    Anybody want to give this a shot?

    I had a pair of really nice old glass license plate reflectors on a antique motorcycle and I lost one of them on the road. I attached the map route and a picture of the one remaining reflector I have. Thanks, Sidevalve45.

    Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave in a well preserved body, But rather to slide in sideways, Totally wore out shouting, Holy ****...What a ride!

    I was picking up at least 4 places where people lost something from a motorcycle. Think back if you made any stops at the bottom circle with a line leading into it. The other 2 not marked where at the top.

    I attached an updated map showing my location and going to Black River Falls. I have walked both sides of the road for a total of about six miles but still no luck. It could have ended up in the tall grass and I'll never find it. I'm bummed about it.��

    I'm picking the other reflector up right here. I hope you can find it

    Between Saturday and Sunday I walked both sides of the road heading towards Black River Falls for a total of about 8 miles. Believe it or not I found the reflector relatively in good shape. I got to the point I had decided to turn around crossed the road and started heading back to the car. I went 30 or 40 yards and then I found it. It was about a mile from your last locate.

    Thanks a lot for the feedback! For me the greatest treasure is knowing how good my dowsing results are turning out. Maps do have limitations as to how close to target marked. It's work but persistence can pay off.

    One mile off... That's a very large amount of distance away from the target man. Seems to me like both of us were highly inaccurate. Maps have limitations but Google Maps imagery is usually no more than 7 meters off the actual position. All anyone can really say at this point is one of us got lucky with the dice. Good experiment though.

    Yes, I'm in favor of some experiments. I only checked one route. There did seem to be more than one place someone lost a piece from a motorcycle.
