You better believe it! Phoenix in the winter months is quite possibly the most dangerous driving in America. I'm happy to be north of Phoenix's busy areas.
So far, this bike, weight and all, is so much easier to maneuver slowly than my Sherpa. I giggle every time I ride it.
I imagine just about everyone has his or her favorite "worst drivers" city. Though I don't live there, my vote would be Boston, although Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, Atlanta, Phoenix, Chicago, Miami, Birmingham, and (insert your favorite here) are also prime candidates.
Phoenix in the winter months? Ah yes, that's probably because it's populated by elderly people from small, low-density traffic towns in the upper mid-west, known lovingly as snow birds, aka "near-deads". Oh, don't become offended folks. Though not from the upper mid-west, I'm nearing that stage of life much to my dismay.
My winter home is in a "retirement community" where my Two Brothers exhaust is not
looked upon very kindly. I'm sensitive to the fact that a few good throttle blips might cause a rash of heart attacks.
Ride as if you're invisible and, if possible, mount a pair of Klingon disruptors just to be safe. Though hard to come by,they leave no troublesome rubble I'm told.
