Mission San Xavier Ride Recap

GO AZ Motorcycles Scottsdale

Today was going to be a beautiful day for a ride through the desert to see the San Xavier Mission in Tucson. As I pushed out of the garage to start the day it was a brisk 40 degrees outside, so I cranked up the seat warmer and grip warmer to MAX in order to stay warm on the way to GO AZ in Scottsdale. Upon arrival I only noticed a few members and thought maybe others decided it was too cold to ride today, fortunately I was incorrect as many others arrived a short time later. We had John & his wife Lorraine from GO AZ joining us on the ride today as well assisting us with paperwork, which is always important..

Ten, Nine, eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One — a great flash of light, a mushroom shaped cloud rising into the desert sky, a moment that changed the course of civilization.

Fast forward to October 15, 2022 and you are waiting at the Stallion Gate of the White Sands Missile Test Range waiting to goto the exact place where the the bomb was first set off. Wait, this place is top secret? radioactive? Radiation is dangerous right?.!

Route 66 Grand Tour Recap

GO AZ Motorcycles Scottsdale

Another great trip along Route 66 in the books! This year we took an easterly heading into New Mexico which we’ve only done once before. Though we didn’t log in many miles on actual Route 66, which is very difficult in this part of Arizona, we did see many of the sites people traveling the Mother Road would have veered off to see plus we managed to avoid I-40 for the most part!
