Week End in Northern New Mexico

I spent the weekend riding with the girl friend into the northern west area of New Mexico. It was a great ride as it always is. The sun shining and the views were spectacular. I could tell the temp was starting to drop it is the time of year. I had a gerbing vest to maintain my comfort level... I may or may not be hard core...but I sure as heck am not looking to be hypothermic or freezing my arse off.....those days are done...been there and done that. My yearly 30,000 miles goal for this year is getting closer. Next year I am going for 50,000 miles, which means no truck just the bike....rain or shine ...dry or raining.... Anyone that wants to make bets on it let me know...I am pretty good with my follow through...lol









When I slow down to smell the roses ....I really do slow down...lol

I would challenge you on the 50,000 miles but I can tell you are one who doesn't like to lose.

I really find New Mexico to be one of those states few talk about, but it is such a lovely riding place - a real hidden gem.

Make sure on your 50K quest you stop and smell a rose or two.
