    Ditto. I have a few stories......:evil New owners are clueless, going to ruin the business just a matter of time. Josh and company will make a dent in their business.

    BBBQ ends Saturday, and most are rumbling out Sunday am. I would say anyplace out of Fayetteville will be a normal Sunday lunch crowd. Lets go.

    Matt: I know why I like BBB bikers! Someone slower than me! I was going 11mph!! behind a pirate couple, until they stopped at the GREEN light at West and Dickson to discuss which way to go, yelling over cranked radios and life-saving pipes. I was laughing so hard just thinking of your response, I nearly fell off the scoot.

    http://bbslawnsidebbq.com/ Closer and has live Blues everynight except Monday when they're closed.

    The owners spent their honeymoon [many years ago] in New Orleans and they go back every year so they have a small section of Cajun food on the menu.

    I'm up for a Sunday Ride out of town away from the pirates. Haven't been back there in years, well went back last year to ride the Yamaha S10 on a Thursday Afternoon.

    Just came from Memphis weekend before last. Did Rendezvous for ribs and learned I am too old to hang on Beale St late at night. :freaky

    That would be an over-nighter not a day trip?

    Not "butt-hurt" at all. I've attended several of these "events". Even had a booth hawking European motorcycles about eleven years ago. It's changed over time into a huge disruption by a bunch of carnys and pirates rather than a fun local/regional event.

    That's why, beginning in 2005, I've spent half of these BBBQ weekends somewhere else, hanging out with local people, and enjoying parade-free highways.

    Santa Fe sounds good about right now...

    All I can say is that Todd and I road out to Jay OK and the only bike we got stuck behind for a short distance turned out to be a bit entertaining. Younger guy on a Sportster decided to show off. He stood up with one foot on the seat and the other kicked back behind him. He was showing off his mad stunta skills! :lol3:clap

    Hey Mouth... we all know you have issues... so might as well give this "anti-BBBQ" thing a rest. :D I remember you were on a seemingly endless tirade last year, too. :rofl

    Along my many off-roading friends, I have some good friends that are "pirates"... they're good folk. Sure, they enjoy biking in a different way than I do... but they love to ride and ride often. It's two wheels after all... why fight among ourselves (motorcyclists from different persuasions) when as a whole we need all the coalition we can get?

    Pop you a top.. sit back and chill. :1drink

    Enjoy BBBQ for the absurd spectacle it is! It will all be over before the weekend's over.

    I understand your point, and further more I do agree!

    But, you do not know me, so you really have no idea, this is not a tirade, im not butthurt, I am simply talking about the few dipshit assholes, that sort of taint the whole event for me.

    I like some aspects, my father lights up everytime he sees an old cushman eagle ( he had one) , so he and I and my son often times walk down to WAC where that red one sits during the peak days.

    I truly like the custom bikes, the ones built by people that know how to heat, bend hammer, and weld, not the ones where some dentist browses a catalog and orders the fender to match the tank to match the seat.

    Overall, my main beef is the way some of the bikers completely disregard the traffic signals, and stop signs downtown, im just trying to get to work, not intervene in a dentist with a small peckers dream of a "freedom ride"


    I am NOT anti harley, I am anti dipshit.
