One of the best things about doing motorcycle tours is the people you meet and get to ride with. Especially for 2 weeks straight. You hit the same heat, rain, bad roads and sites together, and in creates a bit of a bond between everyone. It’s pretty unique to anything else like […]
Over the last few years, I’ve had people tell me they’ve been to the Jail in Taos where the inside Jail Scenes were filmed in Easy Rider. The Outside scenes were filmed in Las Vegas NM, and its pretty hard to dispute. The jail on the north side of Taos Plaza is not the same place […]
