    I got a job in Kenosha, Wisconsin a few months ago. To date, I haven't checked it out very much. So today, I decided to do just that.

    After scoping out the downtown area on Google Maps, I went to get the steed:

    Not a bad selection of bikes today: two Harleys an FJR and F800GS in the back and my SMax:

    I rode up Sheridan Rd. to the downtown area until I found Franks' Diner:

    Let's check out the menu. Pretty interesting story, how this diner started. Give it a read!

    There are some more witty sayings on the back:

    I wound up getting a tuna melt with a side of coleslaw a cup of chili and that nice old school Wisconsin beer. It was the best tuna melt I've had in my life.

    After a nice lunch, it was time to head over to the yacht club and check out my other ride:

    (I jest)

    There's still a little light house here too!

    After all that, it was time to head back to the salt mine. Thanks for reading!

    Thanks for taking us along. Good reminder of lunch ride options, I have done that when I really needed a ride (mototherapy) and reading above encourages me do get back into that habit. Cheers
