Anyone know of the best cross country trucking line to move big bikes?

Interested in a Miami to Seattle shipment this spring for a west coast ride, then ship back.

Any help, especially from those who have used one, is appreciated.

I would use a Motorcycle specific shipper. The usually supply the pallet that secures the bike. For greater safety I would purchase a reusable shipping container that is totally enclosed and then also use a m/c cover on the bike too. That is the best way to do it with people that ship only Motorcycles.

Dude, The money you spend on shipping both ways would buy you an enclosed trailer. :thumbup: And you could always sell it later.

How about renting a bike out there. Alot cheaper then shipping your bike, I know you like to have your own bike, but look at the trouble to ship and maybe damaged.Unless your going to be there for a month or longer to make it worth while.:doorag:

Kinda off subject, but where did you get your gator at? Been looking for somewhere to book a hunt at. Lol, I just looked at your profile, and that thing is STILL alive... Whoops. But if you know that would be cool.

Bike rental is about $125 per day in or around Yellowstone.

If you were just going to ride a couple days, I would agree with you. That would make sense.

If you are going to ride a week, that may not be cost effective.
