Freeze Your Butt Off

November 26, 2016

Bill Potter again hosted the Highlands FYBO Ride at his Hot Rod Factory and Motorcycle Mausoleum across the river in Yankee country (Maryland). We toured the Museum, and found a number of new and interesting “exhibits”. Bill seems never to stop adding to his collection. After the tour, we headed out on the FYBO Ride. The weather was nice, and no freezing occurred this year.

The intrepid FYBO Riders included Steve Geissler, Tony Greenfield, Bob Nicholas, Tom Hardy, Mike Mueller, Matt Pauly, Juan Sakata, Craig Williams, Mike Mueller, Tim O'Hara, Brother O'Hara, Joe Earman, and Don Hollis and Sue, and Dave Hennessey.

Guests Tom Arthur, and a number of friends of friends, whose names we will try to add, also rode with us.

Swain's Lock

The ride plan took us up the twisty-turny MacArthur Boulevard to the entrance of the Great Falls Tavern at the Great Falls of The Potomac River. But the “Tavern” serves neither food nor drink, so we headed up Falls Road to the village of Potomac, Maryland. We then followed River Road north, and turned down a narrow one-lane road, leading us to Swain's Lock, one of the many locks on the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal. The weather was unusually warm, and we could have chosen a much farther destination. After a brief visit to the lock, we headed back for food and drink.

The Hunter's Inn

We then proceeded down River Road to enjoy Hot Food and Cold Beer at the Hunter's Inn, in Potomac, Maryland. This retaurant moved from up the street to its present location 22 years ago. Longtime Potomac residents will remember when it was just north of The Happy Pickle.
