My all-time favorite mc ride in the USA has to be Jerome to/towards Prescott---at least the incredible long and tight twisty from Jerome up the bare side of Mingus Mountain---it's 2nd and 3rd gear stuff all the way up with great visibility for oncoming traffic. After you reach the summit it's not quite as thrilling and it staightens out once you descend to the valley below. But, oh, what a road!
You might want to drop your wife and baggage at one of the B&Bs or hotels in town and make the run solo up and back a couple of times beforehand...
Jerome is perched halfway up the side of Mingus and there are superb views of the Verde Valley below. Sedona and Cottonwood are also close by and the whole area is great to see on two wheels.
My 2c worth; have fun! Jeff
