How do you get a bike shipped across country? Is it feesable? Cost effective?

I don't know of any "cheap" way to get a bike cross country. if it was a $30k Harley then $500 to $600 shipping wouldn't seem bad but on TW's and BW's etc it's a much higher shipping to cost ratio and it doesn't really work out well. If you can get the bike crated yourself you can probably ship it for $350 to $400 from Cali to Florida but then you have the crating costs and the time hauling the crate to the local dock which can burn up half a day or more in some cases. I used to pay $150 from Socal to Sacramento to save me the 8 hour drive but now they want $300 plus for the same 400 mile haul

The question you SHOULD be asking is "After I get my one way plane ticket to Cali what routes would you guys suggest for the ride back to NJ?". It is officially riding season:D

Ohhhh I know how to get home. I just don't know how to get out of work and from under the load of kids in college and more on the way. If I did I would be in on the Alaska Raid!

Thanks everyone, deposit taken from one of our own.
This has been a GREAT bike and a lot of fun to ride. I also sold my BMW 1150 GS, I am trying to get down to one bike. I have to many toys and not enough time.
To be 100% honest your bike is/has been my favorite TW on this entire forum. I would LOVE for you to build me a skidplate which I WOULD be willing to pay handsomely for. Hint......hint.

I was lucky enough to inherit one of Toyanvil's racks and it was the best TW rack I had ever seen. A tad narrower than a CR and about 4" longer with a flat rear bar as all racks should have :) It also had dual Tool Tube mounts. I'm still gonna try to talk him into designing and marketing these things because everybody would want one !!!

Please leave it in your will to me! :)

If that was for sale, consider it sold..
