I wasn't sure about shipping my Harley to FL just to ride for a few days during bike week. But we Midwesterners have been waiting to ride since November and we are itchy. It had been snowing in Chgo since FOREVER. The bids that I had received from UShip were ok a little higher than I expected... but Taylor Welty's was the best. His price seemed almost unreal but it wasn't. Kind of funny that everything about the shipping worked out fine. But when I got to Daytona Beach it POURED buckets and we were stuck there one night (we were staying in Orlando). So we slept on the bikes on the boardwalk and when we decided the next morning to try to make it back to Orlando, my wonderful bike WOULD NOT START. After many push start attempts I had it towed to Orlando and I rode b#tch for the rest of the trip. Dang! Taylor brought it back to Chgo..well actually he took it straight to Calumet Harley Davidson for me. Danged starter problem. I will definitely use UShip again. I found UShip when I was just perusing the itnernet for information about bike shipping. Cool site.
