Charleston, SC ADVdinner

Title says it all.

I see other regions have these- I'd like to have one in the area.

Who's interested in a monthly ADVdinner at a restaurant in the area?

Hi, guys!

Count me in!
As long as I'm in town, I'm coming to dinner, just say when and where.

sounds good, guys. If it's soon, I may be caging it. Just had a down. Haven't been able to inspect the bike, though I was able to ride the rest of the way to work. Something feels "off" though. Knee feels tweaked, too. :(

I know, I know-- if I wore proper ATGATT, (armored pants), this wouldn't'a happened. I'm off to NewEnough to order 'em right now...

Thanks for asking via PM and the like if all's ok, folks- I'm fine. Knee swelled a bit but an Ace bandage took care of it. Just some minor rash. Let's hear it for abnormally light traffic. :)

So what kind of restaurant are we looking for, when's best for you folks, etc? I would probably advise we keep it somewhat moderate in terms of price, and off the beaten path (ie: not Applebee's, maybe something local?) Whatever you folks want, let me know.

restaurant choices

There's a Brazilian steak house in Goose Creek on Red Bank Road that's awesome (a little pricey, though)!
There's a great Mexican restaurant on St. James across from Gilligan's that's excellent and reasonable.
Wild Wings is always great! Lots of good choices out there!


Let's eat!

Ya'll up for some barbeque?
Best barbeque on the planet: Chicken Comers. Columbus, GA.

Although, dad just called and told me that they've got a family member's come to Mt Pleasant and set up shop. Dad tried it and said it was the same recipe.

How's this Sunday sound? I have to work Saturday. :(

Of course, democracy rules- so: weeknight, or weekend, folks? Don't mind me, I'll be along when I can. :)

BBQ place is called Ray's BBQ, on Coleman Blvd in Mt. Pleasant.

Just went there for lunch with Dad. Stuff is gooooood. Boston butt, brisket, ribs, all manner of sides, and that's just the stuff I remember.

Open 1000-800 Monday-Saturday, closed sunday. I'd suggest we go Saturday, but I have to work.

If ya go without me and want the hot stuff, ask for Phil's Phenix, AL "Special" hot sauce (and bring lots of water with ya. :) )

So- Andolini's Pizza on Rivers Ave this time?

The 7th or the 14th work better for everyone? I think we determined the second Wednesday of each month to be the night for the dinners last meeting. That work with everyone?

Andolini's on the web:
http://www.andolinis.com/

Pizza. (HUUUUGE slices)
Beer. :)
Riders.

Sound like a good plan?

They have slices, full pies, calzones, and salads. If this doesn't meet your diet needs (some folks have problems with the acidity) let us know- we don't mind trying another restaurant- it's about the people, not he grub.....

hopefully, this weekend.

I need to order new fork seals most likely. Since I've had no oil in these, they're likely shot. Kawi dealer hasn't got them in stock, and I'm still waiting for the $5 oring I ordered two weeks ago for the starter (grrrrrr)

Will be using ATF for fluid, stock springs, and putting in a longer spacer made of PVC above the springs. Need to replace my stock boots, as they're in pieces at present.

The idiots at Cyclegear kept showing me shock boots when I asked for fork seals. The new crew over there SUCKS. Don't think they even ride.

I may just go ahead and top off the forms with ATF tonight when I get home from work, so I can see if the seals weep. If they don't, I won't sweat it. Still gonna have to pull them from the triples though, to install boots. While I'm in there, might as well adjust the headset too.

OB topic: No, I ain't payin'. :P
