I know a few of you guys are from the area. So who all is around and what you into?

I ride an evo daily to work but have a kickstart ironhead hard tail as my toy.(still a work in progress)

Well from the lack of replies I guess I'm about the only one who likes choppers here.

I love the area and the mountains but I was born and raised in the mountains here so I may be biased. Where are you at now?

Not sure if you'd like it or not then. All depends on if you like the city life or not I guess. I hunt, fish and basically do all the redneck shit so I'm in heaven where I'm at.
