make it past 2 rest stops in a row! :baldy:

It was suggested that I put in some rules, so I modified the first page with them.  I think they are basically just what we have been doing- I just thought it'd be good to get them down for new people that want to play.  I think they make sense, but look 'em over for errors or problems.   :cool:

Well, if she wasn't my granddaughter  :inlove: and I was 54 years younger, she would still be way out of my league. :lol: :crazy:

However, she is cute. Takes after her Grandmother (personal opinion). Yup, I am mostly retired & I would love to make the run again. When I mentioned it to my vacation planner,  :angry3: She said IT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN.  :firedevil: So, I suggested putting the bully on pinion in the cage and just taking a short hop from the lake - she hasn't talked to me since. :mad2:

Wilbornz,
You are driving all over the place with these tags.  How many miles do you have on the C-14 now?  Any issues?

(sorry for the sidetrack)....


You should buy one Don. Dibs on your 08 :inlove:

BTW 42,000 and counting on your old 04.

Also sorry for the sidetrack. Back to tagging.

I'm betting if you tagged the bridge, it would be totally acceptable.  On the way back, grab a shot of the beer bottle, as you'll go right past it.   :augie:

  The tag is the bottle per PowerRanger's post, but I think if you made thebridge that would work too, since you pass the bottle on the way.  


Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: Poweranger on September 04, 2009, 08:02:49 pm
I was saying the bottle just to keep everyone happy. If someone wants to get the bridge then go for hit. Like Clay said the bottle is on the way. Hint-If you slab it up to the bridge and miss the bottle you might want to go see the optometrist!

But the bottle is THE TAG. The bridge is the BONUS for the real riders that can make the extra 100 mile round trip from the bottle...

Too much to do today getting ready, but I thought about going up for it for a minute or two.   :naughty:  The day was too gorgeous and bright to just work in the garage loading luggage and tweaking the electronics.

I know the "Beer Bottle" is the new tag, but here is a different perspective for you pussies for the bridge.

Look Mom, one hand.

You're nuts Doogman. Although, they have the ungrated side closed for construction making bridge crossing a whole lot more interesting  :crazy: Who needs to go one handed with all of that?

 :lol: I know the feeling. On the way north both lanes were open. I did notice though that the southbound outside lane was closed coming south. I was thinking, Oh shit this is gonna be fun on the way back. The only grated bridge I have been across is the short one in Allegan. It wasn't that bad though on the grating coming south. The freaking 40 degree drop in temp was worse than the weave on the grating. It was amazing though. I have been over that thing  100 times in the car and never realized how much cooler it was over the water. (Not that is has been that hot this summer). Some things you will never experience when in the cage...

I still need practice on the one handed camera shooting Doogman....Actually, I want a cheaper camera before I start "practicing".

And for all you guys with the bike pics at the bridge. How many of ya have one of these? I have ridden the whole length UNDER the bridge also!

(http://i363.photobucket.com/albums/oo72/Poweranger101/RyanonSPX.jpg)

NOW LETS GET BACK TO THE TAGGING! Someone get a new tag that I can try to get on the way home!

There is a couple ways to cross the big bridge!!!

One handed taking a pic of your son riding behind you in your rearview mirror while the bridge walk is going on while on the move

(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/LAKESUPERIOUR8-2008110.jpg)

or one handed pic taking of G riding no handed on the bridge under the security camera

(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/geoffnohands.jpg)

I would like to get a picture of doing a wheelie on the bridge, but Pollux said there are many cameras and stunting is not good on the Mac.... Pollux said it gets law enforcement panties in a bunch.

And of course big sky on the bridge.

Okay, this may be too obscure or maybe not have enough clues to its location....I waited for the perfect moment to snap the pic to give you as many hints as possible.  If this one won't work, I have an alternate that I would have to ride to tomorrow.

If that is a late afternoon shadow, the picture is looking south. Two freighters that close to shore would suggest a narrow passage.
Not too many places in the Great Lakes that fit that description.... :headscratch:

You are on the right track!  It will be a bit of a ride for you southerners, my first choice was even further and.....well...more clues later.

