    Best Chicken Sandwich?

    I don't know if you Southron folk have Mary Brown's Chicken, but it's decent. Just a big fried chicken breast, just crunchy enough, little bit of lettuce, mayo, and pickles. The bun could use improvement. Oh yeah, you can have it spicy or with Buffalo sauce if you like. Rather than fries, they...

    Getaway in Stockholm

    Hej people.

    Getaway in Stockholm

    The Vasa Museet is neat. I liked the Swedish Museum of Natural History too, lots of Viking stuff there. Check out the Nobel Prize museum too if you can. When I visited there was a Museum of Modern Photography between the harbour and the train tracks; it was... interesting, if slightly like being...

    Getaway in Stockholm

    Berlin for sure. There's so much history there, and I have a couple of personal connections to the city. It's also WAY cheaper than Stockholm, or anywhere in Scandinavia.

    Getaway in Stockholm

    Stockholm is my second favourite of the cities I've visited. I have pics of that same square in Gamla stan and I took a few good shots on that bridge too. LOL... I also bought a battery for my camera in that camera shop.

    If you were buying again DSG or MT

    100% DSG. The economy of motion flicking through the gears is analogous to riding a motorcycle with a quick-shifter, or even just a very good clutch/gearbox. As a car, it shifts better than I do on my best day. If the VW manual was a VERY good transmission, it would be a tougher choice, but it...

    Where is this paradise?

    Love the different takes so far, thanks. Nobody here representing the Gulf Coast? TX, LA, AL, MS? I had meant to tour around the Southern states in late '19 on my bike before heading down to Baja, but I couldn't get out of Canada before the snow was on the ground (project ran long), and then...

    Where is this paradise?

    How's the winter in that part of the US? I don't mind rain, but I'm absolutely sick and tired of freezing in the dark, chiselling ice off my car, etc. I want to ride motorcycles year 'round, but I'd settle for 10 months, if I spent 1 of those 2 off months someplace warmer LOL. I'm generally...

    Where is this paradise?

    Amsterdam is one of the cities I've visited, and I liked it a lot. I've never been to Spain, but my friends in Europe will fly there for a weekend golf trip, because it's that much cheaper than Sweden, France and the UK (where they live). Real estate pricing is only a tertiary issue, living on...

    Where is this paradise?

    LOL! The crews at a yard full of commercial fishing boats and tugs probably aren't the ones to step and rig a mast on a sailboat, if you had a choice. I gather that having riggers and other specialists travel gets expensive...

    Where is this paradise?

    I intend to live on the boat (live-aboard moorage), parking spot at the marina or nearby, and a garage or storage unit rented for the bikes. As for affordability, I'm thinking of any place which is not a resort town; there are probably still more locals in this magical place than part-timers or...

    Where is this paradise?

    Where in the world is a coastal town/city, relatively affordable, with good sailing and an active sailing community, or at least yachty boatyards, and excellent roads nearby for motorcycling and general vehicular fun time? Since I'm in Canada, let's say somewhere other than Canada. Basically...

    Cars with ridiculous wings.

    Probably best to tether them to that shopping cart handle with some All-Round or something.
