UpSt8, you had me with your post back east that went something like "look at what my balls did."
Glad to see you getting out out there, and posting the nonsense.

Part one continued again


After what I would consider a successful first exposure to the glory of dirt road riding we were hungry as hostages. Off to Ventucopa,Elevation 2999' Pop:92 for some grub at The Place or Santa Barbara Pistachio Factory.

Guess my memory isn’t what it used to be... pistachio factory hasn’t served sit down meals for years, but it wasn’t a total loss. Moe.ron scored some pistachios and we rapped with a Forest Ranger about getting us some jobs someday. Pay might suck, but damn if they don’t have a nice office to work in. Asked about the road conditions in Cuddle Valley too, I could see from where we were they had snow. I wanted to do Quatal Canyon up into Pine Mountain, but moe.ron was not feeling it. Made the conservative call to avoid mutiny and stayed down low in the valley.



Anyway off to The Place, the chow there is decent, the rootbeer delicious and the ambiance is nice enough.


What? Closed? Shit, didn’t plan on that.



Hey! I know! Let’s hit Reye’s Creek Bar and Grille!





Only went by there once before to go hiking, but didn’t stop.












WOW!! Cool, cool, cool…..cool.
Atmosphere of out the ying, yang…cast of characters, humorist, and friendly, down home, good ole boys and girls tucked away in this hidden nook. The food was goliath in portions!! We sat right by the kitchen and it was like a parade of food whenever orders came out. Moe.ron and I ooooooo and aaaaahhhhing as each plate passed. Food Porno is what moe.ron called it.





moe.money moe.problems


Stuffed to the gills and with the sun getting close to golden hour we made a run for the mountains. Important to get up and over this time of year…Icy Roads in SOCAL? You bet your ass.







Back through 33…snow in them there hills.

create an animated gif



To “civilization”






Till next time…. hopefully soon…ride fast, take chances.

Yep, I gotta start working out or something! I will be the first to admit that 20 miles of dirt wore me out, my legs are sore as hell today! Its only going to get better.

That 14LB turkey sandwich I had for lunch didn't help either, sure was friggin' good though. I was pretty pissed The Place was closed! No more leaving the house without breakfast or at least throwing something in the tail bag.

BUT, I follow the turn signals, I have faith Sensei will not purposely try to kill me, yet...

Rule #1 for crashing:
Don't try to save the bike.




The bike is an evil bitch that deserves to fall in the mud. Let it get what it deserves. Do not insert parts of your body between the ground and the bike.

In fact, practice now. Go knock the bike over in the driveway and give us your best Captain Morgan pose. We'll wait here for the pic.
