This is the place to post if you are riding with us.

1) No need for the wise guys on the forum to ask if it is a short bus.

Beth and I are bringing: Trash bags, lysol, hand soap, Coffee, (we have a Tassimo machine which is pretty cool), sugar, TP, home made bread, one pan of Lazagna (guaranteed to be the most kick ass Lazagna you have ever tried), two bikes, and a tool box which has every tool needed to disassemble an MV Agusta.

Bring what ever you would like to eat or drink.

The plan so far is: Matty will meet at my house Thursday morning and we will load three bikes in the truck and trailer. We plan to drive to Jeff's house and pick up his bike. Or, if you like, Jeff, meet us at Chris's house. We will pick up the RV in Southington at noon. It takes about an hour for the orientation tour. Plan to get to Chris's house by two at the latest. Figure two hours to load the bikes on the trailer, build the enclosure and hook it up to the RV. Leave Chris's house around four.

We have 8 people in the RV and can fit two more. We don't have room for more bikes.

After Losing to a Busa with NOS at the Marcus Diary show Chris and I left ashamed that we over paid for our bikes, after all busas are the greatest bikes in the world.

I left my bike at Chris' house and I will go back on Tuesday to help him build the enclosure. Thursday morning I will be there again first thing to load up the two bikes that are there. If you guys want drop off the bike the night prior that will make things go faster. By the time you guys get to Chris' house we hope to have his and mine loaded and the enclosure built! The sooner we leave the better. I feel like a 5 year old waiting for Christmas.

We will be bringing fruits, cheese, crackers, pasteries, and disposably plates/utensils.

Lost to a busa with nitrous? Hope the show was not as lame as the vote indicates.

I agree the earlier we get there and the more bikes we get loaded first, the better.

I can trailer both my bikes down on Wed., so that on Thursday all we have to do is load Matty's and Jeff's.

The earliest I can pick up the RV is noon.

the show was a HD/cruise thing. I was not in the mood to ride, something didn't feel right so I just stayed.
All the real riders were out riding! So the lame voting was a reflection of the lame bikes, and riders there (wait I was there all day, ohh well).

I understand not being able to leave before noon. If you can bring your two on Wed night, Chris and I will load it in the morning. I think that would be great!

If we can get out of the NYC Metro area before traffic starts we will be in good shape, there should not be much of anything on I-81. There is about 20 miles of construction on I-81 around Harrisburg, PA once we get passed that it is easy cruising all the.

I was thinking of bringing alcohol but I don't know what the open container laws are for a RV, I am sure we can live without a drink for 20 hrs or so.

Most states allow open containers in a RV just not the driv er or passenger in the front seat can have one. My grand father traveled extensively from New england and he would make my grandmother drive so he could have a drink in the kitchen. And he said it was legal he checked.

Carl,

For those of us not in attendance, those of us who will be living vicariously trough your expliots as y'all make your way down to the Land of Milk and Honey, I insist that you document all stages of the short bus' progress. Please post pics of the short bus and its occupants and the accompanying motorcycle trailer with homemade enclosure.

In case y'all get bored, I've written out several typical liberal missives, any one of which can be read during a lull in the fun in order to spark heated debate. Carl, I think it would be best if you read it personally, (I trust you to give it the right inflection), but I'll leave that to y'all.

Have fun guys!

Elton

here is pictures of the trailer, we just need some bikes to go in it!

Carl think you can get the bikes to Chris' house tomorrow night?
It took us 4 hours to get this much done, it will take us a few more hours to get the bikes loaded and ready to go, so time will be short.

Yes. Matty and I are bringing three bikes down this afternoon. Should be there around 4.

I still haven't heard from Jeff so I don't know if he is riding his bike there on Thursday, or we are picking it up for him.

awesome, with 5 bikes there Chris and I can build the hooks, load them and be ready to go as soon as you guys show up with the RV. We'll even take the trailer to a nice flat area with the truck so that it will be easy to hook it to the RV.:yo:

while the trailer foundation looks quite sturdy....i find it ironic that a 100k worth of bikes will be traveling that far in that plywood enclosure........reminds me of the Clampetts......

not that my old tahoe is anything to brag about.

For the amount of time, money, and effort, you coulda rented a U-Haul 20 foot box truck to follow the motorhome. I can picture it now.........Carl and Elton riding in the U Haul discussing the numerous things that they agree on........for the first ten minutes of the ride......and then both heads exploding.

people need to stop hating!
the trailer is good, we just didn't want the bikes exposed to flying rocks, possible rain, etc. so we came up with a quick fix.

I have wi-fi on my laptop, there will be updates posted as we cross into each state and certainly a picture from the mason dixon line!!!
