Tucson, AZ Ride - 8/10/14 Plus New Ride! 8/24/14
« on: August 09, 2014, 06:07:50 PM »
Just letting any southern Arizona folks know that myself and a handful of other Royal Enfield riders are meeting up tomorrow morning at 8:30 am at Crave Coffee next door to the Royal Enfield Dealer - Scoot Over Tucson - on Broadway between Columbus and Swan. 

If you are interested in meeting us, come on out.  Afterward we will ride together out to the Tanque Verde area of town then up to Sabino and finishing the ride by taking River Rd. west from Sabino Canyon to Orange Grove.

It should be a good time  8)

Decent turn out today  8)  Even the owners of Scoot Over Tucson showed up (that's their CGT, they rode 2up).  Great group of laid-back riders, no egos, just wanting to ride easy and talk about motorcycles. :-)



Had three Hondas join us, one 'Hondamatic' another that was a cafe build, and a CBR990 that just happened to be at the coffee shop where we all met up and decided he wanted to ride with us.



This was a guy named Mike's bike, he and his wife had dual-sport tires on their bikes:



This was the Honda Cafe, it was the meatiest sounding next to mine  ;D



And the Continental GT...



I'll post up a video of the ride later today, or maybe tomorrow.

Thanks for the ride.
It looked like fun except for the number of stop lights you had to put up with.  :)

I'm surprised you didn't make it to this Jim.  Looks like a good turn out for mostly Enfield bikes.  Great pics too!

The Honda thumper is a GB500, pretty much stock except for the muffler. Great bikes, I had one.

That Honda is a cool little bike B)

We are getting together again this weekend starting at Crave Coffee next to Scoot Over Tucson at 8:30 AM.  We will ride the northside loop, from the Tanque Verde area and down Sunrise to Silverbell then downtown to have lunch at the Barrio Cafe and Grill where many older bikes can be found on any given weekend.
