Two of us ran it in two and a half days but you won't get to enjoy any roses.
Good to know. I did the utbdr in 3 days, struggled a bit with bad weather, but still had a blast. I’m not the rider who starts at 10am and is already at a hotel at 3pm.
You’re saying it’s rutted bad right now?
No just part of a saying, "railing ruts and nailing ..........."
In Truth or Consequences myself hoping to finish in CO in a few days. Awesome tracks, so far. I appear to be behind another couple bikes by a day, or so.
Camped in Chloride Canyon last night. Made it to Grants for tonight. Had a pinch flat due to rocks - where else? Bear Wallow.
Chloride canyon is great. Post up a picture or two.
Let me know if you find any snow at the north end....2 of us are leaving from Ruidoso next Saturday heading north
Really enjoyed Grants to Cuba.
@SKINNY No snow at all, but scattered Tstorms made a slippery muddy ride out of some of it. The Los Pinos river is over the road in places, but easily passable.
@mntdawg Yes that section was a blast. The first 30 miles or so I was wondering what you were talking about.
I finished in CO this afternoon. What a great route! Headed home. Pics and RR to come!
I was supposed to finish in CO today too... unfortunately my riding partner broke his shock yesterday for the second time this week and we called the trip over.
I was wondering whose tracks I'd been following and why they vanished. Sorry to hear about the bad luck.
Yeah, we had to cut out on section 6 yesterday. Had to ride to ABQ and snag a uhaul. If I had known we had company so close behind us, I would have stayed and finished out with you! I wanted to make it to Colorado so bad.
That's a bummer.
Couple of shots of the Los Pinos River in the road on the far north end of the NMBDR from this past weekend.
I'd like to know if the guy that was on the 450L and his buddy in the land cruiser made it through. We met up with him a couple of times over the week, and lost his tracks somewhere between chloride and reserve (I assume he camped out at the top of the mountain).
I ran stage 7 between Abiquiu and Antonito on Sunday, June 16th, and can confirm what was already stated about the creek being on the road and the mud, I did find 2 small piles of snow though...have a pic of 1. Raining again today in Northern NM, so depending on snow melt and rain, the rivers could be high and the roads a bit muddy for awhile. I ran it on the stock KTM 1190 ADV "S" model Conti Trail Attack tires, aka street tires, so duck soup for anybody on a smaller bike with knobbies! That mud is slippery as snot w/ those tires though! Absolutely gorgeous day and you will never see it any greener up there, just stunning.
I have now finally finished the NMBDR, took me almost 3 years...and ended it on a different bike, but better late than never.
Last week in the middle of Sec 7
We’re you the 9X0 dude that ripped by me in the Forest heading towards Abiquiui?
