Question ride needed - Jax to Dowling Park, FL

Bike news: BMW (BMW Motorcycles Jacksonville) has had my 2012 G650GS Sertao for 7 days needing a rear brake line... Service MGR says the part has left the factory but no idea how soon it will reach Jacksonville. The parts guy says it could be a week or two. Neither BMW Roadside, BMW Customer Service nor the BMW of Jacksonville motorcycle dealer can come up with a loaner, a place to stay nor transportation for me. I have stayed with friend Tim and his family for a week now and they have been super...

Here's something that perhaps you can help with... the camp is 100 miles west of here GOOGLE MAP . I am taking over there as camp host asap. Will find ride back to Jax when bike is fixed. I would give you gas and buy lunch, of course. That would get me settled into a place of my own and give Tim his sofa back.

Once the bike is fixed I can go back down to Oxford and pick up the rest of my belongings.

I know it's a lot to ask, but it should be a pretty drive!

I'll be here all day if you can give me a call between your travels.

Your efforts will be greatly rewarded.

Brake line

That's because you're riding a metric bike not a Bavarian bike. Bavaria beer yes bikes no. Sorry kurtzpa couldn't resist. Have you found a ride yet?
