Do it. Just remember that it's going to be really really hot in Arizona. So if you don't already have a mesh jacket get one. You might plan your trip by heading north first to avoid the worst of the heat.

I suggest Gatorade instead of water. One trip I did I rode 400 miles across the desert in one day at 110 degree temperatures, drank a gallon of Gatorade and never once had to take a pi$$. Since I was on a shovelhead the rear cylinder added that extra bit of "adventure". Although I can usually do 600 mile days that heat really wears you out quicker than you might think.



It's also helpful to stop at gas stations and drench yourself in water. A water battle with a shaker top is handy to douse yourself occasionally as you ride between drenches.

Arizona is worse than El Centro?
