Demo Truck is Coming!!!

Yamaha Demo Truck is coming to Falls Church, VA on 9/26 and 9/27. I am going to ride the FJR1300ES (potentially my next addition to the stable) and the Super Tenere just for kicks.

I can not wait! Not many things will get me to take time off work because of my vacation balance situation (long story), but I will take a day off then so I can be there early. Everything I have read and heard about the FJR has been glowing...I hope it lives up to the hype for me. The other bike competing for this space in my garage is the Ducati Multistrada, which I understand is not a bad choice either.

Hopefully the rides will cover an adequate amount of time and miles.

John

I found out about this specific one from the dealer email, but you can go to the Yamaha site and look-up your area - http://www.yamahamotorsports.com/sport/yamahaevents

John (the OP) - I plan to go also, but don't get too excited about the ride. I just did the Zero demo days at Coleman's and it was pretty short. Hopefully the Yamaha guys will pick a better/longer route.

Are you going on Friday or Saturday? I am planning to be there at 10:00 on Friday.

Let's hope for a good route...

I plan on being there at 10:00 on Friday also. This new company I just started with is moving that weekend, so I'm going in later on Friday since I know I'll be working well into the evening and all day Sat.
