So we took the long route to find a place to have Mother's day brunch. We decided that upscale places would be lined out the door so we ambled our way to a familiar haunt. On the way we saw
this interesting hack. It was a Honda CBR125rr with a Cosy Sidecar. I had to stop and take a closer look
I've been past this rig a few times but it was always under a bike cover so I had no idea what was beneath, until today. Soon enough we arrive at our usual place by the water and had the place nearly to ourselves.
As you noticed we parked behind the '58 Ford Thunderbird 2 DR HT. I like to look at old cars and here is a shot of the interior
Our waitress came over with the menus
and said: "Weren't you just here last week ?"
Me: "I think we were, we like it here"
I'm not sure it is a good thing to be recognized and to order the same old thing every week. I had my usual, Eggs Benedicts and Mrs Skoot had this
Two eggs, hash browns, 2 sausages and choice of toast . . . not bad for $4.95, coffee extra. The eggs benedicts were $7.95 . We can't even dine at the Golden Arches for this amount and we get served, there is no lineup and parking is plentiful and right outside.
After a leisurely brunch, we went for a leisurely topless ride through the Country and finally it was time to return home and top up the fuel. I had just under half a tank and it cost me just over $76.00 . Luckily I ride my bike most of the time as it is costly to keep feeding my V8 engine
I am supposed to feed my engine 94 octane, premium fuel but I can cheat a little and use 92 to save a few bucks. Today I decided to use the top grade as half my tank still has gas and fuel stabilizer from last year. My 'Vette chokes on anything less

A few days ago I mentioned that I had purchased another addition to a pile of new stuff which may never be used.
It is inside its own pouch and is very compact
Here I am sliding it out.
It is a new generation of MicroLite sleeping bags. It is filled with a very efficient synthetic filling which holds in your body heat. As I am not a camper I thought that a sleeping bag rated to 45°F would be satisfactory for me as I would only use it during the heat of summer. Plus I have the option of wearing clothes if it got any colder.
I am still not convinced that I am a Camper but I plan to pack it on my bike, just in case of emergencies. I just have to figure out the stove & food options. Just for fun I decided to see if my tent and sleeping bag would fit inside my sidecase,
and they do with room to spare. Notice that the compressed sleeping bag is only half the size of the tent
