    Now, you are making me nervous. Not very, though. In over 40 years of motorcycling, I have never been screwed by a fellow rider. My experiences, on both sides of the table, have been uniformly positive. It really is a brotherhood (personhood?).

    I don't even know Don's full name, address or rap sheet (I'm a former prosecutor, so that counts), but I was without hesitation in entrusting my bike to him. Stuff like this is just what our community does for its own. Thank God and thank you, my friends.

    not too long ago there was a huge ride here to the infamous Coke Ovens. A rider who I'd never me (hell, I'd never even heard of him on the site before) PM'd me about riding out there with him. He told me he was going to be at his son's house in QC and thought it would be nice for us to join troops instead of going solo. Turns out his son lives about 2 miles from me so I told him to stop by my place and we'd load up my bike in his truck the night prior.

    As I'm loading up my bike I start thinking in my head how crazy it was for me to be doing that with a total stranger of which I barely even remembered his first name. I even told him about it and we had a good laugh.

    But that's the type of place this is. All went well and we are now buds.

    Don, if the word gets out about the beer, you may have a shop full of resting bikes.

    Don, thanks for the loaner bike today. Had a blast! Don't worry, my dad's a tv repairman and has an awesome set of tools! He can fix it!
    Cheers! :evil

    Don is an awesome friend and brother. He had my bike ready to roll, and even waited after hours at his shop when my flight was delayed (4 freakin hours). My confidence was well placed. Thank you, Don.

    no problem, greg. i'm guessing you made it to colorado ok?

    jr, i don't know those places personally, but it sounds like a good deal, and they are close to the airport. let me know if you need any assistance.

    Safe and sound. I didn't see a cloud until Pueblo, and not a drop of precip at all. The bike was sweet. I only turned on the heated jacket liner twice, for a half hour each. 40 MPG too. Better than the usual. I managed to do less than 300 miles of super slab out of the 900 miles.

    Be well and prosper, my friend.

    i can relate to this. i have three motorcycles and a scooter in my motorcycle garage while my bikes are in my gf's garage. :)

    Hey Don, a clean, safe storage facility is all that i need. hopefully, drop the bike off and cab to the airport. heck, maybe i can plug it in too.

    any other advice for early June touring, grand canyon, zion annd monument valley?


    p.s. is this still you ? 602 451 8262, don

    I am in need of a storage facility near Phoenix airport. 5x10 ought to do it. My Gsa arrived today in Phoenix. Shipped down from up north. I will be there next week and require storage until spring. Obviously would rather pay a bit more to stay out of dodgy areas but for convenience an easy cab ride from airport and back would be the ticket. Any assistance would be appreciated. Also if there are any big bike friendly rides regularly scheduled I would love to be kept in the loop. Need some riders to lead my around the great state whenever I can get there for a visit. Thanks Jick

    I was going to contact Don (SeaBee) to ask him if I could give you his contact info, but he beat me to it. He picked up and stored my bike last year for a few months. Great guy and friend. When I offerred to take him and his wife to dinner as a thank you, any place they chose, they picked a family Mexican place that was way cheaper than I was willing to go. If he agrees to help you, you are in good hands..
