140+ acres but most of it is too wet for camping much of the year. Better tent space closer to the house in my meadow; best to arrive in daylight so you don't set your tent up on a pile of sheep crap. Friendly dogs will kiss you enthusiastically, but only after eating sheep poop. Sheep start bellowing at 6am. Cell phone reception spotty and only if you stand on one foot and hop in clockwise circles while leaning to the left. Electric fencing for the sheep that you definitely don't want to piss on. Inmates welcome for a day or two, possibly longer if you have no undesirable traits.

On the plus side, beer, great coffee, shower, sometimes even a spare room, good conversation unless I've had a bad day at work in which case I'm socially inept. Have a pretty good assortment of tools including a tire changer. Generally have a few GS tires with 30% tread left if you need one in a pinch. Dealers for most brands about 40 miles away in Burlington VT. Plenty of great restaurants down in the valley a few miles away. One hill over from the Trapp Family Lodge, five miles to Smugglers' Notch and Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream. Wife worked in the tourism industry for 20 years so she knows all the attractions and I know pretty much all the local roads. Fellow sidecarists especially welcome.

Dirt road easily handled by everything but cruisers and monster touring machines with traction control. Think rural.

Did I mention the dogs?

I'm in

Bed, garage, whatever help you need.
In Sale, 2 hours east of Melbourne and gateway to the Victorian High Country or as we like to call it.... HEAVEN... Still got my house in Melbourne (for a while anyway) just off freeway 10 minutes from the heart of town so you can crash at either.
I had a great deal of help from ADVer's in the States when I blew my beemer up in North Dakota so only too glad to help with a bed in or out or some grass for a tent, assistance, full garage of gear a lot of enthusiasm and tons of love and respect for this site.

I'm in Starkville, Ms. I've got yard space, an extra room with a daybed (room for a blow up in the floor too), shower, and some garage space. I have access to plenty of tools and maybe even one grouchy old mechanic (not me He's not really a mechanic, but he's smart as they come, and knows motorcycles. Especially old airheaded beemers), and my wife is always happy to whip up a good homecooked meal, and maybe some cold n' tasty beverages. No kids, but we do have two dogs who would be most happy to meet ya. Best method of contact is by PM, where I'll happily share my info with ya.

UPDATED: November 2013

On US 29 between Greensboro and Danville.

Plenty of camping space, tools, tire changing facilities. Several flavors of dealerships within an hour away. Covered and garage parking. Indoor sleeping available if the weather's too bad. Might be a chance for a fire, a meal and some libations as well.

We can move the truck and tractor out and have room for 4-6 tents.

The deck is a work in progress, but would be a nice place to set up a tent if it was going to rain.

I'm about 5 miles outside of town, up Hwy 52 W toward Chatsworth. I've got a large finished basement with a couple of mattresses, it's own bathroom and a good view.

Awesome dual sporting area with great roads and trails in all directions. I actually live inside the Chattahoochee National Forest, the Cohutta wilderness is at the end of my street and you can ride to TN or NC on dirt.

A garage with tools and space for a bike or two.

I have 2 cats so if you're allergic it may not be a good choice. I'm a non-smoker so if you must it's gonna be outside no matter how cold it is.

I've got an extra bedroom w/a queen bed and a crash room upstairs w/a full size bed. Garage space for bikes. No need to camp! I do have a dog who sheds so if you're allergic, my place may not be ideal for you.

Yo dudes! I'm located just south of Socorro in San Antonio, NM 87801. Home of the 7th best hamburger in the country. Yes, its very, very good and only 6 bucks! Featured on many food shows, the Buckhorn is awesome road food and worth a bite if you're passing through.

I've got a lift, fully stocked tool cab, and can do some broken down recovery if you're really screwed. I have tent space in the back and two couches you're welcome to sleep on.

Tacoma, WA-- seven minutes from I-5. Three bedroom home in the suburbs. Close to supermarkets, Home Depot, Tacoma Screw (nut & bolt superstore), South Sound BMW, DMC Sidecars, and dealers for KTM, Suzuki, Honda, Yamaha, etc. Also close to Port of Tacoma for importing/exporting bikes by ship. Also no problem picking up or dropping off at SeaTac airport.

Amenities-- basic garage and metric hand tools; floor jack; flat bed trailer; spare beds--one queen and two singles, plus a sofa so I can host groups of 4 no problem; fenced backyard big enough for 2 small tents but so far all my tent space guests slept in the house; wi-fi of course.

Services-- if you need something for your trip or your bike, you can order it online and have it delivered here. I'll hold it for you. I'm retired, so usually available to help out inmates wherever whatever.

Warning: must like dogs!

I usually log in every day so send me a PM. If that doesn't work, call me -- 253.565.nineninetwosix -- and leave a voice message. If you want me to text you and not call you because you're riding, say that in your message. But I'm not listing my cell phone number here because I'm terrible at checking it.
