I'm going to be in state May 30-June 5 and would love to meet up with a few locals. I'm seriously considering moving to NM next year and want to learn as much as I can. If there are any rides or such in the north part post 'em up and I'll see if I can make it.
New to Stromtrooper, new VStrom 650 2012, new to ABQQ and am interested in posted rides as well as riding w/others.
