The ride over to Green Valley for the lunch on Sunday the 13th
of October was beautiful. Fall has fell and the trees along the
mountain ridges are turning colors. It was even a bit chilly
considering how warm it was only a few days ago. Winter is
coming to the desert, time to go for a ride!
Macís Pub and Patio is a nice place. The staff was friendly and
took good care of us. Wanda won a drink ticket from them the
last time we were there and they honored it for two. Nice of
them. Their fish and chips are really good and we got a nice
big portion for a Sunday lunch. They also have quite a few
brews on tap. Good lunch.
Nice to see a couple of the new K1600s in the parking lot. Dick
and Louise rode their six over from Silver City, NM. So far no
new water cooled R bike though. That may change once the new RT
comes out. It was an interesting collection of bikes and SEAT
members for sure - some long-time members we havenít seen for a
while and some new faces as well. Members and guests: Deryle &
Wanda Mehrten, Bob & Marianne Muller, Jeff Dean, Al Maurine,
Rick Melton, Don Silvernail, Bill Bachmann, Don Schweiger, Roger
Austin, Alan Speert, Jon & Rachelle Nicolussi, Nick Clement &
Terry Golden, John Wilson, Dick & Louise Sackett, Rich & Claudia
Riley, Richard Pettigrew and Menachem Lorber.
The afternoon weather was turning windy when folks began to
leave. The ride down I-19 to River Road was blustery with a
nasty head wind. Once down to back road speeds, it wasnít so
bad. Another excellent ride home.
Thanks to all the SEAT members and guests for coming to the
lunch. Itís you guys who make it so much fun. Ride safe and
see you next month!
