This morning, 810am, Falls Rd (MD-25) and Gunpowder Rd
Silver K1600, PA Tag, Rider in black, turned from Gunpowder onto southbound Falls Rd, behind me (silver Subaru Crosstrek).
Lost you after Mt Carmel Rd intersection, after your dual pass on double yellow. (clear stretch that should allow passing, BTW)
Zippy. (Keep an eye out for BoCoPoPo - they have been on Falls Rd in that stretch 3 of the last 6 weekday mornings. This morning they were busy with the accident just above Mt Zion Rd.)

Sunday 2/19/17 11:30AM Middletown MD. Saw 2 GS pulling into a gas station as Deb & I were about to pull out. Had a sense I might know them - took their helmets off and, yep, sure enough it was Potter & Taylor stopping for lunch on their way to Michaux.

That was me! I was on my way to view the Total Eclipse in Nebraska and then to visit my daughter in Colorado. I made it from Fairfax to Moline, Il (almost Iowa) that first day. I know it's not a lot for the Iron Butt Riders in the club but it was a long day for me! 8)

By the way, the Beemer is grey. The brown is dirt. :lol:

Tonight on the Beltway outer loop crossing the American Legion Bridge, I saw a GS rider with a familiar license plate. I think it said "FARIGO" and I am sure I have seen it before. Cannot remember the name...

Today around 10 AM at the light at Hunter Milll Rd and Sunrise Valley, a white late model R1200 RT was stopped behind me. I did not recognize the rider so I quickly pulled out one of or Club Business Cards and gave it to the rider.

Monday (OCt 8) afternoon - Blue White GSA Wet head with young pillion passenger. We passed each other twice: old one hundred road going opposite directions) and then going East on Middle Brook and spoke briefly at a traffic light. I, on my Titan Silver GS Wethead. A great day for riding all in all especially out in the Catoctin MR area!
