1st KTM Ride

Saturday, October 20th: After dropping both girls off at the grandparents house, we set out to Oracle, AZ. Our first task was to find breakfast. Which brought us to a Greek restaurant in Florence, AZ. Florence is mostly known for the prison. We each had omelettes, they could have been better, a bit burnt. Then, back on the bike to Triangle L Ranch Bed and Breakfast http://www.trianglelranch.com/ We arrived at noon and was greeted by the staff and shown our room. The owner stated she would not be able to serve breakfast, due to an art show on Sunday. That was fine with us, we are usually up too early and waiting around for breakfast anyway. We stayed in the Trowbridge Suite. The building was an adobe house built in the 1880's. We loved how room was so rustic. We were allowed to roam the property and view the different types of art that were displayed throughout. We spent a brief time exploring, before we realized our movie would be starting in 45 minutes. We got back on the bike and rode into Tucson, in time to catch the movie 3:10 to Yuma. It was the perfect movie, considering we were in the southwest! After the movie we went to Sauce for pizza and salad. Most of the enjoyment came from people watching. Once dinner was finished we walked next door for the best gelato I have ever eaten! Then we rode back in the dark to the inn. Early to bed, there was no TV to watch.

Sunday, October 21st: Up with the sun, to do more exploring of the property. We were greeted by one of the dogs, visited the chicken coop, with the unfriendly goose. The mule wanted lots of love, before being chased off by the 2 horses. We found the stone lined path with interesting art on display. After awhile we started getting hungary for breakfast and packed up for our ride home. The ride home took us through the town of Coolidge. As we drove through the small town we saw a large gathering of other bikes and we decided that was the perfect place to eat. (As you can see in the pictures, our bike is a bit different than most.) After a great breakfast and more people watching we headed back to the grandparents house for get the girls. Overall we rode 200 miles and would do it again next weekend. Of course my butt needs a little time to recover.

I'm sure I knew about this blog before, but am just re-discovering it! That's what so good about getting older and losing your memory - there's always something new!!!

What a fun trip! Love the art, especially the human art!!
