Late start=gas stops only!
As we were leaving Winslow this morning we met Wade. He rides a Victory and we've seen him around quite a bit but never met. He's real supportive of the project and we're looking forward to riding with him sometime.
Motorcycles and stuff in Las Vegas NM
We just blasted down the 40, turned left at Albuquerque, and picked up the Santa Fe Trail to Las Vegas New Mexico. Weather was calm and we followed thunder storms across Western New Mexico, only catching a small one around near Cubero. The clouds were still heavy but stopped raining after just a few miles. As we approached the Laguna Pueblo it was glowing white on its hill in the only sunshine for miles.
Things dried out and got a little warm before Albuquerque. The freeways there are the most beautiful and terrifying I can remember. The sky got dark again outside Santa Fe. We rode in mist and road spray from the tail of a pretty wet storm. A few miles east of the Pecos we crossed a shallow stream at the posted speed limit (75) it was pretty scattered from the cars ahead of us and wasn't a threat.
We walked around the Plaza of Las Vegas and had dinner in the hotel. This place is pretty cool, lots of people messing around on motorcycles and cars including the loudest broken car stereo anywhere. Right now there are a few skate boarders in the gazebo across the street. Our windows are open and we're listening to a great trumpet player in the bar below us. Hope he plays all night!
No rules New Mexico!
