Riding in New Mexico, suggestions needed where to ride

Post by Curly »

I'm in Colorado and need to do some riding this winter.

There's a strong chance I'll do a business trip to Clovis, NM in February and I'll most likely bring the KDX with me.

Any suggestions/recommendations for winter riding in NM?

2001 KDX 220, bought 8/10/22 from original owner, still had factory tires. Now ported, milled head, bored carb and revalved/sprung suspension.
1998 KDX 220 for wife (my spare)
2004 KDX 200 - Sold

SS109 on here does a lot of riding in the desert southwest, as I believe he's located in Arizona. He may have some further insights on where to ride.

I have friends who live in the Boulder area as well as in Albuquerque New Mexico, and I had searched briefly in the past and saw several OHV trail areas or multi-use OHV legal trails South of Colorado Springs and in Northern New Mexico. It looks like there's quite a lot of riding to be had down there.

Up at elevations above the base of the front range, you definitely will have a lot of snow in the winter to deal with...
