Thanks for the tag, and let me offer a warning about the crossovers. They have a habit of coming apart, dumping raw fuel on the rear tire, and if you are in a corner when it happens it's like the rear tire hitting glare ice. A really big fire rages while you and the bike are laying on the side of the road. Don't ask me how I know.. :smiley:
Use dual banjos on the selector valves instead.

I'm glad your here to tell the story. I can see how this could happen.
This was the 2013 Ural crossover which had a leak. I discovered that  I had pinched the hose between the alternator and the airbox the last time I installed it. Normally the hose sits just above the box. The hose had a one inch long slit  and was about to become a gully washer. I have single banjos on my Ambo, I'll keep an eye on the fuel manifold and hoses.

Grab, Maverick is one of my friends who always enjoys a ride in the tub. He is an eight year old Black Lab.






Hi Maverick.  Beautiful dog.  Great age, too.  At 8, they're generally awfully smart and not quite as crazy as young doges.

Christmas eve book store grab!  Apologies that it's not a Guzzi.




Next tag is a barge crane, or a barge, or a crane.  Taken a couple weeks ago, but at least it's a Guzzi this time.   :afro:

Man, those are some great photos.  I didn't realize how big that crane is until I saw the man standing on it.

Thank you.  Yes, that crane is a beast.  Another shot in a soaking rain.  (there is supposed to be a picture, but it's not showing for me...)

It is sort of amazing that this church is still standing given how many hurricanes have rolled through here since 1832.




Speaking of bricks, tag is a car or cars on a RR siding. In this case delivering bricks to the local supplier which has also been here for quite a few years. The photo doesn't have to include a delivery location, just a RR cut out.

In my defense, I hadn't eaten breakfast that day.   :food: 
That is a Grafton West Virginia interpretation of a Cheesesteak Sammich.  Chopped up mystery meat-- like Steak 'Ums-- cheap cheese, some onions and peppers on a good soft white bread roll.  Yum. 
Good riding food.  I hadn't eaten there before and was excited to find a new food joint.

Ok…beautiful sunny day, about 42F…blue skies!  Had to go for a ride!

Here’s a burger joint that serves corn dogs (qualify as a hot dog??).  If so, next tag is an old style county courthouse!

That's an awesome tag, Paul.  And thanks for keeping the tag alive while it's freaking cold here.

I’ve already posted a photo in this thread of the old county courthouse, will a Federal courthouse work?




If that works, then the tag is a grand church with some interesting architecture, old or contemporary is OK.

Not exactly a “grand” church but the architecture of the Lutheran church on the campus of West Virginia University is certainly interesting. Looks like it used to be a Chinese restaraunt.





Will that work to grab the tag?  If nobody objects within a day, I'll post a new tag.  So, object now or forever hold thy piece (sic)!

Well, if nobody objects— the new tag is an auto parts store.





If you do object, tag a grand church. :)

thanks very much.....running like a train, only 70k miles.  I'd bet the owner can make a good deal on it.

Multiple tags of either a crane, water view or boats but not ships.
 


Or a baseball field with players:
