On the road by 9:00AM and the bike was running fine. No power loss or "pinging" on the hills. Leaving Cimarron N.M. we headed west on Hiway 64. Wonderful canyons and views. Almost too much to take in. Great ride through miles and miles of canyon roads with little traffic.
Just outside town we passed this huge mining operation. They were still in operation.
We made the big road loop and passed through Taos, N.M. Was surprised to see nothing much to note. The ski areas were some miles up a canyon and we never saw the turn. Most of the town is artist stores etc. We passed directly through and kept on going. Took a back road, Hiway 518 towards Las Vegas N.M.
518 ended up being a great route. Lots of scenic views, canyons and valleys.
Great ride towards the east.
Great looking G.S. road across the canyon.
Very steep grade going down.
I couldn't help myself, needed a front row view...Darian was yelling at me.
Dropping down we ended up on the typical flat area towards Tucumcari. The temperature reached 104 degrees for a while. Covered a lot of miles and a lot of country today...
