    Default ChopCult Travel Assistance

    Ok, not to compare to the Journal, but lets get real.... The Journal has had that thread forever, and its not been taken advantage of. Travel season is upon us, and lots of us are hitting the roads on freshly built bikes and may need help from time to time. Plus, JJ'ers don't really know all the Japcrap that some of us ride and build....

    I offer up my time and tools anytime someone is stranded... Just don't be high on crack or I'll make it known that you are no longer welcome... That said, lets do this, and do it right!


    Im thinking (sometime in the future, I am spreadsheet retarded) that we should make an Online Spreadsheet available to Members only, that way we can print out what we need for our state/area and hit the road.... What do you guys think? I'll get us started. I don't want to put phone numbers online, so for now, lets get the basics online and PM's can be enough. If you are traveling and might need assistance, PM / email the people you MIGHT need and get their numbers... Or could just be a good excuse to drop in, make a new friend, crash in the yard, etc... Hows that? Im open to better suggestions as well...


    THE BASICS: (Highlight your area in RED to make scrolling through that much easier...

    Resources: MIG, TIG; Most Fabrication Tools; Metric and Standard Hand Tools; Small Truck / Sometimes an 8 Foot Trailer; Garage Workshop; Hot Dogs and Beer (Unless you drink all my beer, then I have none, haha)

    Other: I usually have plenty of room for a nights stay, or until you get your bike running again. I also don't mind driving an hour or so in a time of need...

    I feel like this will only work with phone numbers though. Like if I'm stuck in the middle of NC, I probably won't have your email on hand, and even if I did, probably wouldn't have a computer. But if i saved it onto my phone, that'd work. But I guess, you can PM everyone that replies to this list and ask for their number if you know you'll be passing through.

    I know I'm probably gonna need some help along the way somewhere. I'm gonna probably be riding to the Twine Ball with a few people from Boston; so unless we're super lucky, I'm pretty sure there is gonna be some bike issues coming up somewhere down the road.

    Name: Anthony Chen

    Location: Boston, MA

    Email: anthonychen72@yahoo.com

    Resources: Wrenches and Screw Drivers...all the basic stuff you need to put a bike back together. My bike is my only transportation, so no truck or anything.,

    Other: I can hook it up with somewhere to stay and somewhere to keep the bike if you can't get it running, as long as I don't get a creepy vibe from you, and I have FOOD! love food.

    I'm in. I've never been stranded by my bike, knock on wood, but have run into complications. Where ever you may be there is someone or someplace where you can access a computer. Trust me it worked for me this last summer. I hate coffee but Starbucks or some other coffee shack always has some jobless hippy with a computer sitting there at all hours of the day

    Name: Tony, or Anthony, whatever is easiest (I'm not good with names)

    Location: Redding, CA NorCal

    email: rustrocket84@gmail.com

    Resources: Mig, OA setup, can arrange for a trailer if needed. Willing to drive just about anywhere within a couple hours to help if I can.

    For guys with Harley's I'm friends with the service manager at the local dealer so the service is better than normal. Also plenty of yard space for a tent, and the garage fridge always has beer.

    This is a great idea, the brotherhood and helping out is part of why we all got into this in the first place. I am more than happy to be in charge of building a spreadsheet. Wish I was as good with a wrench as I am with Excel. Let me know Hugh...
