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!

It has come to my attention that there was a bit of confusion and some disorganization at the start of the Southern Arizona Tour. I would like to re-iterate the procedures that has already been established by the club’s Board of Directors for the start of each ride.

People started arriving early at IHOP at 7 checked or at the shop at 8a checkin for a 8:30 prompt departure. This year we have quite a turnout! Thiry riders at final count. We have riders from CA, TX and PARTS UKNOWN (PU)… LOL. In addition some Husband/Wives and children came out.

It’s been over a year since I’ve been on the road with the RatPack. It felt great to see old friends and new faces on our first ride of 2022! We welcomed new board members, Sebastian and Dean, and missed our fearless leader, Victor, as he couldn’t make this ride.
The ride started at GO AZ Motorcycles in Scottsdale, which as always, showed massive support for the Club. I led the rider’s meeting, and it was great to see all the eager faces ready to brave a somewhat chilly morning. With 20 plus bikes in attendance, I led the way out of the dealership around 9:45 am. Rodney and Stoops ran ahead of the group to set up some drone shots at the dam, and Dean, on his glorious Gold Wing, was the ride sweep. We didn’t know it then, but that Gold Wing, with its extremely comfortable passenger seat, would star later in the ride.

Since 2016, we have given out awards annually, except in 2020 for obvious reasons, to participants in the rides that we partner with GO AZ Motorcycles. It is with great pleasure that we get back to a little normalcy and announce our awards recipients for 2021.

Keeping track of who was on the 2021 rides was a bit of a challenge for a variety of reasons. For 2022, we are implementing some changes to registration so that we can better keep track on who is on our rides and have a backup in case a question arises at the end of the year for when we hand out awards.
