Title: **Official** ST.N PA Tag Game
Post by: Lakeguy556 on July 10, 2009, 01:03:27 pm
Here are the rules in case anyones a noob, as stolen from ADV

#1 - Find the tag and reproduce the photo (as best as possible). The first person to post a found tag gets to place the next tag. If you get a tag, but somebody else posts their picture first, you lose(Bruced).

#2 - Take the tag to a new location, get the photo and post it here. Give a few hints so the next person can figure out where the tag is located. Try to place the tags in interesting locations, maybe a bit of history that can be found down some nice twisties. Remember, the point of the game is not to make the clues difficult to figure out. It is about riding, not Googling.

#2a - New tag must be placed within 36 hours. If new tag is not set, the first Bruce posted gets the tag. If no Bruce was claimed, tag will revert to the previous tag, and somebody else will get their chance. If you won't have the time to drop it off, don't pick it up to begin with.

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

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

#5 - The motorcycle in the picture must get to the tag location under its own power (The vfr870 rule).




This is only right down the road from me and it would be a good place to start, I figured.

Guys, either PM me or name the location and name of the tag whenever it is picked up. I will try to keep a running list on the first post.

Also, please make sure you include hints with your tag pic so that people not familiar with the exact location/area are able to find it.

The last tag by Smoker was Safe Harbor Dam along the Susquehanna.  It was a nice evening ride on River Road to get there.

I was itching to ride.   :bigok:  Thanks for bringing it East - you have the record so far for furtherest movement of the tag. 

I decided to put it further East, for the SEPA crowd.  I don't thing there will be a big GAP till someone else gets it, but we shall see.   ;)

I replaced my images with larger ones.  It seems that the image is shrunk when I e-mail it to my photobucket, at least when on the 'E' data networks.  

Now you can better see the No Parking sign by the tower.   :lol:  C'mon taggers - go get it!

Jeets - if you google some of these hints, like the name of the village on the sign (not Wind Gap) and clock tower you will find the tag.  It was built in 1892, btw.  Good luck.

I know how you feel.  I don't ever expect to be the first one to get to a tag.

What's great about this game is that getting the tag doesn't matter (at least not to me).
          ["It's not whether you win or lose; until you lose."]

You can have a great time just riding around trying to find the gosh darn thing.
It's a great excuse to ride somewhere; explore some new roads.
Heck, you might even meet up with some STN'rs.
We'll have to do that one of these weekends.

You know - I could grab this tag - just skip outta work this afternoon.  
Ah heck, I'm too dedicated; sometimes it seems, to the wrong things.

That's really the whole point. The tag it self shouldn't matter. Go for a ride, take a picture and post it. It's not a bad way to spend an afternoon.

For those who like more info, here is the wiki.  The tower has been a common site for travelers for over 100 years - it is situated alongside the northern end of Route 41 in Gap, PA.  Route 41 continues South to end at Wilmingtown DE.

The Gap Town Clock, built in 1892, is a Lancaster County Historic Preservation Trust Site located in Gap. According to the Gap Clock Tower Association, "The clock's face, long telling the time to passing multitudes, overlooks, at the gap, William Penns' entrance into Conestoga, now Lancaster County, in 1701.

Today was the first time I had run 897 south of 23 and found out how great of a road it would be if it wasn't covered in white chalky crap that severely impedes traction.  Anybody know what this crap is and why its all over the road???  At first I thought salt but theres no way it would not have washed off with all the rain we got in June.  I was behind slow conservative driven cars the whole way south but after picking up the tag and heading north I was alone for a bit and picked up the pace...until the first corner when I felt my rear powerslide out at a heavy, but not extreme, lean angle with moderate throttle, something that has never happened with these tires.  And no, it wasn't just smashed road apples, there's somethin slick on that road.


Title: Re: **Official** ST.N PA Tag Game
Post by: Skee on July 14, 2009, 10:03:15 pm
897 is a great ride.  I don't remember seeing any white stuff on it 2 weeks ago, but I didn't take it very far north out of MD.  There are any number of interesting little side cut-offs that you can take.


Title: Re: **Official** ST.N PA Tag Game
Post by: Smoker on July 14, 2009, 10:19:33 pm
I was just on 897 from Shafferstown to Fivepointville, no chalky white stuff. I was on it from 322 to 30 on Saturday, I don't remember seeing it then either. Maybe they're getting ready to tar and chip?? :shrug:

Looking forward to the next tag!!

If no one gets this one by the weekend, I will give it a go.  It is very near some good mountain riding.  Many US Indian folks see that place as a spiritual STATION on the journey toward their divine SUMMIT - a Summet Station, if you will.     ;)

Hey, we can't hold it against you, rince.  That aren't that many pink Taj Mahal's in PA -- at least, there weren't the last time I checked the state pink Taj Mahal registry.   ;)

I'm looking forward to jumping into the fray.  If I snag one, I'll probably start moving it back west for awhile so those guys can play.  And then we'll bring it back.   :D

Good luck with your plan, Squeezer.  Personally I would be a little nervous of getting Bruce'd if I were traveling that distance to retrieve the tag, but that is a part of the game.  

I was a little nervous of losing the tag last night - there is not very good cellular data coverage up in the mountains!   ;) :D

Yup, here ya go! Once the HQ of a powerful company, it now sits empty. The country that made my motorcycle helped build it when we were at war with them and contributed to its demise after we made peace with them.

It's also the tallest building in the Lehigh Valley.

Good one, Silverhound.  I thought it was in that general area, but I couldn't put my finger on it until you dropped that additional hint.  Now I remember seeing it frequently off of a main thoroughfare.  Looking at the construction date, I'm not sure I completely understand your first hint - maybe it can be clarified later.  Oh wait, I guess you mean the war helped build the company, and not this building - ahso!

I did take a photo in front of the monument, but I like this shot.  I hung out for awhile & ate lunch by the statue before heading home.  Ya know, if I had headed straight back on the turnpike instead of running up 74 and across ST Peter's down Gold Mine & out 895 I might have beat your post.  But what fun is that?   :D

You made the right choice taking the long way home.  I wish I could have been on those roads today.      

FYI you can use a smartphone to upload quicker than going to a wifi location, or waiting to return home.

I picked my location and will post it up tomorrow.

74 is one jim-dandy of a road, I rode it last week-end. I had a feeling I would bruce someone. Like I said earlier, I'm about 15-20 minutes from that statue. I was hoping to tag Gettysburg, as that where I live. The Peace Light is right up from that and would have made a great picture at dusk.
Officially: James Samuel Wadsworth Monument    Reynolds Avenue, Gettysburg, PA 17325.

Good advice.  I thought about doing that.
One of these times, I'll get lucky.  Till then, I'm gonna enjoy the ride.
I guess I just don't have that killer instinct.

It was a great day for a ride.  I actually added 80 miles to my planned route home.  
For as crappy as late Spring, it's been near perfect since.  Perfect riding weather, and this is mid-July.

Thanks,

I remember you.  I will try to get the tags find some good new places for you to ride. :lol:

I wish this started about 45 days ago.  I was on vacation for a few weeks and could have gotten many tags.  But, now it is back to work.  Oh well.

I noticed on the other state tag (DE I believe) they have a map at the top and the poster is tracking the locations.  I thought that was helpful.

Kiwi is the shoe polish folks.  I have passed this place many times when riding.  Go past kiwi and take the first right then to the T and head north and just turn when you feel like it.  There are many good roads up in the area.  I thought it was the only Kiwi in the us but when I googled it there was a california address.

Sorry Jeff, hope you didn't miss that waiting for me.  I would have liked to ride, but I got an itchy case of poison while pruning some shrubs.  There was no way I was climbing into my gear in 80+ degree weather.  Just call me a wussie.  Maybe some spirited riding would have taken my mind off the itch, but so does Benadryl.  Right now, I'm contemplating having everything on my property cut down and black topped.  That would take care of mowing and my allergies too.  Maybe I shouldn't have washed that Benadryl down with Tequila.  I think I might know where the current tag is; I ride by but never stop.  Curssed Benadryl.

Make sure you scrub everything. The oil that causes the rash from poison ivy is pretty pervasive. I had it for 4 months after my kid crashed my car into a field. Took me forever to get the car cleaned - inside and out - and to finally figure out my sneakers were the cause of the continued reinfections :(

I'd have it by now if I wasn't so [email protected] devoted to my job.  I really gotta start knockin' off once and awhile.  Or maybe going home on time instead of checking the board while I'm still at work.  Nice evening for a ride, but I'm still homebound.  Benadryl is my friend

Sorry, thought it would be easy, given that there are 50 plus bikes there on Sundays, everything from cruisers to 1098's. Oh well...

Mark, seriously, I wanted a C14 until Jere told me they'd power wheelie with a passenger. Don't have enough self control for that...

I guess it would depend on if it's a recognizable pic or not, wouldn't it.  I hope you get it, seeding you were already by kutztown looking for it.  I read that kutztown airport is to be shutdown, maybe become a mall.  Too bad for that.

Absolutely! You should get extra points for making a grab after dark (https://www.sport-touring.net/forums/index.php/topic,36038.msg969346.html#msg969346)... if there were points.

If someone doesn't get it by the time I get out of work tomorrow, I'm going right there!  And I won't have the time or energy to ride much, so the next tag would be in the same area...  If anyone wants to move the tag to another region, you better beat me to it!

Have at it Bravo. I was going to snag it but based on the radar and the fact that the humidy feels like it's about 135%, I think I'll stay home in my A/C. We'll have to call you Brave-O if you grab this one.

I forgot there's some things I need to check on the bike that I was worried about on my ride home Sunday, like the exhaust backing out of the mid-pipe a little.  It also needs an oil change (although this tag isn't far enough to worry about putting off an oil change).

