    Default Visiting Santa fe

    My father and I are in Santa fe for a few days visiting family. I was wondering what routes we should check out while we are here. The VTXs ran great going across the country. We stayed in Denver for a few days and rode down yesterday and got caught in a horrible hail storm!

    Take hwy 285 north to Tres Piedra, then hwy 64 West to Tierra Amarilla. Nice mountain riding there. Probably the prettiest part of all of New Mexico. In Tierra Amarilla you can catch Hwy 84 south and be back in Sante Fe. I checked the map program and its a 221 mile circle.

    I have been down Hwy 64. Sure worth seeing.

    Sorry, I didn't see this earlier. There is lots of good riding around Santa Fe; up towards Taos, on up to Red River, over west to Chama, and on to the Million Dollar Highway going back up to CO. Others have recommended a ride from down by Silver City into AZ and back into NM, that is supposed to have more switchbacks and turns than the Dragon, but I can't remember the route/roads! There's also great riding in the mountains near Ruidoso on the SE part of the state, too.

    Next time you're in the area, let me know. I live in ABQ.
