The shearing shed was built for the 1954 Korean war wool boom, but then white ant's got into it a couple of years ago and it fell down.



The bike color is:

What's a white ant? Termites?

Hey! I was in Balad and FOB Prosperity during the end of '09. My CHU was right outside the palace kind of behind the laundry drop.

I only made it to the helipad at Balad. I heard rumors of a swimming pool, but never got to check it out. My posts were always the size of a McDonald's parking lot.

Yeah, not going to lie; Balad in '09 was about as POGey as it gets. Awesome seeing the CWIS cannons go off though. I heard about that same swimming pool. Never got to try and find it.


I will echo what Steve said: Thank you to all the vets on this board and all the rest of the vets everywhere that keep us free.  God bless the men who work in darkness doing the terrible things so the rest of us don't have to.  Most Americans have no idea how good we have it.

So if that's your second bike for commuting, what's your first bike?

I have been pretty much going with just the top case since I acquired my conk. I finally put the side bags on for a 4 state trip next weekend.