 :lol:    :bluduh:


(http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/glepore/tagduc.jpg?t=1248707151)


And the official tag, as good as it gets with my camera at dusk under heavy cloud cover:

(http://b12power.com/vfr/vansant2.jpg)

I couldn't get them to move the glider into the same position as the first photo.  And yes I tried the flash - it just made the bike stand out and the background completely black.  I had drizzle to light rain the whole way there and back, and caught nearly every red light on 132 getting to 611.  Once I turned off 611 towards Van Sant Airport, the woods looked like the frikken Enchanted Forest from the Wizard of Oz, with mist rising from the road.  The bugs were almost as thick as the rain at that point, too.  Heading home, Rt 32 had some standing water to navigate, and 263 had way too many jerks who like to leave their high-beams on.   :mad2:

Since it was dark by the time I took those pics, and now it's after 10, you bishes will have to wait until tomorrow for the next tag.  I should have it up in 24 hours.  Oh, and I will make it convenient for me this time.    :naughty:

I'm surprised the sky came out that light - it didn't look that light in person.  It was dusk when I got there, and pretty much dark by the time I snapped a few pics.  I would have had a little more light if I could have caught just one or two green lights on Street Road on the way there.

36 hours is not much time during the work week to find something surrounded by nice roads, especially when you live in Philly and you have to ride an hour just to get to some nice roads.  I originally headed over to Neshaminy Mall to get a pic with the large totem-pole mall sign, but apparently after several decades of it being there, someone thought it was in poor taste and now the huge sign pole is plain white instead of adorned with totem faces.  So, I found this one:

(http://b12power.com/vfr/bravotag1small.jpg) (http://b12power.com/vfr/bravotag1full.jpg)
(Click on the image for a larger version.)

Rest assured the photo was taken in PA.  I took more photos closer to the bridge, but I wasn't sure about the photo tag rules concerning "private property".  The marked private property still allows for public access but cautions that you proceed at your own risk and instructs people to stay on the paved road.  Methinks the signs are more for liability waiver than as a trespassing warning.  Anyway, this pic was taken before you enter the private property.

Some hints: this bridge was first opened to traffic on May 1, 1931 and has a total length of 2,301 feet.  Oh, and I didn't ride far from home, since I spent some time after work taking off the racks, putting on the rear seat cowl, tightening up the exhaust slip-on, and running a hose over the whole bike to get the last 2 rain storms off of it.

I was worried I'd run out of daylight again, then you'd be stuck with a tag outside my work tomorrow morning, and I don't think you wanted to ride into downtown Philly in this summer heat.

It's no problem, I'm just giving you a hard time.   :bigok:  It will be nice to have a fresh tag this evening for possible morning hunting.

What method did you end up using to post your tag with your cell phone?  I have an iPhone and was e-mail uploading to Photobucket, but the mobile photobucket site seems to post the pics real small.


Title: Re: **Official** ST.N PA Tag Game
Post by: molferen on August 01, 2009, 04:03:26 pm
I used the same method.  I had to guess at the exact url of the photo as I couldn't see the whole thing in photobucket.  I first tried the mobile version of the photobucket site but then used the normal version through Safari.

That sounds like a good idea.  Lemme know when she is signing up - Chandra doesn't even have her learner's permit yet.


Let's stay on bridges.  This one here is the oldest in the county.

That's a nice and obscure one, sodapop.  I was expecting a lot more action on the Ephrata tag placed in the middle if the First Sunday meet, but I guess the storms kept people at bay.  I thought I had it timed so well but I neglected to check the weather radar.  Oh well, it was a fun (near) midnite run.

What a nice day for a ride. Bike ran great and didn't seem to have any CARBON build up even in the high elevations not unlike those of SWITZERLAND if it were in AMERICA. Found this train station in a town where the richest man in PA once lived but it's named after someone else who never even set foot in it.

Happy Hunting.

PS: You are advised not to go here on a weekend unless you want to sit in traffic for a long time.

If I am guessing right, I've maybe been there mountain biking?  No time to grab that one myself.  Someone move it west by the weekend, though - I actually have the whole weekend off, and if the weather is going to be nice (or at least not pouring buckets like yesterday) I might do another overnight moto-camping trip.

Post by: JamminJere on August 03, 2009, 07:49:52 pm
Well... somethings are just NOT meant to be....  I checked the thread 3 MINUTES after Silverhound posted up the new tag.. I was in my riding gear and out of the garage (what a nice evening) before 5:35pm..  Shot up the 663 to the Turnpike in Q-town...  and about 8 minutes later.. instead of getting a tag... the good ole Turnpike decided I needed a new back tire instead...(took this pic before I cut off the excess, and rubbed some sand on it)

(http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z311/JamminJere/100_4398.jpg)

Didn't want to chance getting the tag, because I may be doing the same thing again in the dark.. I got off at Allentown and headed home.... Of course it didn't lose a pound on the way back (I love the TPMS on the C14) and I was feeling pretty smug about abandoning the tag.. Until I got to Half-Way house.. looked down the plug snotted out again.. and I was losing air... fairly quickly.. made it in the garage with 6psi showing..

Now I'm off to snag a new rear PR2..  [email protected]^%##

Nice Tag, Silverhound... and I had a good new one all picked out too... Dammit.. ;)

Well that just sucks but at least you made it home. I had an "unrepairable" flat on my Valk a couple years back and sat and waited for a tow service for almost six hours. It was a Sunday and I was about 60 miles from home. That blew.

There's a Cycle Gear shop right in Allentown, you could have picked up the PR2 and wore it around your waist on the way home.  :lol:

Anyhow, the important thing is that you had a safe trip. :thumbsup:

Ha... you never seen my waist!  :lol:

I'd say this one was unrepairable... I had two big gummy worms in there and it only held for 30 miles or so.. but your right at least I made it into my garage without incident. I plugged it again and aired it up just so I can push it around to change it out when the tire gets here..

Ok would someone let me in on this secret tire society thing going on here? Who's Gary-Murph-whoever and is this person a source for tires and other things bike related? I don't need tires right now but I expect I will at some point (based on prior experience with the rubber just not staying on the tires indefinitely) and the last time I went tire shopping in my area for a PR2 for my former Blackbird it was a nightmare.

One dealership didn't have a clue as to the difference between a PR and PR2 and when I did finally buy the tire at Cycle Gear I had to show "techboy" how to use the mounting machine and balancer so he didn't completely trash my rim.  :crazy:

Please share with the group. :lol:

Man, it sounds like a few folks are having trouble with their rides.  I have to bring my FJR to the shop tomorrow because the starter kicks on when the bars are locked in the right-most position.  I think it has something to do with the ignition switch recall that was done but I guess not properly.

Yeah, talk about auto-start.  The problem seemed to only happen after the bike was warmed up, so I backed it out of the garage with the engine off one morning.  Good thing I was in neutral.  As soon as the bars were full-right, the bike started by itself!

Hey KawaMike

I checkout the site often but am not a member yet.  Isn't the zx14 a croch rocket?  I would think the leaned over riding position would get to me after awhile.  My REX is an 02 also with somewhere around 66K on it. :D

Bunch of great people over on ZRXOA, the place to be for everything ZRX.
I never rode a real crotch rocket so I can't compare, but I'm told the ZX14 has a more relaxed riding position. Me and my old lady did 356 miles on it this past Saturday. I find it very comfortable. I bought it a month ago (new left over) and have a little over 2k miles on it. If the UPS man shows it will be more touring by the end of the week.

Hopefully I can get this thread back on track today. :cool:

Yeah, I'm banging out.  Gonna call tonight in case they need to hire for OT (I doubt it).  I made a big deal in front of my Lieutenant today about my neck hurting and giving me a headache - even had ice on my neck - so he's probably expecting me to be out tomorrow anyway.  Good opportunity to see the midnight showing of G.I.Joe and head out before noon tomorrow for a nice afternoon/evening ride.  Hopefully, the next tag will give me some inspiration on where to go.   :D

Climbing the peak in the background is, well, a crowning achievement. The view is from a road named after the next peak west, full of twisties, and well worth running out past the tag to its end. South of the Poconos, west of the Lehigh Valley. The vista is MUCH more spectacular than this photo captures.

Have more hints if needed, but that should work for now.

Great roads leading up to this and away as well, a nice loop even if you slab to get there.

The clues make no sense to me.  I'm thoroughly lost and confused.

Of course, I never got the Motown clue either, even after I knew where the tag was.

The crag in that photo looks real familiar; I think I rode by there on the way home from Gettysburg.

GOOD TAG.  It's gonna be a great weekend for riding.

Well it was another beautiful day for a ride and I went off looking for the tag full of confidence. Unfortunately I picked the wrong road named after a mountain and missed it by about 30 miles. I'll leave it for someone else now.  :(

I'm thinkin' it's actually at an intersection coming up to the namesake road.

WHAY OWHY AM I STILL AT WORK?

Post by: Rincewind on August 07, 2009, 05:17:55 pm
Hey Skee - the name of this road is shared by the next mountain over, as was said.  You can hike that mountain and look down on things that normally you must look up at.  At least I think that's where it is - and my wife said she'd kill me to go out at the moment.  Not sure how this tag photo would look at night...  Hmmm would need a tripod.

Pack a lunch :augie:  You will need it.  I will have the new tag up about this time tomorrow night.

