It was monsoon season in Tucson, but since we hadn't been able to coordinate schedules for a long time, we decided to ride rain or shine. The overcast sky helped keep the temperatures down all day. We met at the gate at the end of Wilmot, south of Sahurita Rd. Here are Jim, Troy, and Craig near the start of the ride. As you can see, Troy is especially excited to be out. He demonstrated a master's ability in power sliding around corners on the ride to this point. This was the last photo with the bikes still relatively clean... except for Craig whose bike was filthy before we started. When we asked Craig why he hadn't washed it he replied, "Why bother?"
