    One caveat, I will take spacewife's cage outa the garage to make room, but my bikes have first dibs on stayin warm and toasty. Could probably fit four or five in with no problem (unless we have to work on Freak's bike again).

    Oh, and I like my tire warmers set to "Toasty."

    :flip :lol2

    I have a new battery, thank you.

    but it is a thought. we could raid your booze locker again :evil

    but, I'm not going to take a train to a bike show. :nono I have a disk lock. and I'm sure me and Jay can come up with a chain and lock to tie the bikes together in a parking spot.

    anyway there's nothing like flying down the slab at 80mph when it's 20 degrees :thumb and you call yourselves adventure riders :rolleyes taking a train to a bike show :bash :rolleyes

    You mean you have a Gerbings jock?:evil

    If everybody is parked and ready to leave my house by 1015, we should be able to make Fado's by 1130 if we catch the 1035 blue line train:
    Then is a .1 mile walk to Fado's.

    Does this make sense to you :ear

    Are you guys kidding me? It's DC. NW DC. Not the hoody-hood. No need for chains, locks, guns, etc. Hell, I work 2 blocks from there.

    11:30 Fado. Can do. (BTW, fellas, Dc-cycles is meeting at Hooters. What's up with us?)

    As for Hooters, wouldn't you think this bunch would have entirely too much class to go to a place like that:evil

    I'm going to be working the "Ride To Work" booth on Friday. I'll scope things out and see if I can post any "things ya gotta see" pictures on Friday evening. Or would this be spoiling the surprise for the rest of you?