I spoke with a couple of kids  at the religous school near PineCreek road about the religous clue.  I did not get the clue until I was on my way home on RTE61 then it just popped into my head.  I felt like an idiot becaused I asked a few people if they knew if there was a reference in the area that would fit. :crazy:

Well I sure as heck had no clue where this tag was. :headscratch:
Just decided to ride out through PA back roads and get lost, find a hotel for the night and ride some more tomorrow. Unbeknownst to me I probably rode rite past the tag. We ended up in Frackville for the evening, and will ride up toward Centralia in the am. Then head south and loop back east toward Jersey. We rode some really great roads. It was a beautiful day for riding. :thumbsup:

Post by: SilverHound on August 07, 2009, 11:49:41 pm
I figured out where it was right after I learned that Blue Mountain was the wrong one (nice ride though, found another covered bridge). By that time though I had to head back home. I've been down Hawk Mountain Road a few times but last time (two years ago?) they had just finished a tar and chip job on it and that wasn't any fun at all.  :eek:

Thanks for explaining the clues.  I'm ashamed to admit I had to Google Bob Zimmerman.  But I recognized that view on Hawk Mt right away.  I usually take Gold Key to a short stretch on 143 over Hawk Mt then up to Phila Rd and 1011 (Thanks again JJ!;-) up 339 and hook around to 125 and back.  That's my favorite weekend loop.

Great tag Sodapop and great first clue. You weren't kidding about packing a lunch but for me I would have to pack an overnight bag as well. Google maps say it's 352 miles from me so I guess this one will go to someone either closer or with more time. Glad to see it being moved within reasonable distance to "other" regions in PA though.

Don't let the peer pressure get to you.  If someone on the east side of Pa wants it they will go out and get it :lol:

I either need help with the Mr Peabody clue or another clue.  The connection I found with Peabody and Pa. are mostly eastern Pa connections.  The only western Pa connection I could not find a picture of his home.

Looking at the picture I thought it was a special house on a rock but it is closed on Mondays and I don't think a picture can be taken from the street.

morning, speaking of ROCK, if you were to climb those steps, you would find SHELTER under the porch.  it's funny, people from philly think "america starts here", but we know they are not the oldest settlement in PA.  if you went WAY BACK in time, and i mean WAY BACK, folks would still be hangin' around this place.  however, i still don't think you would see a MEADOW*****.  it's funny, travel involves time and distance, sodapop went the farthest so far in distance, so i tried to go the farthest in time.  ;)

if you need more hints, let me know.  make sure to visit this place's website before you ride out, it's not open to the public every day.

if you do run out west and "steal" the tag, plan on spending some time @ Meadow*****.  the eastern indian village is worth the time if you are a history buff.  the house on a river thats closed on mondays, (and you are right, you can't see it from the road) is worth your time.  there is a lot see in this area south I70 and west US219.  the game is just an excuse to visit some interesting places for me.  that's how i stumbled on the game, i was riding out east on a visit and wanted to see what might be worth checking out.  my hope was someone in SWPA going to carlisle would just pick it up and move somehere in this area.  however, my pathetic plea for help seems to have been a failure. :o  regardless, this has still been fun.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY to silverhound's daughter.

Heck no.. I"m not POd about the dumb flat...

 I was just saying, don't drive to the current tag worrying about if you're gonna get Bruced or not.. if you do go, just go for the scenery and the ride, and hope you're the first one to post it up...thats all.

Hell I'm used to getting flats with this bike... I usually am just lucky enough to pick something up in the rear tire way before (like almost new) the tire is worn out. If its a simple nail or screw, I plug it and run the tire with it in for the life of the tire... This time it was just unrepairable.. so I helped the economy and bought another Michelin.

I'm goin cycle-camping this weekend with some of my buds from west-central PA..(SLK50, his son and Cablebandit) but we are heading up into western NY.  So I won't be making an attempt on this tag, this weekend.  If I understand correctly, Cablebandit is still currently laid off.. We just better hope and pray he doesn't snatch it up and post one even farther away from us.  Rince and Smoker, bring it back to this side of PA if you can.. :)

On Sunday I will most likely do Russel's Carlisle ride as planned, instead of running the turnpike to Ohio for this tag.  Twisties beats slab.   :bigok:

Speaking of Ohio, this tag is dangerously close to Region 4.  Hopefully they won't notice that.  :lol:

Have a great trip to W NY JJ, SLK, & CableBandit!   :burnout:

I know where the tag is. It's about an hour from home. But I can't be bothered to get it/move it. I'm sick of playing "tag" with ADV and our local forum so I haven't been paying attention to this one (or the other two lately). Feels wrong to re-use tag locations that were used in other games already and I'm out of interesting ideas...

I thought there were more STN'ers in Western PA.  Garry doesn't want to play, and Maddjack isn't paying attention.  

Guess we'll have to take the ball elsewhere...

Allan is in the area too, but I don't think he's paying attention. There actually aren't many active STN folk in the Pittsburgh area.

If it's still around on Friday (21st), I'll be riding past it on the way to the Euro Rider Rendezvous.

I've been out on the bike every day this week except yesterday.  (Had to take a week's vacation just to get yesterday off to work the Steeler game.)  I've seen the tag, read the hint and don't have a clue where it is.  If I knew....I still have a coupla days left before work takes over the life again.

here you go:

Boy...you guys are tough....eye-rolling?  really?  anyway...went out to Meadowcroft Museum today.  Kudos for the location as it sits at the gateway to the best set of roads around here.  Avella is a great place to start.  
After snapping a pic I ran a bunch of them.  Next tag to come with hints and whatnot...but I ended up doing about 260 miles and was on the road about 7 hours.  Came home...had dinner...chatted with the family that I abandoned all day and then uploaded a bunch of pics from the day so here's the tag...sorry to make y'all wait.


(http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47b9d634b3127ccec78a0001bbc500000040O00AaMW7hw3auGIPbz4G/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/)


Title: Re: **Official** ST.N PA Tag Game
Post by: shootist on August 16, 2009, 01:38:11 am
All right...so I ran the roads south of Meadowcroft but didn't want to tag something down there or else we'd be in the same (or worse) situation of availability.

So I headed in another direction afterward and came up with this:

(http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47b9d634b3127ccec78b0127db3700000040O00AaMW7hw3auGIPbz4G/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D720/ry%3D480/)


So the tag goes from a Triumph to a Triumph...and as I made my way to this parking place, the echoing sound of that beautiful British mill rivaled that of the quaint Irish one half a soccer pitch away.

Title: Re: **Official** ST.N PA Tag Game
Post by: KAWAMIKIE on August 16, 2009, 01:23:51 pm
Looks like a nice place. But.......I can't figure out where it's at. I just searched for more than an hour and have no clue as to your clues. :confused:
I tried searching everything, parks, soccer fields, Irish, British, mills, counties. Couldn't find it though.
It looks like a place I've seen pics of  before, near Clearfield. But it could be just another group of rocks. :headscratch:

I just picked up an 05 1050 Speed Triple on Friday, help a brother out. :bigok:


Title: Re: **Official** ST.N PA Tag Game
Post by: SilverHound on August 16, 2009, 01:49:41 pm
Arggggh! I think I figured it out but I have to leave for a business trip on Monday so I probably won't be able to grab this one either.  :(

So, KawaMike for the sake of hopefully getting this tag back east let me just say that I think his reference to a "British Mill" is the sound of the engine of his Triumph so don't use that in you search. So stick with your Park and Irish Mill criteria and I think you will hone in on it. Irish names are pretty obvious.

Post by: shootist on August 16, 2009, 02:24:32 pm
yeah....well.....heh-heh...my 260 mile ride yesterday moved the a tag only 75 miles or so.  I thought it might encourage some NWPAers to play...while also placing it a mere 3 miles from some of that despicable slab...just in case someone from the east wanted to make a hit-and-run grab.

i know where that is.  if someone else doesn't grab it by the weekend, (youngest and the last of my money off to college early this week), i'll move it.  hey, shootist, nice bike, nice tag.  i'm off all week, so if one of you guys decide to dash out west, drop me a line.  i promise not to bruce you and may even buy you lunch.

I see that they aren't paying attention or don't have the folks riding out there :deadhorse: like there is on the east side of the state.  I won't make the mistake of putting it too far west again. :crazy:

I won't be able to attempt it for a week and a half (damn work getting in the way of riding and having fun why don't they just pay me and leave me alone?)

How big is this park?

How big is this park?

The park is 2546 acres.
It looks like a really nice place and there's a lot to see out that way and in between.
I would ride out there but I'm inbetween tires. The old ones are too good to change now, but I don't think they would make the trip riding 2up. I have a brand new set of PR2's waiting to go on.

No wasn't me.
But I do know Headquarters rd., at least the one in Tinicum Township. :thumbsup: It's a nice twisty road.


Title: Re: **Official** ST.N PA Tag Game
Post by: JamminJere on August 19, 2009, 06:25:33 pm
Yup.. thats the road...

come up from the river, make a left on Cafferty road, turn left into the airport driveway at the top of the hill... Sunday mornings, its a motorcycle mecca of brands and models you don't normally see on the road.. Last Sunday even in that heat there was probably 75 bikes there when my son and I pulled in.. Its a cool place to hang out, talk to other riders, watch the airplanes and gliders get towed up.. Some biplane stunt rides, etc..

Check it out sometime..

Gosh it sure has been quiet around here lately  :sleepy: . Is anyone gonna try for this tag over the weekend? I would but I'm taking the MSF ERC on Sunday and this tag would be an overnighter for me.

If no one grabs it over the weekend I might be inclined to head out on Monday to snag it. Don't want to get Bruced on a 700 mile round trip but at this point I would take my chances to get it back east.  :lol:

Thanks! I'm really looking forward to it. I just took the BRC two years ago after riding for almost 30 years and got quite a bit out of it so the ERC should be good.

I have to work Monday too but thanks to call forwarding, my Zumo sync'd to my cell phone and a headset I can at least screen calls to see if I need to answer any of them right away.  ;)

Well....passed the ERC today (everybody did) but man was it hot. Air temp on the FJR read 111 degrees which I know is hotter than the actual air temp but it felt every bit of it on the pavement. I brought two bottles of water...should have brought six.

