A beautiful day……gorgeous warm weather and blue skies, a smokin’ hot motorcycle and a long ride to Cuthbert Georgia .
I don’t think an hour and a half is too long a ride for a cuppa coffee, do you? We were rewarded with the discovery of a quaint local place called Girly Girlz.
This is a photo of their old venue just across the street. I forgot to take a snap of their new digs just yards from this place. I was so caught up in the town square and the laid back atmosphere.
The young women who own it make all the desserts, burgers and sandwiches. They also have the old building packed with antiques, homemade jewelry, lovely leather and fabric purses, glassware and University of Georgia fan trinkets.
I love the old wooden bar and brick walls.
This is a large cup of coffee but I can tell you, the small size I ordered was not much smaller than this vat of coffee!
In addition to the coffee, Doug had deep coffee mug filled with warm German chocolate upside down cake topped with ice cream. I had the “small” coffee and a piece of caramel cake.
It was too much cake. Between the caffeine and the sugar I felt as if I could run home. I cut a good sized wedge of the cake off for Tristan and packed it in the saddle bag. NOT a good idea………the saddle bag is over the pipes and by the time we stopped for gas in Bainbridge, the caramel had come out over the side of the Styrofoam container. I had to toss it.
There is a grassy courtyard in the town center; towering oaks shade the faded wooden park benches. There is also a very grand Confederate memorial in the center ….see below…..

I felt like we’d gone back in time…
Loud, shiny Rinehart pipes….the cake (which I had to toss out) was transported I the saddle bags above them.
Fun ride – total ride time was 3 hours round trip. About 122 miles. Not bad. The cake didn’t survive and I was a wee bit achy sitting in the saddle that long…but wow, it sure was fun!
Time to ride!
