LAST mintute ADV happy hour tonight, meet ADV Harti

Sorry for the very late notice but it was unexpected meeting.

Fellow ADV'er Harti is back in DC from Germany, last summer he rode the TAT and then proceeded back home to Germany via Siberia, Mongolia, the stan countries and eastern europe, so truly an epic adventure. Come drink a beer if you can to Aria, R. Reagan plaza, Federal Triangle metro stop 4:30-?. Update- may switch venue to Elephant and Castle to sit outside, 1 blk away 1200 Penn Ave. so check both.

Harti's ride report here http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=750189

Been awhile Scott. Good to see you posting again. I was getting ready to call and see if you had fallen of the face of the earth.
I hope you and Sue are doing well. Very nice photos!

No, haven't gone yet. Was waiting for a proposal award notification (which could really impact my time off . . . .) but that keeps getting slid to the right.

Spotted on Sunday

Didn't get a chance to post this until now - saw a group of 3 (?) dualsports around Ashburn Sunday afternoon turning onto Waxpool Road from Waxpool Rd (yes, pretty sure that is how the intersection is set up...) One person on a Suzuki I think, didn't really get a good look at the others.

Was it anyone on this list? I was on my way home on my still unproven Husky 450, which confirmed that status by stalling out so many times on the way home that the battery died and I had to call for a pickup within 5 miles of my house. Time for some fiddling before the next ride...

Any inmates we know?

Do you own a KTM 950/990?

I'm in the market for another bike and I've found this '06 KTM 950 that looks interesting. However it's down in Georgia. While I've ridden a lot of different bikes, I have yet to try out a KTM 950 or 990. So my question to those who own one of these beautiful machines is would you let me take yours for a little test spin to see how the bike fits me and if it's worth me investigating further? I'm currently living up by Annapolis, MD but I come down to work in Newington (right by Springfield) every day.

If you can help, please PM me.

Thanks,

Denis.

All is well in ARL. Cycling more than moto recently but sure saves $ and the planet. This just means I'm overdue for a long ride to nowhere.
