Golden Eagle Review:

Debbie and I went out to the Golden Eagle today to scope out our lunch stop for the RIMBY. My burger was great! One of the better ones that I have had. You could tell that it was fresh beef and that it was cooked on a good grill. It had great charring, yet was juicy. The sandwiches looked good. Debbie was not a fan of the French Onion soup - too salty.

 

 

 

Here are a few pics of the view from our table. It would have made it worth it even if the food was so-so.

 

 

 

 

 

Even if the regular parking spaces are tight, the owner said that we can park bikes along the guardrail. Some of the pavement is new so bring a kickstand plate.

 

 

There are also 3 parking areas at the hairpin. The traditional parking 1 is OK because the white fog line is actually about 8 feet from the curb. Lots 2 and 3 provide parking for plenty more bikes.

 

This will be a great lunch stop and they are looking forward to seeing us.

Cool. Are you very comfortable with it's handling and all? They are magnificent machines!

only thing that really bothers me so far is riding in gravel. I've made 180 degree turns with Sandi on the back. I'm getting to learn about the internals, too, since I've put on a bunch of bling as well as doing my first oil change this week, as well as figuring out why a speaker wasn't working. the service manual is a whopping 700 pages plus, so there is a lot inside that bike.

but we are loving it. and everyone who sees it is impressed with the looks.

not really, but I never paid attention before. I know the people who have em, love em. since I"ve only had mine about 6 weeks, the people you need to ask are those who've had em a while, like goldwing bob, pablo750 and gener, to name a few

Less than 2 weeks to go. I'm going to start putting together some tentative ride groups. Please tell me what paces you are most comfortable with:

Flower sniffing - speed limit to 5 above
Power sniffing - 5 above to 10 above
Quick - 10 to 15 above
Fast - 15 above +

Ed,

I have recently been told I will have a medical procedure (supposedly "routine") on the 24th. I have to change my status to tentative. If at all possible I will be there.
