MountainMan, guess your right, time saving compare to the cost is gainless.
To shipping the bike ahead is not possible because I have to to some things to mount. Burkbusters, a new seat and maybe alu panniers.
It would be greate to find someone for a hook up, but just in time when I am ready to leave LA? If someone needs to go north with his truck / van, need someone to rotate driving and have some space left for the KLR, why not. But this would be luck.
First of all I need to set up the time frame, I have two options, May/June or August/September. I will find this out in the next few weeks.
