I’ll need to back here on a weekend when there will be more motorcycles and old classic cars on the road.  Not many people here on a Friday afternoon in October. It was still nice to take a ride through here though.

Charity Ride for a Veteran – March 2018

Posted in Arizona, Cave Creek AZ, Charity Ride, Harley-Davidson, Hideaway Grill, Motorcycle, Motorcycle Events, Motorcycle Rides, Motorcycles, Scottsdale AZ on March 13, 2018 by DRF

I participated in a ride to help support a veteran who lost 2 legs and an arm while serving in Afghanistan.  All proceeds were going to the Veteran.  There was a great turnout for this ride.  I didn’t try to make an actual count, buy by my estimates there were over 1,000 motorcycles on the ride.  At $20 per rider and $10 per passenger, I’d say they raised quite a bit of money for him.

Lot’s of bikes showing up for the ride.

More and more bikes showing up!

A good show of support as more and more bikes arrived.

This ride, only about 15-20 miles.  From Scottsdale, AZ to Cave Creek, AZ.  A short ride, but for a worthwhile cause.

Glacier National Park, Montana

Here’s a few photos on our ride through Glacier National Park, Montana.

 

 

This was my first trip here to the park.  It was very impressive.  We didn’t stray off the road much due to time constraints.  If you really want to get the most out of your visit, you’ll need a few days to get off the paved roads and take some hikes up to the glaciers, lakes etc.

San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge

San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge.  It was an adventure riding over it on my motorcycle.  It was so windy I couldn’t hold a straight line.  I must say it was a little nerve racking to say the least!

This was taken on the North side of the bridge on the West side looking down.  By the time I got up here, I was only able to get a glimpse of the bridge for a few seconds due to the clouds/fog.  It was very windy day.

It was a pretty nice day here in San Francisco.  Too bad the bridge got fogged in when I went up the hill to try and get a photo looking down.

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.

DSC02833

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

DSC02832

The food was excellent here!

Of course I has to get a shot with my motorcycle in the frame!

As you can see, by bike is loaded down for this trip.  Next stop San Francisco, CA.

A beautiful day for a ride in Southern California.

The above photos were taken in Morro Bay, CA on my latest ride.  The home of “Morro Rock” located just offshore.   According to Wikipedia, it’s a 581-foot “Volcanic Plug”.  I’m not sure what that means exactly, but it sure is impressive.
