I agree with buglake on both points:

1. You did sound like a Royal Bioatch, but rightly so
2. Let's move on with our regular scheduled game

Let's ride and show the beauty of San Diego county in its entirety.

After taking a quick look at 38 pages of posts.... It looks like at least 75% of the tags are South of the 52 and West of the 67. Also it looks like the rules were hashed out on the first 5 or 6 pages of the game to include all of San Diego County, not just North Park and Hillcrest. So if it leaves your area, it will come back! Even if you have a small bike, it's still fun to take long rides. I forgot who it was, but it looks like a couple members with 125cc and 150cc's have rocked the county pretty good. They have set an example that it can be done!
grscum:

I think at this juncture, since we have more scooter riders on MV in San Diego County that we decide to split the county up!

Lets see if we could have two tag limits for San Diego County,
1) No. Cty San Diego, and So. Cty San Diego.

this way we wont have much to BITCH ABOUT!

But, the ? remains, where do we have the divide line. I truely believe this would be more fruitful and much more fun.

+ Plus we still have the San Diego Fanatic & friends, RBSC, and the others that have taken off quite well for the rally rides together, which we have in the past, rides of all the scooters makes riding the surface roads much better.

my 2 cents worth.
Hugh
Hillcrest

Shall we VOTE of this and make it clear, the past beginning of the scooter tags and San Diego County, are greatly increased riders.
Wow...let's overcomplicate this and wash all the "fun" and challenge out of it. It'll be like a Government program then!
well gosh, i see you are in Temecula, and I am in Hillcrest. I would not venture up there unless I was planning a trip to Palm Springs to see relatives, or be it a sponsored ride with one of the groups.

My 2 cents worth.
Well, I guess that's your loss.

Many people from there travel up here, and vice versa regularly in the pursuit of scooter enjoyment. I have ridden my (former) Et-4 to Mission Bay from here, as has my wife, she has also ridden her Buddy 125 here from there.

Another MV member KS7877 has ridden all over creation in the pursuit of scooter enjoyment, and grabbed more than a few "tags" in the process. Grscum, lensmith, modernelitist, to name just a few others who travel far and wide to "play". To many, I think the prize is the ride, not the photo.

You have to travel how/when/far YOU fell comfortable doing so...thats for sure. But the "scooter-tag" game is just that a game...meant to promote scooter riding and exploration based on individual tastes and skills. The pictures are secondary.

If you don't want to venture out of your comfort zone, don't. But why limit the "game" to others that want to make the effort, enjoy the trip, and MAYBE grab the tags wherever in the agreed-to geography that they may be?

Some people play Pinochle in the park for r&r, some people base-jump...personal preference.
Gosh darn, it was only a suggestion. I leave the county when i do business and when I am north, I am usually at Oceanside Vespa.

I did not want to start an arguement, just a suggestion.

I re-read my posts, and man - I sound like a Royal Bitch instead of a Royal Bastard. I apologize.
meh, I'm used to it from you.

And to all... I really didn't mean to start this much of a mess... I was just venting a little frustration that there were a few tags in a row that were much farther than I either had time to do or felt comfortable doing by myself. That's all. I am not opposed to "working for it" as it were, but I do have my limits as to what I will do out on my own on the scoots. I am still getting used to little wheels after all.

game on!

Hm. At first I thought that was ocean in the back, but now I think it's a lake. It is not familiar to me at all, though! I'm ready for a hint, UFO.

I think I have it narrowed down to 2 possible lakes.

I'm leaning toward Sweetwater Resevior or Otay Lakes.

well, I didn't get the tag, but I had a great ride!!

I took the chance that the site was the lower otay resevoir and still think that it is. I found the "Fishermans Line Starts Here" sign, but couldn't spot the more official entrance (with the bird on it).

the ride there was interesting. I passed through horse ranches and farm land on the way to fancy shmancy housing developments. lots of people out walking and bicyclist too... but not a single other scooter spotted

having not found the sign, I thought I'd check out the upper otay so went that way rather than just backtracking home. it was worth it! a few miles into that leg of the journey, there was a sign that said twisties next 9 miles that road took me to, of all places, Jamul?!

so, what would have been a 20 mile roundtrip for a tag turned into a 40ish mile great ride on a beautiful day. sorry I didn't get a picture, but happy I went scootin...

When it comes to it, it's all about the journey. Glad you had fun and what a beautiful day to ride. Oh, I finally spotted UFO live going on University (NorthPark) today. I wish I had my camera so that I could have tagged him. That would have been worth something, right? We should start one where we get double points for tagging UFO.

Happy scootin everyone.

And today Saturday, after a night full of bliss and carress from the Hawaiian Islands, My # 1 B-Friend came with me today to do the tag. Funny, haha haha haha.

When we were done I locked my keys in my top case, and had to use force and absolute happiness that I broke open the case to retreive my keys, cause this dude had to catch his jet back to Honolulu.

then later, I ran into UFO and treated him to an excellent meal at MO's, and he was laughing cause all the people were coming up to me winking, etc, grab ass, then the owner sat at the table with us. I blew UFO off the planet!

I dunno what happened to me. I was looking all over both lower and upper Otay and didn't find that darn sign!

maybe I should enjoy the scooting less so I pay more attention?

mmhmm and at the end of that road is the Otay water treatment plant. then gravel... then a fence! I really should have paid more attention

you're right though, a fun drive! did you go past the upper Otay to Jamul? that drive was really good, I thought.
