    Motorcycle moving options

    I got a friend who called me for an opinion on freight companies or motorcycle transporters. He is buying a bike in MO and wants to get it to CO. It's an r9T if that matters.

    I remember there was a post recently from someone about someone local that they recommended.

    Who has done it and can you give me some options?

    My recommendation is to have the buyer and seller work through their local BMW dealer. They're going to know who to use and who not to. I did this when I bought my Buell from a dealer in Wisconsin. It arrived without a scratch.

    Contrarily, when I moved from DC to Charleston, the movers packed my Tuono in with my house stuff and broke the rear turn signals off... Not a major issue, but it was obvious they had no idea what they were doing. Moving from Charleston to Denver, I did the same thing and the Tuono arrived unscathed... Judging from how much of the rest of my stuff got jacked up, it's a miracle the bike made it at all, let alone unharmed!


    Do not put off living the life you dream of. Next year may never come. If we are always waiting for something to change...
    Retirement, the kids to leave home, the weather or the economy, that's not living. That's waiting!
    Waiting will only leaves us with unrealized dreams and empty wishes.

    I used haulbikes.com two years ago and had no issue with their service.
