December 2nd Sunday Breakfast Recap

Matt’s Big Breakfast Biltmore – Phoenix, AZ – December 9, 2018

by El Presidente

This morning was extra chilly here in far out west Buckeye.  At 45 degrees, I felt there was no reason to be cold, so I opted for the warm confines of my car.  Plus I hadn’t been on a motorcycle since the last breakfast so there was going to need to be a bunch of extra prep this morning like getting the heated vest together and airing up the tires of either the Honda or the Harley.  The Ford was a good choice this morning!

Final Ride

Williams, AZ – November 28, 2018

by Al Messimer

 Dear RATs,

This is to let you know that I have thoroughly enjoyed my rides with your group (although limited by my Williams’ location and several health issues over the past 5-years). Whenever I recall riding with you, I get a big bug eatin’ grin on my face and wish I could have participated more. Victor, our fearless leader, has been the focal point, friend and motivator for me, and I will always cherish the thoughtful, well-planned rides and camaraderie he has managed to quietly inspire through the years. Thank you, El Presidente.

November General Membership Meeting & Dinner Recap

Lo Lo’s Chicken & Waffles, Gilbert, AZ – November 29, 2018

by El Presidente

Lo Lo’s Chicken & Waffles is one of my perennial favorites, but this time we tried out their Gilbert location instead of the usual one in Scottsdale that we go to.  Luckily, when our group started arriving, there was plenty of room.  Our group grew and grew along with the amount of regular patrons sitting down for dinner.

by El Presidente

On November 13th, those of you who reserved TeePees at the Wigwam in Holbrook for our 6’s Wild Grand Tour through our website were issued partial refunds for overpayments.  We do not want to make a profit on you!  We only wish to cover the actual hotel costs and processing fees we incurred.  The rate we charged took taxes and other fees into account that ended up not being charged.  Please email victor@azratpack.com for ask any of our board members any questions you have.  Thanks for making it such a great ride!

November 2nd Sunday Breakfast Recap

Haymaker Restaurant – Litchfield Park, AZ – November 11, 2018

by El Presidente

It started as a chilly morning ride with temperatures in the high 40’s as I left the house.  I had considered taking my Honda since it’s all wired for heated vest and has heated grips.  But it was a short ride to my destination for a change.  I elected to take the Harley and forgo all of the electrically heated luxuries.  This morning’s breakfast was at the Haymaker Restaurant in Litchfield Park.
