Welcome to the forum from Massachusetts. I was stationed in NM with the USAF at Cannon AFB many years ago. I do remember a lot of service personnel getting motorcycles because of the weather permitting year long riding. However that part of NM was not what you would call, “The Land of Enchantment”. By your locality it is beautiful. Enjoy your bike and ride safe. BTW, I like that white jacket you got there.
In my personal view, that color combo is the most beautiful one in the entire range. That’s the first R9T I saw and immediately knew that’s what I want (although it slipped through and I got the classic black).
