How about a ride the friday after Thanksgiving?

On Wednesday we ride to dinner and on Saturday we ride to breakfast. Those and any other rides are coordinated and (sometimes) reported here.

How about a ride the friday after Thanksgiving?

A few years ago we took a nice ride the day after Thanksgiving and had a nice lunch in Jackson. Anybody up for that this year weather permitting? Tom Moe

Welp, I got one. Let's go to historic Waterloo, CA for lunch. We can take a few hours getting there, winding around some favorite roads, past Camanche Reservoir.
We've done a very similar route before, but I think I've come up with a few interesting twists.
Go to the RCB web site and look for the Friday after Thanksgiving ride near the middle of the main page.

Looks interesting.

And close enough to Lockeford Sausage to pick up a few links, to boot.

Oh, no! You can still do both!

Let's see, Kohl's opens at 3AM, then K-Mart at 4AM, JC Penney at 5AM, Best Buy at 6AM, Macy's at 7AM and you can still make the Waffle place at 8AM.

Is this a great country or what?!?! ;-)

Shopping? I'll leave it to the wife. I'd rather ride & engage in the consuming
of tubular titilations of totally tempting tasties. Cetainly wouldn't be the
wurst thing we could do.

I did show enough intestinal fortitude to stop and get some breakfast sausage and linguica on the way home!

Looks as though there was a pretty good turnout when I drove past the Waffle Barn this morning. I would have stopped but, well, it wouldn't have looked too good being in uniform and moving my stuff from one fire station to another.

Sooooo, how was it? Come on, I've only got my F800GS with worn dual sport tires on right now since BMW bought my K13GT back so vicariously loving through you monkeys who went is it right now.

Well, I was expecting the weather to be very cold, but with the help of a Gerbing liner, and generally warmer-than-expected temps, the ride was perfect.

Made it to the Waffle Barn just in time to miss breakfast, so it was on to the ride with the group. Wending (do BMW riders wend?) our way to Ione via Irish Hill Road and a needed coffee offload. From there it was a nice and easy ride past Camanche, with a short stop to allow the local mini cattle herd roundup. Then on to Waterloo for lunch. The meat sanwiches and spaghetti-side was looking good, but I appreciated the Clam Chowder in a sourdough bowl. Authentic SF out there - complete with Giants memorobilia from the Candlestick and Polo Grounds days.

While most of the group headed directly home, Fred and I stopped off at the Lockford Sausage house, where we saw our only CHP of the day, as he was leaving the Sausage store with his bag-o-links. Picked up some Andouille, Wisconsin Brats, Hawaiian Luau (recommended, though I as yet have no idea what's in it) and some awesome Teryaki Beef Jerky - very good. Fred took the direct route home to Elk Grove, while I took the more 'scenic' route through Clay Station, and on to the shadows of the Rancho MIstakeo cooling towers to EDH.

Good temps, nice roads (Latrobe Rd has been repaved!) and good company. Nice way to spend Black Friday away from the crowds. This date's a keeper for next year.

Very well said, Bob. It was a perfect route, twisty, but away from the foul weather conditions higher up in the foothills. The Waterloo Inn has always been a favorite destination of mine and never disappoints. This was the best way to spend Black Friday, and we should definitely make it a tradition.

Minus my kickstand switch giving me a little hiccup in Ione, it was beautiful day and great fellowship.
The clam chowder in Waterloo was also great. Cameron
