Need Help getting a bike to GSS 6-13

I was suppose to go to GSS this Sunday and I told another person here I would gve them a ride. Well I just dropped my bike off at Motorcycles Unlimited with a possibly dropped valve So needless to say I am not going on sunday but now I just screwed over somebody else because I told them I can give them a ride to GSS.

Here is where you come in I have a 3 bike trailer so if you have a trailer hitch and you were going to throw it in the back of your truck, you can use my trailer to help this guy out.

Again I feel like since I screwed over someone else but its better that than me riding at GSS when my engine goes booom and oil is all over the place

thanks in advance

adam

Either way get this guy a ride to GSS please

Dude. Sorry to hear about the bike. Hopefully you'll have ut back and running soon. If zaxos still don't have a ride have him pm me. I might be able to take his bike but I'm spending the nite in Galveston Saturday nite so I would have to meet him there.
