July General Membership Meeting & Dinner Recap

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!

July Club Breakfast Recap

First Watch Carefree – Scottsdale, AZ

The monthly Breakfast meeting was beginning to grow even before the event began as we had over 20 pre-registered participants via AZRATPACK website! 

Friendly reminder to pre-register via the website as it lets us know how many people are planning to attend an event. This allows us the time to contact the Restaurant in advance to let them know that a large group will be descending upon them for breakfast on Saturday so they can prepare the appropriate staff.

June Club Breakfast Recap

Hassayampa BBQ – Wickenburg, AZ

This breakfast in June was full of surprises for me as I was not sure if members would be willing to ride on what was an Extreme Heat Warning weekend here in Arizona. A few days before Saturday I checked registrations and we had 3, me being one of them. I called the restaurant any way & in my optimistic view I let them know that a group of about 10 people would be showing up for breakfast on Saturday morning. Also, to request that we each have our own separate check rather than one for the table and they said no problem.  The other inquiry was to ensure they offered more than just the Breakfast burrito that was listed on their website and I was assured they had a full breakfast menu.

Route 66 Grand Tour Recap

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!

May General Membership Meeting & Dinner Recap

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.

May Club Breakfast Recap

Jim’s Burgers & Eggs – Surprise, AZ

After a late night out with a few drinks, it was a difficult task to roll out of bed this morning to head over to Surprise to Jim’s Burgers & Eggs. Normally, I probably would have slept in, but since the chair of this event, Dean is off to the SCMA gathering in Rocky Point with a few others, I stepped up to be the point person for this morning’s breakfast. So, I needed to be there!
