    There must just be so many tags in EASTERN NY that no one has an interest in them anymore.

    When the weather gets too crappy for most riders the tag will move out of the east. :evil

    This is what I was up to when Old_Lion called me about the bike problems they were having up in Maine (see other thread).

    Got it!

    Hope it is OK that I didn't ride my fat ass up on thier lawn and rut it up.
    School is out for today.

    I had tried to stop at the Genoa Hotel, the King Ferry Hotel and later the Aurora Hotel - none of them are open that early. So I kept going on up 90 until I got to 20, where I headed WEST! Hear that you guys? WEST! I thought about something in Seneca Falls, but decided that wasn't quite far enough. So I kept going on to Geneva, where I found this place:

    It can be identified from the road by this sign:

    I included the sign about the buffet for the hungry ones out there. You know, the ride to eat types. For those that need more information I am trying to wring the coordinates out of the cheesy gps app in my Blackberry. I figured the buffet sign would be good enough for Mark_O as he can find food from states away.:dg

    I'm game.:lol3 It's about 40 miles shorter for you round trip as it is for me one way. It would have been a nice ride for yesterday, although I didn't have a bad ride yesterday..

    Yesterday I had a nice 35 mile round trip work commute to bracket my 12 hour shift in the factory. That's why I was eye balling the weather channel as my wife was getting ready for work this morning. She called me from work and asked if I was going for a little ride. So, I guess 200 or so miles is a little ride. More would have been better, so I rode up to meet her at work, went to Doug's Fish Fry in Cortland for dinner and just got done riding home from there in the first rain I saw all day. I just went fast enough the rain missed me and got everyone else.

    There it goes! Westward ho! Did you have the lunch buffet? I have had a dinner/wedding reception and a breakfast brunch the following day, but never a lunch.
