Chub512, nevermind. I realize now that it must be your S150 (in your Avatar) that has the tan seat.

Khaiku, you don't fool me for a minute! Just keep telling yourself that. Cool that you left a note for the mystery Black GTS too. The next note I leave will say "Just forget it".

Steve, this one better be something like my mothers front door. You will suffer in time.

It's 4 O'clock. Do you know where your Scooter is? (youngsters, you won't get that)
Nope, it wasn't me. Both the gts and the s150 have black seats. I am ninja stealth baby!

Let's step up the difficulty a little bit.

This is near the last tag and should be on the corner but really isn't.

And the three hints are:
1. Near the last tag
2. Should be on the corner but really isn't
3. View from old tag to Whole Foods is really amazing

Is this correct or am I misunderstanding something? I think I've got about a 1/2 search area, but probably cannot do it today (probably!)...

I've eaten there once, a cheeseburger and fries, and it was delicious! Highly recommend it. Great job finding the tag, too...wondering how you found it versus how I found it. Nerd emoticon

My Last Tag was Pure Luck
Khaiku, I was heading back to the previous tag on 11th St. to look back in the direction of Whole Foods in search of the new tag when I noticed a commotion on the sidewalk in front of the Counter Cafe. That was when I noticed that Peace Sign sticker and Statesman newspaper stand and "VIOLA!" If it wasn't for the commotion I would of never found that Tag.

Wow! I used Google Maps (yes it did help) and "walked" down Lamar until I saw that curb, bush and paper stand.

I know where the new one is and am doing the "do I go over there now (even though I have to get up at 4:30) or some other time?" debate...

Haha that is awesome the way you found it. I was stuck in traffic there yesterday going to pick up my wife's car from the dealer and saw it there and thought it looked cool. I am a retard and thought the name of the place was "Corner Cafe" as the clue to one of my hints. The other two were okay. On google maps if you would have drawn a straight line from the last tag to my tag you would have seen the line would have crossed lamar right where the guy sits

Well, I thought it was funny...
Two of my friends were just racing out to get some discount tickets to the Maker Faire and when I asked where they were going, they said, "The Island". I busted out laughing and said, "that's a scooter tag site!" So, I guess it's not just fun, but educational. Laughing emoticon

I don't get the connection between The Island and the Maker Faire. The Maker Faire, I believe, is out at the Travis County Exposition Center off Decker Lane.
