    Might also look for the "scratch and dent" stuff at local retailers.

    There are some local "dealers" who may have it in stock, check the amsoil website. I still have a case on my shelf if you need a few quarts to get you by.

    If nothing else closer pans out, GRD Cycle in White Plains, MD should have it.

    The Advance Auto in Dahlgren carries Amsoil motorcycle oil. I think below list.

    Yes, a happy new year's to all! Ride safely.

    In that spirit, had a chance to install this year's Christmas farkle. Should make low temp rising much easier and the increased visibility can't hurt!

    ^ looking good!

    Saw an R1200GS and F700GS parked outside Misha's Coffee in Alexandria around 4:30. Anyone on here?

    Happy New Year, NoVA peeps!

    Does it have to be Amsoil? If not pretty much every Advance Auto store carries Mobil 1 20W-50.

    I was trying to save on shipping if possible. my K bike has almost 56k on it on and the previous owner used Amsoil. I know I don't "have" to use Amsoil but I still want to. I know that anyone who buys 2 cases is considered a dealer. when you go to their site and type in locations, it shows a bunch of people who have obviously done this. seems like I'd call someone only to find they'd bought it a couple of years ago for themselves. anyways I went ahead and directly ordered 4 quarts from Amsoil and paid almost $60 with shipping :eek1. thanks to everyone who replied to my question.

    The Advance Auto in Dahlgren had it for about $10.50 a quart. Our local NAPA is $12. Go figure. You can pay $20 a year and be a preferred customer and buy from the distribution center. I did this for a year when I made regular trips though Richmond. It is near the airport. I stocked up.

    Olympus auto parts in NOVA has a couple cases of the 20w50 in Alexandria (give or take 24 bottles) for 11.66 that they can transfer to any other Olympus location.

    (Down for the count until I can get the place where the Beast's left valve cover screws into the cylinder re-threaded so he no longer tries to help us elude pursuit by spewing oil out that side.)
