Bike Night

Last night, Mr. H and I went out to eat with the people he's meeting with up here in Cincinnati. The place was really nice. I couldn't remember the name of the restaurant so I did some research. I remembered the name of a sports gallery, Diamond Green Gallery, a few doors down and looked in the phone book for its address: 9366 Montgomery Road. Then I went to and put in the address and clicked on street view. That was definitely the right location. To the right was the staircase we came up to the street from the underground parking garage. Then I dragged the street view to the left so I could see the name of the restaurant. Wow! I love the internet: Stone Creek Dining is at the corner of Cooper Road and Montgomery Road in Montgomery (Cincinnati area) Ohio.

When we got back to the hotel, we had to pass the place where we ate dinner the first night we were here: Quaker Steak & Lube. It's a sports bar/wings place: lots of televisions, all showing sporting events and has motorcycles & race cars hanging from the ceiling. Every Wednesday night is bike night. I didn't have my camera with me, but I got this picture from their website of a previous Bike Night. There must have been at least 400 bikes at that place last night. (Dr. T, there was a crowd surrounding a red Honda Rebel!) We walked through the crowd and I was again struck by what a friendly bunch of people bikers are. They love to compare trips, bikes, gear, accidents *ouch*: you name it and they'll talk about it. We didn't stay long. Even though the sky wasn't yet dark, it was almost 10 p.m. I guess that's a result of being on a different edge of the time zone and being much farther north than customary. As we went to bed, we could hear each Harley as it left the premises. Those have got to be the loudest bikes on the planet! We joke about Mr. H's Honda ST 1300: it sounds a lot like George Jetson's car!
