    Picked up a used BV350 for my wife.

    Trying to figure out to get it to Colorado, Fort Collins?
    Might just need it picked up for now atleast and maybe transport shortly...they will want it off their lot asap after the paperwork is done either way.

    I may fly and ride or do Uship if no one is coming this way, not sure?
    If you are, I'll get you some cash for the trouble, plus offer you lodging and advice if needed...and beer too.

    Thanks! Bill

    Hey, Bill.

    I did a run from San Jose, CA to Indiana for a guy who bought a baby GS from someone in CA. I have an Express moto van. Can provide references if we get that far. Also have a safe place to store the bike.

    You can PM me. I don't have plans to head over to CO (from NorCal) atm but if you are flexible on time then maybe I can **make** plans to hit up St George or other areas on the way back and make a trip of it.

    Bill,
    Pretty sure you can fly into Sonoma County Airport from Denver on United. The airport is very close to the dealer (assuming you mean the BMW dealer in Windsor). If they're giving you grief about getting it off the lot let me know and I can store it for you in Santa Rosa at The Motorcycle Shop.

    Yep it's the shop in Windsor that has it.
    Saw it on Cycletrader and made a deal.

    The sounded like they wanted it off the lot as soon as possible once the deal was done...I guess they have a small lot?

    I think they have at least 4 brands now that they are Eurocycle. Probably tight if they've taken in a lot of tradeins in the past few months.

    No, Brian Pecore is the owner.... He's been a fixture in the local motorcycle community for decades. We have an excellent service dept if you ever need work done. I 'm the other Brian. I do the ebay sales, fsbo bike sales and feed Yogi the shop dog..... :lol3

    Makes sense, sounds like they move alot of bikes.

    Still working on finalizing this deal, it's taking longer, but I may be getting closer to your offer.

    I'm heading out on Thursday to lead this tour to help out Alex... he's slammed.

    As such I also need to work on a Uship deal, but the final deal date is unknown and that doesn't work for shippers. I don't want to schedule a pickup before the deal is finished.

    If Santa Rosa BMW can hold it till I work out shipping then it's all good straight from them...but the devil is in the details.

    I got a good deal and they gave me a get rid of it price and thus their desire for it to be gone asap.

    I know shippers like to pick up from dealers vs private residences and that's why I appreciate your offer.

    I'll let ya know asap and I'll owe you!
    Give Yogi a pet from me :-)

    A guy posted in Vendors about offering to transport a bike in the Southwest. May want to check that out.
