March 2nd Sunday Breakfast Recap

Harold’s, Cave Creek, AZ – March 8, 2020

by  El Presidente

What a beautiful day for a ride! I started the morning getting the VFR out of the garage for some much needed exercise! I rolled up the 303 to I-17 North for a quick one exit romp and then off on Carefree Highway.

As I approached Harold’s, I saw that there were a lot of bikes parked up front. Low and behold a large group of us had gotten there early and were all bench racing in the parking lot as we waited for Harold’s to open up at 8.

February General Membership Meeting & Dinner Recap

Old Pueblo Café, Litchfield Park, AZ – February 27, 2020

by El Presidente

This month I thought it would be fun to try something a little off of the beaten path in the West Valley. The Old Pueblo Café in Litchfield Park is located in an old section of town where there were a few restaurants with outdoor seating. Though this part of town is a bit older, it is definitely charming!

Lake Havasu Ride Recap

GO AZ Motorcycles, Peoria, AZ – December 7, 2019

by  El Presidente

Our last ride of the year was a return to some of the roots from when we were a Triumph Owners Club.  Every year, we would take our “British” bikes (some were built in Indonesia…) over London Bridge in Lake Havasu.  Though we switched our focus over the years to being more about riding than what brand of motorcycle you own, we thought it would be fun to visit Lake Havasu and the curiosity of London Bridge.
