That's my guess. Any bike will fit in an E350. Some may require removing windshields.

I sold a KTM 450 to some guys that hauled it home in a Dodge Caravan, they had to lay it down. Made me a little sick.

Anybody familiar with parking on-campus at CU? Specifically, will they instantly ticket a motorcycle parked in a valid motorcycle lot? I'm only there for 2 hours a day for the rest of the week, trying to be cheap.

They only ticket ugly bikes, so you're safe if you bring the Italian.

Sorry, no useful info.

You can park at my house and borrow a bicycle if you want. It's literally a 10 minute bicycle ride...

I need some advice from the cold weather crew:

My uncle died and left all of his gear to my Dad--well he has passed now and in cleaning out the house I found a
Woods sleeping bag/robe it is goose down filled looks and smells brand new---might not have ever been used
came in a duffel type carrier-- need to know about what yall think this thing might be valued at--roughly guessing The company that makes them sell new for $700

I don't ever plan on having to need a -40 degree sleeping bag/ robe

Thanks for any help you fellows can offer

Later --KW

At any rate, it looks like I owe both Geek and Toddler a Mojo IPA for winning, as well as Blake for being a good sport!
