Mmmm love the 996. Dont sell it! I like south mountain but it's like 1st and 2nd gear only.. almost takes the fun out of the ride. The view is nice though. Cave creek rd one of my favorites going to Bartlett lake. 2am both lanes, road all to yourself. Same with Mt lemon.

All my riding is out in Prescott/Jerome or Globe area day trips. I'm minutes away South Mountain road to the top & never ridden it on the bikes. First time I drove up in the car with family I thought it would be punishment on my bikes. I did Tortilla Flats on my SS before they repaved it. I slept on the repaving as my trip beat the hell out of me & I had no interest on returning.:D

Yeah south mountain is not a fun road. It's too slow and tight. I didnt know they repaved Tortilla Flat. I like the ride to Jerome. Anywhere north is good riding really. Sonoita and Patagonia Is really good riding too. Have you been to Bisbee? That's a cool little town.

Yeah that sounds really fun! Going up Highway 1 on a motorcycle is a must if you haven't been before.

Welcome! I’m originally from AZ, down in Tucson. I know it might be a ride but On Any Moto down there is the MV dealer and they are a great bunch of guys. Good luck with the hunt!

Thank you everyone for the warm welcome and leads. Unfortunately I have decided to no longer actively pursue another motorcycle at this time. I have been dealing with serious heath conditions and have not been able to enjoy riding for a few years. I am determined to ride this year and have been working to get fit to ride and going to make that happen safely.
With the Purchase of a MV, if the right one comes along I may pull the trigger. With purchasing new, Im really digging the 2021 with updated valve guides and TFT dash. Since I can't ride now anyway, I'll have to view you all's art here vs somewhere in my house- I'm out of garage space too.
I'll still be in the community and will do what I can to add positivity.
Also, none of the super sorry posts- I've had my fair share and chucking that to the wind & working on riding again:geek:🏍.

Ride safe

When your ready and want to go exploring MV or Duc I got some cool roads I keep under wraps so definitly worth getting back into riding shape for! New MVs are really nice. Definitly cant go wrong with all the positive improvements they are striving for.

Not Tucson proper but the surrounding area.

You said you used to live there right?

Well everybody, I'm officially an MV Agusta owner!
The right dragster came along an I could not resist!
2016 red/white RR color scheme I originally wanted with 2000 miles.
Fingers crossed its a good one.
Picked up by my shipper today & should be in my garage in a few weeks.

That's beautiful! Your patience paid off! So did you end up having to sell your 996 then?
