Mission San Xavier Ride Recap

GO AZ Motorcycles Scottsdale

Today was going to be a beautiful day for a ride through the desert to see the San Xavier Mission in Tucson. As I pushed out of the garage to start the day it was a brisk 40 degrees outside, so I cranked up the seat warmer and grip warmer to MAX in order to stay warm on the way to GO AZ in Scottsdale. Upon arrival I only noticed a few members and thought maybe others decided it was too cold to ride today, fortunately I was incorrect as many others arrived a short time later. We had John & his wife Lorraine from GO AZ joining us on the ride today as well assisting us with paperwork, which is always important..

8th Holiday Party & Awards Banquet Recap

Harold’s Corral, Cave Creek, AZ

Harold’s Cave Creek Corral was a new venue for our holiday party which we held in a private room near the bar closest to the entrance. The Fireplace Room as they called it, has a nice, southwestern, rustic vibe that I’ve come to appreciate since moving to Arizona.

We were set to get started at 7:00 PM, many of us started to filter in as the buffet style dinner was being set up. It was great to see and catch up with all of the awards recipients along with others that I hadn’t seen since our last ride in November.

December Club Breakfast Recap

Matt’s Big Breakfast – Phoenix, AZ

I had all the intentions of riding to breakfast this morning, just before I was to leave I took the dogs to the back yard for a quick stretch, that was when I noticed the frost on the grass. I knew the streets were safe to ride. I just did not want to start looking for the additional layer and winter gloves needed to make the trek. So off I went on my 4 wheel beast.

Ajo Ride Recap

GO AZ Motorcycles Peoria

The last ride of 2022 started with a brisk morning ride to the start point at GO AZ Motorcycles in Peoria. After a brief rider’s meeting, we all set out for Ajo, a charming little town just north of the Mexican border along Arizona State Route 85 featuring a traditional town square where the restaurant that hosted us for lunch was located.

November Club Breakfast Recap

Phil’s Filling Station – Fountain Hills, AZ

The November breakfast ride to Fountain Hills started out as a very brisk ride at about 48 degrees when I pulled out of the garage.

The extra layers added warmth to me & the heated seat warming my butt made for a comfortable ride east into the rising sun. Due to a few road closures the 101 was a bit busy for a Saturday morning and of course the few drivers that feeling the need for speed.

October General Membership Meeting & Dinner Recap

Canton Dragon Asian Bar & Grill, Scottsdale, AZ

El Chino Loco’s pick for dinner this month is an old favorite of mine and a long time haunt of ours, especially when I still worked on that side of town often going after work for dinner and sometimes even for lunch!

Over the years, we’ve gotten to know Candy the owner, Phoebe and Anna our usual servers. They serve the style of Chinese food that I grew up with living on the East Coast, so I was excited to make the trek from Buckeye to Scottsdale for this month’s dinner as it had been a while since I had been there.
