You have your forum now, so sound off!

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?

Scott-

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 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.

HoooAAAHHH! Or whatever we're supposed to do to sound off.

The group's growing and thanks to Michael Moore for finally sectioning this area off.

Scott, whenever you're in the area, get in touch!

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.

Haha cool, I'll do my best to keep up staying within my limits. I usually ride with a guy that is on the hypermotard S that Salt Lake Motorsports decked out or his monster 1000. He is out of town a lot so I don't have many people to ride with. I'm sure if he is in town he would want to come riding though.

Welcome, Kevin. All I can say is swing by when we meet sometime and see how it goes. There really isn't any smack talk unless you ask for it and no one gets pushed to go faster. Give it a try. It surprised me how fun it can be when you meet up with a bunch of other Monster riders.

Yeah I am excited to ride with some other ducati people, I just don't have any experience with riding in groups of more than 2. So I would have to learn how you guys do it etc.

no worries, just as long as you know where the throtle and breaks are you will be fine. ;D

in all honesty, not a big deal.

Just go last or second to last and mind your skill level. If you can't keep up, don't. However, it's a good way to pick up techniques (good or bad ::) ) and learn a lot. Plus, riders ahead point out roadkill, :police:, and other things that can affect your ride.
