Way beyond reasonable...

Here is my 3470 coming off the decontamination station at Lake Pueblo, CO which is where I boated from 2000 to August 2009 when we moved here.

I agree, nice setup all around. I particularly dig the dirt bike in the back of the truck. Looks like you know how to enjoy your weekends.

Nhaaa - we hired a company to tow the 3470. The thing was a monster, though for the short hauls, my F250 (V10 gasser) pulled it around quite nicely. Big trailers like that were not all that uncommon out west. I saw 36 and 38ft on trailers too and some VERY impressive White tow vehicles

Did you do a USHIP thing back in the day Jeff?? Seems I remember seeing some of your posts in the form of Feedback.. prior to me joining the forum.... as I too was looking in to transport options.. (oddly enough of a 3470 from MD to OH) thus, why I think I saw you on USHIP.. so maybe I knew you before I really knew you.. ?? :?: I think it was a CO to FLA haul too.. & yea, I'll bet it was you... ;)

Oops, knew it wasn't a Harley, :mrgreen: . Still looks like a fun toy.

When I was a kid I raced Yamaha's in a 125cc class. Great bikes, took a beating and kept on kicking. Of course that was a lot of years and more than a few pounds ago.

i raced 80's, 125's, 250's open, I had a big Maico 490 that was so fast it was easy to ride.... know what I mean? I never felt like I worked hard on that bike and just blew by everyone else. I raced some enduros in Colorado, but i'm WAY too old for that crap now....

I just sold a 1976 RD400 street bike (2cyl, 2stroke) on ebay and am looking at another up in Tarpon Springs... a Kenny Roberts Special - RZ350. I've still got the the 600, but I think I'll sell it and work on project bikes. oh - and i've got a YZ250F race bike, which isn't nearly fast enough for a 240lb old fart like me...

Hi Jeff,
Nice boat and trailer! I just purchased a 3370 Esprit and am looking for a trailer for it. May I ask where you bought yours ? And how much should I expect to pay?

That was a Metalcraft quad-axle trailer and it was cool...I don't know how much it would cost new, as it came with the boat.. but I sold for $1500 once I got to Florida.
