I saw you....airhead

So there used to be a column in our local rag called "I saw you". It was usually someone seeing a good looking guy/girl out and about and wanting to meet up with them again. Entertaining to read, had a few friends addicted to it. It was free to post, so routinely we would take advantage of that to fuck with friends.

Anyway, it's also a useful tool to identify local people who share the same interests. So if you see an airhead fly by, shout here to see if they're an inmate

I saw you around 12 noon on 10/4 on glenwood ave Atlanta ga on a red toaster tank R75.

I see that red toaster all the time at Octane. My brother met him once...so he's around, not sure if he's on ADV.

there's a black /7 (i think) a few blocks up from me on my street (Allied Gardens/San Diego) I saw while walking the dog. Now I see him leaving for work fairly frequently:) I think I'll leave a note next time I walk past:)

E. Vancouver, WA. Saw an Airhead pulling into a driveway on 155th Ave. Not sure if he lived there or not, but if so, hope to see you out riding again soon, taking advantage of this lovely Fall weather.

I see a black /5 toaster with a gunfighter seat parked out front of a tattoo parlor on Lombard on the regular. I see newer airheads around town, but it's rare to see a /5. I think I've seen three total.

A couple weeknights I saw an airhead RS getting onto I-70 West from Earth City. Howdy if you're out there!

East High - Does it have brown grips? I think I might know the bike you're talking about....

I kept seeing a RT cruse past my house every few months. One day I caught sight of it in my rear view mirror as I was nearing my house. I rushed ahead, pulled into my house and run out into traffic and flagged him down . Turns out he lived a couple of miles away and now i have a local airhead buddy
