2020: The Soon To Be Forgotten Year

Parts Unknown, AZ

By El Presidente

We had a lot to talk about at last night’s meeting of the AZRATPack’s Board of Directors. The conditions in which we cancelled the Rt 66 Tour along with most of our schedule this year have not changed. Face coverings, group size limitations and social distancing regulations/ordinances are still in place.

Due to the difficulty of holding events in the spirit in which we feel represents our club, fun, tight knit, entertaining and safe, we feel it is best to cancel the remaining scheduled events for the year. The affected events are the Alien Abduction Grand Tour scheduled for October and the Ajo Ride scheduled for November.

On a more positive and optimistic note, we have come up with a flexible plan for 2021.

Route 66 Tour Canceled

It is with great regret that I must announce that this year’s Route 66 Tour is cancelled. After meeting with our Board of Directors on Monday, we decided that conditions haven’t changed so that we could conduct a fun and entertaining event.

Though statistically, things seem to be trending in the right direction, local governments and establishments have not loosened up social gathering regulations/guidelines. Since our events just about always draws 20+ participants, we do not feel we are able conduct an event that is in the spirit of how we do things.

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.
