looks like a beautiful place to ride!
I just moved here last year form Bethlehem, Pa. Everywhere you go on the outskirts of Phoenix there are areas to ride. I Pa we had a nice place by the river but it was narrow and only good for dirt bikes. Plus here in Az you can ride on the road if you have aa plate, mirror and horn. The cops don't harrass you like the do in Pa.

Be careful about assuming the cops won't harrass you there. There's a reason the valley is filled with prisons. I know that you're only referring to ATVing, but I couldn't let that go by without saying anything. Watch your Ps and Qs if you want to stay on their good side. Sorry, I digress.

Hey, I like the horn. The one on my quad is yellow... Couldn't find a pink one. What can I say, I'm weird and have the marbles to ride with something silly like that. Try this one... When you come up behind someone on the trail and they don't know you're back there... honk the horn. They'll go "WTF" and look back and you'll get a safe pass. :D

really that sounds like fun! Its one of the reasons I like Hatfield that and the people of WV are so nice! so do you have a horn?
No horn or mirrors but I don't ride much on the street. Too hard on the tires. It's usually maybe a one minute hop on the development street then another two on a main road. The Maricopa Sherriffs do patrol out there and I have no doubt that they can get aggressive. I'll keep my mouth shut and do what is asked. Being 50 I have no desire to argue with the law.

Don't ever forget Dan Lovelace. He was a Chandler cop who shot a woman in the back of the head and killed her for filling a fraudulent prescription. Best thing to do when you see a cop there is look away and remember where your gun is. I wouldn't hesitate to defend myself against those thugs down there.

Having lived in AZ, I can promise you it's not the world that's crazy. It's Phoenix and its burbs. It's one seriously wild ass town, as is evident by the Dan Lovelace story.

I don't know how long ago you lived here but having been around a lot of the USA Phoenix is mild. The entire downtown goes dead at 7PM unless there's a game or event. I live in Surprise and the cops are actually very friendly vs the nastiness and attitudes I've seen elswhere. The Sherriffs may be different but I haven't had any trouble with them either. The politics here are often childish and petty at the state level but they are getting some control over the illegals although some of the laws are of questionable constitutionality.

I should just keep my mouth shut because there's no way everyone has had the awful experiences I've had with crooks and cops in such a small number of visits. I'm clearly biased. rodz by riz, you don't know Aaron "Hillbilly" Yates do you?

Man, that's messed up. I know them all, too. Small world. Aaron's up in Flagstaff and got a kid, so I've heard. I've not seen him in years, but a mutual friend in Tuscon told me.

Sorry if I offended you guys about the cops. I've been roughed up a couple of times by the cops out there, which made life much more challenging than it already was, when I actually never did anything wrong. I definitely hold a grudge. There's too much judge, jury, and executioner going on with the cops these days. Peace.
