LT Sighting near Fairfax, VA

This evening around 7.15PM. Canyon Red (I think, becuase, I was pulling down the helmet flip and the sun was in my eyes) K1200 LT southbound on the County Parkway near Rugby Road. I was northbound on the CR LT (Twin USA flags attacjed on the radio/CB antennae).

We both waved at each other!!

If you are ever on the dreaded 66 commute around 6 - 6:30am, watch for a silver streak - more often just look for the crawl.

Born and raised in Fairfax. Grew up in Pine Ridge just of Prosperity Avenue. Last lived in Manassas and did the commute to DC down 66. You are either a very brave person to do that on a bike or have a death wish. Gotta tell you I love living in Kentucky with all the hills and curves and alot less assholes on the road.
Good luck!!!

No death wish, just sick of an 1:45min - 2:15 commute, HOV takes about 50 - 1:10min. Gas costs $15 instead of $70. I rode a Vulcan 1500 that really sucked on the ride, so I bought a bike that would be a pleasure and the brakes are AWESOME!!! I ride like I have a bobble head, look out for the make up appliers, Moms in mini vans and Excursions and the 70K+ cars because they have more right than you to be on the road . But I put the sidecar on for the weekends and take the family for cruze in the Shanandoahs - makes life here a little better.

Smart move to get the heck away from here. Picture 6800 family units around Nissan Pavilion.
