    Sure thing......primo R90/6 with bags and rack, detachable, serviced and ready to go. Pick up over by Chattanooga or can take over to you with compensation for my time, trouble, and mileage.

    Per Day: $100 per day with no mileage limits
    Deposit: $4000 returned after inspection and repairs
    Insurance: YOUR problem

    Let me hear from you.......God bless.........Dennis

    Ashville is around 5 hours through some of the most wonderful country, mountains, winding roads, BBQ, and good folks that you will experience getting there either way. I suggest if you want to continue this that we start a PM back and forth as the forum really isn't for conducting business...............See you then....God bless........Dennis

    There's a place in Greenville (about 80 miles south of Asheville) that rents motorcycles. I'm not 100% sure of their BMW inventory but I know I've seen an R1200RT.

    Rent BMW

    Call the new BMW dealer in Asheville. Nice facility and I'll bet they know of something.

    Edit: That BMW shop, Asheville Eurosports, I think, is directly across the street from the entrance to The Biltmore House and The RA Rally.

    Forgive please, the person asked how far it was to Ashville. That's a distance, not a time.
    Your five hours is too much of a variable to try to calculate with. You may travel faster or slower than they do, or that I would. But a known distance is a finite amount. Then they can calculate how long it should take to travel, allowing for bladder breaks, kodak moments, etc.
    Thank you

    Time and Distance are the same thing. Don't take my word for it. Check Einstein's simple theory of relativity.
