Have fun with the 450R!
Did the previous owner have it have it titled & registered in NM for off road? If not you'll definitely want to get that done. I get checked by USFS LEO's at least once a year on my XR400R. Besides checking for current off road registration, they also will check that the bike's exhaust is equipped with a USFS/USDA approved spark arrestor. FYI, the fine is pretty stiff for not having an approved spark arresting exhaust... something like $500 as I recall.
