Hello from CA with my 2015 Versys 650LT

Hey there,
Just wanted to introduce myself.

I live on the Central Coast of CA and am fairly new to riding street. I've ridden dirt bikes plenty but I was mostly a mountain biker.
I went to the Long Beach Moto show a few months ago and have been looking for a bike to speak to me, to take the plunge into street riding again.I saw the Versys for 2016 and was like, yep, there is my new bike.

Found an epic deal on a 2015 from Epic Motorsports in Santa Barbara (they treated me awesome) on a Friday in the beginning of December. I took the train down and rode her home and then some. 500 miles on her inaugural journey with me. Santa Barbara to San Simeon to San Luis Obispo, had to stop at Ruddell's Smoked Fish tacos for lunch. Such a good day.

Just wanted to say hey, introduce myself and look forward to learning a lot from everyone. I just completed my camping set up for moto camping and I really looking forward to that. I see some amazing adventures on this bike in my future and I could not be more excited. She will for sure be seeing some dirt the best she can handle.

Nice to meet you.
-Adrienne

Welcome Adrienne, congratulations on the new bike, nice looking. Hey I want some smoked fish tacos, I'm all about anything Mexican.
Just put a pot of pintos in the crack pot with some smoked sausage, bacon, ham, jalapeno, bell peppers, onion. I might get fat,
I'm going down to Joe's house to spend the night after I get thru eating.

Thank you for the warm welcome. I've pretty much made my coastal rides, the "Taco Ride" some of my motivation to ride is to consume these tacos, I am not worried about getting too fat as the journey to that is worth it. ;-)
Anyone live near SLO?

No problem on the "hijack" Good to know about it. Work will impede a trip like that for now for me. I am not too worried about too many tacos and getting fat, the journey is worth it.

SLO= San Luis Obispo, California.

Apparently we are " one of the happiest " places to live. I think either Oprah said that or our tourism industry... :-/
Otherwise, I would pretty much agree. Great microclimates, beach, mountains, dunes, coastlines, redwoods. Good stuff, good riding.

SLO = San Louis Obispo. Great little college town! Perfect Central Cali weather. More onramps/offramps in a 5 mile stretch of hwy 101 then anywhere else in the state.