First off.... :twofinger:

second....... :twofinger:

ok now that is out of my system......


It looks like whoever is going after this one is going to cross the bridge also, If my memory serves me well this somewhat foggy morning...

You have a nice pic here from the Soo. If I remember correctly, go into the Soo go to the Corp of Engineers building, turn right, and these will be on your left about 3/4 mile down. If you get to the water works you've gone too far.


But then again, it is a foggy morning......

It is a narrow passage where the freighters go through, and there is a ferry crossing near there.

The bad thing is that I called the mill to verify that I was looking at the correct location.  The owner did not know that there was a big black pipe thing with a red shaft and pully in her parking lot.  She also did not know that the building across the street from her that she owns is a block concrete building with white windows and a door in it.  She did know that there was a shed in the back with a shelve on it.  So we get there and I say I can't believe the owner does not know what is in her parking lot.  Well she happened to be outside and heard me.  She came out to talk to me and G had to smooth her over, because I had to bite my lip so that I would not say something out of character for me.

I would suggest an early morning ride in before the locals wake up!  And be gone by noon.  Spend some time at the location.  It is very cool.

I'll have to make a day of it on the XR, as I killed the GS today at the car wash.   :firedevil:  It was too wet to start, so I had the boy bring the truck up and we hauled it home.  I *was* headed over to look at another bike this evening, a ZX-10R for playtime.  Maybe it just knew?

Here's some info for any history nerds like me.  I had a few minutes so I googled it- not a whole lot, but at least I now know what the kiln was for:
http://www.eatoncounty.org/Departments/Eaton_County_Parks___Recreation/County_Parks/Dyer_Kiln_Park.htm
From the website:
DYER KILN PARK
8610 Sand Rd.
Bellevue, MI 49021

 
This quaint half-acre historic site was purchased in l975 by the Parks Commission and developed by the Bellevue community as a bi-centennial project.  This kiln, one of the first limestone kilns in the County, was used for burning limestone in the preparation of cement in the late l9th century.

The tunnels of that place scare the crap out of me, I have been all through that place, the feelings that come around are just about the most evil I have ever felt.

shudders.

I know that place well. Go right next to it when I head north on the rails. I need the tour of the tunnels though!

Yeah... We kind of figured that a pic of water/coast in Michigan is a big order. So... we got a close up of the memorial for you. :)

Heh, I had a thought that's what I was seeing, but I couldn't remember the name.  Worked out of Selfridge for 16 years and used to go out from there for ice fishing.  Maybe I can sneak off on Thursday, weather permitting.

After Tom's hint and working my googlefu and google earth fu I found it.  That's an unusual pedestrian dock- we don't have many of them up here, though they are common on the ocean.  Looks like a cool spot!  Unfortunately given the move and work to be done, that distance is out for me as well.   :crazy:

Nope, with great age comes great wisdom, grasshoppa.  I'd rather plug the Gerbings in and stay toasty over riding a bike with no wind protection and freezing for 30 miles each way on my commute.  I did that type of riding for too many years and now my hands suffer badly when it gets cold.  I'll take the wuss route and be comfortable now.

I so want to get this. One, I know where it is and it is fairly close to home. Two, my riding season this year has sucked. But with closing on the new house this past tuesday, I have a lot on my plate right now. I did manage to get a powerlet outlet for my gerbings installed on my Massey TO35 for plowing the drive this winter, if that counts toward riding.  :lol:  Hopefully I'll be back in the game next season.  :thumbsup:

Yep, its the old Penetentiary in Jackson. After the "new" Prison was built out on Cooper St, the old was turned in to an Armory for the National Guard. Now its a community for artists. Yea, thats an interesting conversation to have.

The buildings are in pretty good shape, with alot of history. I was in the tunnels and outter buildings before is went to the artists. I have to say it was the scariest place I have ever been in....

In the tunnels, with a hand held spot light, the light would only go about 25 ft. then it just went away. Shadows, sounds, voices and screams....makes the Ghost Hunters seem like a bunch of wooses...

Ok happy place.....nice thoughts.... ahh better..

