SR 87 Route

At 10am we will leave Desert Wind Harley Davidson and travel north on Country Club Dr (SR87) for approximately 18 miles to Chevron Gas Station, 10180 N. Fort McDowell Rd. (SR 87 and Ft. McDowell Road). We have a 15-minute break at this location and allow riders to re-group.

We will leave the Chevron Station and proceed north on State Route 87 to Sunflower (34 miles), make a U-turn through median and slow roll past an Arizona DPS Trooper’s monument (approximately Mile Post 218). Please note we will ride in the right lane as much as possible; however, we will switch to left lane at approximately milepost 216. We will make a U-turn in the median and the Road Captain may stop at the brake check area just south of Sunflower to re-group.

We will continue south on 87 to milepost 195 and will stop for memorial ceremonies for fallen Arizona DPS fallen Troopers (approximately 15 to 20 minutes). After the conclusion of the ceremonies, we will continue south on SR 87 to Shea Boulevard. We will turn right on Shea Boulevard and proceed west to J&P Cycle, 8606 E. Shea Blvd. (just west of SR 101 and Shea) We will have an approximate 15-minute break at J&P.

After leaving J&P, we will travel east on Shea to SR 101 Loop to the Thomas Road exit. We will turn right on to westbound Thomas Road for a stop at the Scottsdale Police Department headquarters, 8401 E. Indian School Road.

After leaving the Police Department, we will travel to the Mesa Community College where we will meet riders from other routes. We will ride together to Desert Wind Harley-Davidson for the final memorial ceremony, recognizing of our veterans, barbecue festivities, and final raffle drawing.

If you purchased merchandise or raffle tickets online and have not received those items prior to November 11th, your merchandise will be at the barbecue and please fill out the raffle tickets with your name and phone number prior to the final drawing.
