Marty, let's talk about this at RWTW, maybe we can get a shipping option together. Then fly in!!

Your best bet would be to have someone that is attending take them out there. The bigger companies would be transporting several across country and making various stops, you would probably have a several day window on the delivery and would probably need someone local to take delivery for you and same on the return. It might be easier to just fly and rent one.

I'm considering this as an option too. Ride out, ship back or vice versa. The prices are .... wooo, up there. But considering camping/hotel, meals, wear and tear on the bike and body :-\, and the time out of work just for travel is rough. One way is an option, even both. I would 100% want to get in on a shipping set up. Or getting someone to sacrifice a truck and trailer and some butt time driving bikes out and or back would be an option. Paid for of course!  :great:

Sadly, I don't think Jorge and I are going to make it for next year.  Makes my heart sad because I always look forward to getting together with my COG family.

Going to be busy month and I think I'm starting it in Mexico, then Chicago the week before the rally -- but pretty sure I'm in. May be a day late, but I'll be riding up! Really looking forward to my first COG National.

Oooh Oooooh This is gonna be a good one. Great location. Close to Mt Hood and Mt Rainier. Across the water from Portland, Near Tillamook. This trip is a real Winner! I'm so in. Let me know what you find in the way of motorcycle rentals near Portland airport.  :motonoises:

Now don't take this as gospel. Just an OMC rant. But getting to and back from the nat is 50% of the fun. Going from the west to The East coast 3 times now the ride out and back was a huge part of the story. I hear ya, Not everyone can take 2 weeks for a MC ride. But if you can Man is there stuff to C and do. C U there I hope. I heard rumors of a bikini bike wash.

You know, since I retired I've been making an effort to visit my siblings once a year and one of them lives just north of the rally, in Seattle and two live in Portland. I usually fly, but ... I'm seriously thinking about driving out next year, do the rally, touch base with my sibs and take the scenic route home. Hmmm... If I drive the new Dodge I'll have room for more than one guitar too...  Gotta start thinking about a plan...

Having purchased my XR from Texas, I can say with some certainty that shipping bikes to the Rally will
be too nerve racking.  Pick up dates are estimated, as are delivery dates.  More specific dates can be
met at additionsl cost.  My bike was $800 to ship, insured for what I paid for it.  Shipping time was 2-3 weeks.
That's a LOT of worry time (especially round trip).  Plus side, bike was not damaged at all.

I'll fly out and ride it to the rally for you.  You pay the gas and cost of any performance awards.  Might not even need a motel...

I'll even guarantee the pickup date and drop off date.  :)

Such a deal...
