    I maintained a similar list on the old forum, but never got around to transferring it to the new one. Instead of copying all the old info, I'm starting this one fresh.



    If you want to be on the list, please post the following info (to the extent that you care to):



    -City and state (For security reasons, please do not include your address.)

    -Forum name

    -Name

    -Day/Evening/Cell numbers (If you want to obscure the numbers (i.e. "Six-1-two...") I'll use you're format.)

    -Email address (I'll format all emails as "randall (dot) temple (at) bigfoot (dot) com" to thwart the email harvest-bots, unless you specifically ask for something different.)

    -What you have to offer (truck/trailer, tools, spares, manuals, access to dealer/parts vendor, lodging, etc.)



    Thanks,



    R

    I was hoping this idea would come up again.



    I'm close but north of Marshalltown Iowa, 20 miles from High Way 30,

    45 miles from Interstate 35 and 15 miles away from Interstate 20.

    A big yard with large shade trees I'm not fussy about for camping, tent or trailer, Always food on hand, large shop with chain hoist for lifting, plenty of tools. Nother farm yard where nobody lives if you just need to rest up for a while. Spare wheels with tires ready to go and the usual strange collection of used parts.

    UPDATE: I'm finishing up a trailer capable of transporting one bike, one ton max.

    Also able to lift a motorcycle right up into a pickup bed with loader tractor.



    If your route takes you near me let me know, will provide phone number then, or message me here as I've been checking at least twice a day.
