It is a unique building for sitting out in rural America a ways from any metro area.

I was in the old building used as tribute to pioneers, but haven't been in this modern site.

Thanks on the /5. It's quite a machine. looks wise the R90s bars and lack of handlebar mirrors changed it significantly.

Without wind protection the bars move you down and forward into a nice position. The solo seat is great. Running along at about 65 its a nice all day capable touring machine. Unless it rains. The front drum is useless in the rain. I don't dare touch when wet. And poor vis or night lighting is a limitation.

Airheads are just really simple, reliable machines with a lot of functionality and character.

Without the bags.

John Brown was one bad dude. If ever in Topeka the mural of him in the capital building is quite a site.

That is a nice airhead!

Been there, and on a motorcycle in 2009, but I can't find any photos

Too bad, as the game will prolly stall out on another limit Tag? Time to shorten it up? Winter and summer limits? :-))

I REALLY do hope to get back in the game soon and I'll TRY to stay off the sidewalks! And off of Private Property! AND away from NO TRESPASSING signs! AND inside of the new mileage radius! AND within the time limits! AND with clear focused pictures! AND ..... ????? Hope I haven't missed anything else!

I guess others know where it is, and it must be at some distance, but I need another hint.

I kinda thought the same thing. But maybe I've seen the building so many times..... No, wait. Gonna have to go back in the previous photo tag pages.

Edit: It hasn't been a tag before, but he's posted that pic. Hmmm....time to put my thinking cap on.

I have been wanting to visit that place. If the tag stick around for a while I might have to run up there and get it.
