Oldhighway -- no, the flames are not reflective but they are a little pearly themselves. I'm still not sure what I'm going to do with them, if anything.

I love the top case! I used it today to do some shopping. 8)

I found these today as I was looking for some chrome for my scoot:

Front clear turn signals and Rear clear turn signals. .

BTW - the top case looks great! Thanks!

Who, me? I don't have a clue where the new tag is.

Since you guys have been giving me crap about my mother-in-law and the Internet, I've decided to cancel my cable and newspaper subscriptions as well, and, I'm getting rid of my computer as soon as I can find a pair of decent bongo drums. I was going to go with smoke signals but due to the recent rain, I didn't want to miss any news.

I was also thinking about a couple of homing pigeons, but I didn't want to take unfair advantage. 8)

Just bullshitting! If I could get the CIA and the FBI to help me, I'd absolutely do it. Since I voted for the sitting mayor, he owes me a favor!!

It was a great night for a ride. I'm pleased to see that just for once, I sorta stumped you. Razz emoticon You were in the right part of town, though.

Gary, you could always use signal flags as a backup for the smoke signals. If you buy some made out of recycled plastic they are more ecologically sound too. Of course if you ditch the computer you will miss the next clue...unless you want me to print it and mail it to you.

I've been riding all over the place, found several water towers. Used the clue that you got it in the evening and used the shadows as an indicator, googled B.C. Flagg and came up with nothing, looked at satellite photos until I am legally blind,...this is the best tag, yet!

My first tag, and apparently a difficult one for some. Razz emoticon

I found it by looking for the location of UCT. I guess I am suppose to give the location, its behind the building located at 632 Park St., down the alley.

Good find. I had found it online as well, but being in Delaware, it just wasn't feasible.

Maybe I'll play a solo version of scooter tag - I'll call it Vespa Tour: Delaware. Then you all can see all of the quirks that our great little place has to offer

Sweet! What time did you get there? I was on the way to a meeting at my son's school, so I rode by around 5:10.

So, where are we headed next?

Good find, Bird. I rode around in all the wrong places. I was looking for an industrial area adjacent to the Smith tower and N.Fourth and Summit St.

Can't wait to see what's next. Dicks Den?

Great tag, Smets!

If SS won't let me borrow the autorickshaw for the Holiday lights parade would anyone like to decorate their scoots with lights and be in the parade for GRIN? (Gahanna Residents In Need-GRIN)

It's Saturday after Thanksgiving.

I just went to the first page to refresh my memory on the rules of scooter tag.
I think the important ones are:

1. You have three days after you tag to post a new picture.
2. Clues on day two and three when no body has tagged.

I only point out the second one because I figured out the tag after smets first clue and I think people should have a day to get there before a second clue is given. I would have been devastated if someone got there before me because the second clue cinched it for them.
I took some photos last night after I tagged (time stamp 6:35 pm) but they are dark and might make it a little unfair. I will try to get out tonight before dark.

All right Bird ! Great find I am still not sure where its at. Park St.?
Now we are all waiting for your next post.

Hey oldscooterguy are you one in the same person we meet at Euro Bike night in Sept. ?
Lets watch the weather and if it looks good post the parade ride in the Columbus ride section, I would be more than happy to do that it sounds like fun. Keep us informed on it please Laughing emoticon What time is the parade? Where in Gahanna ? I love the Gahanna grill we have been talking about getting together for the holidays.

Bird, get out there and get the new picture! I try to post the new tag on the same day but almost always within 24 hours. I don't know what the rules are, but I think we have to speed things up when the weather is in our favor.

Gary- is that you on a gray scooter circling my work window? I am feeling some serious pressure.
My boss won't let me leave work to play scooter tag and I am afraid it might be dark by the time I get home so I am willing to post my crappy dark photo. I think either you know this or you don't, no clues in the photo itself.
I hate that this is my first picture, really wanted to scout out some other spots but I hear revving engines... Sigh emoticon

With the days as short as they will be for the next few months. I bet more photos will be of the dusk/evening variety. Plus, more frost bitten hands... I just ordered some Hippo Hands. They have specific ones for Vespas. I hope they work! I have heard great things...

Bird - I have no idea where this location is, but the quality of the photo is just fine!

Bird, I love the photo it looks so winterie out there in that photo. (is that a word) anyway it looks great
Dmets I got my lens covers today did you order some? If so let me know how to put them on or better yet start a thread.
Check these out for hand warmers
http://www.dual-star.com/index2/Rider/heated_grip_kit1.htm

I talked to the guy at BadDaddy's bike shop and asked if he could give me a cost for instalation and also told him I would ask you all if you were interested in them, he's gonna get back to me with a price the grips are thirty bucks and then you would have to buy new grips but heated grips would be so cool, they have a high and low or off ANYONE INTERESTED ?

Lol there's no rhyming requirement. A clue is a clue!

I'm sorry about the quick second clue the other day. I posted that before I saw that you were on the way. I was hoping to goad Gary and Dustin into a race. Razz emoticon

Twojacks, if you were riding around Goodale park, you were literally feet away from the tag.

I didn't order the clear lenses. I did order a black topcase. and the hippo hands. I heard that heated grips and the hippo hands make it too hot. So I will try just the low tech solution first.

Riding in on Tues, I shared a lane with a guy on a Green PX150 with one of those Turcado Urbano lap blankets... The one that attaches to the scoot, not to you. Man was it nice. His girlfriend from over seas sent it to him. So I don't think they are available here, but he said it keeps the rain and cold off of his legs. It looked pretty cool, rolled up on his leg shield too...

Suzanne picked me up a front fender bar and metal mirrors. They look great. Considering the dime I just dropped on the topcase ($99 on sale at Scooterwest, they have other colors other than black too....), I'll have to wait a while (spring maybe) for a new purchase, but I think it will be rear cowl crash bars to match the front fender, which looks great. Thank you Suzanne!

Now for that hint....

Hey, I'm now "hooked"... Sweet! My 100th post!

Nah, just frostbite.

Due to circumstances, we had not yet ridden together. But last night, I get home from work and Suzanne asks if I want to go out and grab the tag. I of course immediatly agreed and recalled what a great pair we make.
