Happened upon this while returning from planning a rally ride. Hard to take pics while doing twisties: )

Before the Prius vs SYM...

This must be so difficult to find, that I will post a new pic on this Sunday if no one has found this tag.

Help. For those of us who missed that great rally please post another clue
It is in San Francisco.
It is on a pretty busy street.
The SFSG rally Poker Run/ Scavenger Hunt/ Scooter Tag went by it.
That ride started in the SOMA by the Mission, went by Golden Gate Park, The Marina & Fisherman's Wharf.

It is not in Hunters Point, the Design Center, Nob Hill, at the Metreon, SF Vespa, San Francisco Scooter Centre or First Kick. It is not on Treasure Island. It is not on Radio Road or Twin Peaks. It is not at an art gallery or a church.
It is not at a bar but nearby.
It is an Unlikely place for art...kinda like the Gandhi bronze at the Embarcadero.

The Scooter Tag patch is way cool. It's in the mail to the person who extends the effort to tag the spot.


I can mail you the game board if you want the path to the prize!

Someone needs to win this great & well deserved patch...

OK I scoured Fulton asked people searched on the internet all to no avail. In asking people on the the street I was pointed in the direction of Fell and Octavia only to fail again. This is the most hidden sculpture in SF. I cannot wait to see where it turns out to be. Sadly I wont have time to get back into the city for a few more weeks. Someone please go get this tag!
Snapshot,

I hope you win this.

Okay BIG CLUE...
It is on the private property of a financial institution.
In plain sight on the throttle side as you ride down the street: )

Eureka! Wells Fargo bank on Chestnut St. I thought I'd better get it today before it rains.

I was all over Union street looking for that thing. Glad someone I know snagged it. Great play and you win the patch

I had seen a reference to this being at a Wells Fargo on Union St. but didn't see it there. When laura wrote
that it was indeed at a financial institution, I checked all the Wells Fargo branches along the route she
described and finally found it. OK, on to the next one. I shot this on the way to the city.

I really thought that clue I found was going to get you the tag. Moved from Cow Hollow to the Marina! Go figure... Good one, Mr. Zip!

Fortunately I took to Google Earth to look before heading out. Even at that I looked at all the Wells Fargo branches except for that one

Ok, so no one found it over the weekend and tomorrow may be the only dry day this week, so here is a larger view. Go get it!

Mmmmmm.... could be! I didn't want to give away too much all at once.
I will say, however, that if no one finds it shortly, I'm sure it will be found by next week.

Got it
Just happened to go to the Motorcycle show in San Mateo. I remembered that Delaware st went to the old Racetrack. Snagged the tag and here we are. By the way, no sign of Vespa or Kymko at the show this year. My bike is the red one behind El Jeffes so do not look for his scooter in the next tag

Hurrah! Great work. I chose this spot because the motorcycle show was coming and I hoped that even if
nobody recognized it or figured it out from the clues, someone would see it on their way to the show.

Next Tag
I have a place in mind for the next tag. Early clue it is very far from my House. It is raining today "Friday the 27th" As this is a place I recently discovered I am determined to use it. Hope everyone had a great Turkey day and hopefully there will be a new tag soon.

Go get it
Ok this is sticking to a popular theme for me. Historic and lots of dead people. I already said I had to go far from home to get this. There is a connection though to where I live. If anyone is playing than post questions and I will post more clues. If not than as par for the tag. May the game rest in peace!

Its official Mr Zip. You need a job Great capture. For all you East Bay MVrs when I took this photo they were stringing lights for the Xmas display. I am tempted to brave the cold and see it lit up at night. Amazingly beautiful spot in such an urban area.

A job? I don't need no stinking job.
Actually, I do work part time but they cut my schedule to two days a week because things are so slow.
Fortunately, I still make enough to buy gas for my scooter.

By next week, the temp at night will probably be about what it was yesterday.
It may be a few days before I get the new tag up. I have something in mind but I work the
next couple of days and it looks like the weather may get in the way, too.

Since this took so long, I'll start off with a couple of clues.
This continues a theme and I also had to go far from home but there is no connection to where I live.

New Tag
So sticking with a theme I come back to often which I think is inspired by the song "No More Scooter Rides in the Cemetery" I am wondering if this is easily accessed from Highway 280?

Well, normally I would think it was time for another clue but since at least two people seem to know where it is, I have apparently
given enough already. However, I will add a (doctored to remove the name of the place) close-up from the last shot.

But I do have to say I love the exploding xmas lights at the top of the page.

Here's an un-altered photo: nothing like giving it away, I know, but this thread has been languishing for
over a week now. Maybe someone who hadn't figured it out yet will go get it or someone who knew where it
was but hadn't found the time will be inspired to go out.

There really aren't any more clues (short of posting a map with the location marked) but I thought I'd bring it to the top of the queue.
