Shipping the FLHTK Cross Country

Road Trips - Harley Davidson Forums - www.hdforums.com
I've got my west-to-east trip planned out and yesterday, I set out to arrange the shipping of the bike. Last year, Haulbikes shipped my bike from HD in Oakland to HD in NH for $575, but I was without my bike for a good month or longer. Hey, it was part of the price I had to pay. I called them yesterday to arrange shipping again and was told it would take 10-12 weeks for the bike to get there! Obviously, I'm not going to be without my bike for that long...not an option.

After doing some research here, I called a few places and checked out some places on the web. I just booked transportation with Federal Motorcycle Transport from MA to OR. It's a little more pricey at $734, but I guess it could have been worse. They allow the saddle bags and tourpack to be fully packed which is a positive for me. All they require is for the gas to be drained(not completely). The best thing is that I will only be without the bike for about 1-1/2 - 2 weeks max...that is if everything goes as planned. Just wanted to pass this on as this seems to be a pretty good alternative. For a little bit, I was considering just riding the bike to OR vs shipping, but time constraints do not allow.
