Having Fun in Northern Virginia

Hey people! Logged over 1000 miles on my '13 since October 13th. In 27 years of riding, this is the most fun I've ever had. Traded my 2001 Kawasaki ZRX1200R. That bike was powerful, but to have more power with modern electronics, brakes, and amazing handling is a new experience. AWESOME! I've also scraped the pegs on my 2002 Goldwing on the Dragon, and can't wait to try the Beemer this year.

Looking forward to superbike school and track days this spring too. This old dog can still learn new tricks and I want the most from my Beemer and skill set.

Anyone in the Northern Virginia area keeping their bike on the road this winter too?

Tony

I'll be riding Monday, have my kid this weekend too. Send me a private message if you wanna ride sometime. I've ridden all over the backroads, especially in Fairfax between Springfield and Manassass. Also, Route 211 over skyline drive and backroads around the Plains and Middleburg.
