Roads from in western highlands

I will be traveling through Guatemala beginning this weekend and wanted to check on road conditions/safety for a couple spots.

Zaculeo Ruins
I'm crossing at La Mesia then riding to Huehuetenango and to Zaculeo.

Queztaltenango to San Pedro La Laguna
Once I get off the Pan Am Hwy, is the road to Santa Clara then to San Pedro safe? Any robberies on that stretch?

I read many reports that the road around the south of the lake is high risk for robbery, but is it the highlighted road seen in the map below or a smaller local road?

Thanks for any tips. I'm really looking forward to experiencing Guatemala.
Those who dare, risk defeat. Those who don't, ensure it.
