AK & stranded

This is a big favor to ask of anyone, but if you can help and offer a bike to our club president and wife while they are stranded in AK, you would be a new friend indeed.

John is President of the Motor City Beemers Club in Detroit, MI. He rode his R1150RT to AK, Sharon flew in to meet him. After very little sight seeing together the rear end failed on their bike. When the Dealership opens this morning in Anchorage, we'll have more news, but even in the best of circumstances and quick repair, they will loose several days of riding.

The Dealership does not have rental bikes. Maybe there is someone in AK who has a bike they can borrow for the next several days before Sharon has to fly back to MI.

Can you help find a kind hearted rider who 'feels their pain'?

Joyfully,
Jim Mick (riding with John & Fritz)

Re: AK & stranded

I moved this to Bike Talk for better exposure. Hope they get back on the road quickly.

Re: AK & stranded

You could try to post this on ADVrider website, they have several members in AK and some people who have left the bikes there.

Re: AK & stranded

Saturday John picked up his bike from the Dealership here in Anchorage, so he's back on two wheels... He didn't admit it, but may have enjoyed the cage for a different sitting position for a few days.
