My sister and brother-in-law were willing to sell this 2003 V-Rod to me to keep it in the family. The problem was that the bike was in North Carolina and I'm in southern California. I agonized for weeks about how to get this bike from there to here. My first thought was to fly out and ride it back, but the weather hasn't been that kind to the east coasters, and, I wasn't sure that my 60 year old butt was up to the 2000 mile ride. Anyway, one of the guys at work said "why don't you ship it?" Well, how do you go about finding a trustworthy shipper that will treat a priceless treasure as if it were his own? It's not that easy, there is no 'I'll bring your motorcycle to you' company in the phone book. Anyway, I called the local Harley dealer, but, they just wanted to sell me one of theirs instead. Then I called Eagle Rider in Los Angeles. They let me speak to a lady I only know as Barbara. She pointed me to Uship. Let me tell you, it was all down hill from there. I logged on, put my info in, and within 24 hours I had six bids to ship the bike. I picked paposteve even though his bid was in the higher range. His feedback was stellar and he was very flexible with pickup and delivery date and times. Besides, it would have cost me a lot more to fly out and ride back and the time spent to get the road dirt and bugs of the bike. Steve made the whole transaction a pleasure. Uship and Steve are at the top of my list the next time I have to move anything. J.J. Bender
