I would take it . But... I will be moving to New Mexico shortly and set up a good size shop there.
( and Bluntz would hate to deliver it now or soon, in Cali where I am currently located. Heck, I live here and hated to come to Calif when I drove OTR 48. )
Otherwise I would do it up right.
I eat ugly bikes up.

Over
The
Road
As in long-haul trucking. An American expression, I guess.

Yup... I've been around and working with trucking for as long as I can remember... grew up in the business as my Dad ran the trucking division of a private company starting from before I was born until he retired at over 70...

So... "over the road" as opposed to what? Under the ocean? :haha

Never made sense to me. Generally "OTR" is a trucking job that travels long enough distances or routes where the driver is away from home for days, weeks, or even months at a time... I always wondered if the term was originally "on the road"... short for "living on the road"... and somehow morphed into "over the road" as sayings tend to do sometimes.
