Ok, so here is my story. It is a story of a motorcycle that happened to be in the wrong part of the country. I had convinced my son and his friend to use the time they had after finishing high school to tour the States on a motorcycle, I guess reminiscent of a fantastic trip I took 20 years ago. No problem, I thought, I will help them get two adequate bikes for the trip from the local dealers. No such luck. After weeks of rummaging through local used motorcycle stocks, I had to concede that this was not a workable option. I looked online in cycletrader, only to discover that if I really wanted to get the deal that was right, I would need to search all 48 States. Nothing locally. The only question was: how to move a bike at a reasonable cost which is 1000 or more miles away. This is when I discovered uShip. What a great site. Easy to use (no, uShip is not paying me to write this!), easy to post what transportation needs you have, then just sit back and relax. What a great win-win forum, you have people travelling long distances with vacant capacity and hook them up with people like yourself who don't have the time and resources to make one way flight and then drive or ride for days. You have the option to connect and ask questions before accepting a bid. In the end, as it worked out for me, you meet amazing people who help you solve the problem. My first motorcycle arrived tonight, a warm early summer night. The black and beautiful machine is now sitting in my driveway. I feel like getting right on it and riding into the night, revisit the feeling of decades past. What a great experience. Thanks Henri and Joanne of DRP Enterprises who brought the bike, and thanks to uShip for letting us find each other. Mike
