Where are you getting it?

Just kidding, mang.

I'm jealous. I'll accompany you on your first ride, if you like.

Dude - I'll ride with you anytime.

The bike wasn't purchased at Coleman's and likely WILL NOT go there for service. I've heard soooo much bad that I'll likely trailer it to Moto Europa in Richmond just to avoid Coleman's.

Yeah, we need to get together. I rode 619 from 234 down to Rt 1/Quantico for the first time after hearing you talk about it a while back and was flabbergasted. For a road so close to home it was quite enjoyable. I've never seen so many blind turn/hill combos in Prince William County. I'd been on the other end of it from 234 towards Manassas/Haymarket, but that part pales in comparison.

Yup - excellent section of road. Gotta' watch the idiots. They tend to scoot towards the middle to "apex" some of the corners. I've had to give the WTF ? look/hand signal to a couple morons that squeezed me.

And I'm 100% convinced on some of those whoops I could launch my KTM if I knew the road ahead were clear.



Yell if you are down in F'burg. Coleman's sucks but I'll ride with ya. Hahah.

I am 100% convinced that some of those whoops can launch my ZRX.
