Saturday Afternoon Ride
Escondido to Seal Beach, CA
We ended up in Seal Beach at a place called Beachwood BBQ. We had a nice waitress by the name of Jacque that guided us to some nice beers and gave the hot tip of vinegar and Tabasco for the fried green tomatoes. I tried the venison chili, which was nice and spicy. I think Tanya is glad she is not here now though.
Twenty some odd years ago I was riding out to Hermosa Beach to meet my then wife at our favorite watering hole for lunch. Soon after being seated, this guy I recognized vaguely came up to talk. In a nutshell, he had a Harley-Davidson Sportster and wanted to know where I went to have work done on my bike. I told him I did all my own work. He told us a story of woe, having brought his bike into a local shop that was notorious for doing crappy work. To make a long story short, I gave him my address and told him to stop by and I would teach him to work on his own bike.
My photo of the day for day 248 is of Phil, his wife and I, who after 20 plus years have remained friends and go on occasional bike rides together. It is true, you do meet the nicest people on a Harley-Davidson.
Brought the Limited in for its 1,000 mile service. Turns out this was also the first day on the showroom floor for the bike I traded in. They chromed the front end and cleaned her up real nice. She looked good but I am happy with my decision. Day 153 of my picture a day.
