On Wednesday September 7th 15 riders met at Viv’s Café on Catalina Highway for breakfast and a ride up Mt. Lemmon to Sky Valley to honor fallen Officer Robert Cummins. Those from BKAZIX were Alan Stewart, Susan Wagner, new Member Brad Atkinson & his wife Marcia, and your truly. During breakfast we heard “Someone’s bike just fell over.” We got up and looked and sure enough Alan Stewart’s BMW was on its side. Apparently a P/U who was parked next to him cut to soon when backing out and clipped Alan’s bike. It scraped his crash bars, pushed bar into the engine block and dented it, only with a few other things. After getting all of the information Alan returned to finish breakfast. Once breakfast was over 11 bikes with 13 riders headed up Catalina Highway for Ski Valley. Once at the top we pulled into the parking lot of the Iron Door and chatted for awhile. We looked at the damage done to Alan’s bike along with normal bike talk. It was a balmy 70 degree at the top of Mt. Lemmon. One by one people slowly broke up and rode back home. When I got to the bottom of Catalina highway the temperature was 95. By the time I made it back to the NW Side of Tucson it was 102. All in all it was a great day for a ride to honor Officer Robert Cummins. Below are the pictures of the days activities.
