    50 miles SW of Burns - on Rte 395 - going to Lakeview, OR the fuel stop, restaurant, gift store at Wagontire is closed.
    Entire town, such as it is, is closed. Looks like it has been for a while.

    sure all the southern OR riders already know this. This message is for the others.

    No problem for the touring bikes, but sport bikes may be on reserve.
    ... isolated, mostly boring section of desert road - the only fuel between Burns and Lakeview is at the successful-looking store
    (town = "Riley") 25 miles west of Burns, just where Rte 395 turns south.
    If I were sport biking it, Riley would be my fuel stop, rather than Burns.
