Beijing Chinese Restaurant in Benson

November 2013

 For Wanda and I the ride to Benson for the November SEAT lunch was an easy 40 miles.  Our route took us over the San Pedro River in Charleston and again in St David.  There is still a nice Fall flow.  And Fall is definitely upon us.  All the trees along the river are in their final throws of changing color.  A real student of trees could easily tell which trees were which by their color.  Made for a nice ride.

 As usual the parking lot was already filling up with bikes and SEAT members by the time we got there, and we were early!  Unfortunately the cook was late and the front doors didnít open at the advertised noon hour.  For a while there was talk about riding down to Bisbee and Jimmyís Hotdogs.  I think we were all too hungry to leave and held out until the cook showed up. 

We were a hungry lot and were getting rebellious by the time the first orders came out of the kitchen.  As more plates and bowls were delivered there was time of silence as folks began to really dig in.  The portions were huge and the food was good.  The rebellion was put on hold.


A big SEAT Happy Birthday goes out to Al Maurine, a youngster in his mid-sixties.  Keep on riding Al.  No SEAT Anniversaries to celebrate this month, maybe next month.

 A total of 26 SEAT members and 1 guest made it to the lunch.  It was nice to see some members who havenít been to a SEAT lunch in a while.  Tad Roberts, who hosted the First Annual SEAT BBQ, rode his K1600 down from Casa Grande.   Those K16 guys do cover some serious miles, don-cha know.   


 Members Present:   Bodhi Anderson, Bill Bachmann, Skip Blecker, Beverly Ford, Wayne & Elaine Gerdes, Paul & Melanie Godwin, Paul Hargis, Jack & Camille Herbst, Craig Littlefield, Menachem Lorber, Al Maurine, Deryle & Wanda Mehrten, Mike Mueller, Bob & Marianne Muller, Jon & Rachelle Nicolussi, Tad Roberts, Tony Sanell, Don Schweiger, Alan Speert, John Wilson and guest Mike Davidson.


 If you are not aware SEAT is changing again.  Allen & Diane Moore who guided SEATís path for the past two years have moved to Texas.  Craig Littlefield has taken over the SEAT web site and is the new SEAT ďBenevolent DespotĒ.   Visit the SEAT web site often to see what Craig is up to!


Next month itís the Annual SEAT Christmas Party and its back at the Mehrtenís!  There will be door prizes and more.  This is a pot luck lunch and is a donít miss event!  Check for all the info and a map. 

Thanks to all the folks who came to the November SEAT lunch.  Itís you guys and gals who make the lunches so much fun.  Ride smartÖ
