New Concour Owner from Eastern Arizona
« on: February 22, 2018, 05:05:32 pm »
Hello All
I am located in  Eastern Arizona.  Want to thank you all for the great information on this site.  Has really helped in researching my newest bike.   Not new to motorcycles, over the years have owned many and several types.  For last few years I have been riding a 2007 Yamaha Road Star and now have added a 2011 Kawasaki Concours 14.  Great machine and a whole lot of fun. 
Moved here in 2012 from Colorado (great place to ride too)   Work in Morenci Copper mine as an electrical supervisor. Many good places to ride here in Arizona.  Latest ride was the Alpine Loop (Devils Highway 666)  Can't wait to do it in the Concours!

We're planning on having a Devil's Highway rally sometime this year. We do have a few 'Ride to Eat' get togethers throughout the year. I'm in Tucson so summertime we head north. A lot of fun people to ride with. A couple of them cause me to get into trouble.  >:D Dan

Too late. Seen it! Welcome in Sir! Mark Hartman your ever grateful Area Director out of Henderson NV. Dan (Charby) is your AZ Assistant Area Director. A very Good Dude in a Very loose mood. And don't you believe him. He may not be an instigator but is a willing participant  :)) :)) We are looking at several things for the SW this year including a So Cal Event and the 666. On the Calendar now is the NW Bun Cooler which is a great event and well worth the ride up (plus for you you can jam the Prescott area). We also have the National coming up in Kerrville TX in June. For all that is Connie it is the place to be. You are positioned well for in and out routes there. If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions please do not hesitate to let myself or Dan know. It is why we are so highly compensated  :) :beerchug:

Charby/Old Man. 
Thank you for great info, I will pursue those rides.  Not totally familiar with forum yet, where do I go to get specifics on the rides? 
 I am ok with “trouble” lol !    I am getting into the old man category but still “25” in my heart.
Love everything outdoors including riding!
Thanks again
