Sandia Peak
How'd your scooter do on the climb?

I lived there for several years and rode or drove to the top when the roads were clear. My Sportster always got a little wheezy towards the top, even when I rejetted it for the altitude.

Nice place to live once you adapt to the thin air.

There were not any problems with going up to Sandia Peak I was slowed mainly by the sharp turns, fuel injected, there is never a length of road I could go very fast on the incline. Lived in the area for ten years, will not move back but always want to visit.
Across the Rio Grande Valley and a little north is another great scooter ride to Valles Caldera with almost equally high altitude but a more challenging road going up the Jemez Valley past San Ysidro .
I have ridden around the enchanted circle north of Taos. At some points on the ride the scooter dropped to under 45 mph full throttle on wide an open road up Bobcat Pass, I agree New Mexico is great and there were really great places and great roads for cars and bikes to travel on in New Mexico.

Abilene, TX. Storybook Capital of America
At least, according to the Chamber of Commerce. Storybook trail, museum, and frequent children's author visits and book signings. Good Night, Moon.

Also, we have an Indian restaurant. No, just the one, but it's quite good, and I've had Indian in Delhi and London...

Yup, it's very cool and the patina gets better every year. Thanks, I learned a new word as well - didn't know there was a word for it - chiaroscuro.

I'm doing a fellow MVer a favour and loaning my scoot out for a bridal shower as he is out of town. Cleaned her up and she's sitting pretty waiting for the guest to take pictures with her.
