Title: WildGuzzi Tag-O-Rama
Post by: john fish on August 18, 2019, 06:47:54 PM
There's an interesting game on ADVRider.com called tag-o-rama.  Various states have them in the regional forums and the Scooter forum does an interesting variation.  Here's the rules, stolen and modified from ADV:

https://advrider.com/f/threads/scooter-tag-an-excuse-to-ride.972287/

Rules

A player posts a Tag photo showing his/her bike (doesn't have to be a Guzzi) in front of a location that will be the tag. Player shall state what in the photo is to be tagged. Example - a Church, a Monument, a Sign. The tag should be something that can be found at other locations, it should not be a unique location that other players cannot find. The object is to ride and have fun, NOT to try and stump other players from finding a matching tag.

To grab a tag, another player must post a photo of his bike in front of a location as identified in the tag, i.e. a different Church or Monument or Sign.

The player who "grabs" the tag then gets to "drop" the next tag at a different location with a different specified tag.  For example, If I place the first tag at a mural, you will ride to a different mural and take a picture of your bike in front of it.  Then, you ride to a different "tag" of your own choosing, it could be anything from a sign to a church or post office or whatever (be creative) and take a photo of your bike in front of it and post that photo here (drop the tag).  Describe what in the photo is the actual tag.

HE WHO POSTS FIRST WINS. It does not matter who got to it first, He who posts first wins the tag.

If a player "grabs" a tag in good faith, it's good. Post the next tag, no need to ask it it's good.

File Photos may be not be used.  A file photo is any photo taken prior to the posting of the current tag.

The purpose of the game is to get out and ride so, get out and grab a tag!

Keep the game moving - if you make a Grab, post the next Tag so that play can continue.  While you are out riding, take some photos you can use as a Tag so you can post them after you make a grab.


I have no idea if this will work here or not or if it's just a stupid idea.  :)   Sometimes, it's fun to have a goal when you go for a ride.  Also, I like seeing photos of different bikes and places.  I'll start the game -

Large mural:

Edit:  locations might be nice, too.  That's in Buckhannon, WV.

I'd say it's close enough.  :smiley: What's your tag?
Title: Re: Guzzi Tag-O-Rama
Post by: bad Chad on August 19, 2019, 11:18:53 AM
Okay, maybe I'm looking at this from another perspective.   I guess if you want to say a kids playground is close enough to a gym, right out of the box I think we are setting this up to go off the rails quite rapidly.  If we are going to play fast and loose with the concept, I suspect it will quickly degenerate into just another pic thread, and lose the game part.   Even more important, is the need to make all pics present day.  We can all sit back and pull pics from times past to match up, but then that kills the whole adventure point right?  I thought the idea was that the player sees the most recent pic, say of a mural, then goes out and finds a different mural takes a pic of his bike with it, then goes to another location in short order and takes a pic of his/her bike with an ocean or such.  That way it keeps evolving in real time.   Many of us won't be able to play every or even most rounds, for instance I live days away from the nearest ocean, so it would need to be someone who could bop over to the coast and take a pic and post it, and go on to another place.

Pulling  pics from the past kills the fun for me, am I out of line on this?

What's up with you guys?  At least 1/4 of the users of this site are retired, IE they don't have jobs!   Why aren't we getting more folks playing?  At this point 488 looks have been taken at this thread, and a pathetic 5 of us have actually made an attempt to play.  Let's go girls, its fun and easy, it gives you a destination instead of wondering aimlessly around the highways and byways of the world!   None of us care who wins, in fact the way I think we are playing there might not be any winner, but lets play for the fun of it.  Don't pay any attention to the time restrictions shown in the rules, we are Guzziesta, we don't have time for time restrictions!

Old cemetary, eh? Gots one.
(https://static.imgzeit.com/reduced/9c5dcb4857cc5f58/IMG_20190825_145548697.jpg)
this is where my old friend Bill rests. He helped me build two airplanes just for the experience. Brought his lunch every day, just like a job.  :grin: For years. (!) Without him, I would never have finished the Great Lakes project.
After he died, at memorial day, I found a die cast DC3 to put on his gravestone.
(https://static.imgzeit.com/reduced/485bf50f38dd9ee2/IMG_20190825_145630961.jpg)
Set it into the prevailing wind, and the props were turning when Dorcia and I left. Thought, "Cool."
The next year, it was still there. (!!) Nobody had molested it, and the wind hadn't blown it away. I rode back, prepped the stone, and JB welded that sucker on there. Over the years, the plastic props have gone away, but the venerable old DC3 is still soldiering on, just like in real life.
Bill loved airplanes, and it's a great one.

Ok, for the tag, how about an antique gas pump?

Yeah. I can't understand why it isn't more popular.

Now I know there is an old gas pump at Nerriga but I've got some hideous disease at the moment and don't want to ride 90k each way only to end up with pneumonia. I didn't try for the cemetery one. That was too easy. I could do it from my verandah! :laugh:

Dorcia just got over a case of "walking" pneumonia.. I think a better term would be "staggering." Dave the Doc says it's called walking because you're not in the hospital with an IV in your arm. Take care, Pete.

The BMW guys are right.  Guzzis owners are poseurs who don't ride.   :evil: :grin:

For me, this thread is working as intended.  It's a long weekend and I need to finish mowing the lawn, paint a windowsill, and bbq up some dinner.  Figured I'd grab a tag before I got started by riding to the antique pumps that are about 10 miles up the road in Blacksville, West by god Virginia and come back home.

Couple hours riding and one beer later. . .

Well, the point is that you do have to ride to the new tag.  :)   No old photos.  So, you have to ride somewhere and find us something to hunt for. 

