I expected a town....but below is Hannigan Meadow. A Lodge of sorts with a cafe and a couple of gas pumps.
Old mine workings everywhere.
View on highway 32 near the Gallo Mtns.
We lucked out and only rode in light rain for the last 80 miles. Ran into a "flash flood" section of roadway in El Malpais monument.....a lot of mud / debris was washing across the road but the county had a loader there clearing the road.....had to ride through 100 yards of 4" mud / slop / water to get through. The bike was coated with a nice thick layer of red mud when we arrived at home.
What a great ride this was. I'm going to need to give the sidecar a little rest until I get the oil leaks taken care of. Hopefully I can get Darian on the old Goldwing for a conventional bike ride in the next couple of weeks.
I have a lead on a large stockpile of old BMW parts which I plan on checking out this weekend. I went "fishing" via Craigslist and got a contact from a guy with a bunch of parts: A titled frame, engine parts, forks, fuel tank, headlight....nearly enough junk to assemble another bike. If the price is right we'll drag all this stuff "home" this weekend.....hopefully I can make room for all of it in our trailer.
