Arizona Motorcycle Roads and Trips

As strange as this sounds, naming Arizona (AZ) the Grand Canyon State sells the state short as the state has so much more to offer visitors than access to this world famous "natural wonder of the world." The state will offer motorcycle riders one of the most diverse scenery repertoires in all of America featuring canyons, lush forests, cactus laden deserts, alpine mountain scenery and a collection of pristine lakes, rivers and reservoirs. Favorite destinations for motorcycle rides are Sedona, Flagstaff, Tucson, Phoenix and of course the Grand Canyon.
