My wife and I are planning to trip to AZ for our 30th anniversary at the end of Sept. We are planning on spending Friday night in Phoenix with some friends, but we have made arrangements to rent a 1200GS all day Saturday and Sunday. We have to return the bike by 6:00 pm Sunday evening. We thought about a trip to to the Grand Canyon, but have heard that it is not a great motorcycle destination because of all the cars. Can anyone out there from the AZ area suggest a great 2 day route starting and ending in Phoenix? We are not afraid to spend long days in the saddle.
