Good! I look forward to metting the both of you.
If the damn rain ever stops I'll be able to get the 500 miles on the bike and get
it in for the service check. The new bike just purrs. Damn these are fine
machines. ;-)

NEW BIKE? NEW BIKE? You bought a NEW HARLEY? SCUM SUCKING BIG BLUE
YUPPIE .... whoops. Are you really taking out your glass eye? Settle
down, boy. You wouldn't hit a man with glasses - especially when they
are full of Guinness, now wouldya?

Hey, tell you what. You can redeem yourself. Just ride with
me and Butcher Boy and carry a few tools for me. Eh? It is
only 500 miles? Three stops. I can dig it. Whatdayasay? Want
to break-in that SCUM SUCKING YUPPIE POSEUR (ahem, sorry, bro)
-- I mean that wonderful new American PILE OF SHIT (damn, sorry again!)
that beautiful Harley (FUCKING) Davidson -- I mean, hell,
Me and Butcher are perfect riding company for a guy breaking
in a new bike. I never ride over 100mph. On Butcher Boy.

Where does an unscheduled arrival set his sorry ass at the MITM?

Yea I have to admit that I did indeed buy a new FXDL. See its just that I have
this thing about not liking to ride bikes that are not mine.

Who me? Hell no! first I'd take the Guinness. ;-)

Damn John, you really are cramping my style. If I carry all the tools that you
need how will I be able to get my wine and cheese...you don't expect me to buy it
out of a common store do you? Oh God the thought of it sends chills down my spine.
Oh thats right Davey D is riding down with too. He carrys enough shit in that
bagger for every one. If you look around in the tour pak you might even find an
extra EVO (read real motor) in there for when yours (or is that pooders?) gives
up the ghost.

> It is only 500 miles? Three stops. I can dig it. Whatdayasay?

OH how wounderful! maybe you could show me how to put the gas in it?

SNIP (the complementary stuff about my new ride).

> I never ride over 100mph. On Butcher Boy.

Well how the hell do ya expect to keep up? I know Daveys bagger won't go less
than 90 and he don't like stopping for any whinners foolish enough to ride a hard
tail that far.
Maybe you should consider bring Butcher in the back of someones truck. That way
we will all get a chance to see happens when a drunken fool finds his adjustable
wrench in the dark.

Alright Matt, glad to hear you got the new ride!
Now that you have a new yuppie evo you will have to overcompensate with more
bar fights and cheap tattoos! Hurry up and break that thing in so you can
hot-rod it for purposes of outrunning killer truckers on the Interestate.
See you at MITM.

and post it. Now its 11:30 pm and I just waded through 175 posts and didn't
see it. So here it is (again?). Its an email to me from Jimmy Johnson
(aka Cheezie) re the MITM. FYI, John, looks like its a campout or a local

got a bunk reserved that could go to the highest bidder... :-)

Hey Everyone!!!
Pam and I have finalized most of the details for the MITM...after a grueling
four hour session the other night we came up with some figures and worked out
most of the details...loads of variables to juggle...we made this as fair as
possible for everyone and tried not to step on any toes...I want everyone to
have a GREAT WEEKEND!!!

Most will arrive Friday night and will be greeted by a complimentary
chili/hotdog or Brat dinner complete with either beer or soda and one BIG ASS
BONFIRE. Plenty of snacks and such will also be available. Saturday and
Sunday morning we'll have gallons of coffee and donuts...Saturday lunch and
dinner is up to the individual. There will be an optional pig roast Saturday
evening and cost for this is still unknown...probably around 10.00 bucks or
so for all the beer, music, and pig you can stand.
Included in this price is one "T" shirt, food for Friday night, Coffee/Donut
Breakfast Saturday & Sunday morning and a camp site for the weekend....all
for an advance price of 35.00 a person for the weekend excluding the pig
roast.
For those motelling it (yes, there is a couple) and those late arrivals on
Saturday the cost will be 20.00 a person in advance.
All money will need to be here no later than the 17th of May so we can order
the "T" shirts and get the food. No advance money then no "T" shirts...extra
"T"'s will not be available at the event.
Extra "T" shirts over and above the base price of 35.00 is 8.00 dollars each.
For those that don't reserve a space and send money ahead it will be 30.00
dollars at the gate for each person and no "T" shirt...but you are still
welcome!

My mailing address is:
Jimmy Johnson
c/o Watson's Wheels of Madness
2900 East Broadway
Alton, IL. 62002

Phone for the shop is 618.463.1483

BTW, the cabins are full.

I still need quantity and sizes of "T" shirts from:

Ed Eckert

Yea, Davey will probably punish you by taking route 90, but hang
in there, the washboard part of the road isn't very long. After
that, you can laugh at him. Butcher Boy is a fine, fine ride.
Ah, are you going to use the mouse-padded seat or run with the

OK fellas, here's the first post again. I'll post the latest update next:

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

It's getting close to that time of year again...MITM 1995 June 2-4th!!!

