i may be needing a lift for my race bike and gear, i am willing to drop off, pick up and pay for gas if someone has room for our mini stuff.

Bike
gear box
gear bag
canopy
2 fuel cans

please let me know if someone has room for the above and i'd be willing to compensate them for gas.

man, it's a 1008 mile round trip driving for me. i figure 17 mpg at $2.65 per gallon of fuel will cost me roughly $159.00 for fuel there and back.

that will take me around 16-17 hours of driving round trip. if i drive i can save another $100 for a hotel by sleeping in the truck.

vs. flying plus gas compensation to someone for helping me to haul my gear,

as of today, round trip air fare is $201.00, i would need a rental car $100.00 plus fuel for that , $20.00.

i guess it's cheaper to just drive up there but i lose almost a whole day just in driving there and back.

what to do?

Drive up and enjoy the scenery. At least until you get to the Oklahoma border!

I should have some room in the toy hauler but I will be leaving Thursday morning and leaving the track Sunday morning. I have someone else riding so we could split diesel cost three ways.