Go ahead and come at me with the town torches and pitch forks. It's an easy one, and after looking through 30 pages of our tags, I couldn't see if anybody else had previously tagged this. Enjoy!

Was it there for the air show, EM?  I've never seen one live and in person, but it's gotta be huge.  It pretty much dwarfs a C-5 and that pup ain't small.  That first pic is the Russian heavy lifter, I think.  It's been a long time since I've played tire kicker and fire lighter on the big concrete slab out there, but I remember the AF landing a BUFF for a static display back in the '80s at Selfridge.

I worked on the electric lawn darts for the 191st back when their jets only held one person.   :naughty:  I hear they're getting flying gas stations when the 130s go away.

Tom,

No, it was just in the past couple of weeks.  The birds in the other pictures are what I remember coming into Iraq from other areas in the middle east, I think operated by Israeli & Russian civilian flight crews.

The other bird was a C17, which is actually smaller than a C5.  The C5 opens at both ends, C17 only the tail opens (ramps), but it is the Air Force's workhorse now, I believe.  I think because it is a little smaller than the C5 it can get into more airbases in theater than the C5.  I rode to and from Iraq in one, very smooth.

I'm stationed on Selfridge; I'm part of the active duty staff that runs the Marine Reserve infantry battalion HQ there; So I get to hear that noise everyday.  One of my favorite quotes about living close to an airbase (it's on the front gate of Marine Corps Airstation, Beaufort, SC):

That noise you hear is the sound of freedom...

no, you didn't want to go. I think I lowered my body temp by about 2 degrees from this ride  :crazy: and found out my gloves work worth crap. Thanks again Pop for lending me yours for a while  :bigok:.

I found out that I now want Wibornz C-14, with all the Farkles.
Can I have one Please?

Post by: wibornz on October 14, 2009, 06:28:43 pm
Ok so Pops66 drags me out of the house to ride in the rain.  I have been sick with the flu and just started feeling better, but hey what doesn't kill you just makes you stronger right.  

So out to the bike and off we go to Ypisy.  We get a couple miles from the house, and the road is blocked off at the bridge over the river.  That's ok detour about 15 miles out of the way.  The low transponder battery warning is flashing on the bike.  Must stop to get a battery.  The bike will not work with a dead fob.  Then finely off to Ypisy.

We get about 20 miles from the water tower and it starts to rain.  Just a slow drizzle.  You know the kind that just makes you cold and damp.  So we meet up with Squijummonkey  and Krellian and off to the tower.  We are not sure which is the official tag so we tag the water tower first.

(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/10-14-09_1348.jpg)

Then head off to Town and Country to get the fire truck

(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/10-14-09_1453.jpg)

that way we have both tags and me and Pops66 are covered.  Now remember that it is in the low 40s and raining. Squijummonkey is wearing mess gloves. She is cold by the time we make to the fire truck.  Pops66 saves the day with extra gloves.  We do a quick walk through and look at the new bikes and get some warm back into us and we are off to the new tag.


This may or may not be an easy tag.

(http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm7/wibornz/10-14-09_1545.jpg)

I have a couple hint pics if you need them.  


Not a bad day 200 mile day. Hats off to Krellian  and Squijummonkey .  I'm not so sure that I would have left to go taggin if it was already raining like it was when we got to their house.  They are just like a 25 cent steak....TOUGH!  


Title: Re: MI phototag- game on!
Post by: Squijummonkey on October 14, 2009, 06:42:59 pm
*insert dirty joke about steaks here because I'm too lazy to do it myself right now* I don't know if we're tough, or stupid, but it was a fun ride! Thank You to you both for having us along  :inlove:

Post by: DeansZG on October 14, 2009, 07:06:40 pm

So out to the bike and off we go to Ypisy.  


BTW, it's pronounced; Ipsy.. the y is silent..... :lol:
Glad you all got some miles in. You should have grabbed a bowl of chili at the Artesian Wells next to T&C to warm up a bit for the ride home....

I took off at 11:00 am this morning and just got in.  Put on almost 300 miles.  Then I am off to work in a hour or so to put on another 80.  I am thinking that I may need a new rear tire once again.   :D

Well the tag is easy for you to get to.  Turn left out of your drive, go to the first main road and turn right. Ride 127.9 miles  that should do it.

