Ride to Big Bear To
Try and Stay Cool!
Great day today,28 people showed up
to share a wonderful day of riding.
I really didn't have any route
planned for this ride but fortunately Gerry from Arrowhead came with
us today and did a great job showing us the way around. He took us
on roads I have never been on before which is the way I like it. I
love exploring new roads. A big Thank you to Gerry for leading the
It was quite a crowd meeting at
Chaparral this morning. 18 bikes and riders all showed up on time
and ready to ride. The weather couldn't have been better. By the
time it was starting to get hot we were all ready up in the
mountains. Gerry took us around Lake Gregory and Arrowhead. With a
nice stop over looking Arrowhead. Then a quick potty break in the
Village and we were on our way again. From there we made our way to
Big Bear with a nice cruise around the lake.
We arrived at Sizzler right on
time and they took care to seat us all together as much as possible.
Donna did a nice job making all the women welcome and gave away some
very nice prizes just for the ladies. None of the ladies went home
empty handed. A big Thank you to Donna for making it nice for them.
After Donna gave away her prizes we started on the 50/50 prizes and
raffle. Our friends from Brazil, Dolor and Angela donated three
shirts that his company makes. I also gave away a knife, clock, sign
and pant clips. The big 50/50 winner was Shelly and Dennis. It was
there first ride with us and I'm sure they had a good time. They
brought their friends Doug and Lori on their 92 Goldwing. It was
nice to have them along. Also new for the club were Luis on his
beautiful Rune and Tam on his custom standard. Also it was great to
see Vicki and Phil riding again. It had been about a year since we
saw Vicki. Phil invited his friend Mike to join us as well.
After Lunch we all made our way
home I didn't get home until almost 7:00.
Thanks to everyone for coming out
and hope to see you all on the next ride. It will be to the San
Diego Moto Expo and the Del Mar fair grounds on September 27th.
