Just got back...

We ended up skipping out on Strattons cause it was going to be an hour wait. Went down the street and hit a Mexican place. It was good.

istbenz, threadkiller, Gil and....and...ummm...dangit I forgot his handle. He's a member here but hardly ever posts and just happened to be riding by. I hope he chimes in.

Ya know, we got to talking and I completely forgot to take pics. Brian got one just as we were gearing up to leave.

Anyhow, it was good to meet you guys. And remember, what happens in Ashland City, stays in Ashland City.

Laugh



The Inmates after a fine meal at El Rey Mexican Restaurant in Ashland City

Had a great time with the guys even though we were unable to eat at Stratton's. A nice little ride home on some backroads proved to be quite enjoyable (it always is!). Matt and I were talking about a little road that he came in on but he couldn't get his GPS to cooperate and tell us where it was. I just set out and headed in the general home direction avoiding as many main roads as I could. I ran across this creek crossing along the way-

As you can see, the Adventure Ninja had no trouble (I know, I know, it was only about a foot deep but it was a first for it)

Piddled south a bit more on little roads til I ended up in the hood down by Meherry (my Second Ammendment rights made me feel at ease as I was passing through).

From there I explored Downtown Nashvegas a bit more and hopped on the interstate and headed home. I was cruising along when I passed this guy-

all I can say is WOW!

Hope to see some more of you guys at next month's get together.

BA

I was afraid there would be a long wait. El Rey was an excellent 2nd choice.

That must be Marrowbone Creek, at Big Marrowbone Road. Dropped a KLR there once, in Febuary!

I resemble that remark, except it wasn't me!
Sorry I couldn't make it - granddaughters 6th birthday party today! (I'm 38 ... don't bother doing the math - what happens in AC stays in AC, right!?)

It's unanimous - ElRays was definitely the best second choice!

Tried and Failed

I hate that I didn't get to meet some more of the central TN gang.
I didn't get started until about 11:30 this morning and did too much goofin' around on the way up. Made it to just south of Centerville when I realized I'd never make it to AC by 4:00. Goofed around Hickman, Perry, Decatur, Wayne counties some more then headed home. There's a lot of fine exploring to be done in that area. I got caught in a queen mother beeotch of a storm and made it back to the house about 10:00.
Anyway....maybe I can make the next one.

I'm gonna throw out a suggestion. TN Steve has mentioned a place in Joelton that sounds good. I'll get him to chime in w/ details. (that German place?)

I know an awesome place on second ave in Nashville for some cardiac sandwiches or donut burgers! Owned by a biker and always can find places to fit bikes!

well this Saturday is the third Saturday, right? So are there any plans to meet and eat?

Once again I probably can't go anyway. If I can talk the little woman into it, we may take the cage and go to Paris Landing. They are having the Boss Hoss Rally there this weekend, including a BBQ cookoff that is open to the public. My Dad lives near there and he wants to go, that's the reason for the cage.
