Hi LadyCruiser,

If you pass through Jackson, MS on your way to New Orleans I have a garage, tools, and an extra room if needed. There is also a Triumph dealership close to my house. I might be able to show you some good roads going from Jackson to NOLA if you happen to come through on a weekend. Send me a PM if I can be of any help. Good luck and safe travels!

I am near the Southern end of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Have a shop with motorcycle lift, tools, and place to stay if needed.

If you do go to Jackson, MS, stay away from the Dew Drop Inn on a Saturday night.
I'm joking of coarse. It's from a Charlie Daniels Song.

If you get near the Triad area of North Carolina (Greensboro, Winston-Salem, High Point), the wife and I would offer you a room for the night, garage for your bike, tools, etc. Have a Triumph dealer about 25 minutes from my house.

If you're traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway, we're only about 1 hour and 15 minutes from the Fancy Gap, Virginia exit (approximately mile marker 200).

Let me know when you get to Texas...

I ride a Bonneville SE, and can offer a few ideas on better routes in the area.

Lunch on me.

If you ignore almost everyone's advice and come to Chicago send me a note. My wife and I will show you around and even meet you on the outskirts and give you an escort. And there are indeed two fine Triumph dealers handy.
I have a couch, tools, bike lift and cold beer. Pk

Use the "Tent Space List" for local hospitality and advice.

Stop and visit when you get to Calif.
I'm listed and just inland from San Francisco, good base camp for day rides to Yosemite, Tahoe, SF and North Coast.
Wine Country, www.visitlodi.com

Might want to consider joining the BMWMOA for roadside assistance benift and the "Anonymous Book" (list of members by state and town willing to help or provide place to stay).
http://bmwmoa.org/TheClub/JointheBMWMOA.aspx
The monthly magazine is great, check to see if they will mail it home ?

When you get close to SD, PM me and I can suggest some scenic routes. I also have garage space, tools and a spare room if you need it. I'm 16 miles E of Sturgis in the northern edge of The Black Hills.

I assume you're shipping a Bonneville to the U.S.? Or are you buying one when you get here?
