I am new here. I live in South Carolina and there are not many WR-Xs available around me here for sale. I decided to venture out and look further for the bike I want. I found a bike in Texas and have been communicating with the owner over the last few days. I can have the motorcycle independently inspected so I can have a report for my own peace of mind. I am having him make a thorough video of the bike's condition as well so I we are covered on the details up front. Now I'm focused on what it will take to get from A to B.
I have figured it would cost around $350-$400 to fly out and ride it back (1000 miles) but that would be exhausting and take a long time which I don't have.
I have figured it would cost around $1250-$1350 to fly out and rent a truck to bring it back.
I have looked into having the bike shipped via motorcycle shipping company or even possibly UPS Freight.
This brings me to my first question on this forum. Has anyone ever shipped a motorcycle and if so, what is the most economical method to do so?
