LOL....I know a Brad Green. I figured Radam was in the same "vintage club". I ran across your last ride report a while back. It looks like you guys are having a great time. I'm glad to see you guys out on two wheels. Dont worry we wont bust in on your breakfast rides, but heck you can stop in ours anytime. Life is short and I'm just happy to get out on a bike these days.

We take our time getting where we are going and usually spend some amount of time changing spark plugs, wiping oil off our shields and toping off small gas tanks. If that sounds like you then I would think your welcome to ride. Here's the link to last years "scramble"

We have a lot of fun. The scramble was also a great deal of fun and at $1000 of less for the bike, almost anyone can afford to get out and ride. The guy who arranged it rode about 650 miles on a kawasaki 400? I dont think he has more than $500 in it. The engine appears to externally oiled and the intake is made from plumbing fittings. I could not make it across town on it, and he rode it over 600 miles. It was great. We had 5 people last year and hope to have a few more this year.

i would guess that it is vintage and would be worthy of an exception. You may not want to be seen with us though. what kind of cramps are you a fan of anyway?

I think Brad just summed it all up pretty well. I really hate to put any sort of rules to the whole thing, but the idea is for vintage riders to get out and actually ride their bikes. Vintage is not restricted to brands so much as it is age. If you show up on a stretched out Busa, you missed the point completely. Not being elitist, just getting like minded folk together. If a 54 Panhead isn't vintage, than everyone that meets wouldn't come close to the criteria.

As for the scramble, that was by far the most fun I have ever had on a motorcycle. Ever. Period. Next year hopefully will be just as much fun. There is a link to the blog for next years run in my sig. It would be great to see some new faces next year.

It would also be nice if you didn't plan it for the middle of the week next year. I wanted to go so bad!

Thumb Fleur de Lis Grill

I posted this in the AR-BS thread, then remembered this one...DOH!

This is for the Fleur de Lis Grill in Gentry AR, on the East side of AR 59 before the stoplight if your going Northbound from AR 412.

Just got back from Fleur de Lis Grill in Gentry, they have some dang good vittles. I had crawfish eteufee and my wife had the fried catfish and shrimp dinner. The food was awesome, and the beer was cold!
Shiner Bock FTW

If you like your Cajun food spicy, tell them when you order. After numerous whiny-assed people complaining about it being too hot, they toned it down a few notches.
The couple we went with were from New Orleans, and it is their favorite place to eat, that should speak volumes for the food authenticity.

CLOSED :(

I know the is the arkansas thread, but I took a little ride up to Stockton MO to the Squeeze Inn for a Squeeze with cheese. Ruth and Kenny the owners moved from Sacramento (my home town) after being featured on Diners, Drive ins and Dives. Sold the original Squeeze Inn and opened up another after Ken couldn't stand retired life. Sadly Ken passed away about two years ago. Ruth still cooks up a great hamburger, and the tacos are the best!

the famous Squeeze with cheese (missing the San Fran sour dough)

catfish

Will be attending the War Eagle fair in Mid Oct near Eureka Springs and needing some suggestions for trip home. Will probably be in the Russellville/Hot Springs area for our last night on the road. Any really good catfish stop suggestions. Our meandering is very unplanned so don't rule out something a little off path. Thank you.
