    buyer beware!!!!!!!!!

    I 've sung the good of joining eagle rider


    and I've had a good expernce every time I've used them

    not only was I surprised about the add on expense at the counter when I went to pick up my first bike


    told it was in the fine print

    turns out once you've paid up to 24 credits, instead of your credits building up they start dropping off one a month and they're still collecting your money

    with no plans to mention that little tidbit to you

    once you find out about this, if you quit all your credits go away


    so far the solution I've found is you have to book trips way a head of time, let your membership run out

    then you can still keep them


    that's sorta hard to do for a working fellow


    so if your member or thinking about joining kept this in mind

    a couple of mondays ago, we packed our bags

    tuesday morning we loaded em in robins truck

    and met back at the house at 5:30pm down to the airport

    learned acouple of things about frontier airlines

    they offered a flight for i think $39 bucks then they tacked on enough hiden cost that it was right up there with every one else

    plus they love to charge ya for bags, you cant pick your seat with out paying extra

    but the folks at the check in made sure robin and me sat together without either of us asking

    while we waited at the bar i sat beside a guy from merritta that said he leaves in vail now

    i said cool i got a tshirt from beaver liquars, he looked up and said i live right across the street and have all kinds of beaver liquar stuff :lol3

    i rushed my last drink and got in line to find out our flight was delayed

    back to the bar

    listening to some lady screaming she'd been throw off her plane and would somebody please take her home

    it sounded bad at first but the more she screamed the dumber it sounded

    impressed with the calm of seurity had talking with her


    boarded the plane

    i've always slept better without clothes

    i'm not sure why the stewardess make such a big deal about it

    we finally got to denver and needed a truck i'll let C.W. tell ya about truck shopping





    when we got off the bus and tru the rental line

    i'd rented a nissan cause i'm cheap and it was closer to ground to loas bike

    but when the gal said take which ever one ya want

    we went with the leather 4x4 dodge

    why hell yea




    (didn't even see fred)

    sold

    one motorcycle ramp for two dollars and something

    off to storage

    [​IMG]
