Hello from New Mexico!

Recommended Posts

kristenjoy
I'm new to this forum and just wanted to say hello to everyone! I live in Santa Fe and can't wait for the weather to warm up a bit more, although I bundled up today for a quick scoot. I have had my 2015 Yamaha FZ-07 for almost a year. I started out riding dirt but had to sell my dirt bike, and now just am monogamous with the street bike. Even though I am sharing a few images here from a photoshoot I recently did with the bike, I did ride myself to the photoshoot and actually tend to ride way more than I pose with the bike. Just sayin'! 
 
This year I am hoping to get more into touring, taking solo camping/riding adventures in the southwest. Travel is my passion, but I am a nursing student so can only manage quick 2-3 day trips these days. I'm also new to motorcycle maintenance, but am figuring it out as much as I can on my own.

Crush your enemies. See them driven before you. Hear the lamentations of their women.

Welcome! You've improved the scenery already. ;)
If you do much touring, you will probably want to add a screen. Givi makes a nice one, but there are plenty of others. MadStad makes one that will let you swap out a flyscreen and a touring height screen. That's the way I'd go if I was doing more traveling, but I do mostly commuting and weekend excursion.
Ride safe!

Got any good pics of the CRF? Im boring like that sometimes.
 
Mine's a 250 Two Stroke. It rips and takes alot of abuse and always fires up one kick.

Haha, Jetgirl I know what you mean. But the rear fender did help out when I had to ride through some muddy water...the rest of me got soaking wet and muddy but it saved my behind. Ha. A lot of people have told me to take that thing off but I don't know if I hate it enough to go through the effort...
