North New Mexico "Time to Ride" Ride 6-10-12

The North New Mexico “Time to Ride” adventure was a good ride with a bunch of great guys. We encountered some soft sand, jumped a log or two, went down some steep rocky slopes and found some nice roads through scenic New Mexico mountain areas. I need to learn to pack lighter, there was 40 pounds of unnecessary tools, fuel , tubes, rain gear and other goods piled on the back of my old Honda. Here are some shots from the ride.












JonS travelled the greatest distance for this ride coming from Bluff Utah. AtomicXRer was welcoming him to the group.






Leaving Ojo Caliente






























Some of the extra weight on my bike did pay off when JonS ran out of gas.




JonS, Akasy and Slojoe rode the easy way back to Ojo Caliente while the others tackled some more sand on their way back. The mileage for the day on my bike was 95 miles and 2 gallons of fuel used. Thanks to AtomicXRer for getting this ride organized and to all the others for a fun day out in the woods. Please add your pictures and video to show some other views of the trip.

Ride

Slojoe--great pics as usual--and thanks for the use of the xt225, sweet ride and I twisted it's neck--er throttle-- a couple of times--not a complaint from it
With 40lbs of gear on that 500 you had your hands full in the sand--good job
Atomic--thanks again for setting this up
JonS--long way to ride with a bunch of AARP types but you are welcome anytime.
Steve0--better luck next time with the video
CaptRick--thanks for manning the turn points for all of us slower riders

I am working backwards on the videos.

By this time 7 of 11 riders had bailed. Nobody wanted to end the ride in a sandy arroyo. Only Ditch, steveo, elgato gordo, and I wanted more punishment.

First world complaint here, but I really am hating that I can't watch Youtube videos at work. Can't wait to get home.

This section was a favorite of those who rode. Probably because of the lack of well defined road (old trail).