So not to make this a complete hijack...I'm not heading out for the tag tomorrow as right now I don't want to get back on the bike for at least a couple days...although I might feel different in the morning when my electrolites get back to normal and my pee is no longer neon yellow.  ;)  :lol:

Ok Guys here's your new tag. Wasn't too CLEAR out here today! Back in 1985 a big wind went thru here!(http://C:\Users\Robert\Pictures\PA Tag\PA Tag.JPG)

Your attached picture looks fine!  Good tag.  I will have to figure this one out...  

FYI you can't use the IMG tags with pics located on your personal hard drive - they must be hosted offsite to use the IMG tag button.  You can host offsite using websites such as Photobucket or Tinypic, but if you attach them that works too.

Edit: found where the tag is - nicely placed.

I'll tell you where the 6-sided outhouse is [in a park not too far from the burger run, if that's not giving too much away] if you tell me how to embed those little photos that blow-up when you click on them.  

If it's anywhere halfway near nice this weekend, I plan on getting Bruced.

Sitting in that little "tuck away" on that long straight heading towards the 202 merge?  Man...they are there all the time! The last time I went to NJMP on the bike, the guy in front of me was going over 75mph and all of a sudden the cop blasted out of there, lights on.. right in front of me chasing him... I was thinking... Thanks Dude... that coulda been me!

Just got back.  420 miles and I had a late start.  Decompressing with some beer now.  :beerchug:

You're lucky to have turned back J-Mac - there was a lot of rain West of the river.  Then my Garmin sent me on a 12-mile unpaved route, which I'm sure Smoker would have loved.  

I will sort through the next tags and should have the next one up later tonight in case people want to go for it tomorrow.

It was a few hours ago, but yes it was probably the same storms.  There were a series of them, starting about 45mins before the I made the tag, and lasting about 2hrs after the tag.  Glad I brought my rain suit!  It was like traveling through a piece of Impressionist water-color art.

This old railroad bridge has a sister bridge just south of it.  The picture was taken while standing on an island.  What you see is the meeting point of West and North branches, merging into one great river.

I had a fair bit of fog around Harrisburg on my way up, but not at the Rt 80 high point.  It started raining right about there in the way up, but I was dumb enough to miss the last overpass to change into my rain suit, and didn't get it on till the tag, by which time I was pretty soaked. 

That tag of yours was quite a ways down the park road-I even stopped to ask some guy, who  didn't know but gave me a "you're crazy" look from under his umbrella.

Still it was a good day to be riding.

This is not the tag, but could be a bonus tag. :P

Sunbury is to the South, Northumberland is to the North.  The majority of the Shikillamy State Park is to the West on the other side of the Susquehanna, where there is an overlook of the rivers merging.  The Island portion is where the park's marina is located.  

http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/stateparks/parks/shikellamy.aspx / and here is a map - http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/stateparks/parks/shikellamy/shikellamy_mini.pdf

Here is the next bridge up-river, which is 147.

Did they still have the park blocked off for the triathlon when you got there?

Yeah, 530-some miles today and I can't even officially whine about being Bruced, cause I forgot my camera.  I did get to ride 125 south to north and the north to south.  Rt 235 has just been paved and it is in real good condition.  Great ride.  And I found a 2-bit 2-laner with some awesome curves north of it that's worth a return trip.  Least ways now I got my butt conditioned for ESTN.

Jeez, I was through there [where the new tag is] yesterday - don't recognize the exact spot.

When I got to the bridge tag yesterday, they had the spot roped off with orange tape, and there was an official photographer there.  She let me park my bike in the spot and I took a photo with my camera phone.  Once I get around to offloading it (with a cable), I'll at least be able to claim a Bruce.

I'm going to keep you young guys on your toes...heh heh heh

If you put yours up, that would be three bruces for this one tag - a record for the PA game so far, I believe.  Now that the tag was brought back East, it's a dogpile!  :lol:  :bigok:

Yes, I did see you in Sunbury. We were going to go to World's End State Park to place the next tag, but the kiddos have their first day of school tomorrow, and we didn't want to stay out too late.

Sorry to "bruce" you fellas, it was an excellent day to be out riding though!


Oh. Not a photographer. Maybe we can go together next time, you can give me some lessons. :bigok:


Smoke - That's where Tony and I ended up yesterday - World's End. We started heading back around 2pm. Came back through Sunbury. Great day for a ride. Your cousin isn't quite how I pictured him.... :eek:

Next thing you know, I'll find out that I'm on double-secret probation.

Since I was in the neighborhood, I figured I'd go over and pick this one up as well.
(http://home2.netcarrier.com/%7Efidowski/PhotoTag 8side.jpg)
Was a great ride.  Ran into MartyA from FJRforum at gas station in Phillipsburg.

Here is that route I stumbled on...
From Rt 522 in Beaver Springs
Take Hwy 235 North
Take Hwy 45 West to Milheim
Take 445 North to Snydertown  (Starts out as Elk Creek Rd, goes left on Brush Valley Rd then right onto Madisonburg Pike into Pike Rd)
From Snydertown you can take Sand Hill Rd over to 26 and get to 144

&UR right, my Wee is 1 fugly machine, the kind only a Mudder could luv.

She's is a bit underpowered, 'specially when you're trying to keep up with a Super Hawk on 641, but I still luv'er.

She done good Sunday - 14 hrs in the saddle and we were still communicating - and no complaints when my shortcut turned to dirt.

I guess maybe she felt threatened after I went and looked at a leftover Interceptor on Saturday.  LOL

Here is a clue: This soldier sits in the shadow of a famous landmark (to be used in The Last Airbender movie). He is located in a park near a street and mountain that all share the same name.

Warning** Parking for this shot was as awkward as Rince putting the moves on Mrs. Rince as it can be done but you have to be very careful.

Thanks for the "Last Airbender" clue - I had no idea they were filming some of that in SEPA.  Now I'm gonna have to take the kids to see this movie, just to find that footage.  Last I saw, there was a bunch of scaffolding all over said landmark.

*New Tag*

Tucked away off the beaten path between two hamlets in a historical fertile valley, This farmhouse originally belonged to the Doctor of which the house is named. He was a Doctor, healer, teacher, apothecary, and a Universalist by religion. This house was used as a church, the first of its kind in America from the mid to the late 1700's. This is not in plain sight, so you'll have to use your hunter instincts to find this one.

For those who wanted to know... this is the De Benneville House  http://www.berkshistory.org/articles/debenneville.html

Yeah and the place is for sale too... Just 1.7 million, and it could be yours!  :rolleyes:

I gotta hand it to you COGgers - you make it happen.  I'm glad I didn't make a run for it.  

This place was listed right there in the wiki on Universalism.  Because of William Penn's ideas on religious freedom, there must be a lot of unique religious history around PA.  That was an interesting link to read, Jere.  He was a Pietist mystic.

New Tag and sorry for the delay as it is difficult after a work day.

Clue:After their old barn burned, the Noah Sheely family built this particular barn in 1914. The round barn architecture was developed by the Shakers a religious sect whose members believed a circle to be the most perfect shape.

That's ok, you can laugh all you want, I got a good chuckle too.  :lol: :lol:

I saw this tag over an hour later it was posted, and I knew it would be a hot one.  If I would have looked at a map before going, I'm sure I would have had a better idea where it was.  When I got to Hopewell Furnace the gate was closed, and I took off up 345 thru French Creek, before turning around and hitting the road opposite the gate.  If I would have had coverage there, I could have still beaten your post!  Yeah well, it was a good excuse to go riding.

A few more shots of this morning.  I was out the garage at 4:45.

A close-up of the monument:

Here is the front porch looking in:

(http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w118/molferen/photo-4.jpg)

And here is a picture of me on the way home through Lebanon County.  Yes, that is your friendly West Lebanon Township LEO in my mirror.  He "claims" he "clocked" me doing 46.6 MPH in a 25 MHP zone.  The citation has the "Vascar" box checked even though the word he used was "clocked".  What is the difference?  There is a box to check labeled "Clocked".

The boxes to choose from are 1) Radar 2) ESP 3) Clocked 4) Vascar 5) A.O.V. 6) Other

Post by: Rincewind on September 08, 2009, 11:51:23 am
 :crazy:

Vascar means he had a stopwatch on you between two fixed points.  "Clocked" is if he was following and matching speed, I believe, but can be used as a verb more generally (as in, "clocked you with radar").

21.6 mph over is worth taking to court to get it lowered, imo.

Sorry to hear about the invite to the LEO dance :bluduh: I would definately fight it, at least you would get the officer off the road for a little while.


Title: Re: **Official** ST.N PA Tag Game
Post by: glepore on September 08, 2009, 07:36:05 pm
Vascar is an electronic stopwatch, you imput the distance btw two points (usually white stripes on the road) and click on one, then two, and voila, it computes speed.

I'm really surprised he actually wrote you, but hey, its not the end of the world. Try to go to court and get him to do "failure to obey posted signs" which is zero points, just a fine, and no insurance bump.41 in a 25 is not "really" speeding, and even the DJ's know this-21 over in a 45 is usually a different deal.

FWIW, the "protocol" really does help. Pull over asap, keep your hand visible at all times, remove helmet, but don't touch anything else, and tell the officer EVERYTHING  that you're about to do-ie-"officer, I need to get my registration-it's in my jacket(or under my seat), so I'm going to unzip my jacket, ok?" It seems silly to you, but it conveys that you understand his aprehension, and he'll likely have a different frame of mind.

Yeah, same bike, same angle almost. I was expecting someone to say that I just reposted Molferen's tag and claimed it. There are some subtle differences though if you look closely. Tank bra, green windshield, different seat.

