We were just notified of an error on the Moriarty, NM stop.  The meal price was listed as $9.50, but it's really $10.00.  I have uploaded a new version of the document.  Please pass the word.  Thanks...Keith

LAST CALL! Free Mick-O-Pegs highway pegs Trial Test

LAST CALL! Mick-O-Pegs highway pegs '40 to Phoenix' Free Trial.

Just 4 days away from departure and we have less than half of our goal ...
of riders signed up to try Mick-O-Pegs for a day.

With insufficient interest, we may need to stay warm in MI rather than
join the 40 to Phoenix group.

CA1R's Rally in the Valley

On Friday when some of the group will leave for San Diego, JR and I would like to lead anyone who would like to join us to Las Vegas for CA1R's Rally in the Valley.  I have attached their flyer to be distributed through a weekly digest if possible and below is the hotel information.  This would give someone from the east coast the chance to attend a west coast chapter fundraiser and we'd love to have anyone join us.  We don't need a head count but if someone would like to contact us for more information please have them email me at jralkire@cox.net

Free Mick-O-Pegs highway pegs Trial Test

“40 to Phoenix” is providing you the opportunity to try Mick-O-Pegs highway pegs.

Help Mick-O-Pegs decide on whether or not to join the 40 to Phoenix Ride as a vendor. Making the ride from MI to NC to AZ will depend on (1) weather cooperating, and (2) hearing from enough riders who want to try Mick-O-Pegs on the ride.

Why are we doing this? Put simply, you deserve to be as comfortable on your bike as we are on ours. And, we believe that if you try the best Model for your riding preference, you’ll wonder how you’ve been able to live without them.
To reserve your Mick-O-Pegs for a 1-day trial test during the ’40 to Phoenix’, please visit www.ridingiswonderful.com/page49.php

We look forward to meeting you fine folks in March!

Visit Us In Vegas After Phoenix 2013!

Dear I40-to-Phoenix Co-Riders,

After Phoenix this year all I40-to-Phoenix riders are welcome to visit "Rally In The Valley" in Las Vegas March 15 & 16, 2013. CAIR holds one of the best rallys in the West and comes very highly recommended by our sister chapters in the California District and the Southwest Region of GWRRA. Below is our website for more information on this year's CA1R event which promises to be even better with bigger prizes and more vendors. There is still plenty of time left to register and book rooms in Las Vegas. See:   http://www.gwrra-ca1r.org/rallyvalley/index.html

Ride Safe,
Mike Trevour, CA1R
