Boring, OR is probably the one that gets the most attention here. Another favorite of mine is Halfway, OR. Halfway to what or where?

Like Washington we have a lot of indian names that sound funny but I don't consider them funny by themselves. I do get a good laugh listening to outsiders trying to pronounce them. Heck, most outside of the PNW can't even pronounce Oregon right.

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.
