    The deal still works if 10 people do the trip, $450 each way. The sign up is by April 20th as the prices in May goto full value. If you are interested post here in public and send me a PM I will then give you the details and the contact name at federal shipping. The pricing is based on two one way trips, for example if 10 sign up for the out trip then the price is $450 for that group. If 5 sign up for the return then their costs will be much higher. If someone signs up for a round trip and it is not 10 & 10 the their costs will be higher. The shipping out would be on the 8th so we can have our bikes for the 4th, they will arrive on the 15th. The trailer will be a dedicated trailer, once loaded the bikes will not be handled again until Portland.
    Best, Paul

    Maybe

    I would still be interested in the return trip, but it is departure date dependent.

    My preference would be the Friday or Saturday after the rally.

    I am still, like, WAAYY interested but only for the trip out. First, I apologize for my delay in responding - I couldn't log in yesterday (kept getting error messages). Some questions.

    Where in Boston is the pick-up point and what is the timeframe?
    How are we being guaranteed that our loved iron horses are not going to simply disappear?
    Where is the pick-up point in Portland?
    What is the cutoff time of day for picking up one's trusty steed?
    Can the bikes have their luggage on them.... fully packed?
    Who is responsible for tying the bike down in the trailer?
    What is the accepted form of payment and when is it due?

    Can anyone else think of other pertinent questions?

    And then on a personal side, would anyone who is participating in this be willing to get me back home after dropping off my bike? I live alone so transportation is an issue for me. I am more than willing to pay for gas.

    Cheers!

    Louise

    Talked with Barbara this morning ( 800-747-4100 X 2219) need to get everything set by April 26 to get the low rate. They will allow an extra bag with gear on the bike. Pickup would be after the 4th weekend. delivery around the 16th. all this is tentative as she is trying to get things worked out.

    I appreciate your efforts, but it looks like I'll be riding back. I'll stay posted to see if this changes.

    You know you want to go to the west coast!
    You know you can only spare 2 weeks vacation!
    You know you'll kick yourself when you book in June for twice the price!
    You just need to sit for a moment and make up your mind!
    You know you want to see the sweepstakes draw your name!
    If only I knew how to rhyme....

    Thanks for all the work and info. Unfortunately I'm going to have to bail on this due to a project at work shifting it's scheduled business trip to TX to the same week as the drop off time for the truck. At this point I'm getting concerned about it expanding and shifting even later impacting when I can leave for the west coast!
