Diner of the Week: Crossroads Diner in Dallas, Texas. The juncture that has brought Chefs Tom Fleming and Carl Strelecki together started from a relationship born over 10 years ago. Working together at Lombardi Mare, Tom as the Executive Chef and Carl as his apprentice, they quickly realized they had a strong common denominator: they were both inspired by their mother’s cooking. This inspiration translated to many fundamental values shared between themthe most notable being simple ingredients, delicious food, and value-driven dishes. Over the years, their roads would continue to cross as they again worked together at several notable restaurants and hotels, including Central 214 at Hotel Palomar. The final juncture came when this complimentary pair realized it was time for them to take the ultimate step, opening their own restaurant. Melt-in-your-mouth buttermilk Pancakes, savory Meatloaf, creamy Mac and Cheese, signature Sticky Buns and memorable Quiches are a small sampling of the extensive menu Crossroads Diner offers. Selections are many, but one thing remains constant: ample servings of fresh, made-from-scratch food that is as delicious as it is affordable. Check out Crossroads Diner website. Google map.

Saturday, February 8th on Those Diner and Motorcycle Guys: In 1965 Craig Vetter graduated with a degree in Industrial Design from the University of Illinois and from that point on never took a normal job.  He simply designed the things that HE wanted, made them and sold them.  His work in life has always been “design-driven” as opposed to “financially driven” or “marketing driven.” Windjammer fairing and saddlebags of the 70s created the modern touring motorcycle.  By 1977,Vetter had factories in Illinois and California, employing over five hundred people, and had grown to be second in size to Harley-Davidson. Vetter has been awarded over twenty US patents and /or trademarks.Craig’s Vetter Rocket 3 design of 1969 became the Triumph Hurricane of 1973 and was selected for display in the Guggenheim Museum’s “Art of the Motorcycle."  Bike Magazine named the Hurricane as one of the “100 best motorcycle designs ever." Other Vetter motorcycle designs include the Bonneville TT, Terraplane sidecar and the Mystery Ship. Vetter scooter designs include the Defiant and Torpedo and a series of Streamliners. Craig married Carol, the prettiest girl at his company and in 1978, sold everything to become a husband and Daddy.  Today, every motorcycle manufacturer features at least one machine in its lineup that is substantially derived from Craig’s designs. In 1980, in an effort to learn what the upper limits of efficient transportation might be at real highway speeds, Craig hosted the international “Craig Vetter Fuel Economy Runs” in California.  Driving a course from San Luis Obispo through Big Sur to Monterey, the winning mileage went from 98 mpg in 1980 to 470 mpg in 1985. One of the winning Vetter machines is on permanent display at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC. In 1999, the American Motorcyclist Association inducted Craig into the “Motorcycle Hall of Fame. ” Today, the Museum features a permanent display of his work. Check out Craig's website and the Vetter Owners Group.

Saturday, June 29th on Those Diner and Motorcycle Guys: Carla King’s “Motorcycle Misadventures” began when she was 14 years old in rural North Carolina. Carla identified the broken down old Honda Enduro in the barn as her escape vehicle and her dad said "If you can fix it you can ride it." And so her two-wheeled life journey began. In 1995 Carla did a 4-month stint as a test rider for Ural America during their R&D phase, testing and improving the bike for the American market. What eventually became the “Motorcycle Misadventures” series continued in China, India, Europe, and Africa on other cranky indigenous motorcycles like the Chinese Chang Jiang and the Royal Enfield Bullet. On the way, she’s authored many free ebooks, like Motorcycling for Beginners, and she’s been published in anthologies, like the great Travelers' Tales series and In Search of Adventure, as well as in newspapers and magazines. When Carla returned home from China, she was invited to join a notorious writing group, the Wild Writing Women, twelve women adventure travel writers in the San Francisco Bay Area who met once monthly to workshop their stories, make dinner, drink and laugh and commiserate. They  self-published Wild Writing Women: Stories of World Travel, which was an instant hit, so much so that it was picked up by a New York publishing house the following year and is now a classic. Carla then met Lisa Alpine, a travel and writing partner, and they founded Self-Publishing Boot Camp in 2010 which has grown continuously.

Saturday, April 13th on Those Diner and Motorcycle GuysThe fast-growing trend of women riding motorcycles is illustrated in the book Chicks On Bikes by Christina Shook. This photographic coffee-table book is the first to visually chronicle the culture and lifestyle of women motorcyclists. Women are the fastest growing segment of the biking world and they have created their own style, distinct from their male counterparts. Chicks On Bikes is an intimate look at the stories and images of women bikers.   The photos and profiles range from sassy young racer girls to wind-roughened seniors, from outlaw style to corporate-chic, from greasy mechanics to fashion designers. This book casts aside stereotypes and takes a look at who real women riders are today. It conveys a woman’s passion for riding and takes a hard look at the risks assumed. “I photographed and wrote this book to show the spirit and character of real women motorcyclists. As a rider myself, I had the unique opportunity to delve into the rich culture and imagery of women bikers,” Christina Shook 
Diner of the Week: The A1 Diner in Gardiner, Maine, a classic 1946  Worcester.

: Tiffany Coates originally set off on her very first bike trip heading to India with her best friend and just two months bike riding experience between them. It proved to be a baptism of fire as they wobbled their way out of the UK and across Europe, negotiating with the various bureaucratically obsessed border crossings as they meandered and muddled their way through Asia to India. breaking bones, doing bad Abba impressions and reading maps upside down all whilst wrestling a quarter ton bike with the two of them on it. That first journey was supposed to last nine months but Tiffany ended up crossing four continents and spending two and a half years on the road, bitten by the bike travelling bug. Tiffany Coates is now the world's foremost female bike adventurer; many countries and nearly 200,000 miles have been covered since her first journey. Her motorcycle travels include Asia, Australia, Africa, the Americas, Timbuctoo, Outer Mongolia and even Everest Base Camp.
