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?

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

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.
Forget having to worry about the crazy people in cars, WATCH OUT FOR THE BUSSES!!

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 in Germantown and commute daily to the "inside" - aka downtown D.C. Welcome to the forum Adam.

I'm just down 270 a short jaunt.
In the Silver Spring zip code but the north-west side.
I occasionally ride with a friend from Monkey Village ;-)

I'm also new to riding and recently picked up an '01. I live in Elkton (Cecil County) but can throw a rock into Delaware from my house. I drive to DC a lot on business in my van but can't see myself doing it on my bike for a while. Gets a little crazy down there even with metal around you. Take care.

I took my riding course at Harley Davidson in Eldridge. Enjoying the bike and will enjoy it more when I can get the sitting around for 10 years bugs out of it...I'm close to getting it totally done but that doesn't stop me from riding. Take care and safe riding.
