The trip to breakfast started early for me as I felt like I was riding to New Mexico from my West Valley home in Buckeye. The good news was that it was a nice and clear morning with fairly moderate temperatures. Favorable conditions for my 80 mile jaunt to Tortilla Flat!
It had been quite a while since I last made the trip. In the earlier days of the club, we did an annual trip up there on New Year’s Day. Unpredictable weather eventually put a damper on that tradition. In more recent years, we’ve scheduled mid-summer breakfast meetups there, but it’s been a while.

Rustler’s Rooste, Phoenix, AZ
This was my first time visiting Rustler’s Rooste and after reading a few articles about it, I discovered that this is an old time Phoenix favorite so I decided to hold our monthly AZRATPack dinner there.

Lo-Lo’s Chicken & Waffles, Gilbert, AZ
Lo-Lo’s Chicken & Waffles is a perennial favorite of mine and enjoy the location in Gilbert even though it’s a bit of a ride for me.
I decided not to take the risk and get rained on, it was monsoony looking here in the West Valley, I elected to take the car equipped with a roof and A/C. The temperatures had risen quite a bit during the day and the humidity hadn’t let up. The Ford was a good choice!

The Mid-Year Meatfest is to celebrate the half way point of the riding season for us and since we have steered in a different direction with our end of year banquet, it’s a way to keep Meatfest on the calendar.
For the second time, we’ve held our Mid-Year Meatfest at Serra Gaucha in Peoria where we enjoyed a Brazilian BBQ feast!

GO AZ Motorcycles Scottsdale
Another great trip along Route 66 in the books! This year we took an easterly heading into New Mexico which we’ve only done once before. Though we didn’t log in many miles on actual Route 66, which is very difficult in this part of Arizona, we did see many of the sites people traveling the Mother Road would have veered off to see plus we managed to avoid I-40 for the most part!

Cuban Foods Bakery & Restaurant, Phoenix, AZ
Tonight’s dinner was a combination of catching up with motorcycle friends, talking about old times and some Cuban culture.
It was a fairly warm ride over to Peoria & 43rd Ave where Cuban Foods is located. I left a little early to visit Sam Ash music store less than a mile away. When I arrived at the restaurant, Rodney, Jo and Brian were already there with our table set up.
