Recommended Posts

Want to moan about a tag? Want to tell me how awesome I am? Both are welcome here but I prefer the latter.

 

For any new players, it may surprise you but I don't actually go to all the places. I rely on the magic of google maps to try and ensure I am not sending you down any insanity roads (if your satnav does that's not on me) however it does mean that occassionally places may have closed or changed name. As long as you are in the right vicinity you're gonna get the points but if you can let me know any issues and I will rename / find a local alternative as necessary.

 

It's all about fun, there are only a few rules and the Hoggs special rounds are open to interpretation - in fact this is actively encouraged - so enjoy yourselves getting out and about!

no 🤣

 

 

🤣  I'm disallowing it as a bird as I feel it doesn't lay eggs. You can totally have it as a mythical beast though 😉

Now, what about the Cock Inn ? 🤣🤣

I suppose it’s a choice, either Bird or Naughty name ( fnar, fnar )

acceptable for either 🤣

Hi @Hoggs, Cheers for setting up another year, just a quick question, the Naughty names, I take it as many as you can find over the year!!!

 

Or is that 10? 15? + Bonus.

 

Good question, rightly or wrongly I have assumed 10+ bonus, I await correction 😀

oooooooh

 

OK the first 10 gets you 10 points each plus the bonus (50).....

 

but if you want to carry on going if they amuse me you can have another 5 points per additional find.

is that it?

seems a bit open to abuse...

 

How so? 

 

There is nothing to win its just for fun and to get out and about and ride the bike so the only thing people would be cheating is themselves 

 

Should maybe start charging £5 entry and make it a competition and the winner takes all :lol:

You can't always park safely close enough to the tag - Especially when you ride a big bike!

 

Ever tried getting a Triumph Rocket III out of a hedge - I had to find help from a nearby farm - I won't be doing that with the Harley!!!

Ideally your bike in the pick but some you can't get to on bike so your sign and number is enough for us :thumb:

It’s not about the winning its more a go at getting 2nd😀……..…….…..

…… for me it’s the motivation to get out and about, add to this the South West Rally, Welsh Rally, National Rally, Scottish Rally etc. and you can become very focused indeed 🏍️🏍️🏍️
