I've shipped a bike from Colorado to NY. I used JC Motors ( They picked the bike up at the seller's door, strapped it to a special pallet and delivered it to my door. No Forward Air terminal hassels. The bike arrived without a scratch within 10 days of pickup.

If it's too much of a hassle to rent a car for one leg of the trip and ride the bike for the other, I highly recommnend a shipper like JC (there are a number of others like the above mentioned 1AA. Figure you'll spend between 400-500 bones to do it, though.

By the way, my brother shipped a bike via Forward Air. He didn't save much money, if any at all, over a door-to-door shipper. It also took the same amount of time. Plus he had a bit of a hassel at the Air Terminal when he found that the battery on the bike was dead and they wouldn't let him put any gas in it.

If you don't mind spending the money, a motorcycle-specialized, door-todoor service is the way to go.
