Dead Bike & Dead Bike Needs to travel 20 miles or so

I have my bike at Motorcycles Unlimited in parts. I need a trailer to put the bike on and get it up to Tomball area. Anyone have a suggestion or could help? My friend has a truck, with a covered bed, and a towing hitch. Anyone have a simple trailer I could throw the 2fiddy on and take it up to Tomball on? Only be gone a couple hours at max, and I can give you a copy of my DL or something to hold onto to let you know I ain't a creepy villian ...

Otherwise suggestion on the cheapest place for rental. My bike is flat out unrideable right now and need to get it up to Tomball from 1960 and Kuyekdahl. I'm trying to avoid paying extravagant Uhual costs, and I'm not even sure where a Uhaul has the bike trailer option. I wouldn't be opposed to paying 20 bucks or so to just use it quickly? Any help. I'm bikeless right now. Been over a month since I had a good ride.....

PM info if you can help me out. I appreciate it MH community!

Sheldon.
You can borrow our trailer, it's got a 2" ball.
You should have mentioned you needed on Saturday while you were here.
Give me a call Tuesday morning, I may have another alternative as well.

I'm just outside of Tomball, I don't mind trailering it for you. When do you plan to pick it up?

you guys rock. I'll be in touch. Thanks for the great community.

Imagine this kind of support from the local "honda" community with civics... Ever see that? It's one thing I love about the moto community... we stand together.

(except if you ride a harley... j/k)

DvlRacer, thanks for your help in towing the bike. I was really blown away by the response and support from a group of people I haven't got to personally meet yet.

I'll be a loyal member forever... or at least until I buy a harley, then you guys will definitely be a road side service for me..... :-0
