Motorcycle Roads in New Mexico

The continental divide runs from north to south down the center of The Land of Enchantment.

Additionally, great motorcycle roads are found along the state's western boarder with Arizona where they will find stretches of green mountain ranges. However most of the rest of the state is made up of arid, rocky, canyon rich and sun baked scenery. Some of the most popular stops for motorcycle riders are the Billy the Kid Museum, the Carlsbad Caverns, and the town of Santa Fe, NM.
