GO AZ Motorcycles, Scottsdale, AZ – March 30, 2019
by El Chino Loco
The Southern Arizona Tour (SOAZT) was the second of the six rides of the GO AZ/AZRATPack Riders Series. This years SOAZT took us to Patagonia, Bisbee and Mt Lemmon with one night out on the road. The trip could not have started off any better. The weather was fabulous and enthusiastic group of riders came out for this ride.
The SOAZT is not a new tour to the AZRATPack. Over the years we have been to Bisbee, Tombstone and other Southern Arizona cities and towns for many entertaining rides. Any trip to Bisbee is fabulous, a quirky, fun town of the old west. Built into the side of a mountain in the fashion of San Francisco its a real treasure of time and old west culture. Copper was discovered in these mountains and the one of the largest open pit mines of its time. The COPPER QUEEN MINE was operated from late 1940s to 1974. On the way to Bisbee we will stop in Patagonia (not CHINLE, not enough time for that) for lunch.
