I would add the following:

Hwy 72 from Raton to Folsom then 325 to the top of Capulin Volcano
Hwy 246 from Capitan to Roswell
Cloudcroft to Sunspot and then Timberon

Enjoy!

NM's Best Rides?

A friend and I were discussing the best NM roads to ride on. WITHOUT consulting the Butler Gold Roads map, this is what we came up with and looking for some feedback (cuz we're planning some, or all, of these rides):

1. Raton to Taos, via Cimarron (Hwy 64)
2. Vegas to Angelfire, via Mora (and perhaps all the way to Red River) - Hwy 518 > 434 > 64> 38
3. San Ysidro through Jemez to Los Alamos (Hwy 4),and down to Pojoaque (w/ maybe a side trip to the Gilman tunnels)
4. Socorro to Magdalena (Hwy 60)
5. Hwy 152 from I-25 over the the Black Range to Silver City (via Hillsboro)
6. Madrid to Mountainair (Hwy's 14, 337 and 55)
7. 120 from Wagon Mound to Roy
8. Bloomfield to Taos via Hwy 64

Our rating criteria centered low traffic, great scenery, fun topography. Thoughts?
