    Sold my V45 on eBay and the buyer needs to get it from central Michigan to Salt Lake City area. Any takers?

    Bought a small bike in Ceder Fall Iowa. Anyone traveling from up there to the panhandle of Florida or lower Alabama. Another possibility would be Barbers vintage festival in Birmingham Al. Gas and beverage money of course.

    I have decided that trips with my family need to be higher priority. I have a rocking wife (Mala Bunny) who rides, and an awesome son (Alex, AKA Minion Rabbit) who wants to share the adventures. So, next summer, I'm taking my son along for a proper ADVRider style adventure. We are going to truck the bikes from N.E. Ohio to Denver, and do a loop of Colorado. We'll do the cross country drive just like we do the run to Baja, switching drivers and keep on rolling.

    A rough itinerary:


    • Pre-load bikes and gear on Tuesday night June 30th, 2015
    • Leave home Thursday evening, July 2nd after work
    • Arrive in Denver on Friday July 3rd, parking truck at arranged storage for a week.
    • Saturday the 4th to Friday the 10th gives us 7 days to ride a loop around the state and return to Denver. We can use a mix of BDR routes and other stuff, make it fun but not too tough.
    • Saturday the 11th pack truck and leave for home.
    • Sunday the 12th back home.

    Being as how we have this big ass truck (see below), I'm throwing it out to the asylum to see who else may want hauled out to Denver to enjoy a week of riding. I have at least 1 interested part already, but I can haul more bikes than people. If you have an interest in riding Colorado for a week, but want to skip the boring drive across the plains states and fly into Denver to hop on your bike (we will take your gear as well), then put your bike back on the truck a week later and fly home, it can be arranged. Basing our truck in Denver gives anyone interested the ability to really make the week of riding your own, just have the bike back at the truck a week later and have fun in between.

    I may have a seat in the truck available as well, but have to offer it to friends first.

    Am I missing something here. Where are you leaving from or are you willing to pick up cycles at or along the way. Maybe I missed your location??

    Well, I suppose NEO seems obvious to those of us who live in North East Ohio, by may not be quite so obvious to the rest of the world. Apologies. And yes, would be happy to pick up in Illinois.

    Long shot but.....

    Any chance anyone is towing / trucking out to the East Coast with room for a small dirt bike?

    I have my eyes on a small XR200R and am looking for a way to get it out here.....

    Have looked at UShip but have not been able to find a quote for less than $400..

    Thought I might ask around here just in case.

    Thanks!

    I may need a bike transported from the Flint, MI area between now and summer if anyone is headed down south (I'm in N.C.) that could help me get it down here. Yes, I know I can pay a shipper to do it, but I'd rather pay a fellow ADV member to do it if I can.
    I'd be willing to meet most anywhere close to N.C. - I just don't want to do a fly-n-ride all the way from Flint, MI.
    Please drop me a line if you can help.
