I live just over the line in Seekonk, Ma. I just finished my first build. You can check it out in my posts. Yes, they are a buttload of fun and I drive mine everywhere. As far as R.I. laws, their a little stricter than Ma. Here's the link with R.I. laws.http://www.dmv.org/ri-rhode-island/other-types.php
If you're close in R.I., hit me up.
