    Shipping a motorcycle

    Hello,

    I live in Boise Idaho and I am thinking about buying a bike that is hard to find around these parts. I am considering two examples - one is is Dallas Texas and the other in Phoenix Arizona.

    Anyone have any tips on the cheapest way to get one of these bikes on my driveway?

    Anyone have a company they would recommend?

    Any help is much appreciated!
    Michael M.

    PS: I know someone is thinking - fly down there and have fun ridding the bike back up to Idaho. That won't work for me as: 1) One of the bikes is a project; 2) The other bike isn't a project but I still am as a rider. :-) I am experienced riding around a very small town (usually limited to 45mph) and on dirt trails but I am in no way ready to hit the freeway with giant trucks to blow me off the road.

    they strap the bike to a pallet and cover it, make one way trip to your doorstep.