It'll be at the same place as last year in Staunton, Illinois at the Forest
Lakes Campground. Location is Exits 41 and 44 off of I-55 and the road runs
parallel to and west of I-55.
Phone number is 618.635.2644...call for a brochure cause it has directions.

I've already reserved the same section we had last year. It has three cabins
with possibly a fourth before the MITM.
The large cabin is 52 dollars a night for four but will sleep six at an
additional 2 dollars a person.
The two smaller cabins are 26 dollars a night for two but will sleep four at
an additional 2 dollars a person.
More than enough space for tents around the cabins.

A good faith deposit of 20.00 will be required which will be used for
t-shirts and for the space if ya don't show...e-mail me privately for a
confirmation, t-shirt sizes and quantitys, ques and an address.

Be there or be square.

Happy Motoring from che...@aol.com

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Last year a few of us from the Harley Digest got together at the first
ever MITM (Meet In The Middle). It was not organized beyond determining
where we would meet and the dates. No games, runs, or special events...
just an eyeball to put some faces to people who had been contributing to
the DIGEST, around a bonfire with a few cold ones. This is a burgers
over the grill kinda thing with optional runs to a nearby eatin places.

The meeting place is a rather large KOA-type place in a rural setting
with RVs on one end and primitive campsites (with a cluster of cabins)
on the other end, separated by a couple of small fishing lakes. The
cabins are few (in fact they may be all reserved by now) but the campsites
are many. I'm sure other suitable accommodations could be found...as
I said its just outside St. Louis.

Those attending last year came from Alabama, Ohio, Indiana, Chicago,
St. Louis, and Kansas City. I'm not sure who else will be there this
year but I can almost guarantee a 100% recidivism rate (look it up)
plus I can think of at least five more that I know about, two from
Texas.

The organizer of this event, Mr. Jimmy Johnson, aka Cheezie,
a certified know-it-all HD mechanic, author of tech articles to various
moto-mags, helluva nice guy and ASSHOLE wannabe, has graciously permitted
me to extend this invitation to my fellow barflies at the RMH VB&G.
I think you would enjoy this get-together...its a sleeper. Hell it may
even be the next Sturgis. E-mail Cheezie today.

Bar-B-Q ain't about sauce. Bar-b-Q is a combo of the way it's
cooked and the sauce. But all things being equal. I think it is
impossible to eat anything hot without breaking a sweat. If I
don't sweat when I eat it then it ain't hot.

Well I have been ranked by the best in all catagorys. Tonal quality,
duration, and cling factor. I don't think you know who you are
dealing with here. I was raised on Mexican food, cut my teeth
on Asian food, and can put away 8 doz of NY's finest hot wings
in one sitting. I was thrown out of the Lostsa Hotsa store at the
Mall of America last year because I embarassed them at there
free sample counter. I have yet to find any hot food in the upper
midwest. The hottest food I ever had was a doz nuclear wings
at a place called the Blue Moon in Vestal NY. Took me a good
20 mins to eat them.

If you get the sauce to Pooder's I'll make sure it gets to the MITM.
And DesMoines is out of the way. The closest we'll get to DesMoines
is the Quad cities.

So? Despite being a confirmed gringo and incapable of withstanding
popcorn with *salt* on it, I know the best BBQ in the world is served
in Des Moines, Ia. I also know, for a fact, that it's the hottest stuff
available anywhere. Thus, I issue a challenge:

I'll bring 8oz of sauce to the MITM. The challenge is this:


Eat your food with this sauce on it in a quantity *I* can see without
my glasses at a distance of 1 foot and, if you can eat it without
breaking a sweat I'll spend at least one hour polishing your sled.
Break a sweat and I get to sleep somewhere near your humble abode
where the rain isn't falling.

It's a great deal -- either I don't get rained on during the


Meet or you get a free polish job. How can you lose?

Well, there is the rather unsavory effects to be noticed by
people down-wind the next day, but hell they're probably driving
Volvo's anyway. Taken as a whole, it's a great deal, and as a
special bonus a good bock or amber ale will eliminate tailgaters
for at least four hours depending upon the wind.

Use only as directed.

Dave? Should we stop in Des Moines for lunch or do I have
to pack a gallon or two of sauce up to Stafford's for quality testing?
Oh, and there *are* milder sauces available for the weak at heart or
stomach like me.

Hey ya'll

I will be leaving Friday (time is pretty open) from Milwaukee for the
gathering. I plan to take 43 from Milw. to Rockford, then 55 down, but this
is open, too. Anybody on this general route, or a path through Chicago, email
for company on the ride.
Sunday I will be heading toward Salina, KA. Due to time factors, I
will need to take 70 all the way across. Same deal.
Looking forward to seeing everybody.

