I learned to ride in Utah, but moved to where the better jobs are and also discovered better riding at the same time. My nephew in Sandy has a 999 that he would probably let me borrow next time I come to Utah, if I can remember to bring my riding gear with me. I check in once in a while with http://www.utahsba.com/forum/ mainly to keep in touch with what's happening in the area.
So, would all of the Utah Monster (and other Ducati) riders please respond so we can see how big of a group you are?

We're a bit slow on the DML traffic now as it's still a bit early in the season, I think. However, I'd say we have about 8 weenies like myself who seem to spend a decent amount of time here and then about 6 others that pop in from time to time. Then, I've ridden with a few other Monster riders in the area who are not on the DML but want to (just lazy).
You shouldn't have left for better work-things have been getting better here, at least in my opinion. I guess it depends on what you do. I'm a corporate weenie. Work for GE going on 9 years. Yikes.

I know i used to be a "pop off" for a while... but i think i can be classified as a weenie now! Anyway, im down in Lehi, but i will ride ANYWHERE! Grew up in San Diego, learned to ride out in the desert, crashed enough, thought id try it on the pavement.
Bikes i have jumped and or crashed<br />05 H.D. Roadking Classic - (wasnt trying to jump it ...but managed not to crash it)<br />04 Yamaha Zuma - jumped and crashed - really funny to watch!! <br />03 KX250 - (whoops suck!! lots of whoops + too much speed + loose grip = really funny crash!)<br />84 KDX 200 - i think i crashed it more than i rode it! (the bike i learned on)
I grew up in Orem, and moved to Provo just a few years ago (Orem is much better than Provo).
I'm on here all the time as I'm job searching now that school is out.

I'm in salt lake with a black s2r800. Lurked around the old post for a while but never said anything because I have been riding for less than a year and just wanted to go at my own pace learning. Thought I'd introduce myself at least and I'd be interested to start riding with more people and riding different places. The name is Kevin by the way.
