Four of us Dave PJ Annie and Doug will be,They are outside Denver at Longmont which is where Annie and Doug live I believe its on the way to the Main highway I.80 or whatever it is (the one to Bonneville)  they will be arriving on wednesday evening but the Bike should be there this saturday,
we have hired a trailer from U Haul as we will need to use it as a recovery after runs its not Ideal but it will have to do.
Dave PJ Annie and Doug are picking the 2 RVs up in Denver on Thursday morning and driving on over to Wendover we are also taking a pick up truck to use with the trailer its gona be a right convoy going on,hope they remember to pick us up at SSC on saturday
Might be an Idea though,when will you be leaving for the salt and will it cause you any hassle.
Cheers Oz

OOPs I forgot to mention the U haul thing may be the best option as it dosent look that long but I think the wheel base is something like 82" which makes the whole thing very long something in the region of 8 ft long we were originaly going to get a bike trailer from them but it wouldnt fit.

Oz, hope you are getting either the 5x9 open ramp trailer or the 5x8 enclosed trailer. I am a u haul dealer and these are your best choices. If you dont need an enclosed trailer the 5x9 ramp trailer is best for a motorcycle, ramp, tie downs.

God knows its 5X9 and the sides are about 26"high apparently, Annie has sorted this one out I hope it has a ramp it will be darned awkward if it hasnt.does that sound like the right one?

Thats the right one, and yes it has a ramp. The newer ones even have an indention for the front wheel of a motorcycle.

Best pass was 149 normally aspirated(on the sat nav just in case ) but we had problems with the nitrous and we couldn get any on the salt. Still that is only 18mph of the record so the way i see it we did well 3 of us got licensed and had a good time without breaking the bike or any bones.you lose 20 percent power at that altitude so the plan is to take 50 percent more than we need next time and have some spare if we can. Ttfn and thanks to all on the salt. staff Volunteers. Competitors.everyone.just the best time ever.      Oz
