So we get to NM and take in some sight like downtown Las Vegas
Pecos National Momument
We put new tires on the bikes and were ready to go except for one small detail.
The unpredictable springtime weather in New Mexico.
Weather clears and we hit the trail to Las Cruces.
The lad ends up having biz to take care of in Las Cruces and Las Cruces was the last place I wanted to hang.
I continue south to Big Bend National park.
Lots of other riders on the road.
This fellow was sporting Texas colors proudly on his 2000cc Kawasaki!
Texas wildflowers were in full bloom.
Lots of riders sporting some fancy iron.
Some nostalgia in Louisiana.
Spanish moss in Natchez Mississippi.
I hop on the Natchez/Trace parkway.
It looked like this for 200 miles north, very pleasant and relaxed riding. No traffic to speak of.
Beautiful cyprus swamp.
