So who handles shipping bikes inter-island? I found an R80ST for sale on Maui last year, but I couldn't figure how to get it to the Big Island. There are not many bikes available near Volcano.
Thw only venor I found that will do inter-island vehicle tranport is "Young Brothers" and I was told I have to have the bike palletized when it arrives on the dock (have your own pallet) or you can rent a container but there is a waiting list and $$$ so I was told by them. Matson and Pasha only do hawaii-mainland and back. Pasha charges $525 for a San diego to hawaii for a KLR goes by weight.

I am already entertaining the idea of purchishing on the big island and leaving it there, but have no place to leave the bike secured.
