frontpage350road Weekly Update
Greetings Riders,
Well, it looks like my intentions turned out to be bigger than my abilities this week. My goal was to bring you the details of our ride to Telluride, the Gateway Auto Museum and Durango this week. But with over 600 photos to go through, many new events to be posted to the web site and 3 bike nights starting up in the next week including the Westgate Bike Night presented by Arrowhead Harley and Ridenow Powersports this Thursday, Mixteca Mexican Friday Bike Night this Friday and Mad Dog Saloon on Tuesday, I just ran out of time for the ride editorial. Since I am not one to do anything half way, I have decided to put that off till next week to give it the time and effort that these new ride nuggets deserve. Hopefully it will be worth the wait.
Until I can get this story done for next week, here are 12 awesome pictures that you can enjoy in the meantime. Click Here to View. Check out the Facebook for new photo posts and click “Like” to get future updates.
But for now I am wrapping up the finishing touches to kick off the bike night at Westgate this Thursday. It is hard to believe that we will be completing our 4th year of this bike night. It has been fun to watch it grow over the years and to be a part of providing a fun and enjoyable place for riders to go on Thursday nights to enjoy live music, good fun and a place to catch up with your riding buddies. As you probably know, there will be 10 nights this season from September 13th – November 15th. We will have special guests throughout the season. This week we are featuring the works of Bourget’s Bike Works as well as previewing their new Rogue Bikes line in conjunction with Sinister Industries. Live Band this week is crowd favorite “Kung Fu Grip”. Look forward to seeing you there. My buddy Scott Pasmore of TV 3 did a nice spot on Bike Night this morning. Click Here to View.
For those on the West side I am starting a Friday Bike Night this week at Mixteca Mexican located at 67th and Bell Rd. Live Music, motorcycle parking, outdoor patio and grill, food and drink specials. Stop by to help us kick it off Friday, September 14th 6-10 PM. See details below.
And Tuesday night September 18th Mad Dog Saloon will be starting bike night again for the season with Raffle Prizes, Retro Pin-Up Models and a 50/50 raffle to benefit Bikers Against Diabetes. Food and drink specials including $1.00 Tacos. See details below.

12th Annual Thunder Valley Rally sponsored by: Cliff Castle Casino Hotel, & the City of Cottonwood. Over $4,000 in prize money for the Poker Run, and over $2,000 for the KA Cycles Bike Show (Call KA Cycles for all your cycle needs @ 928.634.1364) Thank You: Grand Canyon Harley Davidson, Pepsi, Bud. Located in North Central Arizona the Verde Valley is encompassed by beauty with the Red Rocks of Sedona to the Northeast, Sycamore Canyon to the North, the Black Hills and Mingus Mountain to the Southwest and the Mogollon Rim to the Southeast.
Thunder Valley Rally was started in 2000 and was the brainchild of the former Cliff Castle Casino Hotel Team Member, Mike Spurgeon. From relatively humble beginnings 11 years ago to an event that has grown to be one of the Southwest’s premiere motorcycle gatherings. In 2011, the City of Cottonwood joined forces with Cliff Castle Casino Hotel by giving the event a new home OLD TOWN COTTONWOOD. Thunder Valley Rally is sure to bring motorcycle enthusiasts from all over the state of Arizona, Utah, California, Nevada and Colorado. Bikers and non-bikers alike are sure to be entertained. The three day Thunder Valley Rally will begin Friday afternoon with the Barley and Grapes Ride beginning in Old Town Cottonwood, making their way to Jerome and back down through the wine country of Page Springs, and of course making stops along the way for a bit of tasting. The run will end by returning to Old Town Cottonwood so you can enjoy live music on the street, vendors and some Old Town charm.
Saturday will offer the Thunder Valley Rally Poker Run, beginning in Old Town Cottonwood at 10:00 A.M. and riding up the Oak Creek Canyon along 89A into Flagstaff and back down Lake Mary Road near Mormon Lake and finishing headed Northwest on State Route 260 back to Cottonwood. At the end of the Poker Run riders and non-riders will be able to enjoy live music, vendors, demo-rides, and much more in Old Town. Stay tuned for more events to come!
