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.

Come on folks, let's have some pics.

They don't have to be pretty. They can even look like this:

Canyon City, Oregon pop 659.




But, if they look like this, so much the better:

Shaniko, Oregon pop 26
