Go Postal pics

How about, whenever you find your self in a strange town, you snap a pic of your bike in front of the local Post Office?

Why? Why not? Think of it as a really short ride report. You are saying: "This town exists, and I was there on my motorcycle." Post enough of them, and people might think you are well traveled.

A post office can be interesting or bland, we don't care. The smaller, the older, the more remote, the better. But any P.O. will do. Maybe bigger is good too.

I'll start things off with Timber, Oregon pop 155.

Worth the trip just for the road and the scenery on the way.
