Harley-Davidson Launches New Motorcycle Shipping Service

Jan 06, 2006

From a press release issued by Harley-Davidson, Inc.:

Harley-Davidson Shipping Expands Riding Opportunities for Motorcycle Owners

MILWAUKEE (January 6, 2005) – Harley-Davidson Motor Company announces a new motorcycle shipping service designed specifically with riders in mind. Harley-Davidson Shipping expands riding opportunities for motorcyclists who want to ride in locations throughout North America, but face the challenges of insufficient vacation time or inclement weather constraints.

“Harley-Davidson Shipping is a way for us to reach out to our customers with another high-quality service that enhances their riding experiences,” said Lara Lee, Vice President Enthusiast Services. “Through Harley-Davidson Shipping, we provide customers more opportunities to experience riding in new locations, while simplifying the transactions and offering flexible options.”

Owners of all brands can take advantage of the flexibility to ship motorcycles to various locations at a competitive price and with unparalleled customer service. Harley-Davidson Shipping offers convenient locations for shipping, including door-to-door pick-up and delivery from a business or personal residence. The new service goes beyond other shipping services by offering honored real-time quotes and multi-bike group discounts for all customers.

Harley-Davidson Shipping is open for any enthusiast to use, while offering additional discounts on shipments to all full Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.) and Buell Riders Adventure Group (BRAG) members. The service is available throughout the United States and Canada, including Hawaii and Alaska, beginning January 2006.

For more information about Harley-Davidson Shipping rates, locations, transit schedules and other services available contact 1-888-575-BIKE. Shipping quotes and vehicle tracking can be done online at www.harley-davidson.com/shipping.

Harley-Davidson Motor Company, the only major U.S.-based motorcycle manufacturer, produces heavyweight motorcycles and a complete line of motorcycle parts, accessories and general merchandise. For more information, visit Harley-Davidson's Web site at www.harley-davidson.com.

from what I understand it woudl be shipped to a harley dealer near there.

I was actually thinking about having mine shipped to san fran and riding the coast out there for a week. its a lot cheaper than renting one. you ship it, the dealer uncrates it, cleans it up and has it ready and waiting for you when you fly in.

Screw that, you sport tourer people do like 7000 miles in one day. the way my tailbone hurts after riding for an hour I woudl never make it out there, it would take me 2 weeks to get there. Although i did order a corbin seat so I'm hoping that will help a bit.

From here to Phoenix and a 7 day delivery was $830.00. Can I be a HOG member even if I don't own a Hog? I've been called a hog before, does that count?

Have to have a serial number to be a HOG member. (I am one... perhaps they'll let me have the bike shipped for you)

one way, my thought was to have it shipped to Cali, then ride it back from there.

Tony if it 400 each way for shipping, how much is it to rent a bike for a hogger? Because it's 140 for a non hogger and shipping for a non hogger is 700, that works out renting for 5 days. Shipping back is another 700, so there and back is like a 10 day rental.

Get the Corbin saddle.....you can easily do 400 miles in a day....I did 550 with a stock ElectraGlide. 10 day ride and we see the country.

from Hog's member website:

Quote:
Rates: Rental rates are US $100 per day, US $600 per week (seven days), plus any applicable sales tax, for rentals in the U.S. and Canada. Rates for all other locations are US $125 per day, US $750 per week (seven days). There is a two-day minimum. The maximum rental period is three weeks. A 50% deposit is required to hold your reservation. The remaining 50% must be received at least three weeks before the vehicle is to be picked up.


The other nice thing about Hog is they have thier own travel agents that hook you up with nice routes, and bike friendly lodging etc. its a great club to be in. of course there is a substantial buy in since you have to own a harley.

Corbin saddle is on its way Rick. should be here by the end of the month.

At Chicago Harley one of the trucking Guys had an ad up on the bulletin board for shipping to daytona and back and I think it was like 500.(this was season before last I think)
I called out of curiosity and he said he makes the route all the time anyway so he just pallets up the bikes, and the riders fly in and out of the rally.

I've toured on the wing a LOT over the years.. but I'm done with those long middle states 2x in one trip., I almost did what you are talking about tony on the 50'th anniversay fly it out and ride it back.

i think the fly it out and ride it back is an awesome idea. the worst part of any driving trip for me was the ride back after getting somewhere. this way the ride back is the trip. theres no seeing everything twice and just wanting to be home already.

I always like riding out somewhere and taking a different route back that way it all seems like one long trip. One LONG trip.

I agree with what you are saying,

I used to try to make a circle out of a road trip so as to not go and come back the same way... I think this is something that everyone should do at some time or another.... you get that adventurous kind of lewis and clark kind of feeling especially being on a bike. For a lot of years,we used to leave on the wing for 2-3 weeks at a time. While there were a lot of adventures I wouldn't want to replace, After all the backaches, sore rear ends,and weather I guess its out of my system.

Maybe I'm just getting old, but the showing up and riding at the fun parts is what I'm really enjoying at the moment. or at least dumping part of the boring part would work.

Rick I'm sure you feel differently, I know no one could tell me there was another way when I got my touring bike for a long time.
