2-21-2018 LRW Muggs-N-Manor-Addison

2-21-2018 LRW , Winter Version

Five intrepid individuals braved the bitter cold, howling winds and driving rain to head to the far reaches of the Western Suburbs (Addison?) to indulge in a delicious luncheon meal at Muggs-N-Manor Bar & Grill.

Hugh Brandt, George Gauss, Bob Graeff, Bill Homick and I enjoyed a delicious banquet of broasted chicken dinners and perfectly prepared grilled, ground beast sandwiches served with various sides. These delicacies, as well as brewed concoctions hereafter referred to as ‘beer or ale’ were expertly presented to us by Jodi, a very dedicated “Serving Wench” whose enthusiastic  devotion made sure our needs for condiments did not go unfulfilled and that our goblets did not fall empty.

As always, good food, good friends and good conversation made for a “GREAT TIME.”

2018 Honda Gold Wing

Saturday, February 3, 2018.
Just returned from Des Plaines Honda where I got to sit on the new Wing. As an observation seat-height feels like it is about 1″ taller than my 2013 and just by sitting on it I can’t tell if it is any lighter than mine. I opened the side cases and they are even smaller than they look from the outside. Dash layout is a lot cleaner looking than mine because there are a lot fewer buttons. GPS screen looked nice and bright and better placed than mine. Also I found the crash-bars. They are under black plastic covers and would only need replacing (the covers, not the bars) if you are rolling when you drop it and scratch them. When questioned they (DPH) told me that they laid it down and just like the previous models no plastic touches and is damaged. Got to hear one run outside and it sounds about the same as mine.
