    If you look closely at the right side of the last pic, you'll see the guy who lost his footing getting off his bike on the bridge. He and his bike went for a little dip.

    OK............. Here's the thing. Around the campfire Saturday evening there was critical discussion regarding matters of great importance including topics such as where to go to find Beef on Weck, wings among other consumables.

    As some of you might of noticed from my perfect physique I'm somewhat of a food aficionado. Unfortunately considering the vast amount of useless trivia within my cranial cavity, there is no room left for any short term memory so I'm unable to recall all of those places we talked about.

    So If those of you would be so kind as to recall here those recommendation food establishments, I would be forever in your dept. I want to put them in my GPS as future destinations.

    Charlie's is good for BoW, plus a few more options:
    The Bar Bill is world famous for their wings, but also has good hand-carved Beef-on-weck (if you can get in the door): http://barbill.com/
    Schwabls: http://www.schwabls.com/
    Eckl's is known for their BoW: https://www.opentable.com/r/eckls-restaurant-orchard-park
    JP's in Hamburg: http://jpfitzgeralds.com/

    And yes, It was the first thing I thought of when we met: "this guy must be a foodie" ;-)

    Here's a shot of the small bike route from Saturday. I'm still feeling the pain from this 8 hour ride. Just a little sore!

    And the GPX file. Please note these are mostly trails that require a permit.

    One way is to upload the video to youtube first. From there, copy the URL link in your search bar, then click the button highlighted in red. Next photo says the rest

    Yes, excellent video. Could I get that picture of me covered in mud? You know people with KLRs have to prove we can actually go off-road, successfully or otherwise.