That was a great tag Molferen. Talk about being isolated. Plus there's a road (Buck Hill Road) coming up out of Weatherly that has some 5 & 10 MPH posted turns and goes up a very steep hill. I also saw at least a dozen wild turkeys that tried to commit suicide by running out in front of me.

When I was a young boy growing up on Schooley's Mountain in NJ I could look almost directly west and in the distance over the horizon it looked like clouds were being made. It was only when I got older that I learned the clouds were coming from these two bad-boys over in PA some 20 miles away.

Now don't go afoul and start a rift if you can't find them. Just look over the border.

Funny you should ask. I wasn't sure how close I would be able to get so I started further away and worked myself closer. I guess since it's not a nuclear PP that security is pretty lax. I was waiting for some men in black to come question me but it never happened so I guess the answer is no, unless of course you want to do something illegal and test their response time.  :lol:

Oh now just chill...had I seen any warnings about taking photos, any physical security presence at all or anything that stopped me from getting close I would have heeded the warnings and chosen a different tag. Clearly you can see from the pix that there doesn't seem to be any great concern for security. I spent at least a half hour around that place and sometimes within clear view of their security cameras. Even stopped and had a smoke and made a call on my cell phone. A couple people entering the plant waved to me but that was the only interaction I had.  :p

Oh no, not at all! That's not what I meant. It's fine to post a tag close to home. The first one I did was like five minutes from here and should look familiar to you https://www.sport-touring.net/forums/index.php/topic,41664.msg957768.html#msg957768.  :bigok:

I'm just saying it would be too easy for me to grab that one so I'd rather leave it for someone else. Plus I have a busy week so I wouldn't be able to post a new tag in a timely manner. Just trying to keep it fun for everyone.

New Tag!
Out riding near Dauberville
I spotted along the road what I
 thought to be a small international tractor. Upon closer inspection it turned out a model 2161 Garfield. Take the time to explore the area, lots of twisties. :thumbsup:

WOW DosEquis00 you work fast! :bigok:


I was out riding all day today, did 300 miles, left at 8 am and got home at 7:30 pm. I only rode about 30 miles on highways, the rest was little twisty back roads. I went out from Scudders falls up to Bethlehem, then out toward Hamburg, and somehow ended up in Adamstown. From there headed home. It was a beautiful day. :)

A lot of good roads out around there.

It's actually at the entrance to what use to be the Bethlehem Steel Homer Research Lab Complex which sits up on top of a mountain and overlooks the old production yard below. Check out the link below for the lab complex and then look to the north and east of the image and you can see how big the Bethlehem Steel Property was/is (it's all the brown area along route 412).

New Tag

Colonel Franklin Swayne is responsible for the lion head’s at the entrance to this mansion. Difficult to see in the picture but they are on the pillars. Nice roads in the area but stay alert for deer.

Hibernia County Park, Chester County
In front of Hibernia Mansion Entrance

Tagged.....

and double tagged..

(http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z311/JamminJere/100_4453.jpg)

I ran into DosEquis and his wife at the tag... he pulled in about a minute after we arrived. We had a nice talk and looked at the Mansion up close.

I hope we can meet up for a ride sometime soon..


New one to be posted tomorrow..

Post by: JamminJere on September 20, 2009, 06:42:41 pm
I took a good look at Rince's tag map this morning at 7am, and realized we haven't had any tags up in the PA Wilds. So, hear you go... This is not a puzzle tag, this is a riding tag.

It doesn't matter what roads you take to get there, the scenery is gorgeous and some of the roads have new macadam. The leaves are just starting to change, a few more low temperature nights and it should be really nice foilage. Stop in for a meal while you're there.. Its the best food for MILES. Or if you're too tuckered, you could see if a room is available upstairs for the night.

You won't be able to post this tag from your cell phone right at the tag..   :lol:

I'm not saying anything.  If I do, it will probably rain.  It will probably rain anyway.

I'm gonna go sand my tires so it looks like I was out riding.  (Yeah, I'm still on that one.)


This is an awesome ride for me.  Phila Rd one way, 125 on the flip leg.  
But it's going to have to wait until Sunday.
Unless one of you youngsters grabs it first.

BTW Jerry; really, really, really nice tag.  Shame I love my job more than my personal life.  (Wife will attest to this, believe me, but it does pay at least some of the bills.)  I've been hoping & wishing and thinking about going after this one all week.  I could really go for one of their steaks.

I'd like to see more tags like this.  Nice challenging day ride.  

Not that I ever expect to get a tag, mind you…

I don't care what setup you have... you weren't gonna post from that location... :)  Cell phones don't work too well in those tight mountain passes... Unless you went in and used the owner's satelite PC upstairs...you'd be challenged to find another way close by there to post. That was just one of the subtle reasons I went there...  of course the others are I love it there, I know the owner, I love the food, etc etc etc...  :inlove:

It would be inconsiderate of me to fail to give the tag the proper tribute. It was EVERYTHING it was cracked up to be. 255/555/120 from DuBois to 44 was just a treat. As described, the roads are top shelf in both smiles/mile as well as condition. The leafs are not real colorful yet but are changing. Coming weekends will result in bigger crowds but following school buses from three districts on a weekday couldn't be worse. In other words, plan now.

johnes335, gotta luv the hotel, eaten there several times.  eating at new or off beat places is one of my favorite things about motorcycling.  the boss and i already have plans to eat brunch at six penn dahntahn 'n da 'burg tomorrow, followed by a stiller/cincy bungle party. (man, i miss myron) if i go, this will have to be a dash, tag, and post.  part of the game i like, but is time consuming in a good way, is not only grabbing the tag, but moving it to another spot within the time constraints. i may not have time the next few days to do the game justice.

I set out toward the tag this morning, but gave up at the Morgantown exit on the turnpike. The temp had dropped 15* since I left home, I was freezing my a$$ off. I rode around the back roads of
Morgantown for a while and headed back toward home. On the way back I stopped for lunch and to warm up at:

You'll understand why when you get there.

I had another location for the tag but rain forced me to keep the distance much closer to the original tag then I would of liked. That's your hint.

Hey Jer,

Doris and I are in a love and hate relationship right now. I cheated on her with Helga (R1200RT) in July and I've never been the same since. Doris likes to flirt with the law at triple digits which gets me into trouble. Helga's ergos call to me like only a young german blonde in a school girl outfit serving me pints of fine brew at Octoberfest can. I also keep hearing about this new female on the seen from Bologna that's supposed to strut her stuff for the 1st time in Milan next month. Only time will tell.

Cheers,
MG

Tag!  This one was a little too easy for me, so I was gonna let it slide, but since no one picked it up on a beautiful riding weekend, I snagged it anyway.

(http://i153.photobucket.com/albums/s206/squeezer_penn/100_0097.jpg)


And here's why it's closed:

(http://i153.photobucket.com/albums/s206/squeezer_penn/100_0095.jpg)

But, hey, it's for sale! Maybe we should pitch in?

Title: Re: **Official** ST.N PA Tag Game
Post by: squeezer on October 06, 2009, 09:11:17 am
The real reason I snagged the last one was that I wanted to move the tag to here in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month:

(http://i153.photobucket.com/albums/s206/squeezer_penn/100_0099.jpg)


Yes, it's the famous "Boob" Memorial. What could be better?

Here are your hints:
1. It's only 7.5 miles away from the Horseshoe Curve.
2. It's by a small bridge on a PA route also known as Colonel Drake Highway.
3. It's in a town whose name is pronounced the same as a well known North Carolina city, but there is a one letter difference in the spelling.
4. If you know someone who ran the Mason-Dixon 20-20 LD rally last year, they can probably give you the lat-long coordinates.

Lemme know if you need more hints.

Hey guys / gals, thanks for the welcome and nice comments on the VFR. I'd like to take all of the credit for keeping it clean but I just bought it Sept 19th. Put 1000 miles on it so far and like it more with each mile. Had a BMW R1100RS before and just never really bonded with it.

Anywho - here is the next tag.

It says:

"To the perpetual memory of the defenders of the union 1881-1885
 Erected Sept xx,xxxx by the surviving soldiers and citizens of Somerset County, PA" I couldn't make out the day and year after Sept, I believe it was the late 1800's

Well gee...I drove past Somerset twice in the last two days...unfortunately I was in a car and on business. If I'm not mistaken though you can see the damn tag right from the Turnpike.

I had to visit the Allegheny Northern Regional Police Department in Wexford. Anybody from around there? It looks like a real nice area.

Believe me I was cursing not being able to take the bike. The last two days have been absolutely perfect riding weather.  :(

I was up your way too. I stayed overnight at the Marriott in Cranberry Twp. on 228. One of the nicest Marriott's I've been to staff wise and trust me I've stayed at a lot of them around the country. The whole area seems very pleasant. I'm going to have to go back on the bike sometime, check out the sites you mentioned and get to know the area a little better.

Ok...hijack over from me too...now somebody grab that tag!

CB, thank you for the photo edit.

The tag.
(http://gallery.me.com/mlangguth/100046/IMG_0599/web.jpg)

With the HOLLIDAY coming up I thought it might be time for a history lesson. Halloween has its origins in All Saints Day, a christian HOLLIDAY that the now deceased shown in the tag officiated.

Note the names on the tombstones. The road the cemetery is located on, shares it's name with a general term for the place these persons lived their lives.

  Hey, I'm not into the photo tag game thing but I check in now and then looking for interesting places to ride to. It just so happens I ride past this cemetery everyday on my way home from work. Reservoir Rd just to the East of the cemetery is a little bit of curvy goodness linking Rt 36 to Rt 22 allowing me to completely avoid the slog on I-99.
  BTW, the cemetery is on the grounds of a Franciscan Friars monestery and riding through the area really allows me to leave the day behind and enjoy the ride.

How about not giving away the location next time, um kay?

