    Coming down from the frozen midwest to Florida in March for a week riding with my daughter in Florida so she can visit the USF campus. Will be bringing my electra glide down in the back of the truck. Am starting and finishing the ride in Tallahassee

    I know it's a long shot but does anyone know where there's a truck dock in tallahasee that I might be able to use (possibly after hours) to unload and load this beast?

    Planning on sticking the truck in long term parking at the airport but need to be able to get the bike out of it

    Thanks!

    Talk to local dealer with regards to both the ramp and the parking. No need to go to airport @ $11 a day

    Unload bike at the dealer, then park your truck at my place. No need to pay for parking :deal
    Or roll it off onto my lift, and lower it that way

    I've got a ramp and the perfect swale for loading and unloading. About 22 miles south of the Tally airport.

    I just found out that I’ll have to stay in Indianapolis an extra day, so I won’t be back until the 17th. Still welcome to off load, park, and launch from Buzztopia. The Mrs. will be there.