Have fun with it.  Hell, you can take a photo of your bike in front of your garage and call that a tag.  :)

Yep.  To play:

1) Check the last photo and the tag descriptor.  i.e.  "bike at bar or brewery"
2) Ride to bar/brewery and take a photo.
3)  Post photo of your bike at the tag (bar or brewery in this case)
4)  Ride someplace else and take a photo.
5)  Post photo of your bike at new tag with a descriptor.  Something like bike at post office or tanning salon.  :)
6)  Chill.  You've temporarily won the innerwebs.

Enjoy.  It's just a game meant to give yinz an excuse to go out and ride and interact with WG geezers.

Due to security in Lower Manhattan itís hard to get close to some places since 9/11.  As it was, the cops were right behind me and they were quite suspicious.

Just for background:

ďFraunces Tavern is a landmark museum and restaurant in New York City, situated at 54 Pearl Street at the corner of Broad Street. The location played a prominent role in history before, during and after the American Revolution, serving as a headquarters for George Washington, a venue for peace negotiations with the British, and housing federal offices in the Early Republic. It has been owned since 1904 by Sons of the Revolution in the State of New York Inc., which carried out a major conjectural reconstruction, and claim it is Manhattan's oldest surviving building. The museum interprets the building and its history, along with varied exhibitions of art and artifacts. The tavern is a tourist site and a part of the American Whiskey Trail and the New York Freedom Trail.Ē

Well, the only historic tavern around here is frequented by serial killers so I went for a bridge.  It's not the Brooklyn Bridge so I did a two-fer.

Oyster Creek Bridge was built in 1924 on what was then Pacific Hwy 1.

https://bridgehunter.com/wa/skagit/oyster-creek/ (https://bridgehunter.com/wa/skagit/oyster-creek/)

It is just north the Blanchard Bridge that was built in 1931 over tidewater and the Great Northern Railroad.  The red house at the north end is where Edward R. Murrow grew up.

If Blackcat judges this to be sufficient, here's the next tag.

A historic plaque about 100 years old (or more).  It could be a builder's plate or similar.  Bonus points if the combined age of plaque and bike is greater than 180 years!   :evil:

"Dedicated to the memory of Governor Lister by the Ladies Improvement Club of Edison, Wash."  Apparently the ladies of Edison were Rough!   :boozing:

I can't find a date - it may have been placed when the road was finished in 1916 or after Lister died in 1919.

Not at all. All part of the game! As it turns out after bagging the noodle (!) my intended tag was unavailable, and a dinner date was beckoning. I'll leave that tag for my next try. Oldest marker in this young metropolis is 1946. I may have to take a pass. Perhaps some Europeans could snag this next one?
Hereís the noodle.

Evil  :evil: indeed. You guys are gonna get me in trouble.

If this is in part the intent of this exersize, mission accomplished. Not being a native Hoosier, I couldn't accept the lack of an old enough marker, did some homework, and viola.

Found out about a marker which you can read about here....
https://historicindianapolis.com/lincoln-spoke-here-the-marker/

Originally placed in 1907, but relocated several blocks away in 1967, when it's host structure was demolished. commemorating a speech given by Abraham Lincoln from a hotel balcony. the Bates Hotel..yup, can't make this stuff up...is long since demolished.

In order to grab this tag I had to illegally drive around a barricade onto a pedestrian only sidewalk. There was a Capitol police cruiser not 30 yards away, and I wasn't comfortable so I'm not happy with the pic, but the gauntlet was thrown...

(https://i.imgur.com/k4RzIIJ.png)

Similar story for my next tag. This area is closed when events are not happening, and no auto access exists when they are. In this case there was an occupied guard vehicle, and as I took the photo, the windows dropped and I was told my bike couldn't be there.

the tag: Any professional racing venue.

Here's one you may have heard of before...

(https://i.imgur.com/lmgShku.png)

edit to add, combined age of tag and bike, only 131 years. sorry. If I was in NH I coulda nailed it.

Well, it is in Holbrook Pennsylvania which is in the heart of Pennsyltucky, so it wouldn't surprise me.  But it's not in this case.  Just a picnic pavilion.  Lovely little church, so someone grabbing the tag will get extra (non-existent) points for cute country church.

Incidentally, what type of jet is that?  F-86?  Famous collector/hoarder in Blacksville, West by god Virginia. The old gas pump tag that I got is right next to that plane.  Rumor is that he also has one of the first cars made in America down there somewhere.

Abandoned restaurant (Red Apple Rest) that we use to stop at on a weekend motorcycle trips about 12-15 years ago that hasnít been in business since that time. It use to be a bustling enterprise in the 20ís-30ís-40ís-50ís-60ís as a bus stop for those going to the Catskills out of NYC. Otherwise known as the Borscht Belt where comedians, singers etc. entertained those escaping the city for the summer. 
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borscht_Belt

Anyway, the photo has to be an abandoned establishment that you personally used on a motorcycle day trip or whatever.

While they were cutting the aluminum, I ran up town to see if I could find a tag. Hmm, a nice mural, but we've done that.
Started home, and stopped at a Muffler Man. These boys were born in California, and have migrated all over the country. Originally, they held mufflers out, and were at.. ta da.. muffler shops. They've fallen onto hard times, though, and will be found selling about anything now.

We have some mid-coast Mainers on this board. I happen to know that there is a restaurant on Rt 1 up theyuh, that's got a 40 food cooked lobsta coming over the roof to assault the leafpeepers waiting in line for their lobsta roll... that'd be a good 'un....

