i checked out those rental places, $90 for the day.

Did you ask the dealership if they any ideas? My local guy will come by my house and pick my bike up if the weather's crappy.

Gives the guys in service something to do when nobody's riding.

i live about 35 miles away from my dealer. they do pickup bikes for free but not if they're have to drive 35 miles for only one. bastards.

i want to get my bike to the shop well before the first 50 degree day since that's when everyone else takes their bike in for service.

You can rent a pickup at Home Depot and I think on weekends you can get them from enterprise for 19.95 a day. I think Jason's idea might be ideal though. 14.95 for the trailer, does your IS300 have a tow kit?

Hey bro,
If you need I can see if my Xploder wants to pick up a trailer and take a ride one day. I'm offerin as long as I don't get called into work. But I would assume if there's snow on the ground, you don't want to trailer your bike anyway. Let me know what you think bro.
