Fuck that guy, there's no excuse for taking on the responsibility and fucking it up for everyone, especially poor Bacon who HAS to be sick and tired of being on Pacific Time..... fucking california.... would you like to know how I really feel?

I am leaving Sunday AM from Chicago have 16 days to wander, and will Iron Butt it to pick him up and pass him to anyone in Mountain time... I could be in San fran in 2.5 days.... you know, pick him up, ride, and PASS him....


BTW,
Nice work scott!
jakethewonderpup is no asshole, just got busy and priorities change, give him a break he tried to hand bacon off to lisa and simon who have been, well almost everywhere on 2 wheels and are still going.

I will be in benton hot springs on the 27th staying over night and then down to mammath lakes. If I grab him monday and someone wants to take him east, have at it.......

I can understand the protective nature but lets keep it civil too all in it together.......

Maybe the martini's got to me.... sorry.
None the less it's nothing personal to whoever had him and disappeared, just sayin'.
I was planning on wandering around utah, colorado, wyoming, montana, idaho, etc, but like I've said, I'll ride to where ever and pick him up and take him to someone that can confirm they are in one of those states and then heading east. Someone's got to be in one of the FIVE states in the next week heading back east....
I could be in cali on tuesday, wednesday at the latest. I sold my car, quit my full time gig, stored my stuff, and I'm not coming back to Chicago this year or I could take him further east.
Anyone?

I will post in the west forum if anyone is heading east and wants to take him. My big ride is in sept and I know you don't want to wait that long!

Will post some pics when he is safe!

It's not just me who doesn't want to wait... bacon came to me in a dream and told me he wanted to see the rest of the U.S. and then get to Europe where the girls might not have bikini tops on at the beach

Maybe post in the east forum to see who's coming out west then going home....

Anywhere from Glacier to Moab and I can meet someone after picking him up, but I'm not going to Cali unless there's someone I can meet to pass him....

Who was the rider from Alaska?

All I know (late into the game) is that I have a couple of options.
1. MojaveGS can take bacon cross country from mojave to virginia in the next few weeks or
2. Maddbrit can take bacon with him up to glacier park and out to the MOA ralley in July

Or someone comes and gets him in cali?

Should have bacon Monday.....

Really hope my buddy Bacon makes it here. I've got a 165mph race car ride waiting for him, among other things (don't underestimate the sneekiness).

If Bacon makes it to Alaska I am more than willing to show him around a bit. I won't be leaving the state this summer though, so we'd have to have someone for me to hand him off to.

Talking Porker FOUND!

Bacon is alive and well in the bay area, got a msg from jakethewonderpup. He's been incommunicado for a bit, but still in the game.

I'm leaving MT today to northern cali and we're trying to set up a meet. If anyone is going to be on the route from norcal to mt I'd be happy to pass the pig (if I get him).

I'll be on the road all week so I'll be able to check the site on wed.

Peace.

I am meeting JTWP this morning to pick up the wee fellow. Let me know your plans I will be leaving friday for a weekend in east CA near Mono lake and Mammoth for the norcalbmw meeting.

Well as luck would have it I was typing this and I get a call!

Guess who?



















































Safe and sound and no worse for wear. The log book has a few pages bleeding through, so I am going to scan them for record just in case.

Sent ya a PM, but that is out of the way for me as I am heading over Sonora pass towards mono lake this Friday. Don't have any days off before that to ride up to you. I guess the plan on handing bacon to Maddbrit is the best plan and he can deliver him along the way to the MOA rallye in July

I'm in Sacramento and am heading for India in 3 weeks but it seems that Bacon wants to spend more time in North America. There's room for him though.
