If I were looking for a house where I could ride right out my door where would I look?Somewhere I could ride year round with no snow I need warm weather year round.

Take in consideration I have kids so a decent school district is a must.

Come out to AZ. If you're looking for a Real Estate Agent, look no further:thumbsup:

Riding all year round regardless of the heat. You just have to condition yourself to wake up earlier. Cheers!!

fountain hills area, a lot of local pros live there, they ride form their garage. look on google maps for the pima rd and dynamite intersection.

also theres sycamore, theres some houses popping up just south of it off hw 87

or if you want rocky jeep roads you could move to gold canyon, im a 10 minute drive from riding, i live a mile or 2 in from goldcanyon

you would want to be road legal, which isnt hard to do to any bike here

anywhere in the valley (gilbert, mesa, phoenix, aj, scottsdale etc etc) are no more than 45 minutes from riding

If you don't want to be in the Phoenix area, the Tucson area has plenty of great riding within an hour drive. There are at least five riding areas to choose from.

Hell you get even get your gas bill covered for the day, just pickup some illegals/drugs down at the border and haul 'em north! :smirk:

I joke a bit, but it CAN be interesting down by the border. Of course I'm up north and the snow here wouldn't be what you want. Well at least most winters when it actually snows...

In the summer time when it gets too hot down in the dez lots of riders head up here to Flagstaff to ride some of the sweet ST we have. Also good riding in Prescott area and such. I've only ridden down in the AZ desert once at that was at MM4. Pretty fun stuff. Wide variety of riding. I typically head north to Moab when it is too snowy here to ride.

Very true. It's kind of funny how a lot of guys I know that are in Phoenix didn't know there is good riding here in Tucson. Tucson has always been underestimated. So many riding areas here.

Phoenix for 9 months and then north a few miles to the mountains for 3 months. I'm a snowbird and spend winters in Mesa but I have local friends who are residents of various Phoenix metro communities.

Most areas in metro Phoenix have riding within a short drive. Phoenix metro has a great freeway system that provides easy travel (in spite of local whining about congestion). If you are from the east coast welcome to SW sprawl, very few buildings are more than 2 stories in height, I have an unobstructed view for 20+ miles from my 1 story roof.

Riding from your house is available in some areas of north Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Rio Verde, and Fountain Hills. Plates are required to ride on state land but also allow riding on secondary roads. QC is an agriculture community that is in transition to a suburb.

Phoenix metro has more sunshine than Miami Beach, you'll like it. But summers suck unless you like to do things in the cool of night, maybe that is why all of the play fields have night lighting.

Access to the riding on BLM, NFS, and Indian Reservation land is easier from areas north of QC such as Mesa, Fountain Hills, and Scottsdale. Wickenburg (further NW) and Anthem (north on I-17) also have riding.

I've been told that Gilbert has one of the best school districts in the area, don't know about Scottsdale and Fountain Hills but I would expect good schools based on their demograhics. Based on demographics I would avoid Phoenix.
