Ride to Eat! Cabana on the River


We picked up the Moto Guzzi on Sunday afternoon and rode up to Fort Ancient.  Eric was on his R100S.  What a lovely ride.  The Moto Guzzi is such a joy to ride.  The little sport fairing is low enough that you get the feel of a naked bike, but you are shielded from some of the wind and some of the bugs.  It seems that the fork job Autobahn Craftwerks did on the bike make quite a difference.  No more wobble when I go over bumps.  The breaks are working better too.  Unfortunately the side stand on this bike is very strange.  It is tucked in tight between the footpeg and the shift lever.  I can’t get to it when I am sitting on the bike.  It’s spring loaded so that is springs up when there is no weight on it.  I have to get off the bike, then push the stand down and hold it down while I lean the bike on it.  As soon as I lean the bike up the stand springs up.  This is a tip-over waiting to happen.  I’m going to have to see what can be done to change that. 

After our ride we came home and did a few chores.  Then we rode out to the Cabana on the River for dinner.  We had never been there before.  It was a nice ride out there.  The whole place is outside.  Many tables are under a huge picnic shelter, there are more tables outside close to the river.  They do not have a fancy menu, it’s your basic bar food.  They do not have fancy beer.  They do have a very open and friendly atmosphere.  This is a good spot to go with groups of people or to meet up with friends.  We ended up staying much later than we meant too, we were chatting with the couple at the table next to us.

Eric checked my tire pressure when we arrived at Cabana on the River

We weren't the only ones who rode that night

It was great to sit outside and watch the sunset while we ate

Eric and Tom still chatting away. It was close to midnight by the time we got home.