:bash:

Some time and thought goes into the wording for everyone's hints. For someone, who admittedly doesn't even play, to come along and post the location before it's been tagged is insulting.

Gotta say I was a little miffed by that too. I was actually on my way to get that tag yesterday and stopped an hour into my trip, checked the Blackberry and thought by the wording and picture that the tag had been made so I turned around and went home. My bad for not reading it more carefully but I was just a little pissed when I got home and saw it was just an "information' post.

Fortunately I was only an hour into what would have been a three hour trip and I was able to cancel my motel room without a charge. If you don't believe me...here's my SPOT tracking info from yesterday.  :(

Like that would make a difference in my case!  LOL

BTW - I am not riding SAT - I'm not riding after midnight either - Call me a wussie!

Still, it looks like a great day ride.

Yes, I'm feeling a bit better, thanks.  I was feeling good enough to have a ride this afternoon.  

Here is the next tag.  This historic chapel has been converted to a 4-bedroom home, and is currently For Sale, listing at $535,000.  It was built in the mid to late 1800's, and serviced the first Health Resort to be established on the side of this Mountain.  This mountain location became popular for Sanatoriums in the late 19th Century, so there are many neat old buildings and ruins in the area.

and the new tag....The C14 boys don't mess around !! :cool:

Marquis de Lafayette visited these grounds, as did Samuel Adams, General Horatio Gates and Philip Livingston. This Histroic Inn stands on property included in the first land grant on the west bank of a large, well known river. The first metal-hulled steam vessel built in the United States took its maiden voyage from this Inn's shore. An inn has occupied this spot since at least 1780. And as a side note, their food is incredible.

The third picture is the view looking out from the porch of the Inn. There are some great state routes that run along the river and through some forests/mountains. There are also others that are twisty, twisty fun. Take the back way and you'll be rewarded with a nice fall ride, landscape, scenery, etc.

Punch - I thought you had picked up a R1100S Boxer Cup Replica over the summer - thought I remembered you stopping by my house on one.  Did you sell that bike already?

I believe I have been on the road for this new tag, but for the life of me I can't remember this formidable mansion/restaurant.  I would like to get over that way to check out a Guzzi dealer up 83, Europa Machina.  Too bad I won't have time soon, and the tag will probably be gone by that time.

Rince - That was my friend Tony. I think you have us confused. He lives in your neighborhood. However, sadly, that bike has been totaled so you won't be seeing it anymore. He is the same guy who has the 2007 Duc 1000S and now an '09 Versys.

The tag is off the beaten path a bit and the road dead ends. If you weren't going directly to the tag, you probably weren't down this precise road..unless of course you did a u-turn..

Man Rince, you got balls of steel parking on a slope like that...... :D :D You must have an S on your chest :eek:.

It was a little heavy parked that way actually. :lol:

I was hoping to see your next tag when I was in the Harrisburg area afterward, but yeah well.  I got to see the Europa Machina Guzzi shop like I wanted.  That's a cool shop if you like Guzzi's or Porsches.  There was a Ferrari and some racing BMW GP cars there too.

There is nothing secret about them, they were just new to me in the greater Reading Area:

Cross Keys off of Rt 61N, to Grange Rd - clean pavement and some entertaining twists
Wolf Creek Rd off of Rt 183 - a good clean creek road
Dryville Rd to Fleetwood Rd, East of Fleetwood - pretty crappy road, but some good spots
And then back on some roads on the South of Mt Penn such as Long Lane, Wegman, Ritters - some nice roads around there
Followed 568 home, which I've enjoyed for years

Oh, bummer. Work, storm cleanup, and travel have kept me off the bike for over two weeks. I've finally got a day with riding time carved out and I'm thinking, "Hey, I'll go snag the STN tag."  And there's no tag.   :(

Well, maybe I'll drift down towards Artemas for lunch at the Roadkill Cafe. It's a good place to go exploring. You can't spit without it landing on a good road.

Gee I hope Skee isn't somewhere in the middle of the state...  That would be a world record distance for a Bruce..

Nice grab Johnes..

That would be a nice weekend trip.

Thanks. I have only grabbed two tags but rolled up 630 miles doing so.


That sounds pretty damn good to me.

I roll up about 350 miles on average and get bruced.

If I was you – and you can be happy that I'm not– I'd stay in this game.

Now if only the sun would come out & it would warm up a little…

A little added temptation. Left to right they are Stone House Stout, Mother's Milk and Paleo IPA.

It was a really nice ride up to Slippery Rock this morning,  I've dropped two different tags close enough to get them in the same picture frame but this is the first time I've picked up two tags at the exact same spot  :D

Tag!

(http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h31/pavtwin/s5002025.jpg)

next tag will be up before long so if you're close to the North Country Brewing Company you've time to stop in for an ale before grabbing the next tag.

New Tag -

Clue: long before the North Country Brewing Company set up shop in these parts, weary travelers eat, drank and slept in this place. It was rebuilt in 1963 and is now a museum but from 1822 until 1885 this place was a stopover spot for those journeying between Pittsburgh and Erie.

We cannot always leave it to Rince if the SE guys chip in to pay for my hotel room I will not only bring it back I will bury it in the SE corner of the state for the winter.

Funny that the ADV rider Pa tag and this one are the same now. Guess its not against the "rules", but it reduces the options one has if one is playing both. Just sayin...

Not any longer, they're not.  I did a double grab yesterday and dropped the ST.N tag and the ADV Rider tag in two different locations approx fifty miles apart (the ADV tag has since been moved further east).

extra clue - it's not too far away from the last tag (wanted to give LD taggers who were bruced a second chance at bringing it back east). Does that help?

No more clues needed because...

TAG!

(http://i153.photobucket.com/albums/s206/squeezer_penn/STNTAG2.jpg)


The Old Stone House near Slippery Rock.


Rince:  It's at  N41.01080 W80.00218

New tag coming up in a few minutes.

[edited to correct location]


Title: Re: **Official** ST.N PA Tag Game
Post by: squeezer on November 16, 2009, 08:25:17 pm
So, I didn't make it here until after sundown, but this should still work as the new tag:

(http://i153.photobucket.com/albums/s206/squeezer_penn/STNTAGNEW.jpg)


And, just to make this fun, I'm calling out you SEPA boys and girls. Some of you have come awfully close to complaining that you wouldn't get another shot this season because, you know, you'd have to ride all the way across the state you live in.  :(  On a motorcycle!   :eek: :( :(

Well, I felt bad you were in such a tough spot, so I've moved the tag back to the southern part of the state and significantly east. You should have at least as good a shot as our western colleagues. And if you folks can't get it, I guess all those Steeler fans are gonna call you SEPAnsies.


And here's your clue:
Imagine that you were magically transported to this road:
(http://i153.photobucket.com/albums/s206/squeezer_penn/913.jpg)

If you then rode it, BROADly speaking, to the TOP of the ridge and found a CITY, then you would also find this monument. And it would turn out that, all along, the same monument was right across the street from your place.

How can that be? Trust me. It's true.

The Old Stone House near Shippensburg. Slippery Rock

New tag coming up in a few minutes.


Good grab, squeezer  :bigok: but the folks in Slippery Rock wouldn't be too happy about being confused with Shippensburg, not that there's anything wrong with Shippensburg....

Sounds like a perfect ready-made opportunity for me to finally grab a tag; except I'm traveling on business and won't get home till Sunday night, and then I get to go back to work on Monday.  Not all bad; there's plenty of Guiness on this assignemnt. :beerchug:

Ok, then I'm most likely out.  I'm going to be playing laser tag at my girl's bday party. :D  But if that doesn't work out, then I may tag along.

The important thing is that you guys get there before those Westerners or State College guys get there!  SEPA is counting on it!

So go ahead.. take the tour, have one on me... tell um JJ sent ya.

Attn: Group Ride
Ok thanks to Jer for bring it home. We can look at grapping the prize early and burying deep in coal country. I am open to riding all day. The roads NE or NW of the tag are great and I am positive that we can bury it.

Brownstown Fire company has an all you-can-eat breakfast tomorrow that starts at 6:00 am for $7.00 a plate great benifit to the local community and common meeting place off RT772 on school lane south of Rt222. We could meet around 6:00 or 6:30 and carve the back roads to Pottsville.

Anyone else can meet us there and join in the group picture....... Let me know your thoughts........

Nice job.  I have no idea where it is, but 500 mile roundtrip makes me think it's above Scranton or something.  I hope you guys had a good ride together.


I think they may have "meandered" a bit... but its a nice tag and there are quite a few nice roads up that way

New Tag,

This is a geographic tag.. You can google map the intersection.

PA St rte 4037 Scott Center Rd and PA St rte4043 Sherman Rd

(http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z311/JamminJere/100_4789.jpg)

Your clue is, If I took one step backwards, I'd be out of bounds for the game. If I turned around,

This is what I saw...

(http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z311/JamminJere/100_4792.jpg)

Lots of great roads to get there, If you think you'll be heading that way, If you PM me I could give you a few cool twisties towards the tag... or pick your own route..

Sam, maybe this one could be yours :) sorry about the bruce's today fellas..

I'm told tomorrow will be a nice day for a ride.

Sometimes we find ourselves appreciative of things we would certainly never have selected if we had a choice.  I'm thankful for those who dedicate part or all of their lives to the protection and service of this great nation, wherever it calls us.

There isn't a Parthenon in this Pennsylvania town that shares the name of its Grecian counterpart, but there is a street which, like millions of other primary streets in towns all over the country, is named after the hair from the neck of a horse.

On that street you'll find this memorial in honor of those who have served and returned home, and those who have not returned from the middle eastern lands. Take a moment and reflect upon those you love, and what you are thankful for this season.

Because I can't make this work and look nice, here's the raw url for a High-resolution version.

