Cindy Louís II, Tucson, AZ
We broke all records at Cindy Louís!† Our lunch gatherings are as big as some rallies!† So many excellent folks come to the SEAT lunches, couldnít ask for a better crowd.
†††† Didnít hurt that the weather was almost perfect.† In the last few years we have been rained out once, and even then we had ten folks make it.††† Guess we are just lucky.
†††† Cindy Louís did an excellent job of taking care of us.† A Goldwing group was also there at about the same time.† They set around back at the picnic tables and got good service as well.† A couple of our Goldwing riding SEAT members sat around back.† Was a bit cool in the shade.
†††† The array of bikes in the parking lot never ceases to amaze me.† It is really impressive when you ride up and the parking lot is full of so much eye candy.† Lots of real riders with their well maintained bikes shining in the sun.† Impressive.
†††† This is the same weekend that Tubac had its annual art festival.† The whole area around Tubac was packed.† We rode by with the intention of stopping.† As in the past, they were directing us to park out in a field.† We rode on.† Too bad as there are always nice pieces of jewelry at the Tubac festival.
†††† Our normal zip around Nogales, River Road, was under construction.† There is quite a bit of work going on at the bridge at Kino Springs.† An AZ Highway Patrol cruiser was parked just down the street.† Be careful.
†††† Summer is still a couple of months away.† These are some of the best riding months of the year.† April we will lunch at the Longhorn Grill at the Arivaca Junction, Easter Sunday.† Our lunch ride in May will be on Motherís Day, arenít we such a family group!
†††† Lots of riding plans are being put together as the Rally season begins.† Be sure to check the Rides Races and Rallies to see where to plan your next ride.
†††† The June SEAT overnighter is set for Springerville.† See more in this issue.†† Donít forget that July and August will be breakfast gatherings.† Just too hot for folks to travel during the summer months.† Ride safe!
