I sent charles directions to my place (way north east of town - a little west of brighton).  PM me your e-mail address and I can send them to you too.  I may not be too responsive tomorrow, 'cause I have to go to California for the day.

Will do. I won't get anything done tuesday since I'm meeting some friends for dinner and I'm pretty sure there will be some stuff left over.

Hey Charles,

Did you get Andrew's trailer OK?  I have the dirtbike trailer and will hook it to my Park Avenue tomorrow (Labor Day) AM.  It's not the best trailer for small stuff, but I have used it to move fridges, washer/dryer, couches, etc.

I'll try to be there around 8:00am pending my actually being awake.
See you,
-Joel.

Guys, just wanted to say thanks for dropping the trailer back off, sorry we weren't around when you did.  Hope the move went well!

Thanks for letting me use it. The trailer was a huge help. Joel and I did one full load on his motorcycle trailer before Ian got there, then we loaded up both trailers and that got everything.

Thanks for the help everyone! :)

It was a good thing I got the dirtbike trailer hooked up, I needed it this afternoon to pick up my new (used) Ducati Monster 620.  Whoohoo!

Yep, it's the American way.  During a gas crisis, I decide the smart thing to do is buy a motorcycle that gets 10% better gas mileage than my other motorcycle.

This bike is amazingly fun.  Not a powerhouse but good power, very small, and a riding position that makes you feel like a crazed cafe racer.  The brakes are insane too.

Nice!  the monster is a sweet ride, and with the 620 it must handle really really well!  

your gas mileage thoughts make me question my own bike quest.  I keep debating about trading the R11S in on either a new Monster S4R or a new BMW K1200R.  It is hard to say no to a 500# motorcycle with 164 crank hp.  It must suck gas (relatively anyway) though.

I don't know if the 620 handles any better, I think the larger motor, up to a point, does not add much weight and it's all down low.  I could see getting a 900ie if I really like this bike.

I was really joking about the MPG.  The CBR gets decent fuel economy (although on my commute it is generally below 40 due to traffic I guess.)  The Duc will probably not do much better, it has to do nearly the same amount of work.  Maybe the desmo and FI will conspire to save me a few bucks on gas.  

I mainly got it to liven up my commute, and so as not to leave a plastic coated bike out in the weather at a crowded bike lot, and at the mercy of the skateboarders all day.  This Ducati has already been down and then left to fend for itself in a towing yard or something.  It's sort of in the condition I don't want my CBR to end up in.  It'll be nicer in a day or so as work progresses, but I'm not going all-out and making it perfect.

The big K-whackers interested me a while back, but the 600 pounds struck me as a bit excessive.  I do not think I would invest that much disposable income into a bike either.  I have thought about some of the interesting new bikes but cannot see being any (significant amount) happier on a $10-$12K bike than on a $3500 bike, and I'd worry a lot more about it.  Maybe if I, you know, get a job at Sun making a lot more money that would change :-)

When I am looking at an 8-10K trade in on my current bike, that makes the new price easier to swallow.  besides it is a BMW :roll:

I wish the job change was for more money - it isn't - I'll stay even but jump to a much more attractive career path and better benefits.
