Tyler,
I'm probably about 90 mins. away in central N.J. I'm not going to Indy, but if nothing better comes your way, I could probably at least pick the bike up (next week) and store it till you figure out your next move.

Hacka will probably see this as his opportunity to pitch me on trucking your bike and my KZ900 to TN. so I can then maybe cut his grass and get him coffee. That will be a stretch, but let me know if I can help.

Cheers,
Leo

dude, you guys are Godsends...honestly, i just can't believe the response from you guys. well, im talking to GoGo on AIM right now and she says it can stay in newark at her place as long as it needs to (she just wants a white and purple dirt bike to put her unicorns on) but im hoping one of you guys can get it to indy or maybe leo can get it to Hack's for me. either way, the seller is TOTALLY cool, he said if i couldnt come up with transportation, i could just pay him the relisting fee, and we wouldnt have a problem, but i want this bike pretty bad. i told him i'd have a resolution to him by the end of the week. so it can stay at leo's and at Go's....that isnt an issue, i just need to see who is going to indy in a truck or van, or who is a snow bird heading south some time when the weather gets cold...just so you know, im in west kentucky. thank you all so much, now i know why i have stuck around on this site!!!

Tyler,
Always nice to feel loved.

Let me know if I can help.

Cheers,
Leo

ps- Hacka, I forgot about the Hondas. I need a bigger truck. And my visiting Indian friends seemingly left impressed. I can now evidently BS on an international scale.

Tyler,
Mondays or Tuesdays are best for me. Either early or later in the day, so as to not screw up the shank of the afternoon.

If this guy said he wouldn't mind running it to north DE. to meet, that would be cool. I'm about an hour from the Del. Memorial Bridge. There's is a big Harley dealer right there as you cross into DE.

If you need me to run all the way to Dover, I could do that too, if need be. Just a little more time.

Shoot me an email or call (609-638-1726) as plans firm up.

Cheers,
Leo

hey leo, i was actually going to have GOGO pick it up for me. she said that she could keep it at her place as long as it needed to stay there and she is closer in newark. i was asking when you think you are heading (or if) to hack's place. and if you could transport it there for me.

Doug, you are too late...DANG!!! i couldn't get anybody to bring it to me, so i just told him about 2 hours ago that i wouldn't be able to get it, and i paid his relisting fee. oh well, i'll get another one later. thanks for the reply though doug, just a little too late on my part!

Geez - sounds like we have an underground railroad for bike delivery going on here. For the record - anyone coming through the Rochester NY area that needs a bed and coffee is more than welcome.