They aren't that hard to find Chuck.  I don't think you need to water it down.  There are lot's of muffler men and women still standing, most likely just in US though.   I think it's ok if it takes days to find, but sooner or later a giant will pop up, I know were to find one, but it will take me till next week to get there!  If someone beats me great, if not, I think you'll like what I find.

Yeah, somewhere in my archives, I have a Spaceman muffler man from the Chicago area. Just the same, this is a world wide community, and everyone should have a chance at all the prizes for winning.

Decided I needed to make a prop hub for a homebuilt airplane, so ran to my material supplier about an hour away. Naturally, I took the freighter.. :smiley:
While they were cutting the aluminum, I ran up town to see if I could find a tag. Hmm, a nice mural, but we've done that.
Started home, and stopped at a Muffler Man. These boys were born in California, and have migrated all over the country. Originally, they held mufflers out, and were at.. ta da.. muffler shops. They've fallen onto hard times, though, and will be found selling about anything now.
https://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/37422
This is a "Bunyan" type for the tag.

I realize there aren't muffler men in other countries, so *any* unusual roadside attraction would be fine.
Hey, Kidsmoke.. there used to be one in Indy.. maybe still is?
Oh, the prop hub? Here it is.. some assembly required.  :grin:

So, all of the above is in Waynesburg, PA.  Thanks, Charlie.  I never knew that this little park and it's huge monument were within 30 miles of my home until I saw your tag and googled 'monuments near me'.  It's an impressive monument.

https://www.heraldstandard.com/gcm/news/local_news/greene-county-statues-honor-local-u-s-history/article_14cfe9a8-a818-5e25-8dcd-b20a130f19e7.html

According to Younger, the time period when the statue was dedicated took place during the Spanish American War, the first major war since the Civil War.

The statue is topped with Lady Liberty, and according to Younger, the two items she is holding represent the message the monument was telling about the period.

ďAn olive branch and the wreath. The olive branch is higher than the wreath. The wreath in ancient Greek history represents victory and the olive branch is famously known as symbolizing peace,Ē Younger said. ďLady Liberty is holding the wreath, but above that wreath is an olive branch and she is looking in the direction of the south. This represents the peace that was desired between the north and south.Ē


Sorry, I couldn't get closer to the monument.  I was going to ride up the path, ala Kidsmoke, and get a photo but there was this woman with a really judgemental looking dog, so. . .

Tough one. Rode to a park where there used to be a locomotive. Unfortunately, like many parks right now, they'd lost their funding, and the engine had been moved up north. Grumble grumble..
Remembered there is a "dinner train" in Atlanta, so ran by there. Fortunately, I was in time.  :grin:

Since getting the Fascist (1937) bacon slicer running I've enjoyed the irony of using it to deliver our ballots.  So how about a tag with your Guzzi at a ballot drop box or polling place?

No voting going on in Maryland this year. When it is, the polling place is just the local volunteer fire department.

Didn't think of that.  Guess some states are smarter!  Here we've got a raft of state-wide measures, some state offices and a bunch of local ones.

How far are you from Gettysburg?  Maybe we can do a lateral and substitute another Pickett marker.   :laugh:

Didn't feel like going up to the mess that is Gettysburg today, just went for a lunch loop to Berkeley Springs, WV and back the long way. On one backroad near Unger, WV, I passed a place called "Farnum Colossi" and saw a giant Midas muffler man (and friends). Waaaay late with that one.

Don't know of any giant people around here, but could probably come up with a life-size Orca.  And there are some dinosaurs a couple hundred miles away (just down the road from Zillah) and more in Oregon.  Also in Oregon are a giant ground sloth and an ichthyosaur. 

Maybe someone will find a polling station or a ballot box by Tuesday, otherwise tag reverts to giant people.   :thumb:

  Generally water is treated and pumped to a 1,2,3 million gal. storage tank at or below ground level then that water is pumped to the water tower to boost the pressure and then gravity takes over to the users in town. Most are located at the highest elevation of the area. Towns without a water tower run booster stations to supply pressure to the users.

Generally in big tanks on the highest bit of ground around! Out in the Hay plains and the like there are a few towns with towers but the tall, bulbous, ones you have in the US are anathema to Aussies. To answer the question accurately I'll have to do a some research as with most public infrastructure, unless it is visibly obvious, (Or broken!) we don't tend to think about it much!

It is a bit uncomfortable when you're stuck in traffic. It's not even summer yet! It'll be 110*F in January!

Oh, in the waterspout pic that is the 'Captain Cook' waterspout at Commonwealth Park in Canberra. The Lake, named after the man who designed Canberra, Walter Burley-Griffin, is man made and the fountain was a gift from Betty the Boxhead on the fiftieth anniversary of federation.

The buildings in the background are, from left to right, hiding in the spray the High Court of Australia, the white one is Questacon a science discovery hub principally for kids and the boring looking block on the right is the National Library. All if these, along with old and new Parliament houses and a variety of government departmental buildings are all in what is known as the 'Parliamentary Triangle' in the centre of Canberra which is the National Capital and seat of Federal Government. Not Sydney which is what most people from outside of Oz think! :D The main thing that singles Canberra out, apart from the large number of scroll beetles employed by the federal bureaucracy, is that it is stinking hot in summer and perishingly cold in winter! The site was originally chosen because it was far enough from the sea that warships of any hostile nation couldn't shell it!

There is no charge for these useless facts! :boozing:

The main thing that singles Canberra out, apart from the large number of scroll beetles employed by the federal bureaucracy, is that it is stinking hot in summer and perishingly cold in winter!

