The road out of Bluff followed the San Juan River, showcasing the desert terrain at it’s best. We made the obligatory stop at Four Corners, paying our final stipend to the Navajo Nation.
Just outside of Cuba, NM, we headed into the Jemez Mountains towards Los Alamos Labs, in hopes of touring the Bradbury Science Museum before it closed. Unfortunately, we ran late and weren’t able to make it before they closed. But we did ride through Los Alamos Labs...looks like something cool happens there, so it will be on the mulligan list next time I’m in the area.
We found a great (affordable) boutique hotel in Old Town Santa Fe and were able to walk the streets before dinner. Cool place. We had originally planned a day of respite in Santa Fe, but decided to point towards East Texas in the morning. Sadly, it was the splitting point for Scott and Karen, as they were flying home out of Albuquerque (shipping the bike back to Charlotte due to schedule conflicts). The official end to the F&%k It, Let’s Ride mancation.
But Liz and I still have miles to go...

With 45+ years of riding experience, the team has developed a library of our favorite rides in Texas and points beyond. We call them our Twisted Rides. We thought it might be a good idea to share that experience and encourage you to do the same!
We partnered with MyRoute-app, a leading provider of route planning tools, to create and share the routes. Using the map below, Users are able to view and download the routes without registering with MyRoute-app. If you would like the ability to open/edit/save the routes, the User will be prompted to register with MyRoute-app and offered two subscription levels - Basic (free) and Gold (fee dependent on subscription term and payment method). Being an avid ride planner, I prefer the Gold level for the additional features and I also believe in supporting independent software developers who invest their time and talents to create useful applications for the motorcycle industry. As a Twisted Rides referral, you receive an extended evaluation period and special pricing if you choose the Gold level - so give it a shot!
