I know this is the garage thread and don't want to go too far off track...

I for one am contemplating my next move and Arizona is high on the list -- however so are the Smokey's.

Thanks!
Good question,

Yesterday it was 4 below up in Show Low, Az. with lots of snow on the ground. Yesterday here in the Smokey Mountains it was in the hi 60's and went for a ride on my Strada. Arizona was great, just got tired of the long cold winters up where we lived at 6,500 ft elevation. The weather here has a lot of varience, can be cold even the occasional snow, but in a week or so it will be in the 50's, 60's or even in the 70's. I am learning that the east is a little more Big Brother than the west. The roads, people and riding are second to none in this little South East corner of Tennessee, 4 miles from Georgia and 4 miles from North Carolina. I would suggest spending time visiting both areas.
