Hualapai Mt. is a nice little ride out from Kingman. Also, there is an annual bike week festival just over in Laughlin, NV.

I don't know as much as I should about the northern part of 'Zona, Kemen, but I lived in Tombstone for 15 years. Kick-ASS riding in the southern half; Highway 80, King's Highway, Lots of mountains and twisties (Texas Canyon out by Wilcox is a GREAT example), TONS of little roads, ghost towns and history. Hope to see some pics of your Kingman rides, and don't forget to go see the big hole in the ground (Grand Canyon) and the City of the Donkeys (Oatman, on the Mother Road, Route 66), stay safe and have a BLAST!
The air tour pilots around here call the canyon "THE DITCH". I would think of "Meteor Crater" as a BIG HOLE! Both great places to ride to from Kingman, AZ. I may be in for a Southwest get together ride too if mine is running alright at the time. I'm going to be off work on Fridays and Saturdays starting in late September. If we start to put together a ride, we should probably post in the Southwest section.

Thanks for all the info I really appreciate it. Looks like we will be making the move in the beginning of September. I will definitely try out all those roads. Thanks again

Born and raised in Arizona, kingman is a pretty good area to be in, lots of quick easy access to everything. I love it out here, I seem to be drawn back here. I live in the mesa/phoenix area, its a little hectic when the snowbirds come in but its pretty much year round riding (except for the few times a yr when it rains or we get Haboobs) but other than that its not to bad. Hope you like the heat too lol
