Monday morning I caught the bus to the Roslyn Metro Station and decended into the underworld. And came out by the Mall. Crossing the Mall to the Natural history Museum. I checked out the dinos the this and that unending , then went to the Science and Industry Museum and did more of the same. There were a few bikes in here. Shows we have evolved beyond the Dino's, maybe ? The most important stuff in all of America is in the Smithsonian. Van Halen's ax, Tony Hawk's board and Farrah's nipple. I made in the door of the Air and Space Museum only to be turned around and shown the way out. You don't have to go home. you just can't stay here. My dogs were aching from the museum shuffle so when Speedy Pete offered a ped cab ride for $5 I was game. Here we are on the inagural parade route on Pennsylvainia Ave. Speedy Pete droppped me near the White House. The closest road to the South side was blocked off. Then after a bit a bunch of sirens fired up and off drove the Pres in a limo convoy led by seveal cop cars. As I walked around to the North side I called my buddy Ratt in Hawaii. I was in conversation with him about his trip when I interupted him to say I was seeing something new. Cop Sportsters. The guy on this bike heard me and laughed. These are Secret Service cop Sportsters, I learned. Serveing and Protecting one and all. The W.H. There's a star walk, but only 20 or so stars on it. So I grabbed a sandwich and multiple Yeunglings the caught the Metro back to Arlington.
