    Default Orlando to Tampa to get a bike, Need help hauling back. $100

    Anyone in the Orlando, FL area wanna make some cash on April 30th? Need truck or trailer transportation to pick up the bike in Tampa, FL and bring it back to Orlando. I will buy breakfast/lunch/dinner, pay for gas and give some cash for the time... Basically I'll pay ya $100 total... That is what it would cost me to rent a U-haul to get it.

    A cargo van would work as well.

    PM me


    IF you want to know specifics. Chuluota, FL to Clearwater, FL and back.

    My ex-wife asked me what she could have done to make me desire her more... I said " become a woman that can transform into a motorcycle at any time ......that and learn to cook and become a mute during football games"

    A Uhaul motorcycle trailer is just 25 bucks or so for a 24 HR rental..your other 75 offered up covers your gas. Its really a no brainer from my view point...Uhaul rental.
    MY BIKES..1977 GS 750 B, 1978 GS 1000 C(X2)
    1978 GS 1000 E, 1979 GS 1000 S, 1973 Yamaha TX 750, 1977 Kawasaki KZ 650B1, 1975 Honda GL1000 Goldwing, 1983 CB 650SC Nighthawk, 1972 Honda CB 350K4, 74 Honda CB550

    NEVER SNEAK UP ON A SLEEPING DOG..NOT EVEN YOUR OWN.


    I would rather trust my bike to a "QUACK" that KNOWS how to fix it rather than a book worm that THINKS HE KNOWS how to fix it.

    A trailer is the way to go. Getting an 850 in and out of a van would be a pain in the butt.
