    Hwy.138 is the beautiful road that goes through the Umpqua National forest with something like 24 waterfalls with about 17 along this Hwy. Need to come back and spend more time here :thumbup

    It's interesting that you found Bakers wayside since that used to be Bakers bike. Did you know that Mike Doyle (shop in Roseburg) used to have an aftermarket shop on Rabbit Creek Road called Rabbit Hole? Small world. Now, where are the pictures of the mud? Barb

    First mechanical: I pull in to Diamond Lake Loop road to fuel-up and I feel the ft. brakes acting funny. Crap something got in one of the holes in the disc brake and gouged the brake pad and rotor up :boid There was a high spot in the metal that every time it went a round it would grad the pad and shudder the bike. I grab a file and start hacking away.

    All fixed I head south on Nf 4795 next to Diamond lake to Nf 6592 and hook back up to Hwy.138

    A file. I'm assuming that's just to remove any surface metal that's been raised up in the gouging process?

    Is Mike Doyle related to the Roseberg Auto Wrecking yard? I've ridden the hills around Roseberg with John Doyle.

    By the way, the original Wolbert Machine Co. was in Roseberg.

    Downtown, Uptown, Main Street what-ever you call it trying to find that purrfect eating establishment:dg
    I end up at Subway upon entering I notice this guy with a name tag that says Rocket Man 53,000 sold. I order a Turkey/Ham toasted setting down I ease drop on his conversation :ear the guy he’s talking to is having problems with his girl friend he’s talking about relationships is he a counselor, psychiatrist ?

    [​IMG]

    He was all out of Krokets when I met him, he makes about 20 units fresh every morning and what he does is walks up and down the streets to sell them, he sell out by noon.

    I find a big field behind Pelican Cinemas. The place looks like they do some kind of dirt racing there bicycle may be.
    Camp is set up and I start messing with my new gadgets, this was my first time alone with them out in the field to have some quality time with. Xm, radio/ Xm weather gizmo listening to some toons playing with the camera settings.
    Trying something different here
