Alice’s Resturant – Woodside, CA

Posted in Alice's Resturant, California, Food, Motorcycle, Motorcycle Parking, Motorcycle Rides, Motorcycles, Restaurant on September 17, 2017 by DRF

This place, Alice’s Resturant has been on my “bucket list” for a few years now.  I finally made it.  It’s located South of San Francisco in Woodside, CA.

It’s my understanding this restaurant was named after the song by “Arlo Guthrie” titled “Alice’s Resturant Massacree”, most commonly referred to as “Alice’s Resturant”.  The song is based on a true story and was released in 1967.

For those in my age bracket!, you know it…  “You can get anything you want at Alice’s Resturant…”

Not many people here this morning.  It get’s very busy on the weekends though.

By the time I left, a few bikes and cars were arriving.

It’s a nice restaurant with a lot of memorabilia on the walls.

The Rock Store & Neptunes Net in CA

Posted in Beach, California, Food, Malibu, Motorcycle Parking, Motorcycle Rides, Motorcycles, Restaurant on August 28, 2017 by DRF

Here’s a few photos of a ride I took out to the Rock Store with some friends.  Jay Leno has been known to show up here once and a while to show off his motorcycles and cars.  Unfortunately for us, he did not make an appearance this weekend.  Inside the Rock Store’s gift shop, there are dozens of photos of movie stars and famous people on the wall with their signatures who have been there.  We also rode over to  Neptune’s Net in Malibu, CA.  I grew up near both of these places in High School.  We use to go to Neptune’s Net all the time after going to the beach and “Trying to Surf”!  We never really got the hang of it.  Back then, this place wasn’t so popular.  If you’re in the area, both of these places are worth a visit.  Weekends are the most popular with us motorcyclists.

Laughlin River Run 2016

I didn’t take very many photos this year at the Laughlin River Run.  I’ve been here several times over the years, and for some reason taking photos wasn’t high on my priority list this time.

Anyway, here’s a few I took with my cell phone.

Saguaro Lake – Arizona (w/ a Helicopter Sighting!)

Posted in Arizona, Harley-Davidson, Lakes, Motorcycle, Motorcycle Parking, Motorcycles, Water with tags , , on March 5, 2016 by DRF

Another ride to another lake.  This time to Saguaro Lake, NE of Phoenix, AZ.  While I was there a police helicopter made an approach and departure from the helipad.  I’m guessing he was practicing his approach and departure maneuvers.  He only stayed on the ground for a few seconds.  I didn’t get many photos this trip, but here’s a few.

A Horse, Car & Motorcycle in Arizona

Here in Arizona it’s not unusual to see a Horse, Car and Motorcycle in the same parking lot.

This was the first time I’ve stopped at  The Hitching Post  Pizza Pub in Apache Junction, AZ  (Near the Superstition Mountains).  A nice place with plenty of seating inside and outside on the raised deck patio.   It seemed to be a popular place.  You can’t tell by this photo, but there were more motorcycles in the parking lot than cars on this Saturday afternoon.  I’m sure I’ll be back.

Motorcycle Etiquette

As a longtime motorcycle rider, this makes me Crazy!  Parking your motorcycle in the middle of a automobile parking space!  There’s plenty of room to put 2 motorcycles here!

This is the parking lot where I work,  On more than one occasion, I’ve mentioned to the guy who owns this motorcycle if he would just park on one side or the other, 2 bikes could fit in one space. Parking is at a premium here and if the first rider is fortunate enough to get a spot close the to building, it sure would help out the next rider from having to park so far away.  I call this Motorcycle Etiquette.

Just my opinion of course!
