Susan and I and a IBA pal from Calgary have rented a garage in Phoenix for the winter to store our bikes. Michael was the fourth till he punted his Wing in June
The idea is to fly down to Phoenix ocassionally and go riding.
Yes we are flying from Seattle ( 197 round trip prices). But Expedia now knows where you log on from and won't let you buy US Fares from a cdn ISP address.....Unless you have a US Address and CC bill sent there . It tricks the computer.
Of course my little mailbox I have in Blaine so that I can have a US postal code to buy at pay at the pump solved that problem. Bite me Air Canada and your $500 return flights.
Our idea is to get some great midwinter riding in the sun - ride to Daytona for the IBA Pizza Party, do Bike Week and explore New Mexico, Arizona and Texas.
We are renting a garage at the home of a IBA member $50.00 US a month per bike. ICBC added $120.00 to our policies for having the bikes out of country and Megson just needed the address and that it was a locked alarmed house. Our pal works for Wells Fargo.
Susan on her FJR is riding outside of Salt Lake City Sunday evening and passes three Goldwings(with fuzzy bears). They indicate they want to talk on CB ch 1. She says "Hi there" and they realize the FJR is being ridden by a woman. There is silence then one says "hey BC, how long have you be travelling?" Susan says I left Vancouver yesterday at Noon...Silence and then a very quiet "Holy Shit"
They chatted till she got out of range but I am sure those boys didn't think a woman would be riding an FJR
I leave tomorrow night and we are going here Sunday
and I am riding in this rally Saturday http://www.loe1000.org/
