Need a quick assistance...

I have 2 bikes in a storage that I need to move to a different unit in the same facility. While I am doing ok with the lighter bikes, these happen to be HEAVY (goldwing and bking). The facility is in Arlington Heights and am wondering if someone would be available to assist in this very easy move from one garage to another. I need to do it before 6PM on the weekday, this week if possible.

Please PM me if you have a few moments to come by and help.
Thanks all!

I'm going to be in Deerfield on Lake Cook Rd tonight for a meeting, but I won't get there till 6... so I guess that rules me out if it can't be done after.

Haha. I don't think you can ride these like the SV. Well, maybe the B-king. I think you would have fun on that one I'm afraid to look at them - I haven't been to the storage since my accident - I am sure they need some cleaning...

Well, I have been off them for 6 weeks now, otherwise they would be fine. I DO need covers for the bikes for the winter, though... It's coming quick.

I do nothing for winter. I start them up every week. That's it. I may have to do somethign a little different for the Duc, but the ricers are fine all winder.

I would skip starting them up unless you are letting them run long enough so that they reach full operating temp

Yep. I let all the vapor dry before turning it off, so about 4 minutes or so.
