    Lane, welcome from the coast of Kansas. First place I would ride is a short hop to Palo Duro Canyon. Different experience when on a motorcycle. Next, a bit longer ride, would be the Coronado Highway (US 191) north-south run along the New Mexico/Arizona border. Would be a fitting introduction to 2-wheeling.

    Both of my suggestions, however, should come AFTER you complete the appropriate safety courses.

    Good luck.

    (US 191) Get an old map. Used to be US 666. You can have a devil of a good time on that one!
