Here in Utah we have few mosquitos except right next to lakes. A mile or two away and you won't have a problem because it is too dry. Anywhere in the Rockies you'll find biting flies if you get high enough. Snakes? Not in the cities but you might see them in the 'burbs or out on a trail somewhere.
The fuel injection is too lean on my new '15. Idk if it is a factory issue or an altitude issue. In theory, a carburetor gets too rich at higher elevations, so the mixture has to be leaned out to run best. Carbs meter fuel based on volume, but mixture is based on weight, so with the thinner air up high the mixture ends up rich. Fuel injection should compensate for elevation and temperature if it is properly programmed and if the FI system is properly adjusted to begin with.
Dropped my bike in the garage. Cracked the fairing where the front turn signal mounts. It doesn't show unless one looks closely, but I'll replace it when I can scratch up the $200 (ouch!).
