"R" Burger Joint
We started off in Fort Mohave when Terry and Pam Kelly greeted the Bullhead City area riders, and made sure the release-ride form was filled out by each rider. At our meeting point in Lake Havasu City, they continued to make sure all riders signed the release form and welcomed the riders to the our event. Kingman riders didn't show...so Terry and Pam utilized their resources and the Havasu City crew guided us to off-street parking, near the boat launch. The location was perfect as it offered the riders several choices to either take the boat over to Havasu Landing, check out the cool car show, or dine locally at one of the restaurants in Lake Havasu City.
The ride ended at the parking area for the boat launch and each rider made their individual choices for lunch. I had the opportunity to ride with Terry and Pam during the day and experience their dedication to the dealership and HOG Chapter 1061.
A special thanks to Gina Webb (Activities Officer) for planning a great event at the Rockabilly Reunion held this weekend in Lake Havasu City.
Chapter Director Gary Horton took charge of the ride as riders from Kingman, Bullhead City, Fort Mohave and Lake Havasu City got together at Hobby Lobby in Lake Havasu City, before the group ended the ride at the venue site of the Rockabilly Reunion This gave all of us a chance to interact with each other, introduce new riders, and plan for the adventure at the Rockabilly Reunion.
Gary talked about the upcoming March Swap Meet at the dealership, new rides and ideas for 2018, and gave us a vision of how the Chapter is going to succeed in 2018, based upon his recent Harley Officers Training and planned networking with other HOG Chapter Officers.

Patrick and Dale conducted the meeting as the Officers were out-of-town for training. Both Patrick and Dale did an outstanding job...the meeting was short, concise, and they adjusted it due to the cold windy weather conditions.
Topoc Marina Ride
Over 30 chapter members rode their Harley Davidson motorcycles from Kingman, Bullhead City, and Lake Havasu City to Topoc Marina for lunch. Good food, great company, and a fantastic day to be out for a Putt!
Special thanks to Rudy Blum and Mark Recker for their photos.
Once again the Ladies of Harley put together an awsome event. What a great day for sailing! Unfortunitly, kayaking was planned and due to the high winds the kayaks stayed on the trailer. However, a picnic was scheduled to follow the kayaking and 30+ chapter members and friends showed up. Feed them and they will come. It tuirned out to be a fun and relaxing day even with the wind. Thanks to Marc Recker for some photos and Thank-you LOH.
It was a nice dool day (as this summer has been going), and the rain held off for a while. Good to see everyone in good cooler spirits.
Walnut Canyon Ride
As we hiked to the bottom of Walnut Canyon, we realized we had to out! Well if the Sinagua could do it, so could we. I'll bet they were in better physical shape.
Grand Canyon Caverns Ride
After a cool trip deep in the caverns, chapter members found themselves looking at a heavy rain downpour. Therefore, to relieve stress, eat pie!
White Mountain Rally
A Ride In The Mountains
like a child at Christmas, there is one time of the year that I look forward to getting out on our bike. That is the end of June for the White Mountain Bike Rally in the White Mountains of Arizona. My husband Adam took me to our first rally in 2016 in the White Mountains. That event left such an impression that we wanted to share what a great experience this is and presented it to our chapter.
On Friday June 23rd, our group of chapter riders; Dale & Gina Webb, Dan & Bunnie Weaver, Patrick Lilly, and Adam and I all met for a hearty breakfast at Cracker Barrel at 6am. After we exchanged stories of anticipation and excitement and a quick briefing we all headed out of town on Rt. 66 north on our adventure. After a quick refreshment stop and fuel stop we headed south out of Flagstaff. Adam chose our route along Lake Mary, which proved to be the best route in comparison to I-40 in the heat. Our picturesque journey included great opportunities for wild life watching to start off our weekend. As we meandered into Payson, the temperature heated up and made us thankful that we weren’t out on the Interstate. As we arrived in Show Low, the location of our hotel, we were thankful to finally be at our hotel destination. It took only a few moments to be disappointed that all of our rooms weren’t ready. Once everyone was checked into their rooms, we headed to our final destination of the day, the Hon-Dah resort for the Rally registration. As we rode into the back parking lot of the Hon-Dah resort we were greeted with rows and rows of other motorcycle enthusiasts. We had all Pre-registered for the Rally on-line so the check in proved to be quick and painless. With our Rally registration fee of $20, included was our Poker run entry; dinner tickets for Friday night (burgers & dogs with all the fixins, chips, and all non-alcoholic beverages you desired), Saturday night (steak, baked potatoes, baked beans, and dinner rolls, and all non-alcoholic beverages you desired); goodies bags; rally t-shirts and a concert ticket. What a deal!!!!!
Saturday June 24th was a full day of events so we again made an early start. Our hotel included complimentary breakfast each morning so all met in the restaurant around 6am. This is not your expected bagel, fruit and oatmeal. We were given a choice of regular menu items. Again, after fueling our ride ready bellies, 7am was kick stands up for the Poker Run.
Our Poker Run stops were all planned in the mountain destinations around the White Mountains. Stop #1 was Greer, Stop #2 Eager, Stop #3 Alpine, Stop #4 Hannigan Meadow, Stop #5 Big Lake, then back to the Hon-Dah resort to turn in our Poker Hands. Although none of our group won with their Poker hands, we all won in the majestic scenery we had experienced in the over 200 mile ride. Plenty of wild life was seen as well as some of the most picturesque mountain-scape you could image in Arizona.
After our well-deserved steak dinners, we headed over to our evening concert. Opening entertainer was the Edgar Winter band who rocked with his amazing vocals and band. The headliner group was Eric Burdon and the Animals. After a long, fun-filled day we all headed back to our hotel for the night. This rally might not be a big as Sturgis or Daytona but for some summer heat relief and the breath taking scenery you really do get your $$ worth.
