Cars, trucks, and busses! We probably saw more traffic today than cumulative on the trip! Phoenix is one HUGE metropolitan area...especially when traversing on a motorcycle.
We took the scenic route to Flagstaff via Prescott and Sedona, following Route 89A most of the way. One exception was just north of Cottonwood, we diverted onto Cornville Road so that we could approach Sedona from the south on AZ-179. The roads in/out of Prescott are full of twisties and vista views and the town is a beautiful oasis in the high desert. We were able to meet my brother and his wife for lunch at a great Thai restaurant in historic downtown Prescott. Both Prescott and Sedona are getaway places for the fine citizens of Phoenix. 89A from Sedona to Flagstaff carves it’s way through the rock canyon, following the river’s every turn.
Beautiful roads today, but these are the only pics I captured - historic downtown Prescott, the road out of Prescott, and one of my bride and me. I haven’t seen pics from the other bike yet.

With 45+ years of riding experience, the team has developed a library of our favorite rides in Texas and points beyond. We call them our Twisted Rides. We thought it might be a good idea to share that experience and encourage you to do the same!
We partnered with MyRoute-app, a leading provider of route planning tools, to create and share the routes. Using the map below, Users are able to view and download the routes without registering with MyRoute-app. If you would like the ability to open/edit/save the routes, the User will be prompted to register with MyRoute-app and offered two subscription levels - Basic (free) and Gold (fee dependent on subscription term and payment method). Being an avid ride planner, I prefer the Gold level for the additional features and I also believe in supporting independent software developers who invest their time and talents to create useful applications for the motorcycle industry. As a Twisted Rides referral, you receive an extended evaluation period and special pricing if you choose the Gold level - so give it a shot!
