Okay South Bay. Easy one. Trying to get some rhythm going with the good riding weather this week.

Had to photoshop the sign so as not to give it away.

Yeah, me too. Based on the clue I figured it was some side street in Saratoga village. I rode around on every street for like 2 hours. I had actually given up and left. I was headed to grab some lunch at Bobbi's, and there it was, in front of a preschool.

You could only see the top of the stack over the wall!

Although this sculpture is in the south bay, there is a copy of it in Toyokawa, Aichi, Japan.

"Cupertino was incorporated in 1955... The city's symbol is a conquistador's morion. A sculpture of this helmet stands next to Cupertino City Hall, and several versions of the helmet have also been used as the city logo. The original sculpture was made in 1971 by John Augsburger of San Luis Obispo. A full-sized replica of the sculpture, made by Fred Subega was given to the city of Toyokawa, Japan as a gift to commemorate their tenth anniversary as sister cities..."

Hint #3:

Kinda giving it away here. This club is named after a city in another state. That city's nickname is "The Beach".

Never been to the club (not my cup of tea, nightclubs Nerd emoticon ) but I drive by it everyday on my way to work.

Go for it! I think I know where it is but haven't had a chance to go see...

Check out the "Rallies and Events" section on Modern Vespa. We are entering into the Rally season, hurray! Vespa Club of Los Gatos puts on a great one which is called "Classico Moto Italia" which is May 4th this year. It includes a "Giro En Vespa" timed competition that is a lot of fun, you should enter it!

Oh, welcome to ModernVespa, by the way!

John at Moto Amore is good. I also have used San Jose Vespa -- they are good and used to give out loaners while you bike's in the shop...

What's wrong with your scoot?

Got it -- only took a month!
Wow, has it been a whole month since this tag was posted? I knew where it was, just couldn't find the time to go out there. Lovely ride though, and the gas in San Jose is about 50 cents cheaper than here in Mountain View!

I'll post the next tag in a bit...

First hint was that I pass it on my way home from work (look at my signature, and I work in Mountain View).

Let's see, another hint... This particular tag is next to a highway, an access road, and a hiking/biking path -- all three!

If that's not enough, I'll post more hints tomorrow!

Welcome to the area! Check out the "Three Peaks Challenge" thread in the Ralley's section. If you're down in San Jose, stop by the Waffle House at 8AM tomorrow and see us off!

Tell me next time you come up, I'll loan you my LX150...
