Wayne and I showed up with two bikes and trailer with lots of room (we will come back to this). Fighting a headwind all the way down to NM from CO. *Trailer was handmade by Wayne Demonja from C-FAB. If you need anything from a roll-cage to a BAJA Desert Truck built, hit him up.


Big John covered the route, safety and hooked us up with some free swag.




Halfway up the first ridge of mountains a quick break and some instruction of riding technique



Loved this sign and the ice cream I had.



We cruised through some cool little towns. Who would have thought none of them have any gas stations. I missed the shot of the two dogs dragging a donkey head across the road - lol

At this point all was fine and then we hit the mountains..... and awesome riding and eventually snow and slime mud. I stopped taking pic at this point. This pic was right after a river crossing.







Jump ahead to where we stayed that night. We where desperate, everything was closed and it was now past 6pm, wet and cold. We got the hookup from a campground at Horca, CO and paid $10 each to stay in the "game room" - it had an old iron wood stove. Soon the room was filled with the funk smell of boot drying out next to the stove.




We woke up to this




We rolled out early that morning after filling ourselves with the free coffee



This day had some great riding in wide open flat terrain. Too bad my GoPro batter malfunctioned....it would record for 10 sec and then dead... hope others have pics.

Skip ahead and we are camping outside Taos. Nice little campground with a firepit and wet wood.








I saw this thing and ran - to get my camera




The last day was a long haul and included miles at around 10K to 11K with wonderful views and technical rocky sections.



We cruised back to our hotel close to Santa Fe and found a way to fill up the trailer - it was now officially an eighteen wheeler. Dave hooked us up with a round of drinks and we took off.




Our longest day was 229ml and the others around there as well. Thanks out to the RMAR and NMHOVA folks and John Lane for organizing once again a fantastic event for everyone

Where are we going next???

The Quien Sabe 600 ended up being a very nice surprise. The riding and the country and the views were just phenomenal. There were technical, rocky descents and climbs for the big bikes and there were slimy, snow/ice covered roads......and there were high-speed sage-desert roads to run fast. Total diversity was experienced.

11 riders finished the ride and it was a wonderful experience and new friends were made.

I can say without a doubt that northern New Mexico has some of the best adventure riding in the nation.

It was a pleasure to ride the roads and trails....while raising funds for NMOHVA.

Big John

The ride included one meal provided by RMAR. The choice was the Guadalajara Grill in Taos. The feast was on....as the table was surrounded with hungry adventure riders.

A little video teaser

Here is a little video footage from the Quien Sabe on Friday.

Watch it in 1080p if you have the bandwidth

Thank you, rick!

Huge thanks to Rick of Buffalo Thunder Casino and Resort for hosting the QS600. The hotel is outstanding and the Black Jack tables are a lot of fun!!!
