Angry Canyon Lake Speed Traps

I have noticed lately that there have been a lot of police in the twisty roads near Phoenix, especially Canyon Lake. A friend of mine got a questionable speeding ticket there last Saturday at 5:00am. Most of you have heard of operation MC Hammer- this is most likely related. Keep your eyes out on the way to Tortilla Flat for the cops, they are hiding well and not giving out warnings. A recon. run is best before attacking the curves at full speed. After having spoken with a DPS officer later, he stated that they typically don't care what you do if it is before 8-8:30 on that road, but things are changing. Keep your eyes peeled and throttle up on the first run through.

It's hard to be a stand up guy in a sit down world.

I went out there 2 Saturdays ago with a couple guys and didn't see one cop. It was pretty nice.

89A

I know its switching gears a little bit, but I'm in the NW Valley and usually up through 89A and have yet to see a cop on the weekends...at least in the tight stuff around Prescott & Jerome. Add the roads out by Bagdhad & Skull Valley & its a pretty nice playground!
