    This may be a long shot.
    My friend Thomas is coming out from Denmark at the end of March and wants to explore California and Nevada with myself and Colby (villageidiot). We're looking at options for him to either rent or buy a nice, reliable Airhead (because we both have them and makes on the road repairs easier). He's a classy Dane who has been riding mopeds and motorcycles for years and will probably bring you tasty Snaps, salty licorice and pickled herring for hooking him up. I look forward to your responses.

    This could indeed be epic.

    As nik said we are planning a trip in the end of march. I am from the cold"ish" northern part of Europe and wanna experience some american roads. I am a reliable rider, do not need to prove anything so i don't drive like shit and make stupid mistakes on the road. In Denmark i have a workshop with some friends where we do some spannering on bikes and are touring Europe.
    I would love to buy/rent a bike if possible. Most of the rental services i have checked is big Harleys and new stuff. I'm more into classics. BMW R65-75-80 series would be sweet, but just about everything is interesting. As long as its in an reliable condition,

    Thanks guys!

    Good luck, this sounds like the beginning of a great adventure. Do write it up and put it down in the Ride Reports section.

    However, this thread is starting out like one of those Bar Stories. You know, the ones that go: A vulture, the village idiot and the Devil walk into a bar and sit down. The vulture says... :lol3

    But seriously, good luck!

    When do you start selling tickets for this ride (they'd pay for the rental :deal)?

    For fun, here are some photos of Thomas and his gang's clubhouse/workshop I took last year when I was in Denmark. Anyway, we know renting a bike may be a long shot, but if you know of anyone selling let us know. Yes, we search all the forums for bikes, but if anyone has the inside scoop, let us know!

    I love that tshirt... Nothing like inviting friends to dinner - and then strip them naked in dices.
