I lived there for 25 of my 29 years. I now live in LA and am never looking back... If you are old and republican, by all means, move there and stay put. But if you are younger and have dreams, stay away, Phoenix is an energy stealer, it will suck you dry (like the heat -haw haw). The state and city are run by retards with no vision, people like Joe Arpaio, Phil gordon, etc... If you do move there, and I suggest you don't, I'll help you with the hotspots and all the best places to live and eat, there are a few... Not to mention 3 or four bikers die a week there, no fun at all... Plus side you will be among a select few with nice vintage machines. Phoenix is all about the weekend warrior type, lots of custom chrome douche sleds here.
I figured that summer months would be a little hot - but riding 10 to 11 months a year sound pretty appealing. I could use the hot months for bike rebuild time in an air conditioned garage - sort of what I do here for winter months. Please list the hot spots and what areas to look for homes.
As a side note - Mileage to the beaches in Cal is about 350 miles - to me that sounds like a nice bike run.
