Need Trailer space returning from Blackhawk this weekend

I was curious if anyone might have room to bring an additional bike or two home for me from Blackhawk this weekend.

I have to pick up additional bikes at Blackhawk, that I will be taking to Miller the following week and need some extra help. If anyone would be driving back on 90 to get home, I live right off of 90 & 59 (literally the first light south).

Anyone got room for a couple of bikes? Or two people with room for one additional bike?

Thanks,

Brian

I trailer my bike so the bed of my truck is open. I live right by you so it isn't even out of my way.

I'm not short. I'm aerodynamically efficient.

Jon,

That would be great, can you fit one or two bikes in the bed of your truck? It would really help me out a ton!

Thanks,

Brian

Brent,

Great idea, that didn't even occur to me. If we can, I'd prefer to bring them here. That way I can get everything packed and all we have to do is roll your bike in (and gear) when I pick you up on the way to Miller. The less time spent on the road, the better it'll be. Less hassle the more I can pack ahead of time.

But if I can't get them here, I might send Dave Frick or Dustin Boyd's bikes with you.

Thanks,

Brian

I can fit one bike comfortably. 2 might be pushing it.

I'll bring my extra chock along... if you are desperate, we can use my trailer and fit 1 additional bike on it. I won't guarantee its safety though

One with Jon and One with Jon. That gets them both home.

If that works for you guys, I'll buy you both dinner Sunday night on the way home.

Hahaha don't forget your daughter is one of those now! I'll know for sure hopefully by the end of today. If not, I wouldn't have a problem bringing back someones bike on Saturday if someone is only planning on being there for one day.

Not a problem. If you can't find someone else to take the other bike we can try to shoe horn both in. Although I can't be held responsible if we need to load both into the bed.

Wink, I should have some extra room on the trailer. I am planning on traveling 90 to 59, so a slight detour shouldn't be an issue. Let me know if you still need the space?

I can get a truck and drive to Blackhawk after work Friday. I'll just meet you guys there.

Then I'll just bring my bike home from Blackhawk on Sunday night. That should free up at least one spot in your trailer.

Craig,

I might need that. It looks like I am getting close to set, talk to me a the party Sat night over a beer, we'll see where we are at. I think though that I am set at this point.

Thanks,

Brian

Tom that would be wonderful. I was one bike short at the moment since GuDaddy is skipping out on BHF.

Thanks a ton. (hopefully, I can get them all in the trailer, but it will be a tight fit and just wnat to make sure that I have a back up solution)

Thanks.
