Las Trankas, Sierra Vista, AZ

 October 2007 

 Several months back Bob & Marianne Muller took us to the Las Trankas Restaurant in Rio Rico.  A very nice restaurant with good food, unfortunately to small for a SEAT lunch.

     When Las Trankas opened in Sierra Vista, several SEAT members suggested we lunch there.  It was way big enough to handle even a record attendance, and the food was just as good as the Rio Rico Las Trankas.

     One whole side of the parking lot was lined with SEAT members’ bikes when we got there.  I double checked the time, were we late?  Not really, you know those SEAT members, they get there early so they have plenty of day left to get in as much riding as possible!

     And what weather we’re having!  This must be the second or third Indian Summer.  You couldn’t ask for nicer days, cool mornings and warm afternoons.  This is the time of year to head out to the Mojave Desert, just too hot to be there any other time.

     It was good seeing all the SEAT members from Tucson.  We even had a couple of members come all the way over from Sierra Vista…wait a minute, we were in Sierra Vista!  Wanda and I enjoyed an eleven mile round trip ride.  It was a good one, didn’t even get the bike dusty!

     Next month we lunch in Benson, right after The Deming Gathering.  Looking forward to seeing you there.  Ride safe.
