    how far is??

    how far is Bridgeport Ohio its on the border of west virginia right off of interstate 70 to Appleton , Wisconsin ??
    the reason I'm asking is that I'm hoping to buy a suzuki T500l and it need to be at appleton etc and shipped from there to uk.

    Go to Goggle Maps and it can plot the distance for you.

    Nice "smoker" John..........I bought, and then sold, one exactly like that one 2 years ago....same color. A buddy of mine bought it ($1800) to match his same-color Water Buffalo. He collects two-strokes (mainly exotic) here in Birmingham. Has a 1972 H2-1000 4-cylinder in his collection (built here in the states, not by Milnard....or whatever his name is). Yours looks to be nicer than the one I had. Good find!! As you can tell, I now have a NC700X in the stable along side my little CB500X with your rear rack!!

    Google states:

    682 miles
    10 hours and 3 minutes
    They are in different time zones here in the states.
    This route does have toll roads where you will need money to pay the tolls.
    A route listed without tolls is 17 minutes longer.
    Will you be picking it up and driving out to visit someone in Appleton?
    There are crating companies that pick up, crate, and ship nationally and internationally.
    You might be able to have it shipped directly from Bridgeport to the UK.
    Here is one example: Motorcylce & Automobile Shipping | Craters & Freighters
    But at the same time, if you were looking to come over yourself and bless us with a visit from you and your nice lady, well, we would enjoy that all the more!

    God bless!!

    all arranged as far as importing. a customer who buys my grab rails import bikes.
    not far from me about an hour and a half drive.
    as it happens he wants more grab rails so this will cover most of the cost.
    probably all in all cost me about $700.
    making him 50 grab rails etc, all for Kawasaki triples.
    as far coming to the states we would love to and to celebrate our 40th.
    but we're not interested in disneyland or las vegas.
    we like to see how the other half live.
    most of our holidays abroad we hire a scooter to get around.
    its the only way to see other kind of life than all the commercial junk.lol
    just finding the right place.
    most hols agents here las/disney/orlando is all they've got .
