The final piece, a pair of boots, helmet and M-16 with dog tags, represents all of those who have lost their lives fighting for our country.

    Well the post read like it was copied from somewhere so I googled it (typo and all) and found the location pretty quick. I thought it was a cool memorial. Then while looking at street view I just copied the url from google maps. It sounds complicated but it was actually pretty easy to find and only took a minute or two.

    Nice tribute !

    I also went for a ride today, a bit cool, mid to upper 40's but the bike loved it, unfortunately I had to take the Trumpet as the Buells aren't insured at present.
