If you plan to visit New Mexico, Please keep your valuables secure and out of sight. Theft is rampant.

Also, if you plan to visit Mexico, please wear level IV body armor under your ADV jacket and a battle helmet instead of your regular Klim helmet since drug cartel shootouts and kidnappings are rampant. Finally, Aprilia cannot guarantee the safety of your Starbucks lattes.

Better yet stay in the security of your home and never go out of your room due to active shooters all over the USA

That’s a bit of an exaggeration, but it’s always smart to look after your things and just use common sense.Not sure how your comment contributes to this story. There is a ton of fantastic riding in New Mexico. I think Aprilia made a good choice in choosing there to let people experience their bikes as there is a wide variety of terrain.

They’re talking about New Mexico NOT Mexico. Two entirely different places. New Mexico is in the United States.

Oh, my bad, I didn’t realize that Baja California is part of the United States now.

Lived in Belize for four years! Rode trail bikes all around Central America, including Mexico & Guatemala! No problems! Very safe and the people there love Americans! Well, they did then! That was 2015-2017! Like anywhere, just use common sense! If it’s Mexico, Guatemala or New Mexico (USA), ask the locals where to go or not go! Take your diaper off and just ride! Stop watching the news!

Well said brother, get away from the “resort” areas and the people and culture is fantastic. Rode with Seirra Madres 6 years ago. Awesome experience.

Genius! 2 great destinations. Mexico for adventurers that don’t mind being outside of the USofA. New Mexico for those folks that prefer to stay within US borders. I am of the former mindset. I’ve traveled in Mexico (and much sketchier places) and never had a serious problem. I can say the same thing about traveling within the US. Operate in your own personal comfort zone, wherever that may be, and enjoy. Kudos to Aprilia for keeping this going and offering options.
