    In need of Help in Jacksonville FL

    Hello southeast region!

    In November, I road my GS Adventure from New Hampshire down to Ponte Vedra Florida and let my bike with my Dad. I planned on returning in April to pick up the bike and ride back home.

    I'm trying to get my 18K Mile service performed as well as new Tires, brakes, etc. Looks like BMW of Jacksonville is already booking into April and my return trip is entirely dependent on warm-weather.

    With that said, I need your help.

    I'd like to enlist someone here who can go to my Dad's place, grab the bike and drop it off in Orange Park @ BMW. He'd snap a photo of your ID for security and I'd ask you just treat the bike well and drop it off in one piece.

    He also has a set of aftermarket Crash-bars and a new set of front & rear tires. So you'll likely need a trailer or a 2nd transport for that (although if you load all of that up on the bike, please send photos).

    The bike is on the center stand w/ the battery on the tender. He has the keys so you'll need to reinstall battery, seat, put key in and go.

    Please PM or EMAIL me if you can help. Going to cross-post this to ADVRider forums as well.

    PM me if you get stuck with no offers. The wife and I can make the trip for you if all else fails.

    Just going to do this one more bump. I'm happy to pay for someone's time who's in the area.

    Thanks again

    BMW of Jax has a pickup service or a towing company, which would be the safest way of doing this. Talk to Gene.
    I unfortunately am to busy right now to help. But you may also reach out to BMW-NEF, our local club and see if you can find some help there
