    TRIUMPHS IN TAOS IS NOW GOING TO BE IN RED RIVER! September 7-9th
    Lets call the rally "Triumphs in Taos at Red River". After many years of hoping the Kachina Lodge would be able to find resources to up their room quality we have come to the conclusion that the rally riders would have a more enjoyable experience in Red River! We may be back at the Kachina Lodge someday, but I'm sure it will be after new owners have brought it up to a higher standard. I do want to thank the wonderful staff at the Kachina Lodge for their work in accommodating us over the last decade!!! Cheryl and the front staff did all they could! Pam and I looked around in Taos, but only found one possible Motel with the appropriate accommodations. It proved to be too small and was sold out already for that weekend due to a "Barn Dance" in town.
    So, after a warm welcome from the new owners of The Alpine lodge, we realized the Alpine Lodge should be great fit for our group! The Lodge is going through a remodel this spring. It all should be done by September.
    Here's some highlights of the rally in Red River:
    1) Motorcycle parking is near your room, motor lodge style.
    2) We will have the fire on Friday & Saturday night, weather permitting, next to the river. Don't call it a creek,
    the Red River folks don't like that! haha
    3) Lots of food choices in Red River. A block away from the lodge is a new brewery, looks classy!
    4) Red River (as we all know) is on the "Enchanted loop", so it should make riding choices easy.
    5) Dates stay the same, September 7-8-9th.
    6) Alpine Lodge # (575) 562-8311 Ask for the 10% Triumph Rally discount.
    7) Address: 417 W Main Street Red River,NM
    8) The Alpine Lodge has lots of room choices. Rates will start at $89.99 (includes the discount) and go up from there.
    9) Weather for the rally should be 70 for the high/ 38 for the low, Chance of rain.
    10) What's # 10, everything seems to be neatly packaged in groups of ten. Oh, Rally cost. Knew I was missing
    something! How about $20 which will cover the shirt, firewood and hopefully Mike on the guitar for
    Saturday night. Let's all just get together at one of the eateries for a group dinner on Saturday night,
    easy. Hopefully everyone will then eat what they want! I'll soon get up pay-pal on my email.

    My guess is that place will be condemned and scraped and something new will be put in its place.

    Sadly, Sara and I will not be able to make it this year, we will be just getting back from a trip and heading out the weekend after on another one. We need some at home time

    Not doing the rally, but can attest to Red River being a cool town. New brewery is top notch, too! Go if you can!
