Didnt know you had a Strom Albie.
Yup, I replaced my GS 1150 Adv with it. Much lighter and better handling bike then the old Beemer was but not as rugged. Still, it will handle dirt roads like Warloop no problem.

I'm sure it won't happen just like every time I invited your brother to go anywhere. But what the hell. Let's get it Saturday.

Please dont ever compare me to him, there is absolutely nothing even remotely in common between him and I.

Anyway, I have to go to lunch with my Father-in-law saturday, BUT, if I can let the wife go and me skip I'd love to ride down there. I'll keep ya posted.

It would be a fun ride down old 71 to Warloop, and then dirt to Oark or Natural Dam for some grub.

albie, Ted, where in the hell is that cafe?

ive been looking on google maps and street view for about an hour today, and I cant find it. ( although I have not wasted any gas doing so)
I was told its on the west side of 71, just north of winslow...


I havent found the building thus far using the googler though.

Just south of Montgomery Rd. When you look at it with Google, it's covered up by trees.
