Instead riding to Duluth, I think I will put a new belt on the Buell. Thankfully, I ordered one back in March.

Barnyard, I put off Duluth until tomorrow, in case you still fancy a ride.

Today I am misbehaving in the shoppe instead.

Splendid. It'll be even nicer tomorrow than today. Either way, no worries.

Ride up to Duluth via Brainerd and I'll meet you at The Barn for lunch. The PIE there might be even better than SPC.

I'll let you know. It's too much of a detour for tomorrow, but I could be persuaded to ride there instead of Duluth. I'll see who else is in, and let you know. What time are you thinking for lunch, and are you actually going?

Departing for Brainerd in T-minus 30 minutes. First stop: The Barn. Prolly go back for a second slice of PIE later in the day too.

A simple cruise up and back - nothing too special, but a very pleasant day. Proper breakfast (sausage AND bacon), trinkets and baubles from Aerostitch, lunch in Duluth (at the Clyde Iron Works - very acceptable) and a stop off for pie and coffee on the way back.

Pie was - well, it was OK, but not fabbo, but even mediocre pie is OK. The boring local at the diner breakfast bar added some, er, local colour. In the end the only way to stop him talking was to leave the diner................




Sorry to ditch you Spike, just a question of amount of daylight hours.
