Fantastic scenary with green meadows and lakes viewed mostly from on high. This section offers a great selection of fast sweepers and medium speed switchbacks. Well worth a look.

70 : Hondo - Ruidoso ( Part of The Billy the Kid Trail )

NM - Chaves/Otero/Eddy/Le... > New Mexico > United States > America
September 24, 2007 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

In the middle of the southern New Mexico desert rises the Sierra Blanca mountain range. This is the shortest distance between Texas and skiing. The Billy the Kid Trail is a lopsided trianglular route described by US 70 in the southern leg, US 380 in the eastern leg, and NM 48 in the west. Featured places are Ruidoso and Capitan where Texans haul their monster trailers for a break from the endless flatlands. In September, there is a huge rally of the unofficial New Mexico State Vehicle, the Harley Davidson, called the Golden Aspen Motorcycle Rally. When the leaves change the scenery is particularly striking. The map does not show the trip well, but you can start and finish anywhere on the loop, Capitan, Hondo, Ruidoso. Watch out for traffic on holiday weekends, but the scenerys worth the ride.

Oahu : Tantalus Drive and Little Round Top

OK. I know youre wondering how youre going to make this ride. Rent a bike, I guess, or join the military and get stationed here. I used to abuse my footpegs about once a week on this infinite hairpin. If you have to have more than two wheels, get a convertible. To get there, turn from Auwiolima St onto Tantalus Drive. As you climb up out of the residential area, you suddenly find yourself in the rainforest and the fragrance makes you believe that there must be more oxygen in the area. At the top, you break out into a causeway were you can see Honolulu to your right and the western end of Oahu on your left. Best ridden at sunset for the most spectacular views. At some vague point, the road turns into Little Round Top Dr, and winds down through bamboo forest abak into the city. this is not a road to be taken in a hurry, and kids and cars will jump out at you at eiher end of the journey. Enjoy!
