I met up with Glen, Jeremy, Steve, Necro23 at 6:00 at Joe's Farm Grill in Gilbert, AZ and we proceed to roll north to the Superstition Highway (US 60). From There we rolled through Apache Junction to the tie into Apache Trail (US 88) for the schweet, schweet curviness out to Canyon Lake. Par for the course, we had followed a boat slowly being hauled to the lake on our trip out to the lake, but our return home was smooth going.
The intention was to get a little breakfast at the Lakeside Restaurant and Cantina, but we showed about about 20 minutes before they opened (8:00 on Saturdays), so we jumped on our machines and cruised up the road to dink around Tortilla Flats to kill some time. We took some pics and shot some vid, then proceed back to the restaurant for some sustenance.

Super fun little excursion.

Sorry Jeremy, I didn't realized I dropped Steve's name in a second time instead of yours in the credits.
