I am back to living in New Mexico. Always liked it here. I am now closer to riding in the Four Corners area where I really like.

You got that right. Closest enough to visit best friends and relations and then get out.

There are quite a few nice spots. Red River sure is one of the prettier spots. One day when you have a riding urge we are close enough to meet half way and get lunch. My treat!

I say Texas is hot and humid but you being from the East coast are used to the humidity already!

WOW! I just showed all how slow I am!!! I see where you are from now. You are WAY South. In the good parts of the year for riding you must go quite a distance to get to anywhere that has mountains and trees.

You moved near Brownsville. You expected different? That far south, it can be 102 by April. BTDT.

Congrats!  One of my favorite states.  

Where about are you living NE, NW, SE, SW?

I like the Abiquiu area.  

We have thought about buying property out there many times.  Still might.  I heard it is expensive to leave once you become a resident.

Good luck and keep us posted on the transition..

Thanks

I am Rio Rancho which is next to Albuquerque on the North side. Abique(sp?) is very pretty and there is good riding around that part of New Mexico.

No, no, no. Abiguiu(I looked up the spelling, unlike Fly Boy) is North of Albuquerque about 100 miles. Very beautiful up there.

I would like to go back out to NM and spend more time exploring the good roads. Usually only ride thru the northern part when going to CO.

Only problem riding out there is it is such a long slog to get there and the Ozarks are so much closer.  Crazy

My son and two of his buddies were going to do an Iron Butt SS1000 out to Albuquerque avoiding the big interstate (I 40) in September. He invited me to come along. One of the guys crashed his bike and the trip was called off.