For those of you that I do not know where you live, It is in a town by the boarder that has the same name of a famous motorcycle destination.

ok, 360 miles round trip on a shot in the dark hunch paid off for us today.  Good thing, too, because I don't think Tom would continue to ride with me if we'd rode that far to end up empty handed!!  Heated gear just got bumped up a notch on my to do list for the bike...

Ok, here we go, new TAG.  

Some may recognize this place right away, might be harder to pin point if you've never heard of it before.  Either way, I have some hints to keep things moving if needed...

WEll I am out on this one.  300 miles round trip and not a fun route to be had to get there from my place.  So some of you east side riders fire up that bike and get that tag.  If it sits to long I might just say f it.  Pops66 fire up your bully its time to ride.  I will not be getting my bike back from the shop until friday.  New tires, new battery, new tire pressure sensor.

I could always take the KLR or the Versys!!!!!!!

Got it!

It's the "Swinging Bridge" in Croswell:

(http://www.uselesspickles.com/files/pictures/photo_tag/swinging_bridge.jpg)

Wayne, you are bad. I didn't realize you rode your bike on the walking paths to get your picture. This side of the bridge isn't so bad, but there was no road/parking lot within sight of the other side. I saw there was a plaque with info as I was riding away, so I didn't get a picture of it. I'll let Wayne give the history lesson, but maybe I'll post a couple more pics later... and a video of me walking across it (that was fun!).


So here's the next target. I'll give it a day or so without any unsolicited clues.

Alright, we have a winner  :thumbsup:

From http://www.michigan.org/Property/Detail.aspx?p=B14410:

The Swinging Bridge in Croswell, MI.  The Croswell Swinging Bridge is the only pedestrian suspension bridge in Michigan. It was built in 1905 at an original cost of $300. It spans 139 feet. The original bridge had just two cables which were provided by Michigan Sugar Company and were used to support the planks. To provide a handhold, two more cables were added at a cost of $150. In August of 2006, all 128 planks were replaced at a cost of $1,300. The Bridge originally had a sign at the west end that admonished people to "Love Ye One Another." A sign at the east entrance (Maple Street) still reads, "Be Good To Your Mother-in-law." A festival to celebrate the bridge takes place the second weekend of August each year and features cardboard boat races under the bridge.

I found the new tag.  Now if I'd not been up lowering the forest rat population today I could have gotten it...

Are you suggesting that the rules be changed for this particular photo? I understood the rules of this thread (MI phototag) to require that the same exact location be visited, so we need to find that exact same dealership/Spyder.

The water truck was the easy find off I-96.

The Can Am RT is at a dealer so it should be an easy find.  It is at my favorite place.  Stephanie in parts rock, Nic in service is cool.  He crashed his R1 on the track at over 100 mph and walked away.  Joe Nova in sales is crazy.  Great bunch if you ask me.

The folks at Groves Motorsports in Mason were great, even going as far as backing out a regular Can-Am so we could get the money shot.  ;) 

New tag, thanks to Bender's scouting yesterday.

Got it!

(http://www.uselesspickles.com/files/pictures/photo_tag/corunna_church.jpg)

It's the church in the "Corunna Historical Village of Shiawassee County (http://www.shianet.org/community/tour/crna_hist_village/)"

I actually figured it out before the most recent clue. I just had to scan through about 15 pages of google image results for "michigan historic church". That's extrememarine's bike in there too (thanks for joining me). We have two potential candidates for the next location already photographed. I just need to decide whether to use one of them, or to run out to a different place tomorrow.

The wife helped me decide on the next location. It's probably the easier of the two options I had, but it's also much cooler:

(http://www.uselesspickles.com/files/pictures/photo_tag/mystery_house.jpg)

extrememarine was there too. His bike just didn't fit in with the way I wanted to frame the scene (or maybe his ugly bike would've been a blemish on an otherwise beautiful photo :twofinger:).

