Yes woman everywhere. Be sure to hit up yarnell prescott and sedona. Great riding, highway 89 through wickenburg then to yarnell to prescott to flagstaff is where it is it! Just be careful in yarnell the fuzz is always around. Don't let the temperature fool you in phoenix. Flagstaff this time of year has snow. We forgot that one time and it was lovely getting snowed on after a hour and half ride in 70 degree weather. If you are into slummin haha hit up the salt river boobies and beer and floating down a river. The water is nasty but its all an experience

Awesome! Thanks for the advice and input! There is a river in Wisconsin called Apple River; sounds identical! Lots of beer, boobies and relaxing on the river :mrgreen: haha..

Yeah, I have a friend who lives in Flagstaff and she said they've got some snow right now. Crazy how its only 2 hours away and the temperature difference is that extreme. It's like 11 degrees here in Iowa right now!

Yea it is def weird. I do miss it out there. I was pissed when the air force sent me there being a northeastern guy. But they I was pissed when the AF moved me out of there. You will enjoy yourself. There are alot of traffic cameras even on the highways so be wary of them. If you have never been to cali I highly recommend san diego also. Its like 5 1/2 to 6 hours away and one of the coolest places I went to while I was out there.

Seems like most of the guys on that forum are decent. DucatiBrandon on this site is also in the Phoenix area. I think there are a few others. We have several nice tracks relatively close as well.

Where you originally from? My roommate just got out of the AF after 9 yrs.. Went to the AF Academy.. He's originally Delaware. Were you a pilot, or?

I was wondering about the traffic cameras, but I heard freeway pace is like ~100mph? Definitely looking forward to the location. San Diego will be one of the first moto trips I make when it warms up a bit! :thumbsup:

Never been on a track! Have always wanted to, but there really aren't any close to where I've been residing the past several years. Guess I'm gonna get the chance to now! I can hang with the best of them here is good ol' Iowa, but AZ will be a different story.. :notworthy:wave:

I am from upstate NY. No not a pilot. I am a Crew Chief on F-16's. When I was leaving they were putting up the free way traffic cameras and I think they will still snap you for like 80. I think they were just on the 101 I could be mistaken on that though.

I thought I was fast until a kid on a 125 made me look silly at the track. Now I just hope to make it out without any broken body parts.
