I'd meet you at the end and buy you a beer.

Me too?   :whistle:

Awesome...  :clap:

I took the King out for a good while today after I changed plugs and installed a few shiny bits.

It got up to 70 here today...predicting rain for tomorrow...

Took the truck to the golf show  ....   It was a bit chilly to ride in the wind (no shield/fairing/no plug in equipment) at the time I left.    Must be gettin' old.    :)

You need one of those $27.5K Ultra Glide Limiteds...

Inform the wife that you are getting one of those instead of a puppy..

When you told us you informed her you were getting another puppy, I was gonna ask you if I could have your Harley?   :hysterical:

I've often told her that if the bike could cook, she'd be gone.     :couch:

I'm guessing she had a couple of snappy comebacks?

She's at the point where she gives me the knowing "wife's shaking head" thing with an understated eye roll.    It's the silent "whatever".     :)

Accidentally set off the alarm while putting air in at at the service station...leaned on the fob.  Forgot how to turn it off.  Took a while to sort that out...  :mg:

Isn't all that glitzy paint work a little effeminate?  :couch:

(It's a beautiful bike.)

Don't know where else to ask this...

Is the DMV on Spring Break, and if so, is traffic any better than usual in and around the city?

Spring break in NoVa was last week.    Keep in mind the Cherry Blossom Festival is in full swing.    So, unexpected jams could occur, especially around the Tidal Basin (14th ST and bridge perhaps).    Parades and stuff are on the weekend.

That's what I was afraid of.  Getting to the Verizon Center on Saturday for a 12:30 puck drop with the parade going on may be somewhat interesting!   :(

Guessing I can stay on I-395 towards the Georgetown Law Center and come in from the east on H Street?

Thanks, mitlen...it's gonna be ugly...  >:(



Probably be lots of folks milling around Chinatown after the parade.    Weather's lookin' like a tourist's dream.
