However, I can't play, I have been working on finals, and now I will be leaving soon for two weeks back east and limited computer access. Have fun!

Laugh This thread is way to addicting !!

I was able to make out the O.C.Co on the side of the building so just for grins I
checked out the Oregon registry of historical buildings and there it was, that led
me to the town

Pretty much out of recent pics so I scanned in some older ones from back when
I first started riding the KLR so here we go....

What area am I standing In and what is the name of the road in the background ?
