If you come up, you know the drill.

There is also that more chopper oriented show out at the Expo center near Dulles (at least it's close to the South Riding Inn)

I may be working the show. Don't know for sure yet. If not, I'm in for Saturday.

Maybe I should skip the show and just drink with Phil and G-M-Gun. After all, I don't need any accessories and I can't buy a new bike since my furnace decided to take a shit and die. $4k down the toilet (yep that was my dirt bike fund). (At least my house didn't burn down and I didn't die of CO poisoning).

I was driving the truck into work the other day (First time in months) and the damn motor blew up! I may skip the show too. Last year was only ok because I was drunk. I should just drink with you guys.

Damn. I'm glad you're OK.



The more I think about the opportunities to recycle some higher-quality beverages, the more I think I might not ride up.



Go ahead ...

Damn, you and 2ndspace are having way too much fun. When it was the coldest a couple days ago his upstairs heat pump quit and the bottom one started acting up - so much for buying a new house.

Thought of you last night as we meandered past Hamilton to Round Hill. Had a great show while picking up pizza at Jose's (Percellville) - El Sal bunch - great pizza, just be patient.

Aaaaahhhh.... visions of trying to park an F150 supercrew in a parking garage is running through my head all of a sudden.

It was damn cold last year, it made MY "nuts" hurt to see you guys on 2 wheels.

Hopefully we'll be able to come this year again... either by Metro or smaller vehicle. :)
