Hope this trip goes well for you and the bus performs well. Can't say I blame them for not bringing the bus to you, at least you get to check it out from a cold start and then boogey home!

Last trip was a mid afternoon flight. I booked this one at 7pm, so I'll be going against traffic and get there on time, have someone else me, another local guy I met on the forum here who is interested in getting one.
I'd feel a lot better if they brought it to me all warmed up with 5 hours on it. My negative mind is telling me right now that they don't want to drive it because it won't make it 5 hrs.
Bike auction is Fri., and it still looks good. So that trip to extended by 5.5 to the bus, 5.5 hrs back, and then 8 hrs west before turning east and home 2600 miles. If it were a Skoolie it would be a cool ride and I'd take my time. As a bus I just want to get it home. As it is I'l leave my cats alone for at least 5 days.

Where in Montana is the bus? I am about 7 hours from Twin Falls (in Helena, MT) - If you would like me to go look at the bus before you fly out.

Just now saw where she said they are in Butte. It won't be a total wasted trip knowing that. There's got to be a n Evel Kneivel museum there to check off my bucket list. There ya go, first thing on the BL minutes after purchase.

I was in Butte last week - it's a little over an hour from here.
If you want me to check out the bus this weekend - I would be happy to drive down and look at the bus.
Or if you need anything while picking up the bus - let me know.

If I win the bike, I'll need help and some tools removing a few rows of seats to fit it in.

If you went this weekend you would just be putting miles on yours. I'm sure it's in good condition from the pics. Planes fares are paid, hotels room, I'm committed. You would just be telling me what a good score I got.

F**K, wasn't paying attention and realize the auction on the bike ended an hour ago, thought it was later. Winning bid was $1700. I would have gone $2K. The only reason that didn't completely ruin my day was when I saw the other 3 police bikes that had "Law Enforcement Restriction" ,and didn't sell at $1500 to other law enforcement outfits, have been stripped of the police gear and resisted at $1500. The auction is 2 days after I arrive in Id., so I'd have to hang out for a couple more days in the area looking up old buds or sight seeing in my new bus.. Wait that'll give me time to remove some seats. I have another Ace up my sleeve I'll reveal later.
