I had a lucky break on this trip. On my return from picking up the tag, just as I entered the onramp to 101S, my scooter died! Since I had just filled up, my first thoughts were that the problem was gas related (overfilling), but it turned out that my sparkplug cap had come off. This could have happened a few minutes later on the freeway, or even on my way up, mixing it with the traffic on 101! Needless to say, I took it real easy going home, keeping to the right hand lane!

Cheers,

Bob

I should have mentioned earlier that I owe finding the tag to my buddy Mike, as it was he who recognised the station. As for the next tag, here it is, happy hunting!

Here's another view. This could possibly also qualify as a South Bay or East Bay tag!

This sure hasn't been a good week for riding, but tomorrow may a little warmer and sunny, so get out and get this tag!

I thought I recognised this locale on the second shot, but I am used to seeing it with antiques all over the place. Hollywood north here we come. Happy Hunting I won`t be able to get to this until the 26th and only if the rain stops

Perfect. Weather.com says we'll get a break in the rains/showers on Friday and not again until NYE.

Good job, Snapshot! I hope you had time for one of their great sandwiches! It's the Nile Cafe in Niles, (Fremont), a good place to stop after a ride on Calaveras Road.

No time for a sandwich but I did take a minute to chuckle at your Moses clue. I googled Bulrushes like crazy with no luck it was your second photo and Mikes clue that tipped it for me. Great tag hidden in plain sight you could say

Yes, it was a great day and we had fun ride. We stopped at Alice's for lunch on the way back and there were a bunch of motorcyclists there! Looking for a new tag in San Francisco was tricky, but here it is. San Franciscans, how well do you know your city?

Oh! I know JUST where that is. But I'm guessing someone actually in the city will snag it at lunchtime or somthing. The ride out to the park would have been fun. What a glorious day it was today!

I've got an idea, as a native San Franciscan, but I'm sure not riding all the way up there on my 150 to find out!

The sad thing is that I've known where it is from the very first photo - and have thought several times about tagging it - but just hate going up to that part of the city.
