Used to live in Roswell. This one of the few routes that aren't dead straight and dead flat. As was stated, there is absolutely NOTHING along the way. Fill your tank and make sure your bike is in shape for 100 degree plus weather. It's doubtful that you will get any cell phone reception so be prepared.

FYI: Capitan is the home and final resting place of the world famous Smokey the Bear. They have the obligatory park and monuments to his memory. Some nice native arts & crafts for sale locally as well.

From Capitan, it is a short ride on to Ruidoso. I'd suggest making the trip a circular one and going on to Ruidoso and return to Roswell via US 70.

For good food and cold beer, check out Farley's in both Ruidoso and Roswell. Both are quite biker friendly.
