That's a coincidence. The same thing happened to me two years ago too.

I will be visiting Prescott this December 22-30, 2012. I'm going to be spending Christmas at my inlaws place. This will be my third trip to Prescott. First time Feb 2010 and second time in Nov 2011. While I was there, we took the Hummer and road through some really nice areas that I imagined would be amazing on my DRZ400S. A couple of the areas that we rode through close enough to "home for the time being" was The Prescott National Forest (minutes away) and Sedona riding on red dirt to some ancient Indian dwellings open to the public. I am seriously considering bringing my DRZ400S to do some DS riding while there this year. Im looking for DS companion(s) in the area who share the same passion of exploring and would like to show me some of the best trails and sites for an intermediate level rider from South Texas. Not looking to do any rock climbing or anything too extreme. Just want to have a great adventure on the bike while there. Im plated and road legal. Ive got nothing obnoxious but have done the 3x3 mod, re-jetted and running the Yoshi RS2 full exhaust. Hope that wont be a problem in the parks. Here's a picture of my deezer I will be taking this time around.

This photo was taken when she was younger and cleaned up. She's been shiney side down plenty in the past year. I ain't sceeeered. Just don't want to be climbing sheer cliffs of rocks or blazing through areas I am unfamiliar with just for locals to see the "out of towner" f*&ck himself or his ride up. AZ is more extreme then south Texas I agree. But I'll push myself hoping my new friends will limit my damages and take me under their wing....If not look for me in late December. My rear tire tread looks like this XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

I also ride a DRZ, and the routes rattlecan took us on were great; nothing extreme at all, but a number of the trails have LOTS of loose rocks.. stand up, keep on the gas and power through, and you'll be fine

we rode a moderate pace, and my DRZ was absolutely up to the task- rattlecan will NOT steer you wrong. Showing an out of towner your riding area is a privilege and Bob did it right. Started on some easy trails, then stopped to make sure we were ok with the pace and the terrain... we said, hell yeah, let's go... and we did;

When I show out of towners my areas, I always start out really easy, and gradually ramp up the trails until they say "that's enough" (Or I say it; "that trail is really hard, ride that... I'll meet you on the other end")
