Redbud Trail, my second favorite view of downtown. Although it's harder to see it as well in a photo.

I'll play too if I can find the time and know where you are. Don't know the current building though and I'm actually a native Austinite.

Yea! I'm excited more people are joining in! A friend pointed out that this is also a way to get cool pictures of your scooter. I don't know why I didn't think of it that way, but now I've started an album in iPhoto just for Puddin' photos.

I've lived here almost four years and love discovering new places.

mmm...sausage! Now I'm going to have to go have some...I'm so easily suggestible!

I brought my camera to work with the optimistic idea that someone will get that photo before I get off work...

A (somewhat) easy one, given that we have the potential for rain the next several days. Let me know if you need a clue.

I've seen this before...is it where I think it is? We'll see... I'm hoping against rain for selfish reasons (who cares about the drought???) LOL.

It's becoming apparent that as a native, I sure don't get out to see the cooler places in town anymore. I'd better start riding my Vespa round town more huh? Now if anyone wants to place "What used to be on that corner in 1970" I'll woop you all! Okay, maybe next time. I've already got my picture location picked out!

Sorry I'm not getting these photos any larger...the site doesn't seem to like to load my photos if they're even close to 200kb.

apmark! There are definitely some advantages to being newer to Austin, and a scooter is a really great way to get to know some obscure locations (seems like I'm always on a backroad).

Would you say that the artist's depiction of the gal on the motorcycle is that of a dare devil, or someone into bondage?

I was thinking she was a daredevil...their outfits would not indicate someone into bondage...

I don't have a clue where that tag is at.

Today I was daring and put 20 miles on my scoot. Driving through the neighborhoods by my house. I had so much fun. I also got a new jacket at Cycle Gear up by 183 and Burnet and I wasn't sure I would like wearing a jacket while I rode but it is awesome!. It is mesh with armor and I was so cool in it it was unbelievable. The air just went through it like I wasn't even wearing it. My gloves are great too but I love the jacket. Also my big huge helmet I purchased is working great too. I might just be on a scooter high right now.

Anyways soon hopefully I will be active finding these things after my MSF class.

I guess maybe another clue is in order for the photo? It's raining a little bit, so I don't know if anyone will be looking, but you never know. The picture is between a BBQ joint and a coffeehouse.

Congrats on all the gear and riding, umm! I've purchased several items at Cycle Gear and have always been very happy with their service.

Third photo clue:

Okay, that 3rd clue is too easy. Somebody go get this . . . I don't think we're going to have any rain until this evening.

I think I might know. If my ride home is not a wash out, I will give it a shot, but if anyone is already on the way, go for it!