(http://www.deedler.com/Tags/Tag4.jpg)

Oh... After that tag I started to head toward another tag... and came across a deer in the road at around 60MPH... I hit the brakes (ABS went off like crazy) zigged, the deer zig zagged, zigged and boom...  :eek: :crazy: I hit the ass end of the deer doing about 15mph. Knocked the thing spinning in the ditch. The deer did a tuck and roll and took off running. The bike stayed straight up and didn't waver at all on impact. I pulled over and found that there was NO damage to the bike.  :thumbsup: Then changed my mind about going for the next take tonight. Thinking someone was looking out for me :pope:

I'll tell you that I was pretty wound up after the smack. I told my wife to keep her phone close by in case I got too cold and needed her to come get me. She laughed it off and didn't... I made sure to wake her up when I got home at 12:30 am.


Wow  :eek:

I was puckered so much nothing was getting out of there.

After the smack and realizing what I just got through without so much as a scratch on the fender, I laughed it off for about 45 minutes on the phone with my sister on the way home.

I HIT A DEER! I still can't believe it.

 * TRY TO PICK INTERESTING TAG LOCATIONS. Pick spots that are fun to get to, have some historical interest, weird/zany, whatever, but consider what clues will be needed to find it. If you make it too obscure, the game stalls. Better to keep the tag moving than having people searching for a tree in the forest

Ya know G, I will say you can. If the others are agreeable with it. You have been here long enough..and with your leg being monkied up, I dont mind.

I submit for the others to agree with, that if someone is unable to get a tag with a bike, that is is occasional ok to get it in a cage.

Open for discussion?

I hate to be the stick-in-the-mud, but I think it's really meant for bikes.  I know this isn't the case *now*, but I'd hate for it to become a cage tag in the winter months, or when someone sells their bike, etc etc.  It's just a box I'd hate to open...

Ok I know were it is.  It's 84 miles away and the weather is shit.  There is not a good day forcasted for the week.  The bike is full of gas, and I am ready.  Just need a clear road.

Gee thanks Krell  ;)

actually the only time that rain bothers me is Dec to Mar. You see - mIchigan has hard water (all that iron & such) and when it hits the road during this time, it turns to ICE  :crazy:

Man I love reading this thread. I'm too far away to play (I now live in Grand Rapids) but I recognize some of the spots. Heck I even lived in the apartments with the lighthouse for a while.

maybe this spring I'll head that way again and get in the game.

I'm too much of a sissy to ride now.  :lol:   my bike is all warm and cozy in 60 degree storage for the winter. (but then again I don't have any warm gear to ride in because I am to poor to buy it)

my bike is in pieces SWEET! went to do an oil change and put it away for the winter, try to fire it up and a no go. After first thinking it was the power commander and 2 days trying to figure out the issue, there is a short in the wire harness from the ignition back to the main harness!  :bigok: sweet nothing i own runs! Maybe over xmas break with no school i can get one up and running. This has been a stupid year for cars and motorcycles for me.

Do it!  The XR is snow ready!

Delta One:  I'm in GR too- North of Byron Center, just off M6 and Byron Center Ave to be more precise.  Where are you?  It gets out to this side of the state as well.  The weather (and hunting season for me) has kept it east for awhile now...

Wow Mr deed, You are the bomdiggity of STNers. You would do that for us?  :bigok:

Well if you insist - Somewhere close to the South side of Lansing would be terrific. There is a nice place just between Holt & Mason. Right on Cedar St so the snow won't be a bother. You know, I don't mind rough conditions, but, I try to look out for the other riders in the area. We must stick together for the good of all. :thumbsup:

That is so cool  :bigok:

Keep your kids close and they will grow to love the sport along with you. When they get older it is one of the best feelings just riding with  them. I am able to ride with my daughter and her husband (Wibornz & Just Carla) and my grandsons (killerkatanaNTS & Zee). It is a great feeling when it all comes together.   :beerchug: :banana: :chili:

I'll be riding next week.  Not here, but in Dallas for the day.  I rented an ST1300 for next Friday from www.sportryderrentals.com.   :chili:  They only allow 250 miles free per 24 hours, then 20 cents per mile after.  I figure I'm going to spend an extra $50 or so on this rental for mileage.   :naughty:

 :headscratch: Gee whiz, starting to think this is just a "FJR" phototag or "East Coast of Michigan" phototag.  Some people are serious about the term "seasonal" and riding up here, aren't they?   :flush:  :popcorn:

Here's one benefit of having the handicap :gerg: version of the FJR; you don't have to worry 'bout the clutch when your fingers go numb...