I'm curious Pete, what passes for "perishingly cold" down there?
Title: Re: Guzzi Tag-O-Rama
Post by: pete roper on November 22, 2019, 12:30:35 PM
-8*C on some August mornings but it never stays that cold.

Most of our rain comes in spring and autumn, our summers are hot and dry and our winters are cold and dry. Bungendore is also on top of the Great Dividing Range at about 800 meters altitude, not a lot to those of you who live in younger continents but pretty high for Oz. In winter Australia tends to get big high pressure areas that settle over the middle of the country which leads to long clear, still periods. Where we are this means crystal clear days and nights and in winter the temperature plummets as soon as the sun goes down and by four in the morning it can be -4*C or slightly lower and then, oddly, as soon as the sun comes up the temperature will plunge another two or three degrees!

The thing is the sun is strong and because it's so clear as it gets higher in the sky, just as the temperature plunges as it goes below the horizon it will rise rapidly in the morning. By 10.00AM it will usually be above freezing and by 3.00PM it will be in the high teens and really quite pleasant! Then the sun goes down and the cycle repeats. It can do this for weeks on end!

Throughout the year on clear days when the wind isn't blowing the daily temperature swing is around 20*C, more in high summer. It's a very harsh and very dry climate.

That's in NY NY?

How is riding in the big city?  When I was younger, I felt safer on a bike than in a car in city traffic.  Just seemed like I was more aware of my surroundings and was much more nimble.

Now that I'm old and creaky, the reverse is definitely true.

No, the photo was taken in Florida.

NY city riding is really slow now that most roads have been significantly reduced due to bicycle lanes, aggressive NYPD, red light cameras, cell phone brain dead texting pedestrians and huge volume of tourists almost everywhere.

I definitely feel safer on a bike than in a car in SoCal traffic. I'm a small agile target with the availability of being between lanes to keep from getting hit from behind.

Well, as posted above with a little more info: 

"At the south end of Palafox Street is Palafox Pier and Plaza de Luna, a waterfront park overlooking Pensacola Bay. Its centerpiece is a bronze statue of Don TristŠn de Luna y Arellano, the Spanish explorer who led the effort to establish Americaís first settlement in what is now Pensacola in 1559."

I'm kinda pushing the edges here as they make or put together a product.  Man not qualify as manufacturing so I will move on to another source down the road, but it will be a boring shot as it's just a building with no name.  There is a GE wind turbine manufacturer here but all you can see is a parking lot and I'm reluctant to snap photo's in front of the place. The blades are not made here just the generator part which is quite large.

New tag is bank. Or, as in this case, repurposed bank building.

Cool old house - wow! 

Forgot that it was a house and took a photo tonight of an old building - a (repurposed) company store/territorial courthouse/jail built 1858.  Unfortunately it is not a bank.  It is the oldest masonry building in Washington state and was originally 2 stories but the tidelands were filled in around it up to the second floor.

That bike is two-tone Ford Fairlane Fabulous!

What type of paint/prep did you use on the bags? I would think it would be a nightmare trying to get anything to stick to that surface.

Thanks! I went to a color artisan, they gave me a spray primer base for plastic, then made me a can of blue metallic paint from the old Guzzi/Ducati color palette (they still have them 'cos they are car color standards, but with different names), and a generic opaque spray protector. With an expense of about 50 dollars I painted the two bags and half the top case.
The drawing was then done by handbrush by a girl that runs a bike customizer shop (the color is long-lasting, just re-coat it with the protector once a year).

Then I discovered that the only spray metallic blue the local Chinese supermarket sells is the exact hue of the original one... so with another 4 dollars I was able to finish coating the topcase...  :grin:

Peeking into one of the hangars thru the fence at this regional airport there was a beautiful yellow biplane...wish I could have seen more but I was not close enough.

Sorry, I don't.  Sooner or later I will know it or one similar.  As evidenced by the peeling paint around the gas cap, the tank needs to be repainted!

Yes, factory shield. Works well normally, but yesterday (riding into a 30+ mph headwind) I was wishing for something better. Some helmet buffeting, but not bad. Doesn't work nearly as well as the "polizia" fairing on the V700 though (but then nothing else does either).

This is George and Tom at Washington and Jefferson College in Washington, Pennsylvania. 

And if you heard some unearthly cursing around 11:00 EST it's because trying to find one's way around these Pennsylvania towns can be a right pain in the ass.  Construction.  Streets without signs.  One way streets.  Streets that curve and wend around hillsides and do NOT go the way you would expect them to when you turn onto them.

I admit to some out-loud filthy cursing.  Modular helmet and I forgot that the front was flipped up.  Sorry pedestrians, I really wasn't cursing at you.

Edit for clarity:

OK.  To put the kibosh on any questions I looked up road house:

road∑house
/ˈrōdˌhous/
Learn to pronounce
noun
noun: roadhouse; plural noun: roadhouses

    a tavern, inn, or club on a country road.


So-- alcohol and food on a country road.  No strip malls.  No chains.  Preferably a standalone structure but doesn't have to be.

Rinky Dinks is famous for it's steaks and has been around on route 19 in PA for a long time.  Since 19 was the main north/south route on this part of the east coast.

OK,IT is a Roadhouse, but it does not stand alone as requested by John Fish since it has become part of the cliff. Here is the Undercliff Bar and Grill about a mile off old 71 highway South of Joplin, MO on old Saginaw Road. Once known for spaghetti when it was Frank and Bonny's and before that Bonnie and Clyde got gas here when it was a service station and the main road across S MO. Now it is the local 'nice' biker bar.
 It has been seen on this forum before, but I don't know if it has been used as a tag.

