Hello there, troopers!

Just got my DL1000 K2 a month ago, already has some great farkles, been gearing up to start touring a little bit, and checkingin the forums to get know the scene! Fun bike, lots of support, can't wait to start putting highway miles on it.

I'm going to go back to stock sprockets (down 2 in front) and just put standard street tires on her- I'm not doing much dirt riding. It'll be great for camping trips in this beautiful state of New Mexico!

Nice to meet ya-

John

Yep, I actually got lost in Los Lunas yesterday. OK, stop laughing. I know it's not that big a town but I blindly thought I was taking Hwy 47 South when somehow I got on 6. I didn't care because I was enjoying the ride. Pleasant temps, no real wind and the road was excellent. Even saw a couple nice freight trains. Only when I saw the Interchange with I-40 did I figure out what road I had been on. Of course, seeing my low fuel warning for several miles did cause me a few moments of mild panic. Taking I-40 back into Albuquerque and cresting the hill and seeing RT66 casino (fuel stop really) did made me grin a bit inside my helmet. I also found out I took part of the pre 1937 Historic Route 66 while I was at it. Note to self.....fuel up before a trip and take a GPS.

Hey Rick I know that feeling; looking at the fuel light and not knowing where the next gas station is. I always take the Zumo (GPS) with me when I plan on riding out of town, it just makes the ride a little bit more enjoyable.

Yesterday I rode a bunch of gravel roads from I-25 back around the Sandia, some were BIA and one was a very nasty Forrest Service road. From there I road up the White Rock and HWY 4 though the Jamez back to 550. The fall colors are at their peak in the Jemez river valley!

I totally understand. My work takes me away for months at a time, so when I am home - I ride!
