I was planning on buying this motorcycel from a guy in Texas, but needed it shipped to Chicago. I needed to get a decent price for shipping (around $200 or less) to make it worth my while to buy the bike. I tried standard shipping, and it was $500-$700. Then I tried U ship. To my surpise, there were two shippers coming thru Texas that week enroute to Chicago, and they both bid around $200. The shipper I chose stayed in great communication with me along the way, was extremely flexible, and delivered the bike in great shape! Thanks to the shipper and to Uship ! I already have posted another shipping request from Florida to Chicago. Thanks.
