We are all meeting at GoAZ Motorcycles, Peoria. The GOAZ/AZRATPack Southern Arizona Tour to the Shady Dell in Bisbee, AZ. will start shortly!!. Wow its early, I know that because I just ordered a Moons over my Hammy at IHOP. The waitress said “Moons are to the West and MyHammy” is to the east (its a Dennys thing).. 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.

Though full details are being worked out, Ride Chair, Rodney Chew has announced that the Shady Dell has been named as the official hotel of the SO AZ Tour 2022. We are announcing it now because this hotel sells out well in advance and would like it to be full of people attending our ride. The Shady Dell is a truly unique destination. Here’s more on the Shady Dell:
The Shady Dell Vintage Trailer Court’s long and epic journey began in 1927 as a place to provide trailer and camping spaces to weary travelers along the famous Highway 80, which stretched from Savannah, Georgia to San Diego, California.

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.

This year’s running of our Route 66 Tour felt extra special, extra fun! The west to east route had been run in the past and all the stops are the same but it I’m sure it had to do with the eclectic mix of people that attended the ride. Along with the usual suspects, we had a bunch of new faces participate, along with people that have ridden our rides before, but on their first Route 66 Tour with us.