If you mean the bridge by N Farmersville Rd and Turtle Hill Rd, I know exactly what you mean - there was only about 24" of clear road between flooded areas, at 6:45am yesterday.  The roads were all wet and shitty so I didn't come on it at much speed.

Didn't place this one too far away, as the sun was on it's way down.
Didn't want to get caught in the dropping temps, with water on the roads.

I had no trouble in finding the marker.

My problem was the fact that they had thrown salt and cinders down on Indian Marker Rd, between Safe Harbor Rd and River Road. That was a white knuckle couple of miles, considering that some spots also had a fair amount of slush in the roadway.

Yes, it was a great day for a ride. Gear is working ok. I don't have any lower heat yet, other than blister packs in my boots, and didn't need it either. Socks would be nice though. I think I need some hand wings or hippohands for sub 25 deg. weather. My hands were a little cool at times.

Shane,
yeah you gotta get the wind off them digits when its this cold.  I love the hippohands now that I "modified" them a bit and made them more rigid with plastic inside the middle panel. Low heat on the grips and my summer gloves is all I need to stay toasty, even in the teens, at highway speed.

YO- PA taggers------be careful of the deer up in the Northeast area. It's strange.....I NEVER see deer after buck season ends.
This year is different for some reason. They are very active and I've had THREE NEAR MISSES with my Jeep in the past
24 hours.

you boys play careful. watch the gravel too. seeing a lot of that also up here, but
the roads actually looked pretty good today.

Not a chance in hell, only hit low 20's today, I'm sure it stayed in the low teens up there. I'm think'in that tag is safe until we get our week or two long January thaw, that they never get up there!  :lol:

Air temp 24; wind speed 65mph; real feal wtf am I doing!!!!

I guess the tag will be there until there is a freakishly warm day.  It wasn't too bad once I slowed down to 40mph but that would have doubled my saddle time and it would be real dark before I got home.

If it is going to be likethis for awhile (and I think it will) there should be snow on the roads so I won't even think about riding :crazy:

Hey Alex.  The war memorial tag I got was in Lanesboro, Pa.  That is next to the state line and near Binghamton, NY

Sodapop...the page 43 memorial is on N. Main St in Athens, PA.  Its a couple miles from the the NYS line and 45 minutes west of Binghamton, NY. I believe you may be thinking of the prior tag that I picked up about 13 miles east of Lanesboro.



Sam...unless I'm extra stupid this morning, I don't see any way to identify your tag unless you've been there before.  I can catch some simple clues, but they don't narrow it down very much.  Is there some big clue smack dab in the photo that I'm missing?

It was cold...'specially going up over Cortez Rd. through the state game lands + down into that valley.
Up over Moosic Mt. was a real treat too up by the windmills....I don't think it went over 17-20° up that way.
It was 18° when I left my place today....I don't have an on-board thermo but I'm sure it was colder in the hills....

Ok guys I have to apologize for this tag, It's pretty lame but the best I could do today as I was hustling into work
after grabbing the tag. Snow is forecast for the next 4-5 days so I don't think I'm going to get any road time in over the holiday
to set up a respectable tag. Anyway here it is.

Define today.  :bigok:  It's too late for me to head out today.  Plus the state road I live off of is still covered in snow every 100 feet from the snow blowing off the fields.   I'm just plotting for when I can make my move on it.  I really need to string two days together to get this tag and then plant it where I have in mind.  :firedevil:

Also not too mention we've been getting the lake effect snow everyday for a week.  I think tomorrow may be the first day in a week I won't have to shovel the driveway.  Then we have another storm coming in Thursday night.

What Tim said, "black ice all over the place".  You gotta be carefull, snow squalls, frozen runoff, and slimy salt & cinders, not pretty.
It's only a few miles for me but it's just too slippery, not worth it.  Weatherman is saying might get above freezing next week, so maybe?
If you decide to go for it this week send me a PM for my cell no. if you want, just in case it gets ugly, good luck. :thumbsup:

Sammy's right. I'd wait. It's too unpredictable up here. Calling for on/off crap for the next 4 days too.
Even last week when I got the tag, if I had to do it again, I wouldn't.
There were some back roads I was shitting my pants on, some roads I shouldn't have been on with the big Connie, but I made it uneventfully, but had to proceed with
EXTREME CAUTION in more than a few places. You have to go over some serious elevation changes to get up into this area from any direction too.

Might be different on a DS bike with knobbies.

Don't mean to lecture; you all are big boys, but don't want to see anyone wipe out for a photo.

True but for me I'd be going DOWN in elevation.  :twofinger:

Any of the locals can feel free to grab the tag and bring it further south or west before I come get it.  :p

I have been away for a while and never really posted much anyway.

But seeing this thread and then popping to the end and seeing The Alliance Landfill as the location in "waiting"  I couldn't believe it.

Of course there is ZERO chance I will be able to go get a pic there since the VFR is in the basement and snowbound till spring.

Con Pilot1, more power to ya out riding to The Monestary in this weather.  I am officially humbled.

Hey! Another local STN'R. Cool. We'll have to get Sammy + you + me together for a cuppa one of these days when we can ride again....

ConPilot,

 I have been on STN since, heck, 2001 or so. I just lurk most of the time.

Getting together would be cool; however unlikely. But I will try to keep my options open this summer.

I am at one of those points in life where riding must take a backseat. 5 year old and 8 month old will be taking up at least one more summer of riding. But thats kids for ya.

I'll look for you on the road though, most of my riding is just commuting anymore, riding 13k a year like the old days is on hold.  

Ride safe.

Kirk

Actually it was about noon.  I went the wrong direction when I got to Keyser Road and almost missed it completely.  That being said I just made it home in one piece after 450 miles today.  The bike looks like I rode the Haul Road.  Once I get the new tag up you may see why.

And without further ado:  This was actually a backup tag spot since I was running out of daylight to get to my original spot.  It also looked like there was more weather moving in so I had to beat feet to get home.

The photo should be more than enough of a clue.

It's a crappy long boring ride if I slab it, or a fun long twisty ride taking the back roads. This time of year I have no choice, has to be slab city. :(   :thumbsdown:
Sodapop has the correct date as far as the roads being fairly clean and being able to ENJOY the ride...

Tagged. Punchdude & AcMotto.

Swigart Auto Musuem
12031 William Penn Highway
Hundington, PA 16652

This tag is in honor of Shane Smoker. We ran across Shane in Mifflin just after he encountered bike trouble. Shane would have bruced us by about an hour or two if he had not had electrical issues. We offered to run with Shane back home but he insisted we go for the tag. Happy to say he made it home safe.

It was a day filled with ice running across roads, a turkey crossing, flying chickens, a frozen gas cap, near grit wipeouts, Shane walking across a Sheetz parking lot 120 miles from home and whatever else I forgot. 325 miles for the day...all so Cablebandit does not bury the tag for the winter... :twofinger:

It's all good. Blew a main fuse from my amatuer wiring of the fuse block. I limped home with no headlights and no heat, but it was ok, wasn't THAT cold today. I found the problem, fixed it, I'm GTG.

Jack and Tony, thanks for offering to fly home with me, glad you had a good ride.

I"m glad to see the comraderie of the STN fellow riders, Shane called me from along the road, we discussed his problems, Cablebandit was ready to run from State College to him if needed... Punchdude and AcMotto were ready to abandon the tag to wingman him home, again, if needed...

I had good luck with mostly dry roads and only small drifts getting the tag and the new tag...  But then I took a side road and came upon some bad blowing drifts, which were ok until I came upon a drift with 3" snow cover.  It would have been ok if I'd have turned around at that point, but I didn't.  Luckily I only need a new rear brake lever.  The pillion peg mount and one bar end got ground down a bit, the handlebar needed straightening and the indicator only needed snow removal and reassembly, but otherwise it's ok.  

Oh well, I'm an idiot - at least I got a pic!  :lol: :nuts:

BTW - warning on the new Tag.  The northern approach is pretty treacherous for a bike, with a handful of bad drifts with ice that reach across the whole road.   Take caution that way!  The southern approach is pretty well clear as of Sunday.  The deep drift that bit me isn't anywhere near the tag.

Sammy thanks for the invite but I got stuff I gotta do tomorra........

Connie's front tire isn't quite up to snuff so I don't think I'm gonna be out much till I get new skins on her anyway...
probably just a jaunt to work here and there that's about it. I have a pressure leak and I'm not sure where it's coming from,
prolly the old valve stems that are on there, who knows. I'm not going to sweat it because I'm getting new skins very soon...

I find if I don't know the destination..a little google search is your friend. I just put in  "A private Lake Resort Community" and it popped up as the second search hit. I even checked out that it would work before I posted the clue...

Chris loves the rain... He's toured thru entire states like Kentucky and WV in one solid downpour. Doesn't phase him 1 bit.. He likes it more with bald tires and a loose chain.. Rainsuit?.. Never saw him wear one.  :hail:

In his absence... this weekend, I will try my best to tour thru some of the better North Woods roads and show them... The way they were shown to me... when I was anew..

I'll miss ya this weekend Cablebandit!...

36 hour rule?

#2a - New tag must be placed within 36 hours. If new tag is not set, the first Bruce posted gets the tag. If no Bruce was claimed, tag will revert to the previous tag, and somebody else will get their chance. If you won't have the time to drop it off, don't pick it up to begin with.

Someone please chime in here, but I believe Jesse now has the tag.

b.) There's nothing up there I want to see...(I'm sure everything after the Zippo Lighter Museum would just be a let-down :lol:)
c.) Did I mention I've had my fill of Rt. 80 yet?  :crazy:

Yeah I know there are other roads I could take but that would turn it into a three day trip probably. I should have brought it further back from Bradford to eastern PA when I had the chance.

New Tag.  :pope:  

Chris - Thanks for fixing my busted link.  Tagging on the BBerry isn't the best. I may be out west again sometime in June.  Maybe we can catch up and plan a ride...

