This past winter I spent more than my fair share of time on ADVRider while I looked for advice as I mapped out our CC trip. Every now and then I moved over to JoMama and Shiny Things to see what others were up to. I couldn't believe the pictures of old Indians, choppers and Big Daddy Roth stuff that Flug kept coming up with. When I finally asked him were these were he told me about the Motorcyclepedia Museum that was being put together in Newburgh NY. I knew I had to see it. I tried to get a very small bunch together for a weekend ride but it just wouldn't go together. A couple of months ago I decided to do it myself and hopped on the FJR by myself. (I love this bike.) It was a picture perfect early Friday morning and I headed down the southern tier expressway. First gas stop was as I approached the tiny town of Deposit. I often pass by the nearest station to the expressway and go into small towns. I spotted Butterfield's Cafe and had to stop. You could tell that someone that cared rebuilt the place. A couple of real nice guys ran it. I asked how long it had been in business and was told about a year. They then showed me a few pictures of the falling down wreck that it was previously. They did a fantastic job on the building and even added a nice outdoor seating area around back. The food and coffee was great too. As we talked they asked where I was going and I told them about the museum. They said that I should get off the expressway and go along the river. Score! What a nice ride.
