One-way plane ticket riding my new bike home 12hrs!!

I finally pulled the trigger (not fully intentional) on a gen 2 bike. Board member Ampzx was needing to sell his bike. I didn't need the bike but I wasn't going to let someone else steal off eBay, I put my max possible bid in to help him get the price up and 5 days later I just booked my plane ticket to go pick it up. I was outbid as of Friday but Sunday night I received an email saying there had been a bid retraction and I was now the current high bidder with 5 hours left. The bike looks extremely clean and he said it just had its 4000 mile service (yes less than 5k on the odometer), not sure but I bet the 800 mile trip home will probably be the longest non-stop trip its been on. I should land around 3:00 Wednesday afternoon and hopefully on the road around 4 or 5, if I get tired I'll stop but I atleast want to get to Knoxville, TN. Oh, the trip is Philadephia, PA to Nashville, TN. Upon conversation with Ampzx we have already come to the conclusion that I am a country hick, who has never been on a plane or ridden in a taxi and I hear people up north are kinda rude. I am not going to lie I am nervous and excited. I'll keep this thread updated but for now here are copies of some of his pics of the bike

Congrats! Have a safe trip. I'm in Greensboro, NC, probably less than an hour off your projected path if you want to overnight somewhere where the bike can be garaged and checked over, then take a more leisurely and fun trip through the mountains to TN. Don't hesitate to PM if needed.
