Lake Havasu Ride Recap

GO AZ Motorcycles, Peoria, AZ – December 7, 2019

by  El Presidente

Our last ride of the year was a return to some of the roots from when we were a Triumph Owners Club.  Every year, we would take our “British” bikes (some were built in Indonesia…) over London Bridge in Lake Havasu.  Though we switched our focus over the years to being more about riding than what brand of motorcycle you own, we thought it would be fun to visit Lake Havasu and the curiosity of London Bridge.

Route 66 Tour: Great 1st Multi-day Ride & Updates

Parts Unkown, AZ

The 2019 Route 66 Tour is fast approaching!  This is a great ride to go on if you’ve been pining for going on a multi-day trip but haven’t had the confidence on going on one by yourself.  With short riding days and frequent stops, this is the perfect ride to get started on!  Also, since we’re never really that far away from civilization, you can always pick something up at the store that you may have forgotten to pack or for a circumstance that you didn’t plan for (cold weather).  Heck, we’ll be passing not too far away from one GO AZ’s newest locations in Flagstaff.

Join us for a ride that has been a long standing tradition of our club.  Our annual Route 66 Tour will start in Scottsdale then lend you an opportunity to live “Take It Easy” by the Eagles and “Stand on the corner of Winslow, Arizona”.  We will then head west on as much of the Mother Road as possible and end the night in historic Williams.  The next morning, we will roll through Ash Fork and head into Seligman for breakfast, the town that inspired the original Disney movie, “Cars”.  After breakfast we will continue on Route 66 and make stops in Hackberry, Kingman and historic Oatman where Clark Gable and Carol Lombard spent their wedding night.  We will then head for Laughlin, NV and the Colorado Belle for a stop for the night.  On Sunday morning, we’ll get up early and head to a more modern Route 66 attraction, Topock66 for breakfast.  From here,  you’re on your own to head back home via the route of your choosing.

Alien Encounters Grand Tour Recap

GO AZ Motorcycles, Peoria, AZ – May 3, 2019

by  El Presidente

Planning for the Alien Encounters tour starts about a year ago when California AZRATPacker, Darlene Fong sent me a couple of interesting links she found while looking up alien themed places to visit.  The first was Coyote’s Flying Saucer Repair in Ocotillo, CA and the second was the Integretron in Landers.  Loving the two suggestions for stopping points on a future ride, I started to formulate a route to tie the two together.  I then added a trip through Death Valley and El Chino Loco suggested the Atomic Inn in Beatty, NV as a stop for the night.  Behold, the Alien Encounters Grand Tour was born!
