New Owner- first bike

I just picked up a used 2008 Versys. My very first bike (that i've owned). Love every second on the thing. Can't wait to explore the REST of New Mexico.

glad to see that there's a forum of great, active users.

Welcome.

I had fond memories in NM back in 97. Got lost in Los Alamos, couldn't figure a way out of the area, so ended up staying 1 night there. Next day, decided to use a small road (as per the map) and it ended up a unpaved trail for 40 miles, a kind of a short cut actually. The V would be a nice bike to have on such a trail. Saw Prairie Dogs, lots of wild life, lakes, forests....and I did it on a Mazda MPV. I was sheer sweating not to get stuck in the mud, as the wide road tires weren't the best tires for that road. Had many rally type of unintentional drifting and had to ease off the pedals. Met a biker, a HD, with his gf and they had a hard time in the mud. Eventually I got out (phew!) and 1/2 hour later, the HD passed us waving us by. Now if I revisit that place with a V......

I've only been able to visit the SW portion of NM, but it was a great place to ride.
