Need a Motorcycle delivered from Jackson, MS to Charlotte, NC-anyone coming this way?

Guys, I need a bike delivered from the vicinity of Jackson, MS to the area of Charlotte, NC.

Anyone coming up this way that could haul it?

Thanks

George

Just out of curiosity and clarification, are you talking about hitching a free ride with someone coming this way or offering to pay for someone to haul it over? My guess is that gas for that trip would be in the $225 range and an overnight hotel for another $100. Another few bucks to cover fast food along the way. Cost for the driver would be about $400. Again, just wanting to understand what your asking.

By the way, I second that you can have confidence in Steelpony. I've bought from him before and he keep really good care of his things.

I think he is wanting someone who has space in a pickup or on a trailer that happens to be headed towards Charlotte to haul the bike for him... But my reading comprehension isn't what it could be...

(And he bought the bike from dan650, another standup guy... Steelpony is just helping get it moved.)

Kingsize, you sure you didn't hit your head on that high side?!?!?

BW, no I am sure I DID land head first but in this case, that's not the problem, I've just been limited in time lately and only getting snap shots of what is going on. My bad, carry on.

Nah, you got it right

Anyway, what he said...

I have lots of options and they all involve 400 bucks including an inmate bringing it for $400.
Nothing wrong with that and much preferred over some kind of uShip option.

Well, Dan had an inmate who's a truck driver that said he could get a load up to Charlotte
and help him out (well, he was helping ME out but Dan made the posting) for free.
Anyway, we've been working on making that happen so for the last week or so, I've been thinking
free or at least much less but now, it seems like it might not happen or be delayed for several weeks
'cause he had to take some loads to the west coast instead.

So, the best answer is, as little as possible obviously. I can pay but I'll also need riding gear which I don't have
so yes, I'm hoping to find someone coming this way (or close) anyway. They help me out and I make a contribution to the gas cost or something.

bike hauler

I have been talking to a guy about a Multistrada in the Charlotte area and scheming on it this week. I live in Jackson area and will most likely drive up with my trailer to pick it up. I will be happy to haul yours for some gas money but what will I be hauling?

Of course, just my luck. I just settled with a guy (last night) to bring it :(

Oh well, can't complain, he gave me a killer price considering he's going there to get it
and driving back.

THanks though and I have to update my posts now that I have it settled.

Of course, I KNEW that I'd find someone right after I settled with the other guy :)

George

Ooo, I'm as excited as a two peckered owl...

Yep, he called some time ago telling me he'll be here around 8-9.

Again, what Danny said. Thanks everyone for helping out :)

Danny, I'm looking at the pic of your truck and seems you lost a bike son...
