On my way out the door! A little late but still before sunrise…
My starting odometer is 56,272.
A little more packed than I would have liked but I can always mail things I don't need home!
I am heading to Fox's BBQ in Atlanta, Georgia.
I feel good, fresh and ready to ride! I'll write more from the road…
Murphy is my new passenger! LOL I'll explain that later…
I made it to Fox Bros. BBQ after 4 fuel stops (one for me), 5 Smart Water bottles, 2 Red Bull Orange Editions, 2 stops at Harley Davidson Dealers and one almost mishap with a young driver and tractor trailer! No worries mom/dad, my cat like reflexes helped me avoid any damage to myself or the bike!
I have more to tell about Day 1 but first… if my experience at Fox Boris. BBQ is any indication of how the rest of my trip is going to be, I'm in for one hell of a ride!
I back in to a spot far enough away that I didn't feel comfortable leaving it there. As I'm being seated I ask the hostess , if I can park any closer, maybe up front? Without hesitation she says "absolutely! You can park right in front of that tree on the corner…"When I parked there were several of the finest Atlanta Police officers walking out. I asked one of them, J. Fletcher, if he could take a couple pictures of me and my bike showing Fox Bros. In the background. Here is what Officer Fletcher took…I like them! Thanks J.!
I told Amber, my server, about my trip and that I'm writing about it. I gave her and my site address. As I was taking pictures of the outside she asked if I want to see the "smoke house"? Really?! Of Course I do!! Lol. They have smokers inside and one outside! Walking into that back room was like walking into heaven! The smell was just mind blowing!
When I got back to my table no more than 5 minutes later my food was ready! I got the same thing #guyfieri got. The Fox Bros. "Burger" which is a chopped brisket "burger" topped with bacon, tomato, red onion, pickles, melted pimento cheese on a potato roll. And the 1/4 rack Beef Short Ribs which Guy did not get. He got the Chicken Fried Ribs. Amber also brought out s few burnt ends for me to try…!
The ribs were the absolute best I've had… ever! I've had many different style Ribs from many different states and these trump them all! The flavor, the light salt and pepper seasoning and the smoke were done to perfection!!
Thank you #guyfieri!!
I'm heading out to a historic graveyard and a bar called Six Feet Under. Supposedly, (Amber) it's a great way to watch the sunset on the roof top patio overlooking Atlantas oldest Cemetery !
I ended up riding around the outskirts of the city instead of going to Six Feet Under. At a water stop I talked with a couple motor cops and took a couple shots of their bikes.
