Hello (again) from MD

Hi, I've been a member of the forum for about a month now but, in the last week, became an official owner of a 1992 Vulcan 750 (purchased from CRobins365). I am in the Gaithersburg area of Maryland and was wondering who else in the forum might be local to this area?


Adam

Hi, Adam! Welcome to the Forum - here's hoping you don't have to ask for any repair advice for many moons.

The Marylanders whose names I've seen before are GrayFox, Foxhound, TommyBoy, and...well, just me, I guess. Anyone else out there??

You can kind of add me to that list.

Not really a Marylander, but i'm inside the beltway (Falls Church, VA) so close enough, i guess.

Still new myself. Good luck with the bike and enjoy. You bought from someone who's very thorough with her maintenance/upkeep (with what i can see from the forums).

Maybe we should have sub-regions: Inside the Beltway, Outside the Beltway. Kinda links to "those who want to get out" and "those who are afraid to go in." I'm in the latter category.

LOL
I'm in the same category ("those who are afraid to go in") any time I start getting closer to Pittsburgh.

I'm not a fan of going inside the beltway, but my fear has been tempered. I have had several forays inside the 8 lane death strip on my baby and survived. In fact I had to go to Fairfax yesterday. Tomorrow I will be riding through the District of Confusion in order to meet an old ( haven't seen him since 1982 ) friend. He is staying out in springfeild. I'm planning on heading out by around 12 so I can be on the other side before rush hour madness. I live way down at the bottom of Calvert county. One of these days I need to host a forum party.

I'd probably be pretty scared of entering the beltway if i wasn't already inside it. Luckily, i've found navigable routes to and from places that aren't *that* full of stupid cagers. But depending on where in springfield i don't envy you.

Actually did a ride to jersey yesterday (will do the reverse tonight), the beltway was manageable at 2pm, only two people that didn't understand that yeah, i should get as much merge distance as a car.

I'm new to riding, just got my '93 from my better half. Getting it back in shape for riding and loving every minute of it. I'm located in Joppa between White Marsh and Aberdeen.
