Got it, finally.

Would have gotten it soon but, I was procrastinating putting on my new front tire.

I'll post up a new one shortly tomorrow hopefully.

Got this one before the storms rolled in tonight.

I think the half sign and metro in the back ground should make this one pretty easy.

here it is...






next tag, Fairfax County Fire Station #16 (Clifton). A very scenic trip and worth the ride out to. If this is too far or takes too long, I'll put something different.

On the 22nd or23rd, I'll be picking up mio Dolce from Modern Classics with her new bling and a quieted muffler. Maybe I'll swing by Du Pont if no one else has by then.

I was just there dropping off the mothership for routine servicing. I thought I saw your scooter in the showroom, had vanity plates.

Yes, the plates are my address at the beach in NC

If not, I'll have another one up early next week. A great ride down Braddock, Burke Lake, and Clifton Rds., pretty scooter friendly compared to the rest of the area.

got it! I used Google Earth to see what looked like beaches. I counted about 5 of them, then came in from Pat Henry Dr to do a lap around the lake, I had no idea which was beach 3, it was hard to tell from "street view". Sure enough #3 was the first one I came up on....





Next tag is up!

Beat me to it, I did the same thing with google maps and street view to find that sign that said beach 3. I was looking forward to a nice leisurely ride around the lake, might have to head over there for a ride and explore anyway....

As a new rider, I was actually hoping to **avoid** the location depicted in the latest tag

That said, I look forward to joining in the game! Maybe I'll see some of you scooting around town...

welcome Amy! It's good to have another player in the tag game. We gotta get DC on the map and as active as Sacramento and some of the other tag regions. I'm brainstorming some ride ideas, so if you are up for group rides, shoot me the details, or check out our meetup.com group... "DC Spin Doctors"

Shoot this next one's right off my route home. But, it will have to wait for tomorrow, need to get home in a timely fashion tonight. Unless some one else gets it before then...

I hope I get to see that orange Stella around!

Side note:
I'm looking for a used GTS, maybe a GTV, in the NOVA/DC area, if anyone knows of anyone thinking of selling shoot me a pm.

Sorry for the delay on getting the next tag posted. This afternoon I was riding around and just wasn't able to decide on a spot.
I'll get one shortly.

This is my first attempt at scooter tag. This particular location will be worth the trip in a couple of weeks.
