A local guy is offering a bike transporter service for anyone coming out of Florida to Sturgis. He is licensed and insured. If interested, post on this blog, since I am no longer a Gold member and can not reply to emails.

Suz, you are right on bringing the two bikes, but the main reason I trailered that trip, remember I just had heart surgery a few days before. I didn't get clearance for that ride, but was determined to go. LOL

OMG...someone throw cold water on me...I kind of agree with Senor Noskool. It must be amore!! Again...suppose someone has ridden their whole life and simply can't ride anymore? Hard to make that determination sometimes. It's in the heart, the soul, the bones. But I do see what you are saying. It sure would be nice if things were like they used to be....the average citizen stayed far away from bikers..and no more friggen swap meets!!!!!!!!! Can't even go to a local biker bar without all these friggen vendors. SC...that is funny and true.
Pardon my cut-n-paste, No dis-respect is intended, I assure you but I'm not real good at typing. "...suppose someone has ridden their whole life and simply can't ride anymore?" Then, (if I knew 'em,) I'd park my scoot and hook a trailer up to my truck and pull 'em there, if it was that important to 'em. But most of what I see pulling trailers to events do not fall into that catagory, you know? "It's in the heart, the soul, the bones." Roger that! A person can wear all the t-shirts and doo-rags and pins that they want to, and they can adopt their best bad-ass-biker scowl, but if they don't actualy ride for the sake of the ride itself, well, they're fooling themselves, and those like them, but no one else. "It sure would be nice if things were like they used to be" Yeap, but nothing stays the same, right? "and no more friggen swap meets!!!!!!!!! " We must have a disconnect over terminology here. A "Swap meet" used to be a pretty cool thing. Rag'lar ole bikers putting out their extra parts and pieces on a blanket or a table and offering to trade or sell them for whatever. You could get some pretty good deals at a swap meet, but they're getting harder and harder to find nowadays. As for the vendors at the bars, yeap, I agree. I liked what WindJunkie called them: Chrome pimps.

LMFAO Eye, ffs you are gonna make me spank you. Yes, swap meets were traditionally as you described. Alas, they are all outdoor malls now. I think you are aware of what I am referring to. And don't tell me nothing stays the same! I love my little land of denial. Who took my tie dyed shirt and frosted white lipstick? Yeah, WindJunkie knows of what he speaks. But then he keeps good company :p E=mc2 aka Sister Mary Treasure the Hobo Mama T. Somebody send me an old hippie biker...STAT!

Ya'll are most welcome. I wish I did have more time for traveling. I agree with Wind on how the rallies have changed. Just back from Daytona and was disappointed in some of my friends behavior. Some were there to party and see how many they could sleep with in one week. I was the outcast of the group cause I wanted to ride and do my own thing. I dont have to stay drunk to enjoy myself. Still trying to figure out how folks, especially guys can even go to rallies without a bike at all. Hmmmm

Trailering (for whatever reason) can be an aid to independence. Like, crutches, walkers, wheelchairs, TRIKES, you are still moving, somehow, someway. Charmz posted a notice of a service for people who might need/want it. Maybe a thank you is in order? Thanks Charmz.

ROTFLMFAO Noskool....Beso Senor Noskool, beso. Ooooo I just wanna pinch your little red face. People who really love to ride don't give a damn how someone else gets there. It has no effect on them. Kinda like...if I have to explain it you wouldn't understand. If it has to be debated then maybe other's priorities are not about the ride but about how it looks. Noskool, you know how your dots and dashes get me all excited.

EYE Im with you, I dont trailer, I think half the fun of going anywhere on the bike is the ride there and back. But if ppl want to trailer its nice to have a service like this. Ok Im done weve hashed the "to trailer or not" to death before.

Yeap, thanks are in order for his posting that! I am sure there are many people that are glad to get that informnation and some that will avail themselves of that service. Yes, Treasure The Hobo, there are many reasons why someone would not be able to ride that far, and I do understand that, and have no time or desire to get into a "trailer discussion." But for me, I can still enjoy the ride, and will continue to do so, and for ME, that's what it's all about. As I said, for ME, it's not about the destination, but the ride. And time for all of us is limited.

Quoting: Originally posted by HDsweetcheeks I agree EYE ..but some ppl just cant get the time to ride I guess.

True that, as I can't always get the time to ride myself. (I meant to say, "I can't always get the time to ride, EITHER.") But hey, for me, (and ME only, y'all,), if I don't have the time or coin to ride to a bike rally, I just won't go. There's absolutely NOTHING at Sturgis, or Daytona, or Myrtle Beach, or Laconia, or where-ever that is absolutely so important I just HAVE to go, you know? Pfft. If I'm going to bust a knuckle and scrape and save to take some time off to enjoy a road trip, well, it's going to be about the trip and the ride and not the destination. For me, I love stopping at places, the people you meet, (then forever lose,) the smells of the road (OK, not all of the smells...) the wind (Does anyone that trailers wanna tell me how much they love "getting in the wind??")the scenery you go through, (even the boring and irksome parts,) the throb of the engine beneath me, (and praying it KEEPS throbbing,) and I guess I could go on and on about what I love about riding, but buying a t-shirt or a ride-pin and boasting about what rally I have been to, well, that just doesn't figure into what being a biker means to me.

Well as most of you know, my vacation time is very limited and riding 2 days up and 2 days back is just not feasible for me. But I do look forward to great riding when I get there!

well if I wanted to go and I was strapped for time I'd ship the bike.. and I certainly wouldn't worry about what some old geezer (like me) would say about it.. especially if the OG hadn't left his state since he got out of the service.. oh ya...
