My son is on his second deployment in Iraq with USMC. He found a Yamaha motorcycle on Ebay that he really wanted but it was in Texas, we are in Indiana. He decided to go for it and purchased the bike, but then I had to figure out how we could get it shipped for him. The seller was anxious to leave town for the holidays so I placed a request on Uship in the hopes that someone would be able to help us out. I had three bids within the first two hours. Steve with Western Hauling was able to pick up the bike in Texas two days later and we had the bike in Indiana 5 days after buying it! My son is excited although has only been able to view the photos I've sent him, but he's due back in the states in early February so we'll have a belated Christmas then. Thanks!!
