    I’m in NOVA for work Mon-Thur, Reston specifically. I don’t think I’ve come across any ADV riders yet (no one’s given me the salute) and I’ve been commuting on the GS since April.
    Is there a favorite after work stop for any of you NOVA ADV riders? If so, where? Am I welcome?

    don't blame you... TRAFFIC I'm thinking I'll need to replace the clutch at each oil change, 10' stop...10' stop back & forth from the hotel to office

    I'm an honorary NOVA type- and NO, you're not welcome! But then, neither are any of us. Living here is a constant challenge. Steve-O's has been a meeting point in the past, but he's moving out to BBurg- so we're in need of a new gathering and wrenching local- does that hotel you're staying at have a bar by any chance? :evil FYYFF and Welcome to the Asylum.... I'll wave at ya if I get the chance. "Turn signals broken- watch for finger"!

    No bar, suggestions please...
    I did see a guy wrenching on an old Honda V65 Magna in the parking lot so it really should have a bar for emergency purposes

    My little red F650GS is parked in Fairlakes during the day. I commute from Leesburg.
    I saw a very nice Bumble Bee with corbin seats on Rt 28 on Monday afternoon...was that you?
    BTW, Tuskies in L'Burg is where the Guiness is on draft.[​IMG]

    I'm suprised I haven't passed you, the hotel I stay at is in Fairlakes

    I ride a black 95 GS & it probably doesn't qualify as "very nice" anymore

    Guiness on draft... Time? Directions? I'l be there

    Two thumbs up for Tuskies.
    Been to the Magnolias in Purcellville yet? Same owners, maybe a little more upscale and lots of different beers. :slurp

    I'm up and down the Greenway and Dulles toll road about 9 days a week on a silver GS with a Pelican top case.
    Gotta love the HOV! I’ll keep an eye out for you. :wave

    Sounds like a plan. I'll be there tonight. They've got some "Belgian Beer Dinner" scheduled for 7pm. I'll be the one wearing a silver helmet. Hope the beer is good. Might have to chase them all with a Guinness. :slurp

    I’m out, heading south in about 45min

    Glockenspiel- if know one else can make it give us the scouting report & maybe we can plan an attack for another night…

    cheers... :freaky

    Ok, I checked the crystal ball. . .

    Thursday, the 17th, is the day you'll find a cute red F650GS and pretty cool looking dk red R1150R.
    We'll be testing the draft guiness at Tuskies in Leesburg. [​IMG]

    Anyone else interested?
