AZRATPACK was founded in early 200s and R.A.T. means Riders Association of Triumph.  It used to be comprised of only Triumph motorcycles that met at the George & Dragon Pub in Phoenix.  The large club ended up getting split and segregated by politics and to top it off the Triumph Superstore that initially endorsed the club went out of business. 

Today the club is an AMA Chartered club with Victor Castaneda Jr at the helm.  The group is now a social sport / touring club that focuses on both the social aspects and motorcycles is sponsored by GOAZ.  Victor is good people and what conversation I had with him I think he has a level head for this type of role.  The board members are fantastic and have plenty of riding experience to steer a member in the right direction.  The club uses both Facebook, MeetUp, dedicated web page, and GOAZ will sometimes advertise their riders.  If you are in the Phoenix area and are looking for a group that has a social purpose along with some interesting long rides, please check them out.

Dealers I can Deal With

GOAZ Motorcycles


This is where I buy my motorcycles from.  GOAZ Peoria and Scottsdale are very active in hosting and sponsoring riding groups and activities in the Phoenix hub which I think is AWESOME.  I have attended many functions they have hosted that brought many riders together from all sorts of backgrounds.  Their no nonsense , no artificial BS motorcycles sales fees, and will give you fair business handshake on your motorcycle transaction.  If their staff don't know the answer they will find it for you.  There is one located on west side Phoenix in Peoria and one located in Scottsdale.

Adventure Rider Forum - ADVRider

screen-shot-2017-06-20-at-4.18.53-pm.png  Where do I begin.  This is forum that allows inmates (riders) to post questions about traveling around the world (passports, visas, carnet, routes, cross boarders), regional rides, specific bike forums (KTM, BMW, Honda, etc..), fleamarket for swapping and selling gear, and pretty anything motorcycle and even non-motorcycle related.  It's considered a database of a wealth of information, pictures, videos, and routes.  I HIGHLY encourage you to create a username and just start reading.  I have to warn you this webpage will take your so called interest and turn it into an addiction and can lead to hours of obsessing over trips, bikes, and travel.  You've been warned.
