Hi from Arizona,
My wife and I live in the Phoenix, AZ area. We have a 2007 750 Brute force and a 2005 700 Prairie. During the cooler months we ride local trails in the desert. During hot months, we trailer up to the high country and cruise the forest trails. We're both retired and have only been riding for a couple years. Only regret is that we didn't do this 10 years ago!
