Format: Paperback
This books gives some pretty cool descriptions on different areas in the Southwest including Southwestern Colorado. My husband and I are familiar with the Colorado chapter and it was as though we were going through it again. Except it was in words and in our minds. My husband is going to take the recommendations and ride from the Chicago Area to the Taos New Mexico area. I will follow 2 days behind him with kids in tow. The author also provides valuable information on watering holes as well as places to eat. In desert areas you want to be prepared as to where the last gas station is. The author also gives explicit details on road conditions which makes the trip a lot easier to palette knowing where the "bad" spots are. Either you choose to ride gingerly through it or go around. I highly recommend this book. It's a good read and it contains lots of valuable information.

Must have if your traveling the New Mexico - Colorado area Sept. 26 2004
By flht01 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is very well written with the motorcyclist in mind. Recommended camping areas, off the beaten path type routes and recommended stops along the way. Well put together and a good read, highly recommended.

OK if you LIVE in the South West or plan to spend a lot of time there. Dec 12 2013
By JOHN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My mistake. Buying a tour book that was older than 2-3 years old; a LOT of stuff is not current. Plus, if you're just passing through the area, well, it's more for people who LIVE in that area and want to make the most of all the rides available close by.

This review goes for ALL motorcycle tour books I purchased. Just nothing RECENT out there.

Great Riding Reference for the Southwestern States Dec 29 2011
By Robert Ballantyne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a well researched, well written riding reference. It has been added to the motorcycle trailers library for referencing rides in areas we travel to while vacationing. The turn by turn directions area very well written and every ride loop we have done to date has been as described.

Come tour the 4-corners states. Nov. 17 2010
By J. T. Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It is getting too cold to do many of these, but I have started my planning.

I live in one of the 4 corners states, but was not aware of several of the trips/tours detailed in this book. I like to go to Colorado for skiing in the winter and stream fishing in the summer. Several of the tours are centered in one of my favorite areas.

Each set of day tours is centered around a "base camp". The author is big on campgrounds, but I will find an inexpensive motel to use as my "base camp". A group of day tours is connected by a "trail" that takes you to the next "base camp".

Hopefully, I will be planning trips for years to come, based on the ideas presented in this book. Good riding!
