    On the small end of the spectrum. BMW G 310 GS. Bought the bike from an inmate in San Jose. They are storing it for me while I line up transport. Not sure my seller is that patient but thanks for the offer.

    I posted a similar request on uship, but I figured I might as well try here too. I’m looking to ship a CRF450L from West Virginia (26847) to the western burbs of Chicago (60137) or close to. I need it delivered before August 2. If anybody here is interested, let me know.

    I'm moving from Colorado to Michigan and making a trip from Michigan to Colorado with an empty enclosed trailer leaving the 23rd of Nov. Will be to the front range Monday at the latest. Will haul up to 2 motorcycles/dirtbikes. Asking for some help with gas money is all. I've hauled a vstrom from Co to Fl for an inmate before and it was a good experience so figured I would try it again.

    I have a car that needs to be picked up outside of Stockton, CA, and hauled back to the SW Suburbs of Chicago. Car runs and drives, but isn't road ready.

    So either I need someone who is heading back this way with an empty trailer, or I may have an empty open trailer heading out and back if I end up having to do it myself. Will be pulling with either a truck or a van, depending on what strikes my fancy.

    It looks like I'm going to have an empty trailer returning from Baton Rouge, LA to Fond du Lac, WI Feb 1st. This will likely be a U-Haul 6x10 enclosed (haven't rented it yet). Moving my son down there and the cost for one-way trailer rental is obscene.

    Let me know if you have something needed to move north. Can use the help with gas.

    I will take your bike from Denver to Illinois Indiana Michigan.
    I will be taking some furniture to my son in Denver the first weekend in November, 2021. The truck will be empty on my way back. I will basically charge for hotel, food and gas. I have straps. Paul