1,200 mile weekend weaving through PA, WV & MD with lots of scenic 40 thrown in on the way out and as far Northwest as Presque Isle during a day ride. We rode 666 which was very cool. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to fit the tag in once the trip was back on but we made it happen.  Grove City is a great little town.

MrSticky...It was nice to meet you  :p

Sam - Sorry. This is the first chance I had to post up. We didn't have signal much of the day.

Does anyone need a clue?


According to my two teenage daughters...I am clueless most of the time so I wouldn't want to deviate from their impression.

Anyhow...it's an old stone house in the Lancaster area...how hard could that be to find?  :crazy:

2a - New tag must be placed within 36 hours.

If new tag is not set, the first Bruce posted gets the tag.

If no Bruce was claimed, tag will revert to the previous tag, and somebody else will get their chance. If you won't have the time to drop it off, don't pick it up to begin with.

The credit for this tag goes to ZZR12  (even though I planned the route, got us lost, brought the camera, was on time etc...) :pokestick:
In his defense, he did buy snacks at Wawa   :bigok:

 

The points I freely give to Busapilot for the heroic sacrifice of his Kawi in homage to the game!

This is the only other photo that was even recognizable as the monument and motorcycles... it's hard to get a good photo at night with a point and shoot camera!  Next time, I'll bring the DSLR.

See that's the difference between BlackBird riders and FZ1 riders :headscratch:. I know what your thinking, :shrug: the FZ1 is a race inspired, finely honed sport touring weapon compared to the XX, although true, its not my point, :nono: it's our total disregard for rules and regulations in order to get the pic, :twofinger: hell we just ride up the curb and snatch the pic, BlackBird riders park legally (that's not a shot a Smoker) and take there pictures, and probably kiss a few baby's along the way. By the way, great spot to drop the new tag.

The new tag will be eaten taken shortly, I'm sure!  That's a popular destination for your generation.


Doh! Patty asked me why there was so many Triumph Motorcycles in the parking lot and now it makes sense.

Clue: The person in whose honor this park is named was born in Scotland and died in western Pennsylvania after a storied political and military career that included being President of the Continental Congress. He is buried here but it's no longer a cemetery and is now a popular park and summer concert venue.

A closed elementary school in Elders Ridge in Armstrong County. Elders Ridge is a very small place without a big internet presence, not on a major route and not widely known even by people living within thirty miles of the place, heck lots of people living ten miles from it have never heard of it.  I usually swing by it on my way to route 286 and points east, it's on a nice connector road running from 56 to 286.

I believe that is a no no.  Someone will get it sooner or later.  Usually someone (hint Cablebandit) from midstate will ride out and bring it east.  Until then just go riding and looking for places to drop the tag next year when the western folks get it again.

Chris, did you take I-81 north between Scranton - WB.?  I saw a shinny Connie about 11'ish, I was heading South I-81 and thought it might be you...
I hope you rode some of the nice roads in the area around the park, not a bad area. I try and put my TAGS were the roads are less traveled and twisty! :bigok:


Title: Re: **Official** ST.N PA Tag Game

Yup...probably me.  I beat feet to get out there figuring somebody would grab it today, then took the more scenic route home.  The only problem this time of year was riding directly into the sun the whole way home.  I decided just to drop it on my way home rather than take it to the special out of the way place I had in mind.  Not enough sunshine this time of year to get there.  400 miles round trip so it was a nice day of riding.

This modern inn, unique to Pennsylvania’s park system, focuses on outdoor recreation and stewardship, making maximum use of green building technologies, while serving as a premier interpretive facility for bird watching.

new tag:
This popular South Central PA downtown eatery is located just north of the intersection of two masculine royal streets. It also shares it's name with one of those streets. If you’ll reflect on the photo a bit you’ll get a hint of the entertainment venue across the street.


(http://i853.photobucket.com/albums/ab99/gslayman/Motorcycle/tag2010-10-12.jpg)

As a bonus, if the lovely young lady in the photo happens to be working in the eatery (ask for Kylie) when you pick up this tag she’ll be happy to pose in your photo and provide a cup of coffee for the princely sum of free. And if you pick this up around breakfast time, I recommend the  baked oatmeal. Also if you are into art, the gallery above the cafe has some very nice originals in various media.

Sorry Sam, I wanted to make sure I met rule 2a. Chalk it up to a first time player.  The roads in the immediate vicinity are not too fun unless you consider dodging manhole covers and other associated city road hazards, fun.
And DosEquis is correct. Fulton, not Futon.

I gotta get back in the game.  First I gotta start riding again.

I went by both of the last 2 tags on Sunday; in the car, shopping with family.   I was thinking I should be out riding.  We took the scenic route home – I got this thing for waterfalls and covered bridges.  Unfortunately, there’s no way you can tote 3 cases of wine back from Delaware on a Wee (although I wouldn’t be surprised if they fit in the side cases on a flying pig – LOL – that would help them stay down!).

I must ride 233 forty or fifty times a year, and I didn't even realize that sign was there. I had even read the story about the three girls years ago. Guess I should slow down and take in the scenery.

Here's a sign I have never ridden past and not noticed!

Thanks. She's basically stock, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I credit the lighting for such a nice picture. I've been watching the game for some time, but every time I wanted to jump in, something came up. When cablebandit dropped a tag right in my backyard, I figured it wouldn't get any easier and I had better not let it slip away. I do a good bit of riding from my place in Cumberland County to see family in Chester County, so hopefully I can move the game back towards you Philly area guys in the future.

I am picking this tag because on April 8, 2001, Firefighters Tony Murdick and Scott Wilson of this department entered the rain swollen Slippery Rock Creek just above McConnell's Mill in an effort to rescue a kayaker who had capsized in the swift water. The Mill was a tag back on page 20. All three perished ten years ago last Friday.

What a shame and what a terrible  loss.

To a much lesser extent, the weather today is a shame too. I was really hoping to finally get out and ride after a long and very busy winter. Fair warning though...the bike is un-winterized, freshly inspected and and I just changed the the winter air in my tires to new spring air. Hopefully I'll be back in the game soon.  :thumbsup:

Hey JJ

It was more due to poor planning as we did not think we could make the event due to other issues. Then Saturday we decided to take the ride out at a leisurely pace. The other problem was we had no reservations so we had to search around but before that we swung by the Days Inn parking lot. That is where Rincewind proceeded to flip us off and gave us the signal to keep moving. I don't have to tell you how he acts when he drinks. We did go to Denny's  but did not spot any of the sport-touring crowd. I guess there is always next year. :)

While the tag is temptingly close to the office the forecast says rain. The laptop does not have a waterproof bag.  I will not be riding to work this week.

I intended to go get it last night, but... well, see the DEL/first-state photo tag thread for why I never made it.  :facepalm:

Frenchy I read your post above. Rule #6 of motorcycling is "always hide a spare key on your bike somewhere". I am sorry for your troubles dude. What a way to wreck a good day out riding.  :thumbsdown: Glad you and the scoot made it home though.

Tire's fixed, seat is popped off the bike, I need to buy a new lock for my Givi case, but the GPS and sunglasses and gloves are out of it. Now I need to call the dealer and see what my options for getting a key are.

Or, I hit ebay for a new lockset for an SV.



Sorry to hear about the key and hopefully it can be resolved shortly. The last few used bikes I purchased have come with just one key so I have had another made up for an emergency.

That is my good looking wife.  She had a lot of firsts today.  It was her first time riding her own bike over 55mph and on the interstate.  Also it was her first tag participation and first time riding her own bike over 200 miles at once.  It was pretty exciting for the both of us. :)

It does take a special road to do it.... A lot of dirt bike experience doesnt hurt either.  :D  The road we were on the one day was near the PA/MD border..  More whoops than a moto-park... The landings aren't that harsh if you time them to hit on the downhill between the whoops.  Oh yeah..  The third thing required is either huge nuts or lack of common sense on a 600+pound motorcycle :rolleyes: :facepalm:

I've got a crazy busy week, with this one being the last week of little league, but it was too close to pass it up. Plus it was not >200 miles away so I knew Cablebandit wouldn't bother with it   :lol:, so that just left AHD43 , MM and I as the only "locals" in the game.

New tag. Quick easy access off of 322 for you SEPA guys. Plus if you pick it up during the week before 2pm, keep going up the gravel road and stop in and say hi. All the water you can drink will be on the house :D

This is Chief Cornplanter of the Seneca Indian Tribe's final resting place.  He and other members of his tribe were moved here due to the flooding of the valley below.

There are two ways to get here, by boat, and by an access road from a neighboring state.

I am campiing in washington pa this week but we did trailer the bikes. I was wondering if it would be a party foul to grab the tag one day while riding and place it before heading back later in the week.

I am not sure if we will get over that way but I figured that I would ask just in case.

Post by: ChrisZRX on August 02, 2011, 08:16:43 am
I rode through several brief but heavy down pours (and a few sun showers) to get there.  Consequently, those dirt roads were muddy and slippery.  You can see how dirty my bike is. No problem, I've dual sported the Bandit before.

I came across that cute little church en route to Sunfish Pond before I encountered any rain.  Notice the difference in cleanliness.

No, didn't do any fishing, but I can tell it would be a good place for that.

Far superior to other brands, :cool: worth the price differential IMO. :thumbsup:  I can taste corn syrup in the cheaper stuff.  :thumbsdown:

Anyway, It's a great ride north from the bridge crossing at Duncannon, 849 to 34 then SW to 274 to 74 N to 35 and 235 and that will take you up to the South Branch Middle Creek in Spring Township, Snyder County.  Not the most direct route, but you will enjoy the ride.  Rest of you folks from other parts of PA will just have to find it on your own.
