Need to rent a road bike DC-->CT & back this wknd

Any suggestions? Google results are full of Eagle Rider outfits, but it looks like they're all booked. I need a highway bike to run up there Sat afternoon, return Sun afternoon. Thanks for any ideas!

The croton location appears to have some. Crofton is a few miles north of RT 301/RT50.

Thanks for the tips guys!

...Road Kings and a couple Softails out there...would like to find something a bit more, um, nimble, and a bit less, er, underpowered. :-) HDs ain't changed much since I sold them back in 06! OTOH it looks like if I drive to Crofton (B'more really) I might could get a Honda ST1300, which would be pretty nice I reckon.

Alternative is just getting blown around on the X-Country and stopping for gas all the time. If traffic is terrible, the X-Co would actually be a good solution.
