The brand is Motoboss. Apparently Joe Rocket makes Motoboss. This is the same thing as the Phoenix 3.0 Jacket. I got this one over the Joe Rocket because I thought it felt more comfortable, the removable liner seems thicker, and I think there in an extra pocket. Oh, and it was $40 cheaper than the Joe Rocket.
Well, since my Bike has been in the shop, I havent had much experience riding in AZ. However, I know when we use to go on weekend cruises in the prelude, Cave Creek AZ was a great spot to go. Beautiful scenery and there is a small mountain right there with plenty of twisties if I recall. However, the HOG's go there a lot too. Its been a while since Ive been up there but I remember it being beautiful.
Recently we went up North to payson from Phoenix and the ride up there through the mountains is Awesome! plenty of twisties and elevation changes. Just be careful on the weekends with all the drunks in cages coming home. Any ride up north is beautiful. You go from cacti to forrest in a matter of hours and the scenery is just gorgeous :yesnod: City driving is okay. Most roads are kept nice, and the flow of traffic is generally 10mph faster than the speed limit. Freeways are a little insane (and FAST). You should stop by in the winter or spring. Its some of THE BEST weather in the country at that time!
