Lubbock, TX to Stockton,CA

My son is in the process of buying his first K12lt and could not of picked a worse time. he just had surgery on his knee! Oh well the right deal showed up and he took it..
Any suggestions on shipping companies? or transportation.
I would fly down and ride it to him but Mr Madden and I share the same feelings about flying, so that's out of the picture.
Thanks for the Help in advance

Kenny,
Some folks "share rides"... If you were to check out on Craigs List you may find someone coming this way looking for a "rideshare"...even if only part of the way.

The other option, if no one from here is going, would be to take the old Greyhound... a nasty way to travel these days... yet, might be the solution to fit your schedule.

It would only cost the airfare plus gas and lodging... and 1350 miles or so are an easy 2 day ride.

I might be up for it, but would have to fly Dallas -> Lubbock and then fly back home. For $700-800, might be cheaper to ship. DUnno. . .

I have a kendon in phoenix if he wants to use that and go pick it up.

I had a bike shipped from MI to AZ with harley davidson (they use a broker), they were great on the timing, delivery was right-on target, etc. Cost me about 900 bucks for a sport bike (BMW K1200S).The LT may cost more. It was door to door pickup/delivery.

At the price of gas (goes up a dime a week in CA lately) it might be cheeper to have it shipped...3.85/gal last nite, ouch....geo

Just used a carrier called Keyboard Carriers when I bought my CLC from the Grand Rapids, MI BMW dealer and had it shipped to West Palm Beach. Total cost was $ 525.00 and that included a standard $ 20,000.00 of insurance coverage. They were great. They had the right equipment. They were prompt on pick-up and delivered it when they said they would. I got their name from BMW of Denver where I almost bought a black CLC from. They usually carry pianos but fill in with motorcycles. Ours was the only bike on the shipment and the rest of the trailer was filled with Yamaha pianos. Not a scratch on the new bike.

We use www.keyboardmotorcycleshipping.com to ship all the bikes we sell out of state. They specialize in pianos and M/C and we have had very good luck with them...
