What's wrong with New Mexico ?
« on: July 23, 2021, 12:26:39 pm »
I have watched a lot of TAT and CDT videos and I reckon New Mexico is a gem of a state to do adventure riding in. Sunny and hot year round (?), great desert riding and as you head north even some mountains and pine forests to have fun in. It seems Colorado, Arizona and Utah always get the most exposure. Guy waffles on a bit, watch from 3:45 where trail start.

Absolutely agree. That was my destination in my Oct USA ride and it really is a hidden gem. Vastly differing terrain daily with space and good infrastructure. I should have moved there 5 years ago when I had the chance.
1978. It's 6am, mid winter...two up on a XL 185S ... off to my first casino ever with all of R40 and we've got a full tank of fuel, so enough to get there we reckon.... that's determination...

Vast open and not many people, scenic what more could one want.

One of the US states I would moved to in a heartbeat liked the bit I traveled through. :thumleft:
