    Good to get a personal recommendation from someone who liked the food!

    Good catfish and good brisket is sometimes hard to find. I'll have to check out the catfish... I have had the brisket, and it IS good.

    They have catfish "nuggets" as an appetizer - also very good.

    Stock up on tires!



    At least rear tires, but you'll save money on the fronts.

    all the cool kids are going turbo. I mean, turbo 4cyl is the way to save fuel right?
    :)

    That said, anyone seen any good deals locally on helmets lately? I need a new one, and my head seems to be anywhere from a medium to a XXL depending on the brand.
    And some brands seem to think my chin is closer to Jay Leno sized, and the chin bar crushes my chin.

    I'm helmet shopping too. Since my neck surgery, I've been searching for lightweight helmets - under 3lbs. And yeah, I hear ya on the fitment issues. :rolleyes
    I'm liking AGV - seem to have many shell sizes and some lightweight models.

    The logic is meet and ride... Then come back and eat/drink.
