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

by El Presidente

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.

The gpX-Files

By El Presidente

As the Board of Directors of this club is putting together the 2020 ride schedule, I thought it would be a great time to write about a couple things I found when importing GPX files of trips that someone else has routed on Basecamp or another mapping software.

Route 66 Tour Details Announced

Parts Unkown, AZ

by El Presidente

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.

Please RSVP

I’d like to clear up a little confusion as to how and why to RSVP to any of our events.  Here are some guidelines for you:

  • Please always RSVP on the website.  This makes it easy for us to get an accurate count in one place for who’s attending an event.  Very important for 2nd Sunday Breakfast and General Membership Meetings & Dinner that involve restaurants.  If we have a good amount of RSVPs, we will call ahead, make a reservation or simply give a warning that a large group is coming.  This will help us have enough spots at the table for people to sit and eat comfortably.
  • Facebook RSVPs will not be counted!  Always follow the link on the Facebook Event page to our website to RSVP.
  • Entering bike information helps us determine how to divide groups on a ride and alerts us of what type of group is coming.  That way we know if we’re going to have a bunch of cruisers or sport bikes or both!
  • In the future, we will be using the RSVP on the website as a check in for an event.

Thanks for being a member and if you’re not, you can become one here!