[stuff about routes to the MITM snipped]

heard recently on the news that parts of Illinois and Missouri are
flooded - anyone know how things are up the Staunton area and south of there?
Any roads flooded out? Hopefully things will dry out by the first week of June.

12 more days before we get on the road!

Matthew Trost fired up his '74 FLH after months of painstaking work, and
she sounds great! Looks great too. He still needs to finish a few things
before taking her on the road - that's cutting it close after a total
rebuild!

Nope, I did issue a challenge and it still stands. Do you
think I'm going to miss out on a dry bed just because you don't
think hot Bar-B-Q exists in the Midwest?

Quite true. All proper BBQ is to be made over a proper
grill heated with wood coals and none of that mesquite yuppie bullshit
Reddy-Lite charcoal abomination. Then again, a good sauce can overcome
bad meat or improper cooking, so either way I get a decent meal. There
is no cure for bad sauce.

Sssshhhhh! Pipe down, boy! You want *everybody* to hear
you? Shit, you and your big mouth -- I had a sure thing going and
you go and ruin it for me. Just for that I'm drinking Sierra Nevada
Pale and making you ride behind me on the way down.

I've made Mr. Alt.Tasteless (for two years running) gag with
only a mild beer-fart and I puke blood as a hobby. Trust me, even
the damn *cats* leave the room when I'm in form. The best way to
ride with me is to have me in your mirrors. Trust me on this. I
can't stand my *own* farts, and as we all know your own farts are
supposed to smell OK.

Personally, I blame Stafford since he isn't here to defend
himself at the moment. No doubt he'll yank that cushy seat from BB
and stuff it in some concealed alcove in retaliation.

Quad cities? That's somewhere in Iowa, isn't it? I hear they
have a football factory over there, but this could only be a rumor.
In any event, Des Moines is on the way for me and I'll bring sauce.
I figure 1 gallon of the regular and 8oz of the nuclear ought to
get us by the pork roast on Saturday.

Met Bill Burton, Tom DeBoni and Srgn (? - no vowels) Friday
evening at Buffalo Bill's in Hayward, Ca. Even though the
directions I gave were wrong, everybody made it there with no
problem. Didn't have any problem recognizing each other - we were
the only folks carrying around our helmets. It also helped that Tom
has his picture on the Winona server. The very nice waitress even
took a couple of pics of us so we could send them in the John.
Tom brought his HD Bible for consultation on Bill's dyno-ing
his Dyna. We also sang some Mantras to the kind HD Gods, for our
continued good luck in riding, while tipping a few.
Great company. The food and beer were excellent. BB's Bitter
Brew is not bitter and has a very nice fruity/woody flavor. 2
glasses up from me. I also tried their American Wheat beer - was
rather disappointed after tasting the Bitter Brew.
Everyone got to show off their bikes, even attracting the
attention of a pedestrian who came over to talk about his LowRider.
We are tentatively planning another MITM in Dublin in a few
weeks. There is a place there called Sunol Alice's (is that right
Tom?) that has 30 brewtaps. And if it qualifies as a restaurant,
maybe I will bring my kids for Tom to play with. ;->
I hope all of these fine folks will again consider my
invitation to a MC campout next weekend. Any other takers???

You dudes might want to steer clear of the Quad Cities. There are two
Nuke plants owned and operated by the outfit I work for, Commical
Edison, located there. It has been said, (and I can't confirm this),
if you spend over an hour within a two mile radius of either facility,
your thingies will glow in the dark for ever more, sauce or no sauce.

Ride safe...

I didn't say bullshit to the challenge, just to the statement that the best

I've been keeping tuned to conditions for I-70, my route to MITM. In '93 it
was closed down at one point. I think the MO River is supposed to crest
mid-week in that area, but more rain is forecasted for this week...hope there's
no more next week. Cheezies' SO is part Indian tho, and I've requested her to
do a "no rain" dance so we should be ok.

Don't forget that not too far east of here I-70 has a new dead-end
where the road collapsed (old mines under the roadway...) so you can
only get as far as I-77 (the road collapsed just past there so that
is where it is shut down from.)

There is some fun to be had here anyway, though.

Believe it or not I have never had the opportunity to eat at the KC Masterpiece.
May top 3 favorites are:
1. Zarda's
2. Wyandotte
3. Rosedale.

