Shipping recommendations??

Just bought a bike just south of Pittsburg, unfortunately i'm in Jacksonville, FL. The dealership won't ship forwardair or crate, so i'm looking at a door to door delivery which is costly.

Worst case i drive 1500 miles round trip and pick it up.

Oh, yea i got a helluva deal on the bike.

Shipper - Keyboard Shipping

These guys took it from Nashville, TN to Sacramento, CA for just over $500, and it had no dings, scratches, nicks, or anything. Recommended.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'

I'd take you up on that mattfr12, the dealership is Tom Clark in Belle Vernon. My biggest concern is my fuel pump in my GMC Sierra is whinning like a b***h and about to poop out, don't really want to take chances with getting stuck somewhere.
