Written DirectionsNavigate to HWY 246 in ROSWELL, head west on 246 to CAPITAN. Once you reach hwy 246 you can't get lost.
SceneryAverage to fair scenery quality. Mountains to your 12 on the beginning of the journey, they draw closer on your 10 and 9 as you near the mid-point of the route, passing through and around the mounts. towards the end. Capitan Historical Marker at end of route on left.
Drive EnjoymentSome potholes along edge of road, otherwise a very nice ride. Nice elevation changes but nothing too serious. Wish I would have brought the bike for this route. Perfect for those who do not want to be interrupted by LEO on high-speed runs.
Nice elevation changes, nothing too serious. Long sweepers with a few (not many) tight curves (20mph-35mph curves) along the route. Mostly open road. Didn't encounter any LEO at all over a 4 hour period of 120mph runs. Some potholes on the edges of the road but nothing a bike couldn't dodge. Recommend staying to the mid-center of the lane for all hill crests to avoid any unexpected road conditions. REMEMBER TO BE VERY ALERT TO BLIND HILLS/CURVES AND ONCOMING VEHICLES AS MOST OF THE LOCALS WILL USE 100% OF THE ROAD AND WILL BE FLYING.
