Out west, California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona and even the Pacific Northwest, get all the riding accolades. But don’t forget New Mexico. Not only are there a ton of scenic and exciting paved roads, but there are a ton of dirt and gravel roads that are ideal for ADV and dual-sport bikes.
Although a few of these rides are farther north, and therefore subject to cold temps, some of the southern routes can be accessed pretty much year round if you find a nice warm spell. There is some amazing scenery, with a lot of high-desert landscapes and mountains. And a bonus is that you can’t beat the southwestern cuisine. A few of the routes originate near Silver City, which is a super cool town in the southwestern part of New Mexico, and a great hub for riding.
