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.
