There are a several decent roads in AZ. Most require a bit of a drive to get to however.

1. Hwy 89 from Yarnell to Prescott.
2. Alt 89 from Prescott to Jerome.
3. Parts of Hwy 87 from Mesa to Payson.
4. Hwy 60 from Globe to Show Low.
5. Tortilla Flatts hwy 88 east of Apache Junction.
6. Mount Lemon in Tucson.
7. Kitt Peak Observatory east of Tucson.
8. Mount Graham south of Safford.
9. Hwy 191 from Clifton to Alpine
10. Hwy 180 in New Mexico and Hwy 78, completes the 230+mile loop from Clifton.

1-6 are normally patrolled with very little chance of getting out of a ticket.
7-10 are very seldom patrolled with 9 being the best road and 10 the second.

Hangouts? Mill Ave in Tempe, ASU is right next to it. The Pavillions in Scottsdale on Saturday nights. I can't remember the cross streets.

TeamAZ is the better of the two trackday outfits here locally. www.asmaracing.com is most technical track and cheapest to run.

Philbie is always looking for new riders to go to Arroyo Seco with him.

Here's some more:

1. Lake Mary road from Flagstaff to Payson (can't remember the HWY #).
2. 89A from Flagstaff to Sedona (its hard to not get stuck in traffic, Patrolled).
3. Arizona Snowbowl Road (rarely patrolled, just watch out for the cinders on the road!)

+1 on Bagdad. Saw a cop once out of who knows how many times I have been there. When I was living in Kingman, I would come south on 93 to wherever it was to break off towards Bagdad. Bagdad to Prescott via Skull Valley is fun. Now that I am in Phoeninx, it's Wickenburg to Bagdad then Bagdad back to 89 and up to Prescott is fun too.

Just sucks because it takes an hour and a half just to get to the starting point.

191 and CLIR (Tortilla Flat) are twisty heaven.

261 a little west of Eager off the 260 is another good road. It's patroled, but they don't seem to care what you do as long as you don't crash. :)

And Arroyo puts any of the tracks (namely Firebird) Team AZ runs events at to shame.

That's just scary. LOL!

A fun one that's not too far out of PHX is Bartlett Lake Road. Take Carefree Road out to the east of Carefree about 3-4 miles turn south on Bartlett Lake Rd... Enjoy the twisties.

That's pretty well patrolled, though. Be careful!
I found that out on my Goldwing! I passed a Ranger/Cop doing about 80 and he didn't come after me. I thought fer sher I was toast! I got away with murder on that bike... cuz' it just LOOKS slow.

A few of us are talking about taking the bikes out and doing the 191 route. This should be good. 4 race bikes hauling ass on a 45 mile run in the mountains. Hopefully Justin has that crashing thing out of his system.

The sad thing is that you're more likely to see more deer and cows than cars. Not the most traveled road in the area.
