I'm bringing my CRF450X and my CRF230F. Just got the 230 plated and I'm not sure if it is a keeper or not. This trip should help me figure that out.
I would like to ride down Dry Canyon on Tuesday morning if you are interested. I need to get acclimated on Monday to whatever bike I'm bringing.

Still not sure, the KTM is misbehaving, antifreeze in the oil...prepping the 22 year old XR400 just in case I can't get the 300 back together.

Re: 10th Annual Smokey Bear Dual Sport Motorcycle Ride 7/30-8/3/18 Cloudcroft, New Me

There is major road construction on 82 for about 25 miles on the east side of Artesia. Depending on the timing, you will encounter one lane with escorts. I have seen as few as one as as many as three different ones in this stretch. The speed limits are as low as 35 mph and not much room to pass.

With the increased oil field traffic, and it pretty much runs 24/7, the lines get pretty long. It has been two weeks since I have gone that way so I doubt much has changed since then. May not be many options to reroute for you all that are coming from the south but just fyi.
