IS this related to that boris mankini picture thing you used to post? Or is it the dude dressed up as a unicorn related?

Nice. And it was nice that you dropped by for a visit today. Good to see you Ben.

So basically what would have to happen with shipping is that I'd have to get the bike to Atlanta where it would be crated and put on a train to CA. From there it would travel by ship to China where it would be transferred to another ship bound for Guam/Saipan.

Several months and several thousand dollars later it would arrive at the port in Saipan for pickup.

If I were moving there permanently it would be worth it but I'm only in the CNMI temporarily.

If I ship it over I'll have to ship it back or sell it when I leave next year.

Yeah it was great to stop in and see you and Mrs Flashback too....sorry for not giving you any warning...it was just a spur of the moment thing when i saw how close i was after grabbing the tag on hodge rd. Once you told me that the bike had to be shipped to China first i could see how ridiculously expensive that would be I dont see why they couldnt just ship it to Hawaii and go from there... kinda stupid... I'm sure things coming from the mainland to hawaii dont go through China...??? Granted I'm ignorant about importing or exporting goods...

Good grab.
That's my Sunday afternoon hangout by the pond at the picnic table with a cold beer from the store listening to the water go over the dam.
Yes. It's mostly Harleys but I've been there on the dr too.

Just made it back home. I had a great ride! Took me some doing to actually find it as I had passed it way out going on 97, going past 39, and after googling it on my phone actually found where it was and turned around just in time to still have some daylight for the photo. The guy standing came out to check what I was doing..Then there was not signal So I rode further to post the grab

Tag



near Lillington, on a road with the name of Native American Indian footwear, just off Raven Rock Rd. It's a short portion, nicely graded, no deep gravel.