I have been riding my butt off lately, but hey I can't think of any time that I would willingly ride to a christmas store let alone two hundred miles in the cold.  Nothing there for me to see.  Might as well have the old lady drag me to the mall on Saturday.  Was gearing up for the plane.  Found it was going to get it today, and found out I was to late.  

So the next tag is in a parking lot..  :crazy:  Yea that will be fun to ride to.  

How about someone go tag this and put it some where interesting.

1039 South Rochester Road
Rochester Hills, MI 48307-3115

Mind you there is nothing wrong with tagging a business, but remember your audiance.  Would you ride two three or four hundred miles to tag a christmas store that there is no way you would ever go to with out your wife dragging you there without the promise of  :naughty: :naughty: or to some business parking lot.

Remeber this rule from the rules on page #1 to keep the game going.

* TRY TO PICK INTERESTING TAG LOCATIONS. Pick spots that are fun to get to, have some historical interest, weird/zany, whatever, but consider what clues will be needed to find it. If you make it too obscure, the game stalls. Better to keep the tag moving than having people searching for a tree in the forest

Sorry for bitching, but I know there are better tags in south east michigan than what you guys are posting.

Would you ride two hundred miles to tag a parking lot that has no value as a place to visit.  I am sure that you're going to say man what a great ride to a parking lot.  I am just saying the game stalls.  Put some thought in to it.  Don't just stop and snap a photo, put some though into it.  I know that there are great places in south east Michigan.

Don't get mad and stop playing, just think to your self and ask this question.  If someone took that same picture in Muskegon of a parking lot at a seeing eye dog training center in the middle of the city, are you going to ride all the way up there?  NO you're not.  Don't say you will.  

The game stalled.  Nobody wanted to tag it.  

Now use some of that anger to keep warm and get out and ride, and don't take it personal. If you want someone to ride half way across the state, it has to be something fun to do.

  * The new tag must be posted within 24 hours of grabbing the old one. After 24 hours the previous tag is up for grabs again

Not sure how many miles you put on your bike this winter but, I know I've had to refill my tank a couple times. Getting out and getting something up in 24 hours is pretty hairy at times. Sorry but yes... you pissed me off with your post. At least we are getting out. if you want to sit on your chair and complain, please don't. If you don't want tag it then DON'T.

When I get the time I'll post something on the other side of the state... but for now, I'm not going to risk my ass too much but I will enjoy the GAME!

Cabin fever is ragin’ strong amongst some…

I’m relatively new here (Region 4) and to this phototag thing, but I’ll toss my .02 out there anyways…


Sorry for bitching, but I know there are better tags in south east michigan than what you guys are posting.


Sure, maybe there are.  But it is Michigan, it is January.  Certain things like snow, ice, cold might just keep some riders closer to the barn than others…

In the spirit of rules, I chose the Selfridge Air Museum under the guise of “have some historical interest”.  32 static aircraft displays spanning from WWII through Desert Storm, plus indoor displays from WWI, WWII, Korean, Vietnam, Desert Storm, & OIF.  It is not the Smithsonian, but it is in Michigan, it is of historical significance, even if Military Aircraft is not your cup of tea.

In the spirit of the rules & game, I’ve even gone as far as digging through all 1800+ posts here to log all 136 tags in an effort to avoid double tags and to see that others have put up as historical, weird/zany, etc. places to ride as a means to ride within the spirit of the game.  Overkill, maybe, or just a creative way to kill a snowy Sunday afternoon…  

In the spirit of the game, there have been some really creative tags and some not so much IMHO.  But isn’t it about the ride?  Or is that not something that rings true up here?  I’ve been spoiled the past few years being stationed in SC.  We rode all the time, lots of times for nothing more than to ride.  Some of the best rides we ever had started out as a “lets see what’s down that road.”  Favorite loops that we’d traveled many times, with no specific destination in mind are filed in that category.  We were hours from some of the best motorcycle roads on the east coast (N. GA / W. NC); I miss those weekends.  But this phototag has added new spice to the ride for me, a purpose, a goal, or just something to take the edge off these ever straight roads up here (the I-94 cloverleaf or a rural road lined with driveways that’s curvy do not count as “twisties”).  

