Has anybody been to this rallyin Ruidoso New Mexico? I had a vendor tell me that there is over 30k that attend this rally ( There are 2 one in the spring and 1 in the fall, with the fall being the better one I was told)
Please shed some light on this and the surrounding country side.

I would like to spend some time in New Mexico and this might be a starting point.

Comments?

Thanks

I have not been to the fall rally, Ruidoso is not a big town to start with and 30000 would be kinda overwhelming I think, I have been in the spring and had a great time there are some great roads and sites to see, whenever you do go be sure to ride up to sunspot just outside of Cloudcroft

An article in the Ruidodo news stated over 30,000 people at the fall rally in 2006. http://www.motorcyclerally.com/page26.htm
Never been to the rally, but have been to Ruidoso a few times. Pretty country around there. Used to hunt deer around Capitan and White Oaks. Look up Ruidodo on Google maps (hybrid view) and get an idea about the countryside.

I try to visit both every year. 2 hour ride for me. Go to www.motorcyclerally.com for dates next year.
The one in the Spring is indeed smaller. (May 15-18, 2008) This is the one I try to visit every year, it's mainly at the Convention Center. Great time of the year to visit and ride. Bring your leathers!

The Fall is the largest. (Sept. 17-21, 2008) The weather is a little warmer, mid-70s. There are many people that frequent this Rally, 30,000 might be right, but I don't think 30,000 actually register. The hotels are extremely expensive for both, so book early.
