Good Eats in San Pedro

Are you hungry?  If so, you owe it to yourself to check out “The Gaffey Street Diner” in downtown San Pedro…the Diner is easy to find.  Just take the San Pedro fwy from downtown LA to it’s end at Gaffey Street.  Turn left onto Gaffey, go about two hundred yards, and the diner is on the right side of the street.  A couple of caveats…parking can be a bit problematic, especially on weekend mornings, when it seems that everyone is San Pedro is having breakfast here!  My advice is to ride your motorcyle for hassle-free parking.

 Gaffey Street Diner has a full assortment of the usual breakfast fare as well as specials you might not see at the typical diner.  Whatever you order, the portions are huge, the service is friendly, and the food is delicious!  ‘And, if you are not in the mood for breakfast, or one of their killer sandwiches, Gaffey Street is now serving dinner.  J and I are going to have to come  back after five in the evening, and give them a try-if dinner is as scrumptious as breakfast and lunch we can’t lose!

Today, J and I decided on lunch.  She ordered a veggie burger, which was a boca burger garnished with all the fresh trimmings, plus a large portion of Gaffey Street’s seasoned fries.  For me, it was a bbq ham sandwich…

Gaffey Street Diner is not the cheapest breakfast eatery around, but I think you will be satisfied with your dining experience here! 

See you on the road, and ride safely!

Woo hoo! A New Motorcycle!

Well, new to us, at least!  Jennifer and I bought a 2002 R1150 GSA from a very good friend a couple of months ago and we are really enjoying it!  I don’t normally name my motorcycles, but if I did, “Bikeopotamus” would be it!  The big black GSA is a tall, heavy motorcycle that can take us pretty much anywhere we want to go!

We’ve done a few modifications to make Bikeopotamus a more comfortable sport touring machine…We recently rode to Ojai and had Bill Mayer Saddles make us a new seat.  We’ll post some pix soon!  We also slipped on some Shinko dual sport tires.  So far they are great on the upaved   Southern California roads we have around here, and they seem pretty durable as well.  We’ve ridden the bike about 6,000 miles since we purchased the first week of April, and so far the tires are doing great!  A Cee Bailey’s windscreen rounds out the comfort accessories…at speed, the CB wraps the wind around my head rather than buffeting it all around.   Thanks, Steve Clavin of Cee Bailey’s.  You rock!  Finally a “Versa” LED brake light modification  from will hopefully keep some driver from riding over the top of us from behind.  Those eight LED lights are really bright!

Here is a pic, taken up in the local San Gabriel mountains…
