    More slow and easy once I get to the trail. Of course it really depends on the roughness of the terrain, but I like to stop every hour for a map check and water break at a minimum. will PM you my number.

    Can anyone recommend a good motorcycle repair/tire shop in the Albuquerque area (or, maybe a bit southwest of there)?

    A group of us from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan are planning on riding the Continental Divide Ride next summer. We figure that by the time we ride 2K+ miles to the start of the trail, we will need some fresh knobbies to put on before starting the track north. Hoping to either ship tires to the shop, or buy the tires there, and get them mounted up.

    Thanks!

    I have used and can recommend Moto-Authority in Albuquerque. Their web page is www.moto-authority.com

    That being said, Steve and crew usually have a bunch of bikes to work on any time, so they may not suit your needs if you need something immediate and/or unscheduled.

    Other places I've used:

    Team R&S Motorsports (they have a couple of different locations):
    https://teamrands.com/Service/Service-Department

    Bobby J's Yamaha on Menaul Blvd NE:
    https://bjsyamaha.com/Service

    There is also a Motosports of New Mexico dealership in Los Lunas, just off I-25 at Exit 203 -- that dealer also has locations in Las Cruces and Santa Teresa:

    Another independent Albuquerque shop I would recommend is High Velocity Cycles
    https://high-velocity-cycles.business.site/
    I have had suspension work done by them, and the work was top notch and reasonable.
    I have also had work done by Team R&S and Bobby J's. Both were very good.
