Of these places where would you live? - November 16, 2007, 09:46 AM

I have been wanting to move out of this area for ever. I want a change of pace. I also may be changing careers.
Things I don't like about this area: traffic, expensive, uptight, rude people, to cold in winter for my liking, too suburban/soccer mommy/gotta keep up with the joneses/cookie cutter homes and neighborhoods, traffic ticket fines.
Things I like about this area: some great riding roads, big riding community, good amount of tracks within strikin distance, some great scenery, great rivers for white water, lots of hotties, lots of friends, good for adventure sports.

Things I am looking for in a new location: warmer climate, layed back, good riding roads, within striking distance of atleast a couple decent tracks, more polite people, good singles atmosphere(not trendy), not as strict traffic enforcement, good scenery

Places I am thinking about moving: Charleston SC, Raleigh/Charlotte/Wilmington NC, Southern/mid CA, Arizona, Las Vegas.

The area needs to have atleast a decent local economy cause I will either be starting a business there or purchasing one. I am also open to new ideas of other places. I am just brain storming and hope to make the move in about a year or a little more. Any info or opinions you have would be great. This summer I am going to visit as many of those places as possible.

yea same way I saw it.

This area has nice backroads, tracks within a good distance.

If I was to move it would be Cali or Florida. If I go to florida, I'll prob. end up with a hot chick who would be a goldigger and have the hugest flat spot ever.

Cali lots of chicks, mountains, near las vegas, good snowboarding place.

Move to wisconsin the Kenosha area lol.

Go with Charlotte NC... close to tracks, still some city life, but you can get out to the "country" quickly.

Personally I'd pick AZ. I lived in Charlotte for awhile, it's pretty nice. Like here, it's close to the mountains and beaches, but it's a bit more slower paced. If you have any specific questions, just PM.

Another thing, during the winter if begins to snow, the city shuts down. Just a FYI.

Cali can be expensive depending on the area. Traffic can be just as bad or worse also. But its the MC Mecca and you can lane share. People tend to be more mellow, laid back.

AZ is cool but the riding is not the same and not everything is within "striking distance". Less traffic, cheaper than Cali and NOVA. Winters will be wonderful...summers will be hell...literally.

From my experience and from what you posted, NC sounds like the best fit for what you're looking for.

AZ is good if you get up into the mountains -- Jerome or between Flagstaff and Sedona.

We're looking at various locations in NC too. The cost of living up here just isn't worth it.

I have thought a lot about Colorado. I would love to live there but not year round. I do like the snow and hitting the mountains but the cold gets to me. 90% of the things I enjoy are best in warm weather. It does have so many things I like. Damn winters are long and cold.

Maybe base it on career opportunities (just a thought) Lots of banks in Charlotte, and going fast. Good place for IT work, if you might be in that field.

Two of my good friends moved to Phoenix, AZ area about 2.5 years ago. They love the area, apparently great riding areas however only good riding when it's cool enough to. Neither most of the summer, too damn hot! However right now it's in the 70's and beautiful.
