For the money he would pay to ship the bike or rent a truck he can take a taxi.

I'm with the rest of the guys, ride the bus or buy a friend some lunch and gas money to drive him and ride the bike home.

Good point, I'd drive him up there myself but round trip from Tacoma would be a bit much, even for a fellow MoRon,

Plus he's not an offical member of the GPTB so I'm under no obligation to help.

C'mon guys, be a bro' and help him out

I rode the Greyhound a couple of years ago between New Orleans and Gulfport, MS.



Needless to say, it was "interesting."

How 'bout we tie two MoFo strings together...



Have a bud haul him up there in a 911, and then see who gets back first!



One rule - no Interstate/limited access road allowed.

You provide the 911 and I'll drive down from Salt Lake and do it. It'd be a real sacrifice, but I'm willing to suffer for the cause.

Good stuff about actually tying down. To this I'd add to stop after the first few miles and check the tiedowns again. After that you're good to go, or so has been my experience carting my XR400 all over southern Arizona.

When I got out of the Navy in '79 I rode the bus from Norfolk, Va. home to Tacoma. Lot of interesting folks, to be sure.

I hooked up with these two girlies from Australia who were over here traveling around so it wasn't all bad.

Default Re: bus riding

If we are comparing the size of our buses(trips) 10 years ago I rode it from Oregon through Mexico and in to Belize on the Caribean coast. Took only about 8 days. Since then I've rode many buses in many countrys and I would say that in the U.S. we have the srangest bus riders anyware. Here riding the bus is like visiting the looney bin, and any other place everybody rides the bus.



That said have you ever went to the bus stations in L.A. Maybe the one in Compton (I think this is the one for going north) or the one in Hollywood? I would suggest avoiding them and going with a friend giving you a ride and riding it home.
