Arizona has a lot to offer!  It is the 48th State of the Union, however, it's the sixth in size.  With 113,998 square miles from border to border and most of it has no population.  The State is 400 miles long and 310 miles wide and contains 22.3 million acres of Deserts, Mountains, Trees and great places to ride.  One of the oldest settlements in the United States is Orabi located about 90 miles northeast of Flagstaff which has been occupied since 500 A.D.  There are also a lot of Ghost Towns in Arizona that are great to visit while touring the state and best enjoyed from the seat of a Street Eagle Motorcycle.

 

The highest elevation is 12,634 feet at Mount Humphries Peak near Flagstaff and the lowest is at 70 feet above sea level on the Colorado River that flows through the base of the Parker Dam.  Rain Fall is seven (7) inches a year in the Desert Areas and the highest recorded temp was 128 degrees Fahrenheit in Lake Havasu back in June of 1994.
