... th Columbian method, but you're gonna need a lot of balloons and olive oil and the parts will probably smell funny for awhile.

I used Federal, which is part of Allied Van lines. My dealer recommended them. It cost around $700.00 to ship a Ducati 996 from Dallas to LA and back to Dallas. They were on time with pick up and delivery. Also, the bikes were fine, no problems. It is cheaper if you ship from dealer to dealer instead of home to home.

If you ship with this method, be sure to tie the clutch and brake levers to the grip. It makes it much easier to remove the handlebars.

how about just ride it? catch the bus or train home. There's the Auto-train out of Lorton, VA just south of you, too.

The cheapest way would be to rent a pick-up and drive it down, or ride it down, then rent a Metro to drive home.

Gotta say that DC to Pensacola is not that far! Most of it is a pretty nice ride too! Ride it or use the non-riding-cruiser-tourer-my-butt-ain't-hard-enough method - put it in a truck and drive it down yourself...seen folks in Georgia do it to Daytona (and in all fairness saw a K12LT and an Ultra Classic from Nebraska in a truck, yeah tight fit, heading to Sturgis, while on a K12LT with a buddy on an Ultra Classic that we rode from Georgia. but I digress) all the time. Must be SOMETHING to it...