Made from an old moped windscreen and some chrome-plated brass bar I had laying around. It was tall and kind of tombstone shaped, I masked it off and cut out the bit you see. Works well to keep the wind off my chest at 60+ without creating any buffeting.

Made from an old moped windscreen and some chrome-plated brass bar I had laying around. It was tall and kind of tombstone shaped, I masked it off and cut out the bit you see. Works well to keep the wind off my chest at 60+ without creating any buffeting.

Nice. I'll look in my good junk pile. I *hate* buffeting..

I did make it home on the Soviet POS, in spite of a comment or two form a couple of the lawn chair locals.

Funny Chuck, during the week we took driving around the bottom of the South Island we passed two p-laces that would have the pie and wooden horse tag.

The pie shop in Sringfield on the way over to the Coast has a pie shop that is acknowledged as having the best pies and the most arrogant and obnoxious owners!  They were so bad that when they dropped behind in their rent payments the locals took the opportunity to drum them out of town.

On the other side of Arthur's pass there is a cold, God-forsaken township of about half a dozen houses and a pub called Otira, where the sun never shines.  The whole town is owned by an a guy who can officially be called a "character".  On the roadside he has a pair of wooden horses and a wagon that used to haul barrels of beer to the pub.  I can see I will have to take a photo when I am next over there on the bike. (Still off the road for another three months over winter)

Thank you!  I think the truck on the left may be Model T.  Middle one might be a Mack - it has a rounded engine hood that is concave on the sides.  The one on the left is a Model A or very early '30s Ford.  There was an old Caterpillar tractor and a couple more trucks to the right.  To the left there were some trees growing up around a crane truck or something similar.  Up the hill to the right was an old bus (late '30s?) that still had paint on it and lots of trucks and road and logging equipment.  The sign said "private road" so didn't go any further.

I assume that if you had the engine balanced it wouldn't vibrate so much, plus a later Commando engine is way better made in terms of the engine cases than an early 650. Anyway, if he wants to trade two Atlas's for the Eldo that is a pretty good deal IMO. Does that include all the tin?

Sorry, I misspoke (miswrote?).  I believe he'd part trade a restored Atlas for an Eldo project.  But I heard that he had a heart attack last month so I'm definitely not going to bug him anytime soon.  Atlas' sure are pretty though.

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/12/Norton_Atlas_1967.jpg)


But something keeps me from getting rid of the Eldo project.  I finally got the shop cleaned up and have been cycling the 4 riders onto the lift for work.  When that's all done, the Beemer and Eldo projects may just get started.
Title: Re: WildGuzzi Tag-O-Rama
Post by: blackcat on July 13, 2020, 11:50:09 AM
There isn't much I can say about an Atlas other than they are bone shakers which is why I'd have to get the crank,rods and pistons balanced. Pretty bikes though. 

The one great thing about Norton is the abundance of parts for the old bikes, Andover Norton has reproduced a lot of these parts and the quality is excellent. The original headlight on my bike needed to be re-chromed and it also needed a new trim but I purchased a complete light from Andover and it was an excellent reproduction for a reasonable amount of money. Same with the front fender, it also needed to be re-chromed so I just ordered a new one and even with shipping from England the prices are reasonable. And before -, I could place an order on a Monday and usually get the order early the following week. The same part from any of the dealers in the states or Canada are more money and they all come from Andover.

D'oh! It was hot this afternoon..still no rain, so I took the G5 out to tempt Mother Nature to rain on me. Grabbed the old movie theater and got the picture by parking in a "No Parking" zone. Got a tag, and SED has beat me to the punch.  :boxing:  :grin:
The old G5s a sweetheart..she just sings.

Despite it being just a little "warm", after our monthly breakfast, I rode over to the C&O Canal/Potomac/Sharpsburg/Shepherdstown area for a grab and new tag.

Railroad trestle. Norfolk Southern, crosses from MD across the canal and river into WV.

Perhaps someone might be able to provide a bit of guidance with regard to Android. I figure it is a setting somewhere in my phone, but I seem to be unable to upload images from the phone. I can e mail them to myself then  use the puter to upload them. Trouble is that sometimes, by the time I do that, someone has already  posted a new tag.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

OK, sort of a hairpin - a big lazy one.  The road is closed for snow just out of the picture to the right, but you can see both approaches to the corner on the left and right (up hill in shadow).  At the top of the grade on the right is a much tighter turn, but not sure it's a true hairpin.

(https://i.ibb.co/HDNP2v9/IMG-9818.jpg) (https://ibb.co/HDNP2v9)



Next tag - Use a 2 pictures to demonstrate some change in location, elevation, phase etc.- could be a mileage sign and the destination (ex. Shangri-La 40 miles & Shangri-La city limit), change in climate (desert to mountains), view up and view down a valley.  I chose phase change - liquid tidewater to solid snowwater:

(https://i.ibb.co/rF0H00s/PHOTO-20200808-180438.jpg) (https://ibb.co/rF0H00s)


This is actually its new home. That clock has been wandering around Dayton for 100 years. It was originally erected on a grand old bank building right in the center of downtown, where it stood from 1920 to 1978. When that bank was demolished in favor of a somewhat grim modern version, it was moved atop an equally grim windowless factory/warehouse type building right next to an elevated section of I-75 as it passed through downtown. Being nearly eye level with the traffic, it was hard to miss.
In 2006 I-75 was widened/reconfigured for the 84th time and the building came down. The fate of the clock was a source of speculation for awhile, but it eventually turned up at a local historical park, awkwardly displayed at ground level.
So while arguably less than ideal, it's an improvement.

Yeah, if that one doesn't get bagged I have an easier one ready to go.  But it should be do-able.

