I am in Des Moines and would be glad to help in any way I can.  My garage 
can always accommodate another motorcycle if you need a place to keep it for 
a time.

But, I have what could work out to be a much better solution for you.  Many 
of you old-timers on the list will remember Kim Shockey.  He made it out to 
a couple of the Colorado rides and was quite active on the list in the 
beginning.  I don't know if he still subscribes, but I haven't seen him post 
for quite some time.  Anyway, Kim lives about 30 miles north of Polo, 
Illinois on a farm and being the great guy he is, I am sure he would be 
happy to put up your bike in one of his buildings. I have a phone number and 
Email address for Kim I can send on in private.
