5 days West - Photo thread

I decided not to do a ride report but I wanted to upload the photo's and occasional comment. If you are looking for a detailed report, this isn't it. If you want to look at some mediocre photos of NM, AZ CO, UT, stick around.


Day 1, May 12th

Taos, NM - Dulce, NM

Really enjoying the pics DQ. I normally don't read the articles anyway, so keep 'em coming.

Nice

I'll be there in 11 weeks for 2 weeks. I noticed you have a rotopax, did you ever need it? What kind of range do those ktms have? I've contemplated adding one on my Tenere for added insurance. Not sure I really need it with a 6 gal tank.

I never needed the extra fuel but it was nice to have the peace of mind. The 990 only gets 180-200 miles on a tank.

Thanks!

I think I'll be fine without then. Tenere can go between 230-250 on those type roads.

Did y'all ride out there or trailer? I'd love to ride but my wifes going so I'm taking the house literally and garage.

Four corners is one of my stops as is Grand Canyon on the south rim, Vegas, Hoover dam and Arches national park.

Thanks for sharing I am really enjoying the pics.
