The Big Dam Ride

This is the annual big ride to the dam . There will be a lot of riders in this group, as there will be a few different valley groups participating. This is always a great ride, and a good time for everybody. "NOTE" Do dress for the weather it has been very cold in the past. The ride meets at Home Depot Power/Superstition Figure on a 9:00 AM ITW time. The ride will go East on the US60 to Globe,Then on to the Roosevelt Dam overlook for a Group picture. Then as a group on up to Jakes Corner for lunch on the patio. If you stay for awhile the group will continue on up to the Beeline Hwy, and back to the valley. The end of the ride will be at at Beeline Hwy where it crosses Busch Hwy. This is where everybody splits off, and goes their own way home where ever that may be. Have a Great RIDE, AND A SAFE, AND VERY "Happy NEW YEAR EVERYONE".............................. From Randy Kunz, and Jim Gravatt, Ron & Heide Young, and Tim Temple your organizers...

    Managed to stay warm and have a great day riding, meeting new friendly riders, and seeing a lot of regulars, as well as some old buddys, was hard to stop and say hello to everyone. I'm glad to hear the one casualty is gonna recover. Special thanks to JP for volunteering to lead everyone in who started at the DD. In one word, AWESOME.

    It is good to know Cindy will be okay. Thank you all that stayed with her until she was under the care of professionals.

    Latest update on Cindy who is a member of Goldwing Troupe D who had an accident on rte 188. She has a small hole in her lung they expect to heal itself. Her hip fractures are hairline, so that is looking good as well. We are still trying to find one missing saddlebag though, it wasn't even found close to the bike and had her purse in it. I want to thank the 4 other folks who stayed with her and kept her calm and still, until the ambulence arrived to take her to the helicopter. Our prayers are with her for a speedy recovery.

    Weather will be good with lows in the lower 40's and highs in the 50's in Roosevelt to 60's in the valley under partly cloudy skies, and I ain't clowning around.

    Remember, "the cold" is part of the ride. That's what makes it challenging. Lyn had to work yesterday. So I did the ride as a warm up. I hit rain at Jake's Corner and turned around. Hope to see you all brave souls Saturday.

    I am going to try and figure out how many bikes there will be altogether. Would you do all of us a favor, and if you are in another group, would you please only sign up on one site. I may give Jake's Corner a heads up on the numbers.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
