Rode with a friend today, he has a VFR800, i was out on the new KTM 690 SMC, was trying to scrub the tires in, lol, man i could have sworn i was on the edge, but that thing is so stable, i would have been sliding on the GSXR1000, when i left the house i had 80 miles on the bike, now have over 150 I think...
was a great ride, its right above Albuquerque, all twisties, and I mean all, its hard to find anywhere to pass vehicles you run in to on the way up
Here are the bikes up at the top:
This is overlooking Albuquerque where we rode from:
Another pic looking south, canyon below is called Pino Canyon, I've hiked it many times to the crest, its a 9 mile hike one way:
Pic looking northwest:
Could have sworn i got rid of those chicken strips, had to be careful, there was some rocks on some of the turns and I had two Mule deer run out in front of me, the KTM is stable, never slid, just a blast to ride:
