New from Western Massachusetts

This past Monday, after not sleeping all night under a full moon (too excited), I hopped on an entirely new 5:45 AM high speed train from Greenfield, MA to NYC, bused into New Jersey, and hopped on my K9 WeeeStrom for the first time. Bought on craigslist for 3 grand with low miles and some great additions already on it. This is my first big bike. Previously a Grom 125 owner, grew up flying around sandpits on dirt bikes. I'm 5'8" and 145 lbs. My first ride ever was escaping NYC metro area rush hour and cruising back to Massachusetts. Wowzers, that was exhilerating! This thing is awesome!!

Anyways, looking forward to moto camping and interested in group rides in the area.

DonQuixote,
Welcome. I see that you located in Western Mass. You live in a great spot for riding. Head's up if you have not seen these posted. The Northeast Vstrom Adventure group ( N.E.V.A.) and it's riders get together for adventure weekends during the season. The big gathering is held the first weekend in August at different locations in the Northeast. We also have Plan A ( at the Mohawk Trail campground in Western Mass) at the end of May, Plan B ( usually in Vermont) in early July, the Fall Peep Show in Main at the end of September, and possibly one or two more. Great bunch of riders, and great riding. Look under events, and North America regional sections for postings. Safe riding.

Thanks, I will definitely check out NEVA. Hoping to ride up to Potsdam, NY on the country roads before the real cold sets in. Gotta show this moto to my grandfather who taught me how to ride twenty years ago!
