Bikers are Good People

by Tom O’Hare

    Appearances are not always what they seem to be. A case in point was the 1st of March when five Harley Davidson Motorcycle riders came into Rocky Point, some with long hair flying, roaring engines and dressed in their leathers.
    Your first impression could run from A to Z. In reality they were five adventurous Canadians visiting Puerto Peñasco for the first time from Calgary, Alberta.

    Since 1991 this group has vacationed together by loading up their Harley’s and heading for a warm climate. They avoid the Interstate Highways whenever possible and they leave with no set agenda. This year they trucked their bikes to Mesquite., Nevada where they stored their bike trailers, and averaging 250 to 300 miles per day, arrived in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. While visiting Lake Havasu the group met “Red,” a local pub owner and frequent Rocky Point visitor. The group intended to visit Ajo, Arizona and then go on to Texas but after being convinced by Red what a great place Rocky Point was they decided to make the trip south.
    The following are quotes about their stay in Rocky Point. Bruce Spears a.k.a. “Sleepy” (concrete contractor), “I’m blown out of the water, I met two people from Canada that I did work for and have not seen for 13 years. (Greg and Mitzi, residents of Puerto Peñasco). Marv Drake (retired), “I’m overwhelmed by our acceptance.” Tom Scully (irrigation contractor), “A great experience.” Ron Alprecht (CPA), “The hospitality is indescribable.” Darrel Myroniuk (Logic Safety Systems), “The people are fantastic.”
    All the men want to thank “Red” for steering them to Rocky Point and they are looking forward to an extended stay next year in 2002.
    If you are ever in Lake Havasu City stop by and say hi to Red at Red’s Tavern on Swanson.
