This is a slightly modified version of Bluepoof's game, the boundries and number of pictures you can post are different. If you still don't understand how this game works, go read a few pages of the original Norcal thread: https://www.sport-touring.net/forums/index.php/topic,2322.0.html


The Rules:
* Photos must be within 100 paved road miles of City Hall Downtown L.A.

* To start, someone posts a photo of their bike with a landmark, sign, etc.  Clues can be given along with the photo.

* Individually (or as a group if you're so motivated), other participants ride to the same place and get a photo with THEIR bike at the same spot.  

* The first person to "tag" the photo by posting their photo then posts up to two more photos for people to find. You only need to tag one photo to post your own. Untagged photos remain in play till tagged.

If no one is able to identify the tag, the poster can give progressively easier clues until someone finally says "AHA!" though please don't post the location of the tag until after someone else has tagged it.  The scavenger hunt is part of the fun.  


First target location:

Well, I have some guesses, but  that's all they are.
Mainly I'm posting to bump this up.

Another bump.  Can't say where it is, but it looks a bit like the hairpin where a helped a gal pick up her Ducati last year (somewhere in the hills behind Angeles Crest Highway, toward Mt. Emma).

That neck of the woods was my guess, too.

Well, I didn't take the pic, so this info may not be 100% accurate, but it's been suggested that the photo is somewhere in Ventura County. That narrows it down, eh?

I found a site that overlays google maps with county boundaries. Use zip code 93001.

Um, guys?  Seems like there's a lot of armchair photo-tag in SoCal.  The idea is to ride there and take a picture, not post where you think it is   Lol Rolleyes Razz

Oh, well nobody ever explained the rules to me.  Shouldn't we be geocaching a dead body and carving our intials on it or something as proof?

 Lol Lol Uh, yeah... I guess it's my fault. I assumed that people would have seen poofy's thread and or take a look at it to see how the game works. Oh well, I swiped her rules and pasted 'em in the top of this thread...  Embarassment

Yeah, sorry, again. I'm lame.
Though I'll freely pull the drunk card. The start of this thread was clearly a late-night drunken post. You of clear morning minds should have caught that important fact.
Too late, it's already fixed.  Lol

Though there's a freebie for the (hiccup) starter of the SoCal thread. I may be heading up that way this weekend. Any competitors for the (non-satellite) tag of this location?

Here's a couple other photos from the tag location. What a great day for a ride!
My shitty camera really doesn't do the view justice...

Steven V's original photo, poison target circled, you'll see below...

I made a slight modification to the rules to speed things up a bit by putting more tag targets into play at once.

* The first person to "tag" the photo by posting their photo then posts up to two more photos for people to find. You only need to tag one photo to post your own. Untagged photos remain in play till tagged.

Here's my two:

This would be a lot more interesting if there were some identifiable landmarks in these pics. Road and chaparral could be anywhere in So Cal.
