    That looks like a fairly recent install. Less rust than some bikes that still roll!

    Ya know Mr Peterman, we’ve met before! At one of A J’s events a couple of years ago. The wife (Poopiejoe1) and I live near Canby but my wife grew up in Cottage Grove and spent a lot of family time all over the mountains around there. Me, I’ve just been riding for 48 years anywhere and every where I could. If y’all were closer we would definitely join you.

    Sadly I am cursed with a horrible memory. I have been on so many roads and seen wonderful scenes, and can't remember where or when,,like OMB's post,,the old Bandon cut-off road,, knew I had been there,, no recall as to where or when. Probably been past the bike frame mailbox too,,but,?????

    Here's a hint: The inspiration for my RideFriday destination choice was a post by BackCountryCruizer in the last couple of months. My picture was taken less than 5 miles from where the one he shared was taken.

    You got it! Taken on Government Mt Road, heading to the start of the OBDR at the top of Tiger Canyon. Walla Walla is just out of the photo to the right.
    You're up.
