OK, I think this thread needs another bump, so I'll post my 13 Glide down in Eastern Market in Detroit.
That area didn't exist as an art district when I lived out there. The new baseball stadium had just been built when I left there. I'm sure that sparked a lot of new in-town small businesses. I lived in Broomfield from roughly 1986 - 1997. Colorado is one of the states I lived in that could have easily been my permanent home had I not had to move for my career. I have fond memories of Colorado - especially the mountain pass riding. I moved from there to northern Illinois (Rockford). Flat as a pancake and nothing to see except corn and sugar beets for as far as you can see, once you get outside the city. The people and the new job were the only things I found redeeming there. I sold my bike and bought a boat.
