Question Great places for a break

When you are out on your trusty steed, there comes a point where you want to stop. May be a comfort break, perhaps also for a coffee or beer and a sandwich or larger meal to recharge your own batteries as much as giving the bike a breather before you continue on your way. In most countries there are well known biker meeting spots, where owners and enthusiasts gather to have a drink, discuss and compare notes. Have you got a favourite place where you tend to end up at when out for a ride? What's so good about it? Is the food great? has the girl behind the counter got a welcoming smile?? Tell us all about where your favourite stop off place is and why it's so good then may be the rest of us can try it out one day too.

Since moving to the vast "Inland Empire" area of Los Angleles, my stops are typically the Cliff House on the Ortega Highway, and Tom's Farms in South Corona.

The Cliff House typically parks some of the most eye appealing canyon hardware I have seen, has a wonderful view off the cliff down to Lake Elsinore below, and tops that off with relatively lame food that is at least overpriced.

Tom's Farms usually finds the Harley guys drinking cold ones to a live band on the edge of their duck pond. The food is fantastic, and the crafts fair, antique store, carnival rides, train, produce stand, cheese & wine store, candy store, petting zoo, and the two restaurants add to the "County Fair" ambiance.

By far my favorite is the world famous Rock Store, nestled in the Santa Monica mountains along Mulhullond highway. This mountainous area is a sportbikers haven, and Ed & Vern's Rock Store is THE place to park. It is easy to find a hundred or more bikes parked there on a warm day, and there is always a chance for a celebrity sighting. In my earlier days when I lived out that way, I rode there almost every weekend. I have met Jay Leno there, Chuck Graves, Tom Arnold, Maria Shriver, and on several occasions, Arnold Schwarzenegger. I also saw there once, but didn't talk to, David Letterman in one of his vintage Porsches. Quite a place.

WHen I still had my harley I would stop at all sorts of interesting places....I hate to say it but most of my stopping on the Brutale is at GAS STATIONS!


There are all sorts of cool hang outs on long island, the 7-11 on deer park ave is great to meet up with other guys to go riding, the ferry at Port Jeff, Orient Point, Captree, The oak beach in, the "shack", fort solonga inn, the gas station by the roundabout up at bear mountian.....never mind the spots downtown in manhattan.....lots of bikes here.