So, are less interesting tags in an effort to keep the post moving during the slow season to be discouraged?  (This time last year, the date gap for tags was from 23 Nov 08 to 6 March 09).  Or could we all agree that not every tag will be interesting to everybody?  

I’d venture to say that no one here other than Tom really knows how fortunate I am to be able to ride today.  Regardless of the tag, if I have time, I’m there – whether it be a WWII Monument, motorcycle dealership, caboose, or whatever.  I’m in it for the ride.  Every mile is a blessing for me.  Let’s ride.

-Wayne

The game stalled.  Nobody wanted to tag it.  

 



The game didn't stall because of the location of the tag. The game stalled because it is WINTER! And most people do not ride in the winter. Really Ted, most riders are not as hard core as you. But then it's not the first time you bitched about a tag either.

Yes, cabin fever is working over here.  I am riding. I have about 900 miles this month on the KLR.  Put on over a hundred miles between yesterday and this morning.  I even rode during our last snow storm.   Yes, I am getting tired of riding in the snow and the cold and I am getting a little cranky.

I may bitch about a tag in the future.  Don't take it personal.  I just want a fun tag to tag.  I am sure that I have placed some tags that someone else did not like and hey I can understand if they don't like it.  I will not take it personal.  I know that you can please some folks some of the time but you can't please all the folks all the time.

Lets stop the bickering and get back to the game.

Reldeed  just edit your tag so we can get the game rolling again.  By no means do I expect you to pull your tag.  Your right, just because it is not interesting to me does not mean that it is not interesting to someone else.

I'd agree with that.  Looks to me like it's stalled due to the current riding season...

If I took a picture of my bike in the driveway could I count that as a tag? I will not be riding for a while as my stupid road looks like an ice rink still. I hate dirt roads. I was able to start my bike yesterday and try to scare away this damn snow. Wildbornz it would be nice to see you bring it over to the west side again.

Hey y'all  :D

I have been down with a bout of Viral Bronchitis and this has caused me to miss some good days of riding.

I have been looking at a different bike that I can run in the off season without pullling the wraps of from the Bully. 800 lbs is too much to try to horse around on a slide. :crazy: I am looking at a smaller dual 400/600 for ride time in the winter and backroad time in the summer.  :bigok:

 :leghump: Hopefully I can find one before the snow melts.

I just broke my iPhone, so I'm relegated to an old HTC slider for a few months until the upgrade kicks in.  It's got a camera, but the internet isn't hooked up yet.  Been trying all day to get thru to AT&T to swap the service out.  BTW, I took the leisurely way home, as I only live about 15 miles from Marvin's.  When were you there?  I took the picture about 1PM.

My old dirt stomping grounds are now occupied by Lakeside Mall in Sterling Hts.  They took some perfectly good woods and water out of the mix to give us yet another shopping mall.  We'd leave the Utica Rd/Schoenherr subdivision and head out for the day and never touch pavement back in the early '70s.  We'd get as far north as Romeo via the power lines and dirt trails.

Sorry about not giving you a call Krellian.  Going after the phototag was a last minute kinda deal.  Pops66 was out talking about it.  I took a quick look figured out the milage, got on the bike and was gone.  I had to be home by about 2 ish, as Justin's going away party was scheduled to start at 2:00.  Needless to say, leaving at about 11:30 and doing the 167 miles round trip with a stop at tag, then a stop at the tag that I had planned on putting up, a gas stop and home by 2:00, there was not much time.  I think I had some sport in the touring that day. I pushed it hard to be home on time.  I will be watching the weather and will keep you in mind for the next one.