Anyone know how to check train schedules?  Freight train schedules?  (never mind.  I checked and freight trains haven't run on specific schedules for a long time.)

btw, remember that tags can be reused.  Both general tags like "covered bridge" and even the specific ones pictured in any post.

Built in 1827, the original tower was the first monument dedicated to George Washington to be completed.[5] The Washington Monument in Baltimore was completed two years later, although it had been started considerably earlier in 1815. The famous Washington Monument in the District of Columbia was not completed until 1885.

The dry-laid stone tower was built on July 4, 1827, by the citizens of Boonsboro who marched to the site en masse after assembling in the town square at 7 a.m. At the end of that day, the tower stood at 15 feet (4.6 m) high on a base 54 feet (16 m) in circumference. Later that year, "after the busy season", workmen returned to complete the tower to a height of 30 feet (9.1 m).[6]

I have video! I'll post a link as soon as I upload it somewhere.

Owned and operated by Chris Wallich, son of Robert who started it back around '69-'70. My father used to make alterations and repairs to the rolling stock and other equipment for him. We (dad, brother Karl and myself) built a replica of the "Toonerville Trolley" for him in '72. We "supersized" dimensions from the scale model:

Most of the work was altering amusement park trains from 16" gauge down to 12" gauge. One I remember clearly was the Ford Model A powered streamliner. At idle in first gear, it was still too fast.

John Henry

When Robert Wallich started the railroad back in '70, the only locomotive was a Cagney live steam locomotive. But, just as full scale railroads found out decades before, steam propulsion is a lot of work. Not to mention, boiler inspections and high liability insurance premiums. It was soon replaced by one that looked like a steamer, but had a 12 hp Briggs & Stratton engine in it. I remember seeing the Cagney there when my father started doing work for him in '72, but it was sold a few years later.

One of these days, I'm going to make the trip down to Leakin Park near Baltimore to check out the Chesapeake & Allegheny Live Steamers operation. http://calslivesteam.org/index.htm

An artesian well is a water well that doesn't require a pump to bring water to the surface; this occurs when there is enough pressure in the aquifer. Same thing as a "spring"?
Title: Re: WildGuzzi Tag-O-Rama
Post by: john fish on August 28, 2020, 12:29:33 PM
Springs and Artesian Wells
Springs are often confused with flowing artesian wells. An artesian well is a hole or boring that has been drilled into a water-bearing formation or "aquifer" that is under pressure. The water in an artesian well rises above the top of the aquifer (water-bearing formation) until the pressure is equalized. In a flowing artesian well, the water rises above the ground surface and the water flows out of the well casing to equalize the pressure.


Artesian Springs
Occur when the groundwater, under pressure, finds its way to the land surface (Fig. 1).

artesian springs diagram Fig. 1

The spring flows because the pressure in the aquifer (water bearing soil or rock), which is covered by a confining layer (clay or other impervious material), is greater than atmospheric pressure at the land. A spring is formed when the water reaches the surface through a fracture or porous layer. These types of springs usually occur along faults (a fracture in the earth), or in areas of great topographic relief such as cliffs or valleys.

Gravity Springs
Are formed by water soaking into the ground until the water encounters a confining layer that will not let the water seep further down (Fig. 2). The water then flows across the top of the confining layer until it reaches the ground surface. Examples of gravity springs are springs found in hillsides or cliffs. The springs along the north shore of Lake Superior and along the Mississippi and St. Croix River Valleys are generally of this type.

I can't think of an artesian well near me either.

Beginning to see the signs of spring John.  Even with nice weather, if I break the hiatus on the rego it costs big time.  It's expensive enough as it is.  The bike is the one luxury I give myself trying to stay within the budget of being a super-annuitant.

Sounds like we should have an overlap of a month or so before things get too cold here to ride.  Our insurance runs year round here so I could ride all year but I'm a wimp.  A good friend does ride all year but he has a BMW K75rt as a winter ride.

I was playing a tag game on ADVRider today and got that one but couldn't find a cocktail lounge.  I'm thinking there might be one in an old motel with a bar attached.

I don't know about sissy drinks but according to HL Mencken:

"During the Colonial period, tavern keepers stored their spirits in casks. When the casks got near empty, the dregs, or tailings, would be mixed together into one barrel and sold at a reduced priceópoured from the spigot, which was referred to as the cock. Patrons wanting this cheaper alcohol would come in asking for Ďcock tailings.í

Tag is a historical site that is a private residence and of course it has to have a plaque. In this particular case the residence is not historical but the location is the principal interest.

Yeah, the website has no info.  I found it on their FB page.

https://www.facebook.com/photo?fbid=10224667347296815&set=gm.3102392389871955

I only found that page because George Blystone posted it on the Foundry page.  He has some cool stuff on there

https://www.facebook.com/photo?fbid=508868519565351&set=a.113700629082144

There was a fellow at the Historic Society working on the train building and he told me that the locomotive was the last one used on the local Waynesburg to Washington PA passenger route.  Is the term a "construct"?  The engine last ran in the 80's and he hopes to have it up and running again in the next few years.

There is other neat stuff there (there were no other visitors, of course.  These local museums are woefully underappreciated) and I think we will go back to see it in the next few days.  If you want any specific pictures or particular questions asked, just let me know.

Thanks for that. Looks like they have an enthusiastic group working to preserve the locomotive and coach. If they're planning to run the locomotive again, the 1472 day inspection will need to be done prior to that. Not an inexpensive or easy thing to do, most of the locomotive is disassembled and the boiler inspected.

