Sun Aug 2 in the evening on the Memorial Bridge - GS with alum. boxes and rider in gray t-shirt. That's all I saw. He was moving like a rocket.

Saw BMW sport bike on 395 HOV lanes this morning, splitting traffic. Please be more patient, I was only 10 minutes later to work.

Reported to me by a Trucker friend; Sunday 9 August about 09:00 on RT 301 in Port Royal. Looked like a broken down Airhead with the rider... kneeling in prayer next to it. Been there.

Sunday 23rd, Eastbound MD77 thru Thurmont. Some pesky KTM kept following me, turned onto side road as I headed to a lunch stop. Once he yelled my name, I saw it was the esteemed Prez, Scott Keimig. We had a nice lunch, catching up on club stuff.

Glad you saw him, because he was missing somewhere else...

Today at Hunter Mill Rd and Sunrise Valley in Reston a blue R1150 RT. Looked like an 04. The rider was wearing tennis shoes.

2:20 PM today 95 Southbound in MD right around Rt. 175 or so. Creme colored (or a very pale yellow), R1200C, riding with someone who was not on a BMW, only caught the quick glimpse of the BMW roundel.

I was in the car, but just before 0800 saw a soldier on an airhead GS with aluminum side cases clearing the ID check at the Reese Road entrance at Ft. Meade. Hooah!

This morning around 8:10 I saw an Adventure GS with a custom plate "FARIGO" inbound on I-66 where the Dulles access road merges into eastbound 66. I wonder if his suit leaked like mine.

Not on the road, but during a house hunting expedition in Gambrills for a friend, I spotted a K1100 in the garage.
