It didn't take me long to figure out who the maniac honking & waving at me was :)

Glad to see I'm not the only psycho that goes to work so early in the morning!

Someone passed by on 15S as I was refueling in Lucketts VA around noonish. Blue BMW. I think an K or R (S) with a few years on it. I was returning home from MA.

A good spotting day yesterday, on MD Rt 32 just south of Sykesville. First, an R1200GS Adventure waiting at the light just south of I-70. Two minutes later, a blue R1150RT followed by a red F650GS thumper. And two MORE minutes later, two K1200LT's, the first sporting a very nice sidecar!

I keep seeing a blue R11xxRT with a cover on it in the parking lot outside my building near the intersection of Glebe & US 50. Never seen the rider, though.

Spotted what I believe was a red 650GS that I passed on 97N just as I took exit 15B to the BWI Airport Loop. Bike took the exit as well... and "followed me" onto Dorsey Rd and Aviation Blvd before turning onto Hollins Ferry Rd.

Made me wish I had rode the bike to work today. :(

Cheers,
Jim

Pulled up to a beautiful burgundy K1200GT this morning on Route 1 in Fredericksburg. I was almost at work but was right next to him at a light. Nice bike!

Last Friday, 5/6/11, on southbound Rt 2 (Ritchie Hwy) at Rt 50 exits, two R1200GS's. Both riders wearing hi-vis yellow jackets.

Monday, May 9, 2011 about 12:20 P.M. - northbound B-W Parkway in Laurel area: Black K1200S with (possibly) Givi bags and top case and red strobe light to assist brake light. Looked like a DOD parking tag mounted on the left fork. The rider was wearing a silver helmet and black jacket.

We were caught in the traffic jam caused by a downed motorcycle.

Yes! Somebody finally spotted me! I'm so freaking stoked! The nasty yellow tank is unmistakeable. Where you stuck in traffic heading southbound?

Who is this, btw? I have trouble remembering screen names to real faces sometimes. :D
