    Having still never even ridden in another 40 I think it would be cool to see the differences in upgrades, suspension etc.

    would REALLY be curious to feel power steering on a 40.

    Anyone want to escape family and talk cruisers for a bit this weekend?

    I'm in marshall, Va. about. like i said about 1.5hrs west of DC. i'm 5 minutes off of I66. Heres an idea, we could meet at 4x4 connection in winchester. or is that to far. i'm about 30-45 min. from them, never been though.

    Cruiserhead, was that you a while back that wanted to see the nardek carb run?winchester is a bit far for me and i'd end up making almost a day of it when it could be a day of wrenchin... and there is always wrenchin to be done. c'ville, leesburg seems to be a central local for all of us, sweetwater for a beverage...

    ehh.. i don't use no stinkin maps unless they are a topo. if you coming from marshall.. points west, take 66 east to 28 north and then rt 7 east and it's a mile or two in the right. if your coming from the city take toll rd to 7.. and it's way out ther on the left.. sunday it is.. i'll see if I can corral some club members as well.
