On Saturday April 9th the following people met at the Sky Rider Cafe @ Marana Airport for breakfast, Bud, Rev, Frank & Kate, Bruce & Bonni, Stan, Russ, and yours truly.  After breakfast Stan, Bud, Russ and myself went to Kitt Peak.  I made it to the base but didn’t ride up due to my neck issues.

I just wanted to send out a short note that we had a pretty good turnout for our March dinner ride even if it was on the WRONG Tuesday of the month.  I inadvertently schedule it for the fourth Tuesday when it is supposed to be the LAST Tuesday of the month.  However that being said Bari – Robi and their friend Lee, Frank & Kate, Bruce & Bonnie, Mel & Marsha, Alan & Susan, and yours truly made the dinner ride.  I unfortunately was under the weather so I stay just to take pictures and say hello.  I have a terrible sinus infection which comes upon me about once a year and it has taken hold.

Here are a few pictures.

On March 1st we had a Birthday Ride for Bill Calkins.  We meet @ Oracle & McGee Chevron and departed for Globe to meet up with a BK Member from Alberta V Rick Brown and his wife Ruth in Superior.  Rick & Ruth are staying Mesa in an RV Park.  They towed their 2016 Indian Roadmaster behind the RV.  Those who were at the Chevron were Stan Thibaut, Mick, Mike Proctor, Susan Wagner, Alan Stewart, Bil Calkins, John Chruscinski, Bruce Distler, and yours truly.  When we arrived in Winkleman we found out that US 60 was closed to traffic east and west do to dynamiting the highway during the morning hours.  We contacted Rick who drove down to Winkleman to meet us there.  Once there off we went up AZ 77 to Globe.  After a few wrong turns and finding restaurants closed we settled in @ El Rey’s Reynosa in Globe.  We were able to sit out side to enjoy the great Arizona weather and good Mexican fare.  After lunch we all headed back west toward 177 and Superior.  From there Rick & Ruth headed back to Mesa along with John.  The rest of us went down 177 back through Kearny and Winkleman and headed to our respective homes.  Here are photos from the ride.

Well we had our first dinner ride for 2016 @ McGraws Cantina.  We had a few members make the ride, John & Garnetti Falzone and their son, Alan Stewart & Susan Wagner, Bruce and Bonni Distler, and out president Stan & Patti Thibaut.  The weather was nice when we arrived but by the time we left the temps had dropped to 40 degrees.  It was pretty chilly riding back to the west side of town.  By the time I got home the temp had risen to 50.  Amazing how much the temps changed from one side of town to the other.
