DirtyRat actually has photographed the entire city with one of his scooters. He'll snap a pic, move 10 feet down the road and take the next pic. He has a photo of either Fireball or Snotgoblin pretty much everywhere.

A clever strategy, I do agree.

Now my secret is out! ... and I'm nervously low on backup tag pictures to whip out when KS proclaims she tagged my locale years ago.

*sigh*

is the next scooter tag breakfast? I think we should wait for ks to come back to the states, but we should try to schedule something. I'd certainly like to meet some of you.

dr - There's a link to the map of the first 70 or so pages of tags in the first post. Avoiding duplicates should easier now.

mm - Playing tag in Sydney would have been great. Wish I would have thought of that.

ls - home now and ready to play

North County Scooter tag?
Hi all... Been riding my not-so-gently used GTS 250 for about 3 very fun months now. Sad thing is none of my friends have vespas (or scooters, or any kind of bikes for that matter... boo). I would love to join in on scooter tag or a ride! I live in Oceanside though so SD scooter tag is a stretch for me. Any North County based groups?

I live in Fallbrook, and play scooter tag from time to time...and the tag does make it up to North County.

Welcome to the game!

Perry - Saturday is a no go for me. How about Sunday? San Diego Second Sunday Ride Revival - 14 Oct 2012

DirtyRat - I saw your coastal reference and the second photo. Thought i'd be able to find your people in La Jolla. Came up empty. May I have another clue, please?

I was pretty certain that was a Union Bank across the street, but an hour of looking at street views rendered nothing. Saves on gas.

Pro Tip: my coastal tag pic was taken AFTER the Google street view photos were uploaded to google. You might nail the location at some point, but my 'people' don't show up

Found - thanks to J-Hop's Union Bank clue - outside the Armani Exchange (also known as the Sierra Mar building) at Girard and Silverado, La Jolla

I'm sorry to say I didn't find any information about the artist, though. Usually there's a plaque or something.
Here's another couple to tag.

Is that scooter a GT60? When/where did you get it? I almost bought one off a guy in No. Cty. Love that bike.

Iga - Yep, it's the same GT60. Got it from fellow MVer and No Cty rider Len Smith. You should have snapped it up when you had the chance.

DR - Time to dig into your extensive quiver of back-up tags. The Grantville trolley station was posted by Rex on 28 Jan 08 and tagged by yours truly 18 Feb 08. See page 17 or check the map linked in the first post - it has the first 70 pages(+/-) of tags to help avoid duplicates.

"sweet merciful crap!!" - Homer Simpson

...and I *thought* that map of tags was so out of date/missing tags last I checked it months ago, so I never used it. Somebody updated it to be fairly current!

** Update: I was looking at the scooter tag map link in mmehren's sig by mistake: http://www.zeemaps.com/San_Diego_Scooter_Tag

Any chance of deleting this post/my previous tag post once I put up my second attempt? we can pretend I didn't make a noob dupe post.

The car, not the house. I'm guessing it's a project. Mostly, I know how much all you wanted that Tide Pool tag but the $3 held you back. (jk)

While not the best photo (camera phone and super bright sun rays), it shows the Bodhi Veterinary Hospital on University @ Mississippi. I guess the little framed, animal art lights up at night, but I haven't seen that yet.
