To Route 66 For Some Great BBQ

Rode out to Route 66 to get some Great BBQ. Yes i found some Great BBQ in California didn't think it was possible but it was. I was raised in Texas & South Carolina. So i know what good bbq,potato salad,collard greens and mac-n-cheese is suppose to taste like well today i found the joint to go to. Best collards,mac-n-cheese & potato salad since i left SC in the mid-90's The BBQ the best i've had out here and better than most i had in Texas. Its take out only so we ate at a park a few blocks away.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Bke...SSyPVjUdRIRZdQ

Think I'll ride to the San Tan Flat Steakhouse for lunch, and have a "DUKE" - it's a half-pound burger w/ swiss AND cheddar, bacon and mushrooms, and a LOAD of fries.... Named for a certain gentleman who used to live in this area, and acted in LOTS of western movies...!

Did you happen to purchase the model with the back rest? You did some serious riding. Why'd you swap that seat out for something else? I like that idea of it though I'd probably only use it for longer trips (200+ mile days). I imagine I'd leave it off most of the time. The other part of me says, a back rest on a Sport Touring bike...c'mon.

P.S. Sorry to see you sold your V. I'll fly my flag at half mast today.

I went through 7 seats on the Versys never got one with a backrest. For longer trips i use a KoolBak Belt http://www.koolbak.com/MotorcycleBelt/Kidney_Belt.html or put a duffle bag on the passenger section and use it to rest my back on long rides

I'm "with" Joe on using a kidney belt (OLD name) to support your lower back. I have a BAD back, but regularly ride 12 hour days, thanks to my 'belt'.

I'll admit that I did a fast forward in the video so I know I missed part of it. I saw some road signs early on to see where you were, and then skipped over to being there. Is there a location in there somewhere?

I will be in So Cal in a couple weeks and may be able to give it try.

Thanks,
Richard

Thanks for that. My first stop will be Riverside, so that is easily doable.

Best BBQ in the world, Franklin BBQ, Austin, TX. Open 11 - 2. Just got back from first long trip on the Versys, 1,300 miles in three days, from home to Carlsbad, NM. Spent the night on Guadalupe Peak, highest point in Texas, then home. Versys performed flawlessly, not a drop of oil used.
