SEAT Lunch at the Country View Restaurant, Benson, AZ    

What a great turn out!  Last year coming back from the Gathering in Deming, it rained and snowed.  That year all 20 of us enjoyed a good lunch at one of Benson’s golf courses and shivered on home. 

     This year the weather couldn’t have been nicer; and the collection of bikes couldn’t have been better!  Lots of the latest BMW has to offer.  If you are interested in seeing and getting close to the new Beemers, going to a SEAT lunch will definitely let you get up close and personal.

     The Country View Restaurant was truly happy to see us.  They had a table all set up and must have had an extra server or two to take care of us.  Good food, too.  We will keep them in mind for another SEAT lunch.  Thanks to Mick McKinnon for recommending them.

     Nice to see some of the newer SEAT members come out to a lunch.  Besides the ride, the best part of going to a SEAT lunch is getting together with other SEAT members.  Got a tech question?  Got a model specific question?  Just ask around at one of the monthly lunches and chances are you will get the right answer.

     To all the folks that have come out to a lunch this year, thanks for your company.  To those who haven’t made a lunch yet, we are saving the best for last as next month is the SEAT Christmas party.  SEAT only does two events a year and this is the is “The Big One”.  Mark your calendar for the second Sunday in December and come out and join us in Sierra Vista.  Looking forward to seeing you!
