I know the park you're talking about. But no, the bridge in the picture is Rt 56 where it crosses the James River at Wingina.

Rt56

I know where that is - sometimes take that route from home out to
the mountains. Nice pic.

we've got some land out in Amherst couny, off Route 60 east of the parkway.
We try to alternate our routes out for variety - 56 is a nice road.

Storymitchell, I didn't know there were any woods left in McClean! Nice looking back yard! Nice sidecar rig too. Especially for the low investment.

Nice rig SM- Hope less shit falls off of it than your last endeavor~ I'm really curious about sidecars- followed one through CT once- it was a K1100 with a sidecar that leaned with the bike- looked like the passenger was having most of the fun in that scenario~ One of these days. Nice Job- can't wait to see it.

I'd suspect this one is going to shed bits and pieces as well . I gotta stop buying bikes with "personality". But I'm having fun and that's what matters.

EAP: As it doesn't look like any Virginia plans have firmed up, it looks like I'm going to meet a couple of people from the DC Vintage BMW motorcycle club at the Red Hot and Blue on RT 50 just east of Annapolis at 11AM today (Saturday) and then head over to the World Championship Punkin Chunkin in Nassau, DE (http://www.punkinchunkin.com/). I don't think I'll actually pay to get into the punkin chukin event, but it's a chance to get out and ride places I don't normally ride. If you want to swing by the Red Hot and Blue and take the rig for a spin, you're welcome to do so.

NOTE: This assumes that I can get the bike started! For some reason the previous owner took the choke lever off so the bike is a bit tough to start when it's cold outside.

Oh geeze - I lost the final drive breather cap on the way to Annapolis and manged to coat the back of the bike with gear oil. Could have been worse, I guess, but I have a whole bunch of degreasing to do now!

Dude, do you have an aversion to newer bikes that actually get you smoothly from point A to B ???

And you base that comment on Harv's experience? Or Phil2's? I gave a lot of thought to a UJM, but I like cars and bikes with some personality. At some point I'll buy a newish rice burner, but I'm not that old yet.

Nah- you're doin' fine. It's less of an adventure when nothing goes wrong! Onya, Mitchell
