What do you mean exactly?
Some tips I could give are.. get your license plates switched to AZ plates within 6 months of arrival.
There are red light cameras at intersections (some, not all) in the dense city areas, watch out for that.
Insurance premiums are high here, for a number of reasons, so be aware of that.
Car and bike theft are very common in the metro Phoenix area. Unfortunately, it's either number 1 or 2 in the nation for vehicle theft, so get a club for your car, and do whatever you can for the bike.
And watch out for the heat. I don't know what Florida's like, but April and August are very different here. Until you get used to it, drink a ton of water and stay cool. Riding between the hours of about 10:00am and 6:00 pm is unadvisable until you get used to the unreal heat.
