When talking with my friend Mtneers (Ron) at the CB1100 East Coast Rally I found out that although he had been to Portsmouth Ohio several times, he had never been to the best place on earth (imo) to get a steak, which just so happens to be located in Portsmouth Ohio. We..being members of my family... call it RIBBERS (aka The Scioto Ribber) and go there by motorcycle 2-3 times a year. Steaks and baked potatoes are grilled outside over real hickory wood fires, and they are to die for. We call the rides "Ribber Runs".
So Ron and I decided to meet there. Today all the stars lined up, perfect weather forecast for West Virginia and perfect weather for southern Ohio so we agreed to meet at 12:30 today, It's about a 2 hour ride for both of us.He from West Virginia, and me from just east of Cincinnati, Ohio. I got there a little early (duh...I'm always early lol) and Ron (Mtneers) got there right on time.... and on his CB no less. I figured he would be riding his Goldwing. It was pretty cold when I took off (upper 40's) so I rode the FJR for it's wind protection.

Steaks on the grill
Steaks on our plates ..16 oz Ribeye with baked potato. I had applesauce, Ron had baked beans, and it comes with dinner rolls. I also had Sweet tea and Ron had coffee
Mtneers about to take another bite of his steak
Had to laugh, I unconsciously said Mmmmm every time I took a bite. Did it about 1/2 dozen times before realizing I was doing it. Man, what a great steak.
After lunch, we headed over to the Mural wall. a 1/2 mile long display of dozens of giant murals painted on a flood wall. We stopped and took pics at the one for the Portsmouth Motorcycle Club the Nation's Oldest Cycling Club formed in 1893
After that we said our goodbyes, split up and headed our separate ways home.
Some ride pics..note my ride to and from was thru Shawnee State Forest, a nice curvy, hilly part of southern Ohio, made even better by the perfect weather and fall color change
Had a great time ...and an absolutely great steak. If you are in the area, you can't go wrong stopping in for a meal.
