Here are a few pics from New Mexico.

There were a few water crossings. Here's Tracy following an overflowing river close to the Colorado border.

I'm pretty sure this was the 1st time any of us ever had a Llama walk through our camp.

These were the only crashes we had on the whole trip. 1st my bike fell over one night in camp. Then Tracy

fell over in camp and this is Van's bike after it fell over in camp. No flats, mechanical issues or crashes in 

1600 miles on the trial.

We saw Elk, deer, antelope, turkeys, bears, llamas and a few other creatures on the trail, and some pretty

interesting people in some of the small towns including a guy in red underwear at a Subway shop that

wanted to join us on our ride.

This is called Teakettle rock.

Always find a Kug sticker wherever we go.

Like most BDR's this one had it's good parts and some pretty boring parts. Getting back to the start was

a bit of a grind on the small bikes, but it's all good. Already planning our next trip

Thanks Chris . 

A good ride but we decided that we have more fun on loop rides -- even though we made it a loop. My throttle thunb has gone numb !

Of  course had the exploding trailer tire . Had a good time with the local tire shop. Learned a bit on noodleing -- and also when to leave when you see a rubber glove come out of someones pocket. The Keystone was cold and in general the most fun part of the trip.

We did not get to enjoy the finish of the NMBDR because the weather was moving in.

   Congrats on the Successful Voyage - Chris, Van Tracy and Kug.  Say Kug, did you install those 100mph rated trailer tires for CID to haul through the states?? Tell us campers how your luggage solutions worked out. While you are at it, tell us how those "New Tech" KTMs worked.  We all want to emulate your success!

Great stuff Fellas, looks like diverse terrain and maybe not too cold and wet and not too hot.  I have to agree with the idea of loops having the most potential to avoid the drone home. Or get a shuttle driver, like maybe.....   Advent-uber shuttle company. :)

That's actually Ken, he hadn't eaten in a few hours and he said he was down to skin and bones, maybe just bones.
