The April 2005 Lunch La Casita Mexican Restaurant, Mammoth, AZ
†††† This is the second time SEAT has lunched at the La Casita Restaurant in Mammoth.† Both times have been excellent.† The food was terrific and they really did take good care of us.
†††† The ride to Mammoth is a pleasant, short ride north of Tucson.† This area has built up so fast over the last ten years, itís hard to recognize parts of the area.† Construction is on-going on both sides of the road.
†††† The turn out was really great.† Meeting new members is really nice.† Some of the old time SEAT members we havenít seen in quite a while came out, too.† Donít stay away so long guys and gals!† We miss you!
†††† We had two of the newest BMW models at the lunch.† Craig Littlefield was on his new K1200S and Fincher Russell was on his new R1200RT.† If you didnít make it to Iron Horseís Open House for the introduction of the new models, go on by and take a look.† These are some really trick bikes.
†††† Finding a restaurant that can accommodate us is getting a bit difficult.† We hate to go to the same places all the time, but when we have 50 to 60 folks ride to our lunches not even some of the bigger places can take care of us.† We really appreciate your recommendations for places to get together.
†††† Rally season is upon us.† Over the next 6 months every state in the union will have a rally or two.† Our sister club the Phoenix International Touring Society (PITS) will be having their rally in May over the weekend of the 20th to the 22nd in Heber, AZ.† Check out the Rides, Races & Rallies page to keep up on all the happenings.
†††† Next month we will be in Tubac, south of Tucson on I-19.† If you really like Italian cuisine, this is the weekend to make it to a SEAT lunch.† And donít forget, this is Mothersí Day!† See you there!
