Yeah, I'm back on an 1800. Pop Chance and I rode some great N.C. roads recently and were reminiscing where we first met, Benton Lees Steakhouse in Uvalda, Ga. It sits all by itself right on a river. Since it's South Ga, probably should wait till cooler temps. Huge steak, frog legs, catfish et cetera. They have a website.

Anyway, we were thinking of having another Ride to Eat there this Fall. Is there any interest?

I think we had about 20-25 the last time I was there.

Last time we had Ga, Fl, Sc, and Tn riders to join us. It's all about fellowship and making new friends. Plus, the food ain't bad either.

Ok, after riding my new to me trike for a couple of weeks now, I find the seat too hard. Even riding with an air cushion or sheep skin cover did not make it any better then being able to ride 1 hour before I was dancing around in my seat to find comfort.

If I can't find the right mix, this 5 hour ride for lunch will be history for moi.

Tommy, I will keep you posted.

Mike, I am thinking that you just need to tough it out and get use to the seat. That's what I did when I rode 9500 miles in 21 days. Other options are custom seats but there are no guarantees that you can do long rides on those either.

On another note, Hey Trialsman, what say we plan on the Sunday the 25th? If we wait too much longer the weather could be a factor.

I hear you about toughing it out. The bike came with a Mustang Seat. If I remember right, on my old V-Star, it came with a Mustang seat and was hard too.
I just remembered that the original owner has the OEM seat waiting for me to pick up. Time to make a trip there in car I think and switch it out. I did not mind my last OEM seat.

Also, according the the restaurant web site, the place is closed on Sundays, Mondays, and Tuesday. Will open for private parties of 50 or more though....

Maybe the 24th?

I'll wait for Paul to chime in since this was his idea but I am cool with the 24th
