Knucklehead Cafe August 14 Daniel Gillis and I loaded up and headed out to meet the group in Joppa, AL. KSU at 9:00. We had a good group riding with us. Jimmy and Debi Barnes, Mike and Tina Brown, Daniel Gillis and I, Charlie Joiner and Steve Wisner. Jimmy and Debi Barnes had our route planned out for the day.

 

We were heading to the Knucklehead Cafe in Rockmart, GA! After chatting a bit and fueling up, we headed out down hwy 69N, hit hwy 431 and then onto CR-227, hwy 68 and hwy 411 in Leesburg. We ended up on a pig trail or two and came out onto hwy 100 in Cave Springs. We made our way to hwy 278 and on into Rockmart, GA.

It was a nice, scenic ride. When we arrived at the Knucklehead, there were quite a few bikes in the parking lot. We lined up and snapped a few pictures before going inside.

   The cafe was really neat on the inside. It was decorated with motorcycle related memorabilia and signs. There were several old bikes in the cafe on display. It was like walking into a mini motorcycle museum! John Kelly and a Bob Pruitt surprised us by joining the group there for lunch.

The cafe had a pretty good menu with reasonably priced options and a decent selection of cold brews. There was even a nice sized salad bar and a small souvenir counter. The service was pretty slow, but we killed the time by enjoying each other’s company with our usual camaraderie. What fun!

   After gearing up, we headed back to Alabama with our belly’s full. Daniel and I split off from the group about halfway, after saying our goodbyes. We had to get back home, so we took a faster route. Another state and another great find! I logged 310 miles for the day.2022 Knucklehead Cafe 12022 Knucklehead Cafe 22022 Knucklehead Cafe 32022 Knucklehead Cafe 42022 Knucklehead Cafe 52022 Knucklehead Cafe 62022 Knucklehead Cafe 72022 Knucklehead Cafe 82022 Knucklehead Cafe 92022 Knucklehead Cafe 102022 Knucklehead Cafe 112022 Knucklehead Cafe 122022 Knucklehead Cafe 132022 Knucklehead Cafe 142022 Knucklehead Cafe 152022 Knucklehead Cafe 162022 Knucklehead Cafe 172022 Knucklehead Cafe 182022 Knucklehead Cafe 192022 Knucklehead Cafe 202022 Knucklehead Cafe 212022 Knucklehead Cafe 222022 Knucklehead Cafe 232022 Knucklehead Cafe 24
