I'm in Utah. I guess saying it changed my life is inaccurate, its more like it fit into exactly what I like doing, tearing down things, checking out the moving parts, disassembling, replacing, fixing..etc. I always wanted a bike, and now that I have one I guess it just allows me to focus on something I knew i'd enjoy. There's nothing like putting something back together and then getting on it to make it rumble.
Currently its not running though, so I have to work on that ha.
