This is no HD unique offer. Join AMA - they have had discounts on shipping for years - extremely reliable and cost effective.

I've used Forward Air (3 day airfreight truck LAX-EWR) $500.00 dock-to-dock.



$600.00 seems a bit much...

Hmmm... Atlanta to San Jose by motorcycle has some nice sights - Colorado, Utah, Nevada, California... Should be around 2500 miles. 2 weeks!? I could do that in 3 days easy. 2 if I didn't mind being really sore...

Personally, I love this idea. With a limited amount of vacation days, there are spots that I am just not going to be able to ride in the measly week I have off. I've tried to plan a cross-country trip to see my son in Ontario, but the ride out and the ride back pretty much eat up my holidays, leaving no time to spend time with him. I can fly out on airmiles, meet my bike out there, and have a nice riding holiday taking him around on the bike.

Free Market. Isn't that the system Enron operated in? Or was that called the free market dominated by corporate greed?

Baton Rouge, LA to Loveland, CO - $651 one way, I think I will just rent a bike and save a ton of cash.

Default Isn't Allied a heck of a lot cheaper?

Allied moves a LOT of bikes. Granted not every town has an Allied agent (but does have a HD dealership) but with their MC skids, load/unload is trivial. Maybe HD is using Allied's service. Both HQ's are fairly near to each other.



I wish HD would rent Buells instead of just the tourer crap.

Default Re: ''Another high-quality service...'' from Harley.

Granted that H-D's rates seem higher than the norm, but could it be due to the fact that Harleys as a group are a good bit heavier and (for baggers) wider than the general run of bikes; therefore of greater actual cost to ship (more diesel oil and fewer bikes per trailer, respectively) and thus of higher cost?



In other words, are they simply doiing good cost forcasting?
