DMV Rats

Any Truimph riders in our nations capital area? I’m a modest Street Twin owner who’s down to get out and ride.

I’m in Calvert country MD and visit the Chesapeake Cycles Triump shop just west of Annapolis, if you’re interested and/or are looking for a bike.

I’ve seen a couple good routes to ride in the greater area, on other apps and web sites.

Right on!

I’ve been looking at Sky Line Drive, as a day trip. About two hours (for me) to get there. About three hours to drive it, south. Then, I reckon about about 3-4 hours to get back home.

All this depending on weather and traffic.

Bump from another Springfield resident. Not sure if you made it down Skyline (the weather has been absolute garbage) but I did not find it to be worth the trip when I took my car on it several years back. The Blue Ridge Parkway is much better (and free!) but even further away. Would make for a pretty grueling day trip just to get there and back (about 2 1/2 hours each direction just to get to the BRP.) Still, riding it is on my bucket list. If riding it is like driving it, the miles just disappear.

I've gotten to take my Speed Triple out all of once since I bought it with all of this weather. It has been a bummer. It's nice to see another owner in the Springfield area. I haven't been to Skyline Drive yet, but I grew up right off of the BRP in the Bedford, VA area, and rode a good portion of it on my old Ninja 250 a few years ago. It's a really nice ride, but the speed limits, police, and sightseers can bog it down occasionally.

If we ever see the sun again we will have to meet up and ride out some time.
