transporting a bike?

I thought this might be a good place to ask.

I'm considering purchasing a bike in FLA and I live in the western part of NC. Do you guys know any contacts in either general area that would assist with shipping a bike from FLA to NC?

Hope you guys don't mind me posting this question here,

Florida to North Carolina

From where in FL to where in NC?

My daughter lives in Cary and we visit frequently.

Depending on time frame, I might be able to assist.

Send me a PM with the details.

FL to NC

I live in Etowah, I travel to Miami/Fort Lauderdale on business fairly often.

I'd happily ride it to NC for an airline ticket.

Or, you could drive down with a trailer.

thanks

Thanks guys, but it looks like the plan has changed, found a better deal in KY. Hopefully I'll be able to move on that deal within the next two weeks depending on what happens with my job.

You guys are great.

i'm in Bryson City

I'm in Bryson City, NC. About an hour west of Asheville.

Was looking at that 1000 in KY, but I might have changed my mind to go with a 650. I don't need the bigger engine unless I put on 100lbs. Which I pray isn't going to happen.

It wouldn't be so bad if you put 100 lbs on the back seat.

Go hakafugu yourself.
