    stradle bike
    insert key and turn key
    put in neutral
    Press run and start

    And RIDE!

    Sorry Mike -- Had to do it.

    When I got my second k-9 gateway pick a shipper and it worked fine but I have no idea who they were.

    Fair enough -- Just it being 10 I wouldn't try either! Hell at 10 if its stock EHC I wouldn't even bother trying to start it. (Both my K-9's EHC died and both were fail during cold as first signs Below 40)

    mrytle beach? I thought you were looking at one in KC. I was figuring up mileage to give you a bid. Sure you don't want a Mastiff? I have a good deal on one in excellent shape. And for asking price, (which is well worth it), I'd bring it to you.

    I used Premeir Motorcycle Transport to have my Mastiff shipped from North Carolina to Ohio. Cost 750.00 for enclosed transport. Received the bike in about 10 days.

    I used dedicated vehicle transport when I bought my bike, Kansas to Arizona was $650. Took about a week, everything went well.

    I have used USHIP, where the haulers bid for your business.

    Could be someone hauling back from Bike Week could provide superior service and would help pay for their trip fuel?

    That’s a bummer Mike, keep looking you will find something that hasn’t been neglected. The problem in coastal areas is the salt air that stuff is on the same level at toxic! If whatever is exposed to it regularly and not properly cared for it will be heavily corroded and permanently damaged
