Trans America Trail sponsorship oppurtunity...

hey dudes... we are roughly 9 weeks away from embarking on the first ever moped crossing of the Trans America Trail...

we have secured, rebuilt, painted and outfitted the chase bus, modded most of our bikes, made shipping/travel arrangements, bought the maps and roll charts, plotted the course and are getting amped for departure...

however, we have lost a few riders and garnered no sponsorship from any of the BIG names that we are brand loyal to (NGK, Amsoil, etc) and will have to fund this solely out of pocket... we had high hopes of generating the needed $5000 from our crowd sourcing page and thus far have more "supporters" then dollars in the kitty...

We desperately need your help to see this project come to fruition and are asking all of you fine folks from the moped community for an assist... our rally.org page is set up to take donations in any denomination and we would be glad to recieve anything in the way of fiscal donation...

to help sweeten the deal, anyone donating $50 or more will get a "moped TAT" shirt, designed by Brett Epp... $100 or more will get your name or business logo printed and listed on the shirts and website... $500 or more and we will put your name and logo on a HUGE size vinyl decal on the chase bus and bikes as well as the t shirts... if anyone donates $1000 or more I will give them one of the Derbi piston ports we are building for the trip upon completion of the trail in July...

short of letting you rename our shop here in RVA or granting any sort of sex favors, it is suffice to say that we are willing to show our gratitude in any number of ways for the generosity you folks have shown us in helping see this epic first ever for mopeds become a reality...

in advance thanx...

You had me until you nixed sex favors. I still donated though...

Re: Trans America Trail sponsorship oppurtunity...

THANX bud... we truly couldnt do this without the support of you and the other rad dudes in the moped community...!

and before I forget...

if anyone is donating at the above listed big boy sponsorship levels please send me a PM with the amount you donated, shirt size, name/logo info for the shirts/bus decals and or where we are gonna ship this Derbi to after the ride...

*also... I can ask the boys about the sex acts... maybe Mike Beez will let you stroke his beard or sniff his seat or something weird...?

Re: Trans America Trail sponsorship oppurtunity...

SHIT...! I also forgot to add this...

if any of you wanted to, we still need a chase driver to man the helm of the bus and follow us from the back roads and county highways and etc that ghost the trail...

it is a lot to ask considering that the trail stretches nearly 4,200 miles from TN to OR. and is going to take more then a couple weeks to finish...

potentially though, if someone wanted to drive it from TN to Denver for the MA national rally and or from Denver to the finish in OR I can promise a nominal stipend for the trouble, as well as all the infused rice krispy treats as you can eat in Denver...

we ALSO are looking for a motorcycle scout to lead us out of Colorado... the homie Steve Brown is gonna take us as far as Denver on his moto, but we still need someone to scout the trail from Denver and beyond...

inquire within...

Re: Trans America Trail sponsorship oppurtunity...

if I end up quitting my job before the denver rally I will take the chase from denver to oregon.

Re: Trans America Trail sponsorship oppurtunity...

hey i am a loser with nothing to do, and a clean MVR.

get me to TN, i would drive the chase all the way. getting back to PA from OR tho, idk.

i am avail if needed.

Re: Trans America Trail sponsorship oppurtunity...

a bunch of people keep asking me about the expenditures on this thing and seem to have some sort of reservation about how much it is going to cost us to put this thing together...

it doesnt look like much, but this package of maps and roll charts cost us $400...!

couple this with an $1800 chase vehicle, the new motor, all the extra shit that goes into installing a new motor, the estimated $2500 in fuel and we are already at $5000...

A worthy cause and I wish u luck.

But relying on a population of largely unemployed moped peeps...Most of which cannot spring for new tires or necessary parts for their own bikes...doesn't seem like the best model.

I salute your endeavors nonetheless and will donate to your cause.

i was a taxi driver for 2 years. a payphone/ATM route service driver. jockey truck driver @ a railyard. my route service runs were 600 mile loops. i one had a job where i went down the east coast picking up dead cats and dogs at animal hospitals 1700mi. route.

if you are really serious. i will full boat my insurance and get AAA. so i kinda need a heads up. i also have lived in a 10x10 box, eat very little, drink lots of coffee and only sleep 4 hrs at a time.

the balls in BLK BLK's court now.

there was a strange omen, i went on an errand to a bicycle shop, there was a huge shop dog. it was a white pitbull, i was talking to the mechanic, i know him, about a stupid airpump hose. the dog was cool for three or four minutes minutes, then all of a sudden, she starts snapping out and charging at me for some odd reason. the lady who owns the dog and the shop said it was my hat? you think there would be a sign or something?

it's an almost freudian surrealistic reality. My town hates me now. i know it.

Re: Trans America Trail sponsorship oppurtunity...

Bump for the cause

Re: Trans America Trail sponsorship oppurtunity...

Takes some serious backbone to attempt this. Y'alls planning and preparation so far shows your determination.

Re: Trans America Trail sponsorship oppurtunity...

Re: Trans America Trail sponsorship oppurtunity...

Re: Trans America Trail sponsorship oppurtunity...
