Anybody from the Phoenix area going to cruise to Payson for Friday May 11th? Back a few years our club used to meet at Ft McDowell Casino and cruise together, only I didn't have my truck done then, and now the club has folded. Just curious if anything like that is still happening.

See Tour d'Orange. 450 to 500 cars, early new years morning. They had a band for a couple hours. Then we all cruised about 90 miles on remote route around the county. Ended at a shopping center, had lunch and home early afternoon. Lots of people staring on the way.

I was just looking for group "protection" on the trip to Payson. I'm just close to 500 miles on my truck so was hoping to have some company.

You got a beautiful machine there Monty. Do you have AAA? The premium service will tow a hundred miles, or something like that. That would be a level of back up.

I'm much more worried about "Rocket Roy Racer' in his Camry/Civic that feels the need to show that old truck how fast he is and how his handling will let him cut in front with feet to spare than I am of the truck quitting, and State Farm will tow me if neccesary. I was cut off twice yesterday on the way to and from a show at Falcon field (15 miles total).

Yeah, I went to a VW bug in today. Show/swap/drags, and I agree. Several donkeys did that exact maneuver. Plus the burros that slam on their breaks to adjust speed getting into another lane. Pretty simple to do it smoothly with the gas pedal, but they charge up, lock up the brakes, flash blinker (sometimes) and move over. There are some real weak actors out there for sure. Good luck, I hope you can go and have an enjoyable trip to the show. Be prepared to bring back a trophy, you deserve it!!!
