Durango & Albuquerque

I'll be in ABQ next weekend, the 13th-17th, going to split town after hitting sandia peak and head up to Durango area to run the 550/145 loop, hopefully a bit more if my schedule permits.

Any of y'all gonna be out there?

I was thet last weekend. Did the Duarngo-Silverton train ride and rode the million dollar highway (scariest rode I've ever been on). You're gonna have a blast!

Enjoy Gary... 550 is an absolute blast, as are many roads in Colorado! Abq sucks... spend less time there if possible.

Thumbs up try rudy's country store and bar-b-q

2 locations in albuquerque . one of the best briskets and ribs i have had in my travels. they also have a full menu of other smoked items and beer. we ate at the one at 2321 carlisle, n.e. and stayed at the motel 6 next door . that one is right off of i-40 . the other one is at 10136 coors rd n.w. , well worth the trip. good luck on your travels.

I have done that loop several times it is a great ride. If you have time stop in Ouray and rent a jeep and go up over Imogene Pass. Quite a trip but you could never make it on a bike (maybe a dirt bike).

Also take a ride to the top of Mesa Verde.

Did the 145/550 loop from Cortez on the way back from SWIII. And from Durango to Pagosa Springs and over Wolf Creek Pass (listening to CW McCall) What a great ride - will do it again from the other direction someday.

Well heaving rain heading north outta ABQ so ran for the sunny spot in Arizona. Wound up at the Museum Club in Flagstaff. Headed to Sedona and Jerome in the morning.

You Arizona folks have it good. Had a nice cruise through Sedona and a few cold ones at the Spirit Room in Jerome. Layover in Prescott.
