Waffle House run from San Diego to Phoenix

Waffle House run from San Diego to Phoenix.

Not too much to say here. I have had a craving for the Waffle House since I can usually only get it when I visit family in Georgia, and the closest ones are in the Phoenix area. It was time to get off my ass and ride! Took the week off from work to relax and ride. Monday morning I headed out with a stop in Calexico to take care of some stuff there, then continued out to Phoenix to eat! After the Waffle House I headed to Tonapah for the night. Up early Tuesday morning for a great ride home. Stopped in Quartzite for breakfast, quick stop in Glamis, and a break in Ocotillo Wells.

740 miles traveled
8 gas stops
13 gallons of gas used
60.6mpg Average

Will post my route info a little later after I go pull the GPS off the bike.

Bike ready to go:



My destination:





Stayed the night here:



My ride home on Tuesday:

I didn't get that crazy or go with the chili since I was unsure of plumbing facility would be available that night!

Great post. Thanks for the photos.

I wouldn't make a Waffle House run. But, you're inspiring me to make a run to Neptune's Net in Malibu. I haven't done that in a while.

Next time, post when you're coming out. We'll meet for waffles. Have a safe trip home!

I live in Scottsdale and need to feed my W/H waffle addiction at least once a month. I was looking at your route, I ride either my BMW R1100RT or my classic 82 Suzuki GS850G on that route a minimum of three times a year. My oldest son lives in LaMesa and my Mom still lives ion ElCajon.

Last time I did that was over Thanksgiving only this time I did it a little differently, left the Phoenix area out to Wickenberg, Parker, Joshua Tree National Park, Palm Desert, Warner Springs, Ramona and on in. On the way back through Jacumba and as much of the old 80 as possible then through Brawley, Glamis and back to the Casa. Ended up right at 1000 mi. and a great change up.

Cheers

Yea you need to go to one. Almost cult like following for those that have partaken of it. It's a lot of fried foods and good coffee and none of them are great places to eat but they are all pretty good and inexpensive. Probably wouldn't take a date to one for dinner if you're hoping to score some points......however I wouldn't hesitate to stop for some riding food if I'm anywhere close. And they are open all night. Seems pretty good to me.

No prob, always a good place to start your ride at 0 dark thirty in the am. Get tanked up on carbs and coffee before you hit the long road.
