    It was pretty brutal. The line was about 5 deep and when I got to the cashier, all the blueberry scones were sold out. I damn near starved on account of that!

    That's a long distance ride compared to the Harley guy down the street I swear he doesn't go more than 5 miles he's never gone more than 15 minutes.

    Charts, compass, and sextant. I can plot a route from Starbucks to Starbucks while sipping a large, brown colored sugar beverage. I did acquiesce to technology a while back and mounted a Loran C unit to the former Harley. It all tied in pretty well with the Parrot and eye patch. But the BMW wrecked it for me. The Loran unit won't interface with the fancy GPS holder on the bike, which makes for an awesome ash tray in case anyone is interested. I sold the Loran with the Harley, but I'm stuck with that damn parrot. It just says "Bro" all day.

    We should make a group out of it... like Iron Butt riders.

    Must supply photo of time stamped soy latte receipt while sitting in the parking lot with the Starbucks sign in the background.
    Mail this with $20 and you get a personalized "Cafe Expeditions" certificate!!
    Complete two in a month and get a "Cafe Expeditions Veteran" certificate!!

    What if you don't ride a BMW? You got to be ready to rumble if you think you're going to pull up to a Starbucks on anything else, those Bimmer Boys get mighty territorial. Can the rest of us use Dutch Bros or Tim Horton's?

    I rode my Indian to Saudi-Aurora (Aurora, CO for reference, its the extra congested and crappy corner of Denver) for work this morning. Only moderate risk to life/limb but I the return trip back out will be true test of my skills and endurance. I might have to seek refuge at the Caribou Coffee to regain my wits.
