    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.

    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

    Wow, as many contributions by 8:20 today as in all of last month.

    Amazing, what a shot of Shogs can do for a thread.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for your contribution. Cool pics, they are interesting, unlike the one below, which is... how can I put it-
