Dealers and ebay sellers use Forward Air and charge $200 anywhere in the continental US that Forward Air services, you'll have to crate it yourself. A local dealer may be able to help you with that. Find Forward Air at [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Just an FYI, ive heard many complaints about Forward Air on other forums. Claims of beaten up crates and/or bikes. A guy on TT recieved a bike with something like $900 in damages, and forward air agreed to pay like 200.

Not trying to influence your choice or anything; just relaying what ive heard.

I've used Forward Air on three separate occasions, and never had a problem with the merchandise after it was delivered.

Just an FYI.

Now, Motomans friend Ryan however, was able to do some damage to the tires with that staple gun of his..........:

I've heard nothing but good things about Forward Air. Lots of roadracers have used them to ship race bikes all over the country.

But the cost is going to be a bit more than $200. The last time I checked on their website it was going to be about $450 to ship a bike from Vegas to Pittsburgh.

LMAO!! I completely forgot about that one....however it wasn't Ryan with the staple gun it was my ex-brother-in-law Mike. Still pretty funny though.

I have never had any issues with forward air, I have used them several times.

If it was a pneumatic staple gun it'd still be a forward air problem
