I am sure Elvis and I can find some water crossings to lead you through to help cure that. We need JDS3 reinstated That JD Soaked Sock Syndrome for any of the new comers.

I haven't been down to Oark in a long time. Pie and a burger would hit the spot mighty fine.

With friends like you...and Elvis...and Doc...and 10Cup...and Charlie it's a miracle my socks ever dried out. Guess it's been a long, long time since I've ridden.

Welcome home JD. What was that first bike photo of?

My bike is under heavy maintenance over at Mossey Creek and Friday I get my nuts cut, and next Thursday I go back to work for a week, so I won't be able to ride for awhile. Be sure somebody gets a photo for me of you in the water.

Thanks Elvis. It's good to be back.

Me in the water? Not yet. The water's too cold. Brrr.

The first bike was a BSA, but I don't know what year. I'd guess it's from the 50's. I saw several of them on this trip, some in almost mint condition, but was unable to get my camera out fast enough to catch them as they went past me.

Lots of cool older cars too. Here are a few that were parked in the plaza.



And the taxi (56 Ford Fairlane wagon with a diesel motor and a 4 speed + overdrive transmission) our group toured around in, complete with our hip driver (on the left)...



Lots of fun.

Dizzer Charlie and Ray had both suggested eating some time at an area called "The Hill", know for Italian cuisine. I heartily endorse their endorsements. We ate at a restaurant called Gian-Tony's. Awesome food. I had chicken cannelonni, which was flavourful and artfully prepared. Kathe had the house fettuccine, which was prepared with shrimp and mushrooms. Both were done with a white wine sauce with a touch of marinara added for flavour and colour. The wait staff were attentive without being intrusive and the atmosphere of the place was subdued and peaceful. Well worth the money spent for the meal. I will make another trip to The Hill to sample some of the other eateries scattered about.

Since surgery is in roughly 3 weeks I guess I better get some more saddle time in before I'm grounded by the surgeon. He says recovery will still take app 6 weeks, I told him I looked forward to proving him wrong. In the meantime, I'll live vicariously through ride reports and BS.

I reckon I need to go see when the next brekkie is, and where...
Good to here your visit went well. Let me know what kind of beer you like!
