You don't think it's be worth it to trailer it down there? You dont have a pickup or van(moving truck maybe) you could bring it down there in? It's a good price dont get me wrong I'd just hate to see someone sell their ride when they're really happy with it. IF I were me I'd rent a fuckin U-haul and haul it down there in the back of a moving van.

I looked into that, but the lady and I are just going to fill up our cars with our junk and drive down there. I would rent a trailer and bring the bike, but neither of our cars has a hitch. I'd throw it in the back of a U-haul but I just finished school and I don't have a job yet, so $1/mile plus fuel is a bit out of our price range. Shipping the bike down there would cost $800, etc...

So yeah. Love the bike, but it's going to be more trouble than its worth to move it across the country.

u-ship will ship it for less than 300$, a trailer hitch is 140$ for any car. i have one on my small 4 cylinder and it does wonderfully towing a trailer with a bike in i.

good luck either way man

Like they said, you can put a hitch on the car. Craigslist and junk yards have cheap trailerhitches. Ebay for a cheap wiring harness. Or just leave it at your parents for the summer and greyhound up and ride it back down when you have more money.

I'm also thinking of buying a supermoto down there so that's what will happen if this sells. I can't find a hitch for my car (1998 528i) anywhere for less than $300. If this doesn't sell my dad is going to ride it to Texas this summer and fly back.

Damn that's a good dad willing to ride a bike with no wind resistance that far and then buy his own plane ticket home. If he does this you better at least buy the man a beer.

Not going to argue that for a second. He is also truck shopping so he might buy one down there when he comes. nothing like a Texas truck for rust free.