The U.S. Federal Railroad Administration requires every steam locomotive to have the boiler inspected after 1472 ďservice daysĒ (the number of days in four years) of operation, or every fifteen years. The inspection includes ultrasonic measurements of thicknesses of the boiler shell, and visual inspection of the boiler and firebox. The regulations were rewritten to take effect in 2000.

The East Broad Top RR in Orbisonia, PA is doing two of their locomotives right now.

The tag is just a water view, in this case it also contains one of the 20 barges that broke loose in our recent hurricane and ran aground but it has nothing to do with the tag.

The new bridge in the background was taken out of service from one of those barges beating the new pilings until a section collapsed in the storm.

Our property is pretty much cleaned up and I still need to rebuild some fences but I'm waiting for the lumber yard hysteria to calm down before loading up the el Camino.

Leafman got it worse than we did, approximately 75 tree's down on his land. He said that it's like a bomb went off.

What's up with you guys?  At least 1/4 of the users of this site are retired, IE they don't have jobs!   Why aren't we getting more folks playing?  At this point 488 looks have been taken at this thread, and a pathetic 5 of us have actually made an attempt to play.  Let's go girls, its fun and easy, it gives you a destination instead of wondering aimlessly around the highways and byways of the world!   None of us care who wins, in fact the way I think we are playing there might not be any winner, but lets play for the fun of it.  Don't pay any attention to the time restrictions shown in the rules, we are Guzziesta, we don't have time for time restrictions!

That was one of the weirdest tags I've gotten.  I just took a random ride on some new roads.  Passed one small road roller without getting a pic because it was one lane and nowhere to stop.  I was riding in some very rural parts of NW WV and there was a lot of road work going on.  Because of the narrow winding roads, the flag men couldn't see one another and were on walkie talkies letting one direction through at a time.

I came around a corner and there was a state truck in my lane and no flagman around.  I slowed way down and was easing my way around when a guy popped up from the front of the truck.  I yelled, "My good?" and he waved me on.   :huh:  Round a turn and there was a huge dump truck and a backhoe tearing up one lane.  I eased past them.  Another turn on a very bad road and came up on that roller.  Passed, stopped, and took the photo.

Round the next bend and three giant dump trucks blocking both lanes with a lot of workmen around and no one paying attention to the lost soul on the Guzzi.  So, I slipped between the trucks in a space that was barely wider than Jackal handlebars.  Lot's of vehicles on the other side.  Not sure what was going on there.  At all.   :grin:

Edit because it's hard for me to type on the phone.  The grab was Industrial Wasteland.  That picture is the old plant in Morgantown West Virginia that was tasked with producing "heavy water".  From Wiki:

The P-9 Project was the codename given during World War II to the Manhattan Project's heavy water production program. The Cominco plant at Trail, British Columbia, was upgraded to produce heavy water. DuPont built three plants in the United States: at the Morgantown Ordnance Works, near Morgantown, West Virginia; at the Wabash River Ordnance Works, near Dana and Newport, Indiana; and at the Alabama Ordnance Works, near Childersburg and Sylacauga, Alabama. The American plants operated from 1943 until 1945. The Canadian plant at Trail continued in operation until 1956. Three nuclear reactors were built using the heavy water produced by the P-9 Project: Chicago Pile 3 at Argonne, and ZEEP and NRX at the Chalk River Laboratories in Canada.
------------
The Morgantown Ordnance Works (MOW) began as an 826-acre (334 ha) chemical production facility operated by DuPont during the Second World War, with construction on the main facility starting in the summer of 1940.[19] Originally producing ammonia for use in the manufacture of explosives, the MOW also produced alcohol, hexamine, and formaldehyde before being expanded to produce heavy water for use in the P-9 Project.[20] Works at Morgantown were undertaken by DuPont under a cost-plus fixed fee contract, as was the works at Wabash and Alabama. Construction commenced on 7 January 1943, and was substantially completed ahead of the 1 September scheduled date. The facilities were progressively brought into operation between 29 May and 28 August 1943. The cost was $3,490,069. DuPont's fixed fee was originally $154,882, but this was voluntarily reduced to $88,588 because the cost of construction was considerably less than the $6,034,000 originally estimated.[21]

The electrolytic finishing plant was established at Morgantown because that plant was under the control of DuPont's Ammonia Division. At this plant the output from the distillation plants, which was about 90% heavy water, was broken down by electrolysis into hydrogen and oxygen. The light hydrogen tends to be drawn off first, leaving the heavy water behind. This process was repeated through several stages to yield a finished product that was 99.75% heavy water.[22] After the water reached a concentration of 99.75%, the heavy water was then transported by rail to the University of Chicago where it was used as a potential moderator for the first nuclear reactors constructed in the United States.[20]

Following the end of the war, DuPont ended their operations at the MOW and the site was leased to various chemical companies until the early 1950s before standing vacant until 1962 when the area was purchased from the United States General Services Administration for the price of $1.25 million by the Morgantown Community Association. The property was then conveyed to the newly created Morgantown Ordnance Works, Inc., owned by local industrialist J.W. Ruby, who began converting the site into an industrial park.[19] In 1984, part of the site was formally proposed to be added to the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Superfund National Priorities List and was added to the list two years later in 1986. Remedy construction began in 2001 and included the consolidation of contaminated materials into an on-site landfill which was covered with a multi-layer cap. The remedy also included long-term monitoring and institutional controls and was completed in 2003.[23] On 21 August 2018, the EPA removed the Ordnance Works Disposal Areas from the Superfund National Priorities List along with eight other sites.[24]

Cluttered Garage

Is there any other kind?  I'm not able to ride for another week (healing nicely, thanks for asking, Sed) and Chuck is still healing-- how's the hand, Chuck?-- so someone else needs to post up their cluttered garage-- seriously, is there any other kind-- and give us a new tag.  :)

In October 1859, abolitionist John Brown and his supporters marched through here on their way to capture the federal armory in Harpers Ferry, Virginia (now West Virginia). The farm used as their headquarters is approx. 1 mile north along Chestnut Grove Rd. The area around the intersection is known as Samples Manor.

