Best Time to Visit PHX Area?

So, I had a great time in Feb on my rental Street Glide. Visited Bisbee. I was a wee bit chilly! Neat town though. Stayed at The Copper Queen for a night. Met some really nice Harley folks at the Hideaway Grill in Cave Creek. These are really friendly folk, and although I was wearing nothing "Harley" they made me very welcome. Wanted to do Sedona, but the roads were covered with snow. Not the Street Glide's forte.
So, I'm planning to head back. Maybe the end of October for a week. Again in Feb, and a final time (to retrieve my bike if I take it) in April. I fly cheap.
So, some advice from the friendly folks who live there....should I take my 650 Bandit, DR650, or rent again? Figure I'd save money taking my own bike down, if i could find a cheap place to store it, over renting. However, I really enjoyed the Glide. I get to wear Harley garb don't you know! And I can do this for less than the payments on a new Glide of my own.

Depends on what you want to see while you are here. There are great road trips as you've seen and even better off road destinations. Pick your weapon and you won't be disappointed with the options.

Best time of year is now, still reasonably cool weather in the desert areas and not too cold in the higher elevations.

By the end of May it's hot in Phoenix but nice up in Northern AZ.