Rosedale was the first rib joint in KC and the one by which all others are
measured. They have the some of the best sauce. Wyandotte was started
by a former employee of Rosedale back in the late 50's early 60's. The reason
I rank Rosedale last is because if they are having a special($8/slab) they are not
the best choice of ribs. Zarda's is a new upstart(by KC rib business standards).
And quite good. But there rib joints are almost to upscale. Very good food but
they give you real plates. Wyandotte you used to just get the tray or newspaper.
Now you get paper or styrafoam(sp) plates. Wyandotte and Zarda's run neck-n-neck
in the rib catagory. Wyandotte sauce is a little bit more spicy than Zarda's.
Wyandotte originated in Wyandotte couty(poor). Zarda's originated in Johnson county
(rich). But they both have rib joints in both counties. Don't get me wrong, you can
get good ribs at just about any bar in any one horse town with in 50 miles of KC.
There is one place out by Louisburg Ks, don't remember the town. But the place
used to be a bank that is now a rib joint.

Speaking of Texas style bar-b-q. My favorite is County Line Bar-B-Q. There is one
just outside of Austin and another in Houston. They serve it country style all you can
eat. Outstanding bar-b-q.

They are routing traffic up & over to route 40 (National rd.) it's only
a 10 mile detour at worst ( I was just on it 2 weeks ago) - it should
have no bearing whatsoever on those of you from MITM going up to see
Eddie - unless you're really fucking lost - you take I-70 to Columbus
where you then get on I-77 North to Cleveland. Hope this helps.

WhackO to my history lesson on KC rib joints.

The only KC Masterpiece place I ever saw was down on the
Coutry Club Plaza. This area is VERY upscale and VERY
motorcycle unfriendly. Especially since they got all the handsome
cabs down there.

"Here" is right East of Cambridge, OH. A section of I-70 caved in and there
is a rather convoluted detour up-and-back on I-77 to get around it. Count on
15-30 minute delay depending on traffic. I've been getting around it by
taking Rt. 22 from Pittsburgh to Cambridge. Then you can hit 40 or 50 or get
on 70 (you are now West of the problem). That's a much prettier drive than
taking the Interstate anyway. However, based on the info. provided by Ivan
and Cheezie I believe myself to be the most Easternly MITM attendee and the
only one that will have to deal with this shit on the way there.

No, I think you're getting several places mixed up. The place in
Dublin is called Judy's Lyons' Brewery Tavern, AKA Judy's, AKA
Lynons'. Judy used to run the tavern in Sunol right next door to
Lyons' Brewery. WHen Sunon burnt down, the brewery wasn't
rebuilt, but Judy rebuilt her tavern in Dublin, and renamed it
in honor of the Brewery. It's a very convivial place, excep
tthat they don't allow smoking in the bar. They have food, and
usually live music. I don't know about children, although I
remember having seen crawler's there in the past. Best to check
beforehand.

You don't have to detour to Rock Island. Jim had a place in Cedar
Rapids, run by a relative. Now the relative owns it. It's called Al &
Irene's and is just off I380. If you're interested in exact details as
to how to find it we can take this private.

Davey D, you sure do know a lot 'bout Texas. I've managed to keep my mouth
shut during the *best bbq ribs* thread. Mostly cause I've tasted KC ribs &
know they're good. Glad to see ya recognize a Texas establishment for their
bbq. Believe it or not, we *do* have a couple decent bbq places in Texas ;-)

I wonder if that incredible BBQ place in downtown (;-)) Grapevine, Texas is still there?
Any Dallas riders know about it? BTW, I'm returning to Big D in August (yeah, I know it's
*hot* then), after 16 years away, and I want to find out what is *the* Tex-Mex restaurant
to visit in the metro area. Any suggestions appreciated.

Next time yer in KC try Arthur Bryant's BBQ, 17th & Brooklyn. Then you can
tell me how good it was...Its been the most talked about BBQ place in KC
since I been here (30 years)....and I ain't been there yet.

Lot'so Bee-Bee-Q stuff deleted........

County Line is ok, Otto's (Ex-NRA member George Bush's hangout)
and the Brisket House are probably the best in Houston, but
Mr. Erlies on Lake Conroe (in BFE) is the best around, if you
can stand eating outdoors with the chickens, cats and dogs...=:-)

I been there, done that. I went to Bryant's when a white boy wasn't supposed
to be in that part of town at night. Most excellant place. They are known more
for their BBQ meats and chicken than for the ribs. A definate must for the BBQ
coniseur.

I finally got around to checking the route on the map. I don't remember
all of the roads. I'll send it to you tomorrow. All I know for sure is ribs
in Rock Island fpr lunch and brats in Stauton for dinner.

My normal mode of travel before I got married was to head in the general
direction I was headed.

I said 14 pounds I stick to it I should have said cold torque plus a quarter turn.
More than this an the bolts bust when the evo heats up and expands to the right
tension. The helmut strap is the same as my belt drive 1/2 an inch slack in case my
head swells.
