Motorcycle Ride the Continental Divide (Riding the Divide)-ABQ

Posted by on Aug 29, 2012 in Continental Divide Trail, USA | 1 comment

I’m about a week behind in my story now… And a week is precisely how long we waited in Albuquerque for another part, this time the diode board for the GSPD. Actually, we got that ordered the same day we returned home, Friday. The part came in on Monday, yet once it was installed we were both really bummed to see that the bike was STILL not charging properly…that ‘s okay for around-town ventures but across country? You need...

Motorcycle Ride the Continental Divide (Riding the Divide)-GSPD blues (or, more properly titled, back to ABQ)

Thirteen miles north of Grants, the paved road turns to dirt and were back in business. It’s around 6 pm, and we decide to start looking for a camp site.   We rode up a rocky forest trail to where the land leveled out just over 9000 ft, and set up camp.       Petty flowers growing way up there. We eat cheese and crackers for dinner, enjoy the adult beverages we purchased in town, and get a...

Motorcycle Ride the Continental Divide (Riding the Divide)-Pie Town

Posted by on Aug 15, 2012 in Continental Divide Trail, USA | Comments Off on Motorcycle Ride the Continental Divide (Riding the Divide)-Pie Town

We get up early to beat the heat, and we ride ~160 miles of pavement to get back to Old Horse Springs.   We gas up in the same spot where we broke down, hang a right on a dirt road, and make our way forty miles or so up to Pie Town.     Pie Town, NM is famous for it’s, well, PIES! (Here’s some info in the quaint little town if you are interested: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pie_Town,_New_Mexico ) We...

Motorcycle Ride the Continental Divide (Riding the Divide)-GSPD in ABQ

Clark, my riding buddy, lives in Albuquerque, so in the morning we have the GSPD towed again back to his place.  He has a garage there with all sorts of tools, and it was a convenient place for me to hang out while we waited for the new relays to come in the following day. After picking up and installing the relays , the bike still wasn’t charging quite right. A new battery and substantial testing later, Clark goes...

Motorcycle Ride the Continental Divide (Riding the Divide)-GSPD Blues

We awoke to free range cows grazing near the camp site. It took a while to pack up, but we weren’t feeling any particular hurry. It was a lovely morning and we were in the Gila mountains…and ready to explore. The first bit was through the forest, then along a stream bed that alternated being our road bed. It was the first challenging bit of terrain and we were eating it up.     Gotta love tight, winding forest...

Here’s a video I shot while having an incredible riding day through the Gilas…we wound in and out of this stream bed for several miles. It felt great to be on such a capable motorcycle (my 2006 KTM 950 Adventure of course) 🙂   Motorcycle Riding the Continental Divide – Gila Mountains...
