Weekly Update


Greetings Riders,


This will be a short editorial this week as I am trying to take a few days off, step away from the computer a little bit and get recharged for the big part of the riding season in Arizona which tends to be the first 6 months of the year. There are several things that I am working on for the first quarter of 2007 including several new bike nights and weekends all over the valley, some new events and some old. If things line up right with my meeting next week, and in light of additional troops being sent to the Middle East, I might be doing the Hearts to Heroes event again in April. The ending location has never been done with motorcycles and could be very exciting.


Since you are not hearing much from me this week, I would like to hear from you! There are several upgrades and changes that will be made to the site over the next month. But I would like to hear from you as to what you would like to see on the site, what subjects you might like me to write about, new sections on the site, poll subject ideas or whatever constructive feedback you would like to give me. There are no right or wrong suggestions, I would just like to get an idea of ways to improve the site and accommodate more of your interests. Let me hear from you. Email your comments to and they will be taken into consideration. If you don't currently get the Weekly Newsletter at your own email address and would like to sign up, Click Here.


And finally, I would sincerely like to thank everyone who uses as your primary resource for motorcycling rides and events. Your incredible loyalty and support of the site is humbling and is greatly appreciated. I look forward to bringing you many fun events and great riding experiences over the next year.


I wish everyone Safe Riding and Blessings for a great 2007. May you make many new deposits into your memory bank of life as you ride this year.



Barry and Mrs. C.
