I'm down for scooter taggin' it up in the PHX. However, I don't think that it will be all that fun with only two people. Hopefully more folks see this and join up.

CALLING ALL Y'ALL PHOENIX METRO SCOOTERISTS!!!!!

I'll play along. Don't know how good I'll be though. After living in the valley for these past seven years I still can't seem to find my way around.

Cool. Now just to get a few more people on here because I would not want to post up a pic from Central PHX when you live all the way in Mesa. That is one heck of a journey just to snap a photo and then tag back with a new location.

I will post one this week and see who pops up.

WHERE ARE Y'ALL PHX SCOOTERISTS AT?!?!?!

You did great and thank you very much for the hint.

I think that I saw you on Saturday on Mill Ave around 10am with another scooterist on a silver Vespa. Nice scoots by the way. I honked and waved at y'all. LOL.

I will return the tag this week unless someone else gets it first.

Ah yeah! that was my wife and I! I tried to give ya the 'hi' sign.

Actually I think I see you ripping up and down Priest near Broadway all the time. I'm usually coasting down the bike lane on my ebike.

Cheers!

Ah yes! That was I, moving like I am late for "tea time". I am usually headed to work in that area. I really need to work on slowing it down a notch or two.

I think that I may have seen you in the bike lane but if I notice an e-bike then I will be sure to wave at ya. I don't want to honk and possiibly startle you.

I will be returning the tag today.

I found this about a week ago but I had to go at a time where the sun was not right behind the Tomb.

I had to go on my lunch break today to get it. I find any excuse that I can to hop on Benedetta.



I will also raise you another tag.

Hint: This is in Central Phoenix



The name of this tag is on the building. It is a little hard to read (MWAHAHAHA) but you will know it when you see it.

Here is one that is not too far northeast of there.



So I went a little picture crazy.

Stay safe out there.

V!

Yo, V!

And as you noticed today, I changed my route up too. When I take the scoot to work, I hit up 48th to the 143, but on my ebike I continue to roll up Priest.

Despite the wind, the riding has pretty pretty dang comfy lately.

Woot!

I have a couple questions:
My scoot's Modern but not a Vespa, can I still play?
Is one location enough (or do you want both)?

If you answered Yes to both of the questions above I have a third, but first here's Scorpion Gulch:


My question is: know where this is?

If you've bought electronica at Frys in the last ten years, you do.

HAHAHA. I know where that is. Wecome Syd. I moved to another part of North Phoenix and had not had the chance to participate lately in Scooter Tag. You are very welcome to help liven up PHX Scooter tag.

Do you know where the other location is? If you do then snatch it up while you can.

u2metoo may chime is as well.

I'll join! I'm in a ride tomorrow to Cave Creek with a few other scooterists.
If you're interested, join us!
We're meeting at Scott's Generations 5555 N7th at 9am for breakfast and then riding to Cave Creek Coffee Company.

It's a Scooter Club of Metro Phoenix club ride, come out and ride with us!

I'll get a few "Tag' photo's on the way.

Maybe I can jumpstart Phoenix Tag. So, I'll take my own tag (from, I think, a slightly different perspective):


And post a new tag:

I'd never seen a red dino, and thought I'd never see one. But I can surely tell you this, when I did it was at a museum.

Perfect day for a ride - Let's go!

Nice Syd
Nice try Syd, Phoenix Art Museum... but took me a while. BTW, over 100 degrees today and other side of town from me but I'm hard core!




OK kids. My turn... hint, note that little airplane in the background and the gate #sign. Very cool place.

Looking forward to it. I just sent an email out to all 300 or so memebers we have in SCMP, we'll see if we get results. I'll also send it to @scoodah twitter club. They are small but active.

Glen,

I rode out to where I thought for sure your tag was, but I was wrong. I thought for sure it was Scottsdale Airport terminal, which was close by to the Go AZ Grand Re-opening they had in Scottsdale on Saturday that you may have attended. So if not SDL, then I'm guessing....

good try
Hey Buddy, hope to see you soon.... good try, LOL, you are using your head (this is where the ride left from that went too GOAZ Vespa... if you do some snooping. Hint, it is Sky Harbor (which is a huge airport).. and this was the ORIGINAL terminal building. No where near where the terminals are now. And it's a restaurant. Good luck. And when you want, let me know and I'll buy you breakfast there!

Biltmore
Landscaper pulled up 3 seconds before I did...





Tag you're it: HINT : little hard to see but behind the scooter is actually a cave entrance but there is a brown wooden fence keeping you from entering. 100's of birds flying in and out. (Be careful driving up there, it's a crazy road and hard to park).

Are they birds flying in and out of that cave, or maybe bats???

i will say that the drive uo the hill was a bit scary but way fun! I was surprised at how easily the ET drove up the incline, and how well the engine braked going back down. A nice detour on the way home from work. Glad I found this post!
