So the Marine Corps has decided that it is in it's best interest to send me to Yuma, AZ. While I can't complain...yet...I don't know jack about the riding down there. Or anything else, for that matter. I've been scouring Craigslist and the realtors for homes too, but if there's any better places/info to be had, I'd appreciate that too.

It is F'ing HOT there but the Colorado River is close and it's a LOT of fun so I suggest taking up boating for a short while. The best place to go used to be Fishers Landing. I saw my first wet t-shirt contest there when I was 18 :D
Riding is boring as heck out there so you will have to go west towards San Diego, south to the mountains in Mexico or east towards Tucson.

Scott is tellin ya the truth. There really isn't alot out there. I hope you have a dirt bike because the imperial sand dunes are close to you. I work at Scottsdale, AZ Ducati. If you ever head up this way you should stop by.

It's a long drive from Virginia, I'm sure I'll find myself more than tempted to. :D

Good thinking about dirt bike riding, it is fantastic out there, Glamis, Blow Sands, Split Mountain are all great areas to camp and ride or dune buggy.

I was there for the first time a few years ago. No twisty roads around, pretty bleak out there. I noticed a lot of sand on the city streets, so you gotta be careful.
