I bought a bike in Orlando once. Flew down to pick it up and ride it home. It was November, it rained all the way, and ... Ehh, just find someone to trailer it up.

Sweet. Just sold one to an friend. VERY dependable bike. Will go anywhere, and you have a ton of torque just off idle.

Nice stick.

Nice bike. Where's the "I'm jealous as hell" smiley.

Fly down, rent a cheap 10' U-Haul, and drive it back. They have ramps and tie-down points built in, if I'm not mistaken. Shouldn't be more than a few hundred bucks for the truck.

What's your time frame, Clip? I have a boat I need to get DOWN to Stuart, right next door to Palm City. We should talk at the DC bike show-

A friend from the local club is in FLA right now. He has his pick-up and his GS (hauled it down there because he was hauling a bunch of other stuff). I'll see if anyone on the local board knows how to get in touch with him and if so, I'll try to hook you guys up.

No thanks.. But just think of the ride report you and Clip could do. You could call it the "Other Way Around". two bikers spend weeks alone at sea on a flatboat...
