    XBox or Motorcycle?

    Anyone planning on bringing an XBox? Or anyone riding to OKC? I was thinking I might ride down from Iowa through Missouri and Arkansas. Fellow riders welcome

    If ACD ends up telling me "take it or leave it" for T75, I'll have to bring my trailer/bike with me.

    you got a redirect to St. Louis? I thought you were going to KDAB now? Anyhoo, I have a good buddy who moved to St. Louis last year for work and he really likes it there.

    Yeah I got the verbal "You will definitely get KDAB," should have known it would be too good to be true and the FAA would say "He livin in Daytona and he want Daytona and we have 5 spots for Daytona? Aww hell naw we gonna send this dude from Washington state instead." I sent my rep an email to forward to the ATO saying I would like to stay in FL seeing as how I have never even been to Missouri, but whatever, I'll roll with it if need be. I have heard the place is a dump, though, and I hate the Cardinals. Oh and it's 1000+ miles further from the beach than I would prefer to live. I've spoiled me self rotten living 5 houses from the beach for $500/mo.

    Ya the cost of living here would be way awesome if you're making Level 9 pay. I can't stand Orlando haha. Just grew used to the beach life, and Daytona in particular I guess. Just had a pretty friggin sweet weekend at the Rolex24

    A friend of mine living in OKC had his custom rocket stolen just before Thanksgiving. Not sure what the circumstances were but he was pretty upset about it. It was probably dismantled hours after its disappearance. Make sure you lock those forks.

    I'd expect that animosity from my wife, but not you ladies, lol. Moline wasn't my first choice I must admit, but if staffing levels are okay I will check out fast. I hear there is plenty of time to play golf, bar hop, and do other stuff on the weekends so...

    Nice ride! I drive an 08 cbr600. Would love to cruise if you bring it. I imagine you would pretty much be moving to okc then immediately to MO?

    Awesome bike, I have an '83 Kawasaki CSR 305 belt drive that looks exactly the same. Having trouble with the points ignitions system though. I rode an '04 SV650s a few years until I sold it in June to pay bills :/

    I might be driving from SEA to OKC not looking forward to it but KPUB is pretty close to OKC so I might as well.

    Re: XBox or Motorcycle?

    Thanks guys gosh I'm blushing like a Saigon streetwalker...yeah I bought it last July, it's my first bike picked it up with 10k original miles on it for $1200, freakin love it. It's shaft drive, so it's pretty much bulletproof. I ride it to work every day, starts right up even when it hits the occasional 30 degrees down here in FL. It's mechanically and cosmetically perfect, other than the few spotlets of rust it's starting to pick up on account of the ocean breeze, but that is to be expected here.

    @Chris I'm waiting to hear back from CS on whether I have another option besides MO but if I end up at the academy in March bound for T75 yes I'll be moving right to STL from there and double hell yes we'll be cruising for some Oklahoma mullet-clad Marlboro Red-toting trailer goddesses

    Ya I was 1 of 3 that had TOL's for the tower, and 2 got through the academy last year before sequestration. I think the tower manager had requested 5 so I'm sure they'll be getting more in the up coming bid
