Ride to Kingston

Craig Littlefield

September 2012

On October 19th, 2012 seven of the Friday riders headed for Kingston NM. We planned to stay there on Friday night and then go on to Alpine Arizona for the SEAT overnighter on Saturday. We would ride home on Sunday.

We left Tucson early taking AZ77 to Globe and on to Safford. Then over Mule Creek Pass to Silver City. Kingston is 60 miles east of there over NM152. It is a tight winding road over the Black Mountains. A great motorcycle ride.

We stayed at the Black Range Lodge. It is an old lodge that is family owned. It is very rustic but a great place to stay. They do not usually serve dinner but as there are no restaurants in the area they fixed of dinner of hamburgers and hot dogs and all the trimmings. In the morning they served us breakfast. We all enjoyed hanging around the pool table in the evening.

If you are looking for a great short overnight destination with your bike or you significant other this is the place.
