I'm relatively new at this forum and didn't see a Los Angeles Scooter Tag thread so I figure I will start one. (mod, please feel free to merge this thread if there's already an existing one)

The rules are essentially the same as the Orange County Tag and I borrowed some rules from that thread:

* The boundaries are within Los Angeles County, CA.

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

* Individually other participants ride to the same place and get a photo with THEIR scooter at the same/similar spot.

* The first person to "tag" the photo by posting their photo with their scooter gets to post the next photo for people to find.

*ADDED: if the person who does not post a new photo within 48 hours, anyone may hijack the tag and start a new photo.

* 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 hunt is part of the fun.

This one should be relatively easy to figure out:

If it makes its way down to south LA county I'm in!! You'll probably get a lot of the OC riders involved.

Grrrr....

I know where that is, but I'm currently scooterless and in a different time zone!

Nice LXV.

bummer...there's gotta be more riders in the LA metro area.

I'm envious of the OC scooter tag thread...

Yes, you actually can never have stepped foot in LA and recognize this one. I'll give it a little time, and then give you a hint. But I guarantee you...you know it.

I know what it is. Good one.

Edit - once you know what it is a quick google will produce the address.

I can attest that I've never, ever set foot in LA, and I know what the significance of that house is.

(if that helps).

I think the point of scooter tag is to figure it out for yourself...

Sorry as I wasn't sure of my guess, that is why I posed it as a question.

Thank you. I was driving back from the first one, and it hit me that the Brady Bunch house was a nice complicated thought provoking, memory inducing place. So there we go...let's get out there and have some fun with this!

.....only if you take the picture for me, put it on MV with your fancy schmancy phone, and help me pick a new location (which automatically disqualifies you from the next tag).

Okay, why don't you just stay down south, I will do all of the work, and no one has to know? That way you don't have to ride and you don't have to see me? If it sounds good, call me tomorrow!
