    Nice bike Mike.....looks like a diamond in the rough. It's about 0430 and I'm off through the Kiber Pass today to Jalalabad. Chow hall isn't open so I'm gonna grab a hand full of grapes and a few apples. Water and MREs are in the cages in case there's no McDonalds on the way (fat chance).

    Should be interesting.....sure wish I was doing it on my GS. Unfortunately, all the motorpool had was a couple of up-armored Land Cruisers. I'll take some pics for you gruvers.:evil

    Take care,

    Katoomer

    It’s been three years sents I’ve gotten to fly and they’ve remodeled the airport, am walking around in there like a camera toting Japanese tourist trying to get a boarding pass you know the look. They changed the way you get tickets now you go up to a computer screen punch in your codes and your good-to-go, I haven’t done this before it was an adventure just to get a boarding pass.

    Checking out the airport

    Headed west on Hwy.20. About 5 miles turned left onto NF 2672 which is this road.

    It was getting dark and I had to get to Roseburg so I high tailed it to Hwy 126 and down I-5.
