May 11, 2006Looks like my wife and I will be moving back to Maryland. I'm originally from there, shes from here. The economy is slowly dying here and I need to go to where there is work. We've had an offer to live with a family member for awhile to get going again. Wont be an overnight move but will look you all up when I get settled!

July 10, 2006Official moving day is the 31st. Packing our chit on the weekend and rolling early on the 31st. Hope to be behind morning traffic in the 'Burgh and beat the afternoon in Baltimore. See ya there! Gonna be interesting riding the bike up into the U-Haul truck. Then gotta pack around it. Now here's a quandry... Should I level it up on my jack and strap it down. Then strap it to the sidewalls pulling it against the front wal.l
July 17, 2006My dad moved my Sportster from Louisiana to Pennsylvania in a U-Haul for me when I moved a couple years ago. He got it in the trailer and settled it on the kick stand then ran straps from the front forks to hooks in the U-Haul walls on each side. Then ran a strap through the back wheel (aluminum, not spoked) and did the same for tie-off on each side. Then he covered it with a few really soft blankets and packed around it. It made the 1500 mile trip just fine.
Thankfully, when I moved to Maryland, I could just ride down and not have to deal with that again. Good luck.
