    A buddy and I will be leaving El Paso around 9:30 tomorrow morning and riding towards LC. We will have lunch at La Posta in Mesilla arriving around 1130, then we will ride around the area, destination unknown. One V-Strom 650 and a Himalayan. Anyone else is welcome to meet up with us and ride. Text me if you're coming... 757 five oh three 7399

    Really quiet down there. Is everyone letting a little 50 degree weather stop them? I will be down there mid January until May.

    You are assuming there is such a thing around Silver. Everything I have seen there that you can legally ride is 2 track...sometimes rough. You can't ride OR in the Gila Natl. Forest but everyone would like to. You have to stay on established roads in there. The only place you would find single track might be on someones private property down there.

    I go riding still on Sundays and Mondays. Usually in the deserts and arroyos near picacho peak and the desert west of there.

    Hello NM riders. I am considering trying to use a hall pass to head down to the T or C area to ride Sunday/Monday/Tuesday-ish. Thoughts? Good time of the year? Anyone want to join me? Feel free to message me.

    Thanks for the reply, but looking on the page you linked I’m not sure who T is?

    My tentative plan is to ride Sunday, Monday and part of Tuesday. I’ll stage out of T or C but am flexible. I’ll be on my plated KLX300 so minimal pavement and gnar OK if with others, I tend to be a bit more cautious when alone because consequences are higher

    Anyone interested in joining up or with suggestions please let me know!

    Ah, it all becomes clear! Thanks for the info. Now a kid with a 102F fever may be putting a crimp in my plans...Hopefully he will rebound for tomorrow, if not may have re-schedule.
