Welcome to the forum Oatsie. I commute to DC from Bowie. Get that bike on the road and maybe I'll see you around town. Since I started riding my bike to work the beltway traffic never gets me down.

yes! she is at Precision as we speak, as i dropped her off saturday. Tom, the owner, is putting her up on the lift tomorrow(they are closed today). we looked into the gas tank and it was a good sign he said. new battery is going to be needed and the carburetor cleaned-up. then, we'll see what we must do next. waiting for the MVA to get back to me on their tutorial classes in Largo. yes i intend to drive her all over.. :71baldboy:

Grew up in Bethesda MD. If you can ride in DC, you can ride anywhere.

Be careful out there, the concentration of morons are greatest inside the beltway (we don't really need further proof of that, do we?)....:)
