Hey Easygojo, I had the same feelings when I bought mine and I was only 20miles from home. I wanted to read the owners manual, ride it around the yard etc... I borrowed a pick up truck and bought some straps at the dealership for around twenty five dollars. They loaded it on the truck with a ramp, tied it down and sent me on my way.The tailgate wouldnt go up but it wasnt a problem.I just backed up to my porch when I got home, stacked some random bags of feed to make the drop off more gradual and rolled it off the back of the truck. I'm getting more addicted ever time I take it out now. It defiantly reawakened some sense of freedom I'm loving this bike.
