awesome

Buggs,

Thankyou for putting this ride together it was awsome fun. To all in our group, great riding by everyone. You know it was a grand ride when all return safe and nothing is damaged and the sites were absolutely incredible. I agree with inazone, great new winter riding area. There were a shutfull of roads in that area and all look as if they need to be discovered by someone on a cycle.

Slojoe,
big thanks to you for the chase vehicle. It was sure nice knowing you were there if needed. I did put my backpak in the back and made the ride on sunday so much better. Now, get down there on your bike and enjoy what we did.

Another Ride

I'm already thinking of another pass through the Jornada, or just exploring the area near Socorro. My bike is good for 160 to 180 miles, then the fumes run out.

Socorro Area Rides

Hey Grizzzly, the Socorro area is all new for me, so anything you have in mind for an easy day of riding has my attention. I would enjoy checking out some of the canyons west of your father's place and the roads east of the river. We cut off the north loop of the Jornada ride due to fuel limitations. You had mentioned that area having lots of roads and trails. I'm ready to go whenever you are.

I wish Monticello, NM was off limits to motos

I ride a Triumph Tiger 800 and love to ride in the dirt as much as anybody. Lucky for me, I live in New Mexico where there are thousands of miles of dirt roads to ride.

Monticello seems to have become a popular place for "adventure" riders in - or coming to - New Mexico. It is a beautiful little creek canyon that was a sacred spot for the Apache Indians way back when. The town of Monticello is a peaceful little town with historic adobe buildings and small family farms.

In my opinion, the parade of jeeps, ATVs and off road motorcycles is ruining this canyon. If you want an "adventure," take any one of hundreds of dirt roads in the area to visit ghost towns, hot springs, archeological sites and amazing, lonely vistas. If you need suggestions, PM me.

People I've talked to who live in Monticello agree with me. Motorcycles and 4 wheelers are disturbing the peace, wreaking havoc on the natural ecosystem and bringing noise and pollution to this lovely little place.

How about we let that eco-system rest and renew and take the internal combustion engines elsewhere?
