287 is a pretty road as I recall (been a while) but as of about six months ago the 40 was in terrible shape in eastern NM, closer to the state line, the worse it gets. Pothole city. I kinda like that run from Santa Rosa to Clovis. Fort Sumner was a dark point in our history but it's interesting. Coming down off the llano near Post it's real pretty. Made that run several times by motorcycle and car, once by RV. That's what I would do. Among other things, come this far you don't want to miss Muleshoe of course.
