Radios and motorcycles are not a match and I have always said radios on bikes should be outlawed.

Oh and I played in the band from the sixth grade through high school. In my junior year I was forced to take chorus even though I had been in a music class for years. The teacher basically gave up on me because I couldn't carry a tune in a bucket. I hated that whole thing. They wanted us to have a rounded education.

Don't get speakers and bikes at all! I was at Preston HD when a glide with short shots was at the lights with a country & western dirge about his wife taking off with his best friend in the 57 Chevy & running the dog over.Did loud pipes in the 70s & 80s. I had a Triumph Bonneville with cocktail shakers much to my Daily Mail reading neighbour's fury.He started it by knocking the 2 downstairs rooms into one when I was on night shift!

Pulled Pork for Breakfast



I have a six quart crock pot and it’s been cooking pork tenderloin in Campbell’s Applewood Bourbon sauce all night. I woke up to the smell and now I want to have a pulled pork sandwich for breakfast.

This pulled pork is not BBQ, but it is pretty tasty. It’s easy to fix; I just cut up the tenderloin into chunks and throw them in the crock pot with a package of sauce and turn the pot on low for 10 or 12 hours or so. I’ve made it many times in the past, and I usually portion it out into plastic freezer containers and have pulled pork sandwiches for dinner once a week for a month or two.

Last year, I fixed a pot of it for a pot luck lunch for a group of 30 or 40 people and it was the only main dish that was completely gone. There were no leftovers. So this year, I figured I’d do it again.

I haven’t made it since the Spring, and I’d forgotten just how good it smelled. It’s funny, but now that I think of it, I haven’t made any crock pot meals all summer long. I guess the cooler weather makes me enjoy meals like Beef Stew or The Italian (sort of) Chicken or this Pulled Pork. Cooler weather is more conducive to cooking, for me. In the summer, I just want to cook quickly. But in the cooler months, I don’t mind fixing some of the more elaborate dishes. Last night, I found a recipe for Pulled Chicken that looks intriguing; I think I’ll try it the next time boneless, skinless chicken boobies go on sale.

I have a recipe for green beans that’ll knock your eyes out. My Mother used to make it. It involves bacon, Italian green beans, crushed tomatoes, garlic and spices. It takes a while to cook and it tastes really good; nothing like you’d imagine. For some silly reason, it took me years to get it right. Every time I tried to make it, something was wrong and it didn’t taste good. However, I think I’ve finally figured it out. The last two times I made it, it tasted right. I got the recipe from Mom and she learned it from Nana who came from the Old Country. I'll never be the cook that either of them was, but I did learn from them.

Wednesday was Pasta night, when I was growing up. We’d have Spaghetti & Meatballs, or Ravioli or some other Pasta dish for dinner. I used to come home from school and either Nana or my mom would be frying meatballs for the sauce. If I waited patiently until they were done with the frying, I would get a meatball for a snack. I used to watch them cook and even though I was a boy, I still learned a few tricks about cooking. Those tricks served me well as I grew older.

Anyhow, to get back to the pulled pork; I just tried to pull it apart, and it’s not quite ready, so I guess I won’t have a pulled pork sandwich for breakfast. I’ll just have to content myself with toaster waffles with real, dark amber Maple Syrup and real, lightly salted butter. Oh, the sacrifices we make!

I guess I can wait until dinner for a very tasty Sandwich with some Ranch Style Beans. That’s the brand name, and they’re pretty good. I think the two items will complement each other.

My mom wasn't a very good but gramma was. They both were fabulous bakers though. I would kill for a blueberry pie like my mom used to make or an anise drop cookie. I think they were made from an old world traditional Austrian recipe. If you are up to it I would like to see that green bean recipe.

B’ham?


I’ve been watching the weather forecasts and it looks like I’m going to have to deal with rain when I head out. Not immediately, but the forecast isn’t looking too dry for my ride up the Parkway. Then, this morning I was reading a thread about someone’s visit to Barber and it included a couple of pictures he took inside the museum. They’ve made some changes inside. They probably have more bikes than ever. The photo that got my attention, though was of a line of EBRs and Buells.

When I was there in ’15, I noticed how the museum gave Erik’s bikes a fair bit of prominence (which I think they deserve). Now, it looks like there are even more on display. The photo showed the back half of an 1190SX with an 1190 RS behind it and a white Blast off to the side. It looks like they have the bikes lined up in chronological order because in the distance, I can see an S2 front fairing. There were other bikes in other photos and the displays were different from when I was there.

Now, when I went to Barber in ’15, it was right after Buelltoberfest, so I started thinking maybe I should head over there instead of riding the Blue Ridge in a cold rain. So I checked the long range forecast for Birmingham, Alabama and they’re supposed to get rain, too. So it looks like I’m going to get wet, no matter which way I go.

That means that I’m being pulled in two different directions. I’d love to ride the Blue Ridge again and I’d also like to go through the museum again. I could plot out a route on backroads from B’ham to home easily enough, and it would be on roads I haven’t ridden on. Or I could stick with my original plan and ride the Blue Ridge. Or, if I don’t keep the Tramp in me on a tight leash, I might wind up in Kansas City, just to get a steak for dinner.

I guess I’ll just have to look at maps and weather forecasts and mull things over a bit. It beats the hell out of playing Solitaire.
