First-ever trail rides

Prior to my trip from Oct 31-Nov 4 I had never ridden a Motorcycle before. My friend and an Instructor with Adventure Riders International, http://www.adventureridersinternational.com, not only taught me the ropes of how to ride a Motorcycle but also let me experience some nice trails in northern New Mexico. I can't thank him enough for getting me hooked into Adventure / Enduro Riding (I think my wife is less than thankful) and I'm already looking forward to the next trip out on the trails. This is a great Forum and I'm glad to be a part of it.

Thanks to those from whom I've already bought my first riding jacket and riding pants, thanks to future members from whom I buy something, and sorry to at least one person from whom I didn't (yet) buy a bike. I'm enjoying learning this new hobby. Within 1 week of returning home from the trip I acquired my Motorcycle Learner's Permit so I'm on my way.

Pics and videos of some of the action at http://dschilberg.smugmug.com/Travel...12/Trail-Rides. In that gallery there are links to some graphical replays of the trail rides that show speed, elevation, terrain, etc. in case that is useful/helpful to others.
