And just to confuse us, if you try to find this on a Garmin map, the post office is STERLING, not Dulles! :shock:

I don't know the answer, but I would think the correct thing to do would be to haul out any oil you change and not expect the host to deal with it. IMO, that's asking a bit too much. =D>

ela, I have to speak with my neighbor, but I think he will take the spent oil.

Yes, for the GPSers it is Sterling (zip code 20166). They changed our post office (hence the change in name), but we are VERY close to Dulles Airport.

For now plan on hauling, but I am fairly certain he (my neighbor) will want the spent oil.

As far as space we have a large flat driveway and three car garage, there is plenty of street parking with very little traffic.

The key is to avoid the toll, there is a very expensive toll on 267 near my house. You're GPS will route you to use the toll almost every time. The key is to use VA 28 N to Old Ox Road West (Sterling). That one mile extra on 28 will save you over $5. The other method to avoid the toll is to use the Airport Access road (go through the airport as if to return a rental car) to get to Old Ox Road; however, in order to make the use of that road legal you have to conduct a business transaction at the airport. i.e. get gas or a snack at the Exxon.

I don't have much in the way of extra tools, I can do all my own maintenance including manual tire removal with the tools I have for an F650GS and R1200GSA. But I don't have a tire changer or anything fancy like that. What I lack in tools I make up for in space. So Chetna and I look forward to having each of you come out.

What are the hours? I could also use some help (smaller hands) isolating a lose connection to headlight (L/H) bulbs (R1150 RT-P).

Anyone going to George's BUA place this week in the NOVA area?

Also - anyone going to the tech day need the GS911 to be there?

Okay thanks - the GS911 is making it's way there - it was brought down from MD and dropped off at George's place (BUA) and so I'm working on getting it from his shop to Matts house :D
