Question Where do you practice?

With the understanding that for the most part it's impossible to practice long wheelies in any other area other than the highway, where do you practice your low speed stunts?

I have a couple of places that I've recently found. Most of them are small parking lots that are blocked by concrete barriers. Bikes can get in but cars can't. So far since I've kept my presence there down to just weekends, we haven't been bothered. All of the places I am referring to are behind industrial parks.

Anyone know of a an airport??

An abandoned airport or airforce base would be clutch to find.

What about locations in Phoenix?? Anybody know of any where the cops won't hassle me? I found a nice stretch about a quarter mile long in north scottsdale, but it was next to houses, and I was worried they'd call the cops about the noise of a revving crotch rocket going back and forth up and down their street...

Some backroads we have around here do the trick.
Only ones that cann see me there is the cows.

There is a guy that owns a huge building with a massive parking lot that someone said doesn't mind us playing at night. But I'm going to wait till I find out for sure.
