I am thinking the main group that were active in the thread are just no longer riding, or posting. I had considered storing a bike down south. I think Hektoglider has / or had one stored in Vegas. I remember reading a ride report called the Mobius Trip where they purchased bikes and road the TAT 2 weeks at a time over a few years. They would ride for a week or 2 of their vacation, store the bikes and riding/camping gear in a locker and repeat on the next vacation. They would rent the smallest locker they could get, unhook the batteries drain fuel, take the bars off and lay them sideways to fit everything including bags and gear into the locker and fly home in sneakers, jeans and tshirts. It seemed like a pretty cool way to do things.
