6th Annual GO AZ Motorcycles Sedona Ride Recap

GO AZ Motorcycles, Scottsdale, AZ – August 19, 2017

by El Presidente

Every year I write up the description of this ride, I always include the words “challenging loop.”  Sometimes I get flak for using this phrase describing a trip to Sedona, but if you factor in the time of the year, you can get various challenges like, rain, cold, heat, sleet, and haboobs.  Over the years of putting this ride on together with our sponsor, GO AZ Motorcycles, we’ve experienced all of the above!  This year though, we were met with sunny skies and with temperatures that were not as hot as they could have been.  Though, this year, the words “challenging loop” still applied!

Heat Related Illness

Here is another worthwhile article that Rodney found in the GWRRA newsletter:

Heat related illnesses are extremely dangerous. The symptoms and causes are gradual and can accelerate to the point that can cause your body organs to function improperly.  The biggest cause of heat related illness is dehydration.  Without the proper amount of fluids and salt, vital organs like the kidneys, brain, and heart cannot function.  Your blood thickens and your heart pumps much harder to circulate blood throughout the body.

Getting in the Mindset of Tire Safety

Rodney found this article in the GWRRA newsletter that he thought should be posted here especially with the hot summer months upon us.

This month we are going to focus on the three most important things on the bike. The two contacts (tires) and the one under the helmet. Everything we do rides on the tires. We need to train ourselves on the importance of checking and maintaining our tires. Protection against avoidable breakdowns and crashes, improved vehicle handling, better fuel economy, and increased tire life. Just a few reasons to check your tire pressure EVERY day.
