Much Watch on TV Tonight for those who "Ride to Eat"

Not sure if any of you have been watching a series called Feasting on Asfault but it is a 4 part series on the Food Channel hosted by Alton Brown where he starts in South Carolina and rides his BMW (with about 4 other support bikes) across the USA stopping at neat Road Food dining spots.

Tonight they are showing all 4 hours back to back beginning at 6:00 pm (ET) If you have not seen it, it's certainly worth the watch as they make some GREAT local stops along the way crossing the USA. Just thought I would pass this along for your viewing pleasure.

When i saw them take off down that dirt road they on their GS's and him on his RT I knew this was going to end bad! Great show though. Some of the eating places are only a couple of miles away from me and the place where the Beach Boys hung out on Hawthorne Blvd was one of my haunts also, lots of fun back then.

Alton's a BIG POSER!!!

(I'm just hoping he hears about messenger13 calling him names and he PMs me. Then I can invite him over and cook him a meal. It'll suck, so then he'll grab the bull by the horns and cook for me and the Mrs.!)
