well there are good rides down there if you decide to take it, We have friends in the area and have ridden some of the roads I just mentioned. desert country, mountains, lots of variety. Jerome is a very biker friendly town, as is Sedona, and the Mingus pass has like 150 turns in 13 miles or something like that, its a beautiful road, narrow thru town, but ok for bikes. We are looking at homes in the area for future retirement. so have started spending some time down there.
good luck deciding what to do.
