McDonald's coffee is like Coors light. Not worth the water it took to make it nor worth my time to drink it. Hard to bead a good pot of home perc 'ed coffee. Electric percolator is faster and easier than stove top percolators. YMMV.
Nailed it right there! Their crap tastes like water compared to the good dark roasts I make at home!
So how do youse guys brew that on the road? .
My most memorable cup of coffee was a cup of instant in a paper cup. Let me explain. It was when the Guzzi National was had at Money Creek Campground in MN during the 100 year flood. Sunday morning is a disaster zone with tents torn down, mud every where and no electricity. I'm walking around looking at the mess when I happened by some folks in a travel trailer that had made coffee on the gas grill. At 8 AM I'm done with a pot of coffee so now you know why this cup tasted so good.Another memorable cup was at the national in John Day, OR. An outsider came in and set up one of these fancy coffee bars. I'm a turnip farmer so it is either plain or black. Frappe, double mocha blah, blah is all foreign to me. When it is my turn to order I said I want a plain cup of black coffee, no weird colored swizzle stick. Nothing but plain black. I can't remember the mans name but he was from Michigan and he said to the barrista that he wanted one just like Tex ordered.In a previous post I wrote about my one time experience at StarBucks.Tex
But itís never been about the coffee...
I haven't spent much time on this board lately. With discussions like this I remember why.
I put this thread up with the intention of being "tongue in cheek". I hoped to stir things up a bit by using the exact format for the subject as another thread that dealt with, which is better or old riders, low or lite? I was trolling, but I certainly didn't get the reaction I expected.Amazingly, most just seemed to roll right along, treating it as a perfectly normal subject for discussion.
I was wondering who is lonelier; the old guys that go to McDonald's for coffee to kabitz about things, or someone that posts to a Guzzi board to spark up a conversation about old guys that go McDonald's for coffee to kabitz about things. And yet, here I am!
I'm a spring chicken compaired to most of you old coots... I prefer a nice solitary scenic overlook with a water bottle and an apple from my tail bag
Well I reckon topics like this occupy a good space in our psyche.We ride these bikes as much as a vehicle to conjure up new and foster existing relationships, not as a cheap mode of transport. We consciously or otherwise, converse with like minded individuals to reinforce our own relevance to ourselves and others. If that means expressing our own thoughts, or enquiring as to those of our cohorts of choice, then it cannot be a bad thing, regardless of the subject matter.It also gives us licence to reminisce and when more of your life is behind you than in front, itís a precious form of enjoyment thatís still available to us.Seems you do your best work when youíre trying the least Chad....
Whenever I feel the need to get back to my "cultural" roots all I hafta doo is go eat at a McD's . A true american icon it is! which makes it all the harder when you realize there isn't one within 700 air miles of where I live! "beneath that old white mountain just a little southeast of Nome.." (there frozengoose!) It seems that every small town has a Mcd's morning BS table! they have even touted it in some of there own commercials.
