...Oh no I haven't...

I've eaten there multiple times. Have ridden to the end of the road there in Danville, took photos of the old railroad bridge to nowhere, fished off the banks below the bridge and wandered around over there before some millionaire built a huge home on the south edge, overlooking the RR bridge and lake. When I read of those "off the beaten path" Mom n Pop cafes, I sometimes "ride to eat". You're right about breakfast there!

He missed out on the Southernaire at the south end. I love their breakfast.

I just found out about this from a friend in NY on the Morini list and was looking at the website today. Sounds like a great place and a good place to see some old bikes. Poked around a bit and found Goose gap road and Battle hill, much more fun than Chapman highway!

How big of a tree? Is this something that a couple of us can handle with a hand saw and a rope or is this chainsaw and block and tackle level? Or do you think the FS will be motivated to remove it sooner rather than later?

With all the rain this year, there's no telling how many tree falls they've had to deal with. I figure we are lucky there haven't been more trails closed this year.

Rick's Rendezvous starts in a couple days! Hope you folks have a great time. I may see you guys out on the roads, but won't be at the rally this go around. How many of the locals are hitting this one?

3 pictures were on 434, the road behind the guard rail. The map picture was somewhere (why we needed the map) near buzzards roost.
