Boston to Vegas by truck in May ???

CONTACT BY PRIVATE MESSAGE TO EXCHANGE PHONE NUMBERS TO GET MORE DETAILS.

I am organising a group on this transport to ride 2 weeks in May from the 9th to the 23rd - Anyone interested in tagging along? . We can get $850 for the return trip.

Before you post comments on riding down - I can only get 2 weeks vacation at a time and don't want to have to change tires in Vegas so I am trucking down.

I am personally doing a ride around the Grand Canyon on 40% off-road through Nevada, California, Arizona and back through Utah. While in Utah I will be doing 3-4 sections of the UTBDR. I will be camping but it can be done in motels also.

Itinerary looks like this:

This is not a guided tour and each will be responsible for his own expenses (lodging, air fare, fuel, food, ....) In camping mode, this trip can easily be done under $2500. A list of chosen lodging will be supplied and each will make his own reservations.

Here is the detail of the Grand Canyon Tour

SATURDAY MAY 2ND - Motorcycle drop off at Boston/Newark warehouse

Day 1 (Saturday): Riders arrive in Vegas
Day 2 (Sunday): Pick-up of motorcycles, packing, visit of Vegas and group diner
Day 3 (Monday): Valley of Fire, Toroweap outlook (Grand Canyon North Rim) - Camping
Day 4 (Tuesday): Toroweap Outlook, Zion National Park, Kodachrome State Park – Camping

Day 8 (Saturday): LA Sal Pass, Newspaper rock, Monticello – Lodge (UTBDR Section 3)

Day 9 (Sunday) : DAY OFF (Beautiful day rides available including Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado)

Day 10 (Monday): Mokee Dugway, Valley of the gods, Goosenecks, Mexican Hat – camping (UTBDR Section 1 et 2)
Day 11 (Tuesday): Monument Valley, Antelope Canyon, Page – camping
Day 12 (Wednesday): Grand Canyon South – Rim, Sedona AZ (Route 89A), Sedona, Cottonwood – camping
Day 13 (Thursday): Jerome, Route 89A, Route 97 - Hualapai Peak - Kingman - camping

Day 15 (Saturday) : Return of motorcycles AM – Riders leave Vegas (after 17h00)

SATURDAY MAY 30TH - Motorcycle pick-up at Boston/Newark Warehouse


The return trip motorcycle transport cost includes:
- Motorcycle transport
- Transport and warehouse insurance
- Individual pallets and strapping

7 RIDERS ARE IN - GONNA HAVE ONE GRAT RIDE !!!!!!!!!!!!!

The only limit to the number of riders is the truck (24). In October we were 27.

In the case of a very large group, we will have half start north through Utah and the other half south through Arizona with a meet half way in Monticello, Ut to swap stories and route adjustements from the first week :)

Riding groups never larger than 6
