i have never gone that far, my parents live in mt air. That is the furthest i have gone on the bike. I am in the albuquerque area. How is the scenery? I go through the crest and through the mountains, nice curves, great scenery, lots of traffic though, 10 am to 1pm is the best time to go that route. light traffic easy passing. If you are ever up this way shoot me a pm.
