Ride to eat-Molly Brown's Victorville
It’s Wednesday morning 8:30 AM and 4 of us meet up on Imperial and the 57 Fwy for a ride to Victorville and Molly Brown's for breakfast. John R., Carolyn, Johney and me. I did not have to twist anyone’s arm to get them to go especially John. If there is breakfast involved he is ready. The ride up is a bit nippy temperature wise but I am totally ready for it. Johney followed in the truck as he had a customer visit scheduled out in the area so it was three motorcycles. Probably the best French toast, egg and bacon breakfast I have had anywhere. Tip Top down in Carlsbad does not come close. Our very friendly server gave us a free breakfast roll covered in frosting big enough to split 4 ways, but naturally I did not take a picture.
On the return trip coming down the Cajon Pass I smelled brakes burning and looked to my right to see if I could spot the truck but did not see anything until a little further and there was a big rig heading for the runaway ramp with it's front tires billowing smoke and also smoke coming from the trailer wheels. Probably a rookie driver.