Grab - A dog for the surfer dude:  It was in front of a pet store/farm store.

(https://i.ibb.co/gFgd8CM/DogCrop.jpg) (https://ibb.co/gFgd8CM)
 

Did a 100 mile ride looking for a new tag and found 2.  Both seem pretty cool so you decide.
Submarine or seamonster/ municipal art. I thought it was super cool.  Everyone knows the movie, yes?

Or obsolete military establishment?
Old Navy seaplane base on Whidbey Island.  Complete with flying boat.   Flying boats, like rigid airships, spark the imagination - too bad they are not really practical.

Uncle Sam started building the base early in 1941 to patrol the entrance to the Puget Sound naval shipyard.  This PBY was stationed here in 1943 and did a couple tours up in the Aleutian Islands.

Yes - Thank you Chuck.  The 650 Monza is delight - light and responsive.  Then yesterday I thought "Chuck's aero Lario must be a beast!"

If I *had* to pare down the herd  :smiley: the AeroLario would be the keeper. It's not the fastest, best handling, or most comfortable, but it's a lot of fun. <shrug>

That's gotta be the roughest, roadhouse looking-est funeral home I've ever seen.

There used to be one around here in an old Red Lobster, still retaining the cupola and nautical elements.
Can't say if that was true for the inside, never had a meal attended a funeral there.

It is.  The local PD won't answer any calls in the "neighborhood" without at least 2 officers present.  There are no houses or other businesses for several blocks around it.  I pass by it on the way to work every morning.  It's actually still in business.

Ok, I Google Mapped the place. What's the story on this area? I'm fairly familiar with Rust Belt style depopulation, but this looks rather different.

Gridded "streets" that barely qualify as such...
While there's scattered evidence of former home sites (sidewalks to nowhere, curb cuts) the majority looks to have never been developed.
What little housing there is leans pre-war, but there appears to be random mid-century here and there.

It reminds me of an un-remediated Superfund site
Title: Re: WildGuzzi Tag-O-Rama
Post by: T-3Dave on March 07, 2021, 10:35:03 PM
It is close to the airport.  There used to be more houses in the area but the airport was expanded over the last 10-15 years.  They bought up and tore down numerous houses and businesses in the area to comply with noise buffer requirements.  Once the domino started the area has not recovered.  I'm sure 30 years ago it was a thriving area.

Just bumping this up since parts of the country are moving into riding weather.  Tag is anything named after a George:

Georgetown
Washington
Westinghouse
Orwell
Gershwin
Phyllis

You get the idea.  Town, street, bowling alley.  Have at it.

Awesome tag, Charlie.  I love it when the tags come with a little history.  Now I have to look for that writer and specifically this book:

Looking more like spring! At least 'round here anyway :-).  Tag is spring or fall flowers, depending on where you are.  Farms or wildflower blooms are preferable (cactus, etc.), but a nursery would work if you're in a larger city and the fields are too far.  Something above rolling the bike out to your front garden.

Kind of a failed labor saving experiment. Cows could be in stalls all around the barn, and hay dropped from the center to feed them. Good idea, but certainly more expensive to build.

It's karma, man.  That round barn was a toughie.  I had to ask on my local FB bike group to find one.

This one is near me. http://roundbarn.farm/

That's a nice one.  They are some large structures.

The listing of "round barns" that I found on the web included too many DOT garages, storage facilities, and sporting arenas. 

Checking our weather, looks like I'll need an ark to get anymore tags for awhile.  Jeez, with this much rain it's like living in Scotland but our whiskey is better.  :)

Edit: I was sure that I knew where there was going to be a caboose but it wasn't there so two hundred miles later I finally found the thing in Frisco, Alabama.

And the tag is a bus depot.

In this case it is a weird combo thing and I have no idea what the story is regarding this building.

Lets hope no one sees the inside of one.  :) 
The mighty KLR thumper with it's 35 real world hp is a ticket trap.  Too easy and comfortable to do 62 mph in a 45 zone.  The officer gave me a warning, not a ticket, probably because when I took off my helmet I was laughing and because I'm a non-threatening fat old man.  I'm glad he didn't get me a mile earlier when I was doing 70 in that zone.

We had a nice talk about the diner down the road, too.  If anyone is in Hundred, West by god Virginia, make sure you stop at the Rt 250 diner.  Good stuff.

The Police car one, reminded me of my first ticket on a bike. In 1978, my 2 buddies and I left out from Bessemer Al and rode up to Harpers Ferry, camped once on the way in Chattanooga, then Highway 81 the majority of the way. The next morning, after repairing a flat tire, we went the entire Skyline/BRP to Pigeon Forge for the night. A dramatic example of Youth's endurance, a lack of understanding of death due to fast riding on curvy roads and God's protection of fools AND children. The last day on homeward leg, just before leaving NC, we were having a spirited triple digit blast, when we passed an NC trooper headed the other way. If we had ran, he would have never caught us as it was a 4 lane and he had to go a bit to turn around. We stopped and waited for him lol, and when he asked us why we stopped as we were crossing into Tennessee, we explained that our Dads were police and we understood the program. We took pics as he was writing our grossly reduced speeding tix, and it was a funny thing. Except for the $105 fine that was hard money to find back then..
Great Grab!
