Well Hi Guys. Ya it's been a while. Life's busy. This report has been left off 1 year ago but I still want to try get it up to date. Especially I've had some more great adventures & great pics to share.
After my last ride report I had to take a break for some repairs. To me. First my Heart, a cardiac ablation, 4 hours on the table. Worst was having to have a catheter. Worst experience of my life. Had complications after the surgery once home, got fluid in the lungs & couldn't breath. That put me back in hospital for 3 more days.
Well my heart stayed in normal rhythm for 30 days till I went out for my first big dirt bike ride of the year including Red Bull & few beers after, my heart went back into Atrial Fibrillation & I had to go back to hospital for an eletro-
cardioversion. Boom! Hearts back in rythm, till the next ride, 2 1/2 months later. Why so long? Knee surgery. ACL reconstruction. I had destroyed my ACL dirt biking few years before. Well as knee was recovering heart was
going back into chronic Afib. Damn!
Well Suzi is lonely in storage in Phoenix so come September Iflew back out to 110 degrees Fahrenheit, melted grips & experience what I had heard other ADVers talk about: having to do up all clothing to keep the searingly hot air out.
Got out of phoenix to higher ground ASAP. Headed east hwy 60 - 70 - 191 Clifton Alpine Hwy. Beautiful & oh so nice to be back out.
Lets get some pics up.


Clifton mine. Huge.


Hwy 191 is awesome.



Took 191 north to Alpine then went south on 180 to Gila, & Silver City. Great motorcycle roads!

Rode up hwy 25 to 550 west up to San Isidro. Crazy looking down & out Indian town.
"No pictures allowed" Took Hwy 4 the "Jemez Hwy"East to Sante Fe. Fantastic!!!
Shortly was a side trip, left turn onto hwy 485 & to the Gilman Tunnels & Canyon.













This rock above looked like a roasted chicken. See the wing!








Jemez falls. The water was black due to soot from burt trees in local recent wildfires upstream..

Santa Fe is a beautiful town. Mostly Adobe style buildings. None over 3 storey allowed.












Saw a parade & this was one of the floats/elements.


This picture screws up my eyes if i really try to focus on it. You?

Cut across a great side road 126 going NW. Very nice!

Beary nice rock formations.

Loved Taos!
Great beer pubs & restaurants.
Live music
somewhere every night of the week.
Heard an excellent entertainer Jimmy Stafford at a great restaurant in a little town ~ 3 miles out of town on the route to the ski resort. This guy was amazing & at one point was playing the guitar & piano at the same time
Great hub to do a few days of riding out of.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
