Space is at a premium when shipping, so you will be asked to fold back mirrors or other protruding equipment, and to secure or remove saddlebags and hard luggage. In most cases, you will not have to drain your gas tank or remove the battery. Give the motorcycle a good cleaning before it is shipped, and take photographs so you can document its condition. Be sure your shipping company knows about any mechanical problems associated with the motorcycle prior to shipping. Be sure to notify them about any leaks that could damage other vehicles in the truck.
