Dayum!! I wish I had my bike!!!

I am sitting in a hotel in Hillsboro, TX and it is absolutely perfect riding weather. I am in Texas for the next 2 weeks for work and this weather is driving me crazy!!! It was 76 and sunny today when I landed in DFW. I left Michigan it was 20 degrees with 3 inches of fresh snow on the ground this morning.

Like I said, Texas for 2 weeks for work and the day after I fly home my wife, daughter and I fly out to Arizona for a 10 day vacation. Hopefully by the time I get back, winter will be over. I have to move man, winter sucks......the more time I spend in the south, the more I want to permanently get the hell out of the great white north.......rant over. :headshake

How far away from that area is Mesa? I can't keep up on a fat boy but it would be cool to ride some good twisties.

its about a hour and half north from tucson. if you get a chance. take the bike or the family and go up MT. lemmon in tucson. there a road that goes north from tucson to hayden. from hayden to supeoer is a good ride.

Mostly Cali and Vegas, but I bookmarked the site. It's fairly reasonable and if I ever make it to so cal, I am all over that.
