Black XR4Ti spotted around 5:30 PM today (December 4, 2017.) It must be a local.

I don't know anyone in the area with a black one that is running.

To be honest, I didn't think there was anyone on the list that lives in C'bus but me.

Edit: King Fisch travels between St Louis and Pissburgh pretty frequently and has a black XR.

If you see a red 87 with Pony wheels in Dublin, that's me. ;)

White mono one would be mine, but this time of year it stays in the garage and I don't often go any further than Polaris.

There's a whole lot of reasons to go there. Graeter's might be at the top of the list.
