Rent a truck and then rent a trailer from U-Haul and get it yourself. It would be a two day trip.

5 meals @ $8 each = 40.00
One-way Flight HOU to FLL = 99.00

If you can wait until '07, I'll do it for $325 plus a ride to the airport!

EDIT: I would need the seller to get me from the airport and I'd need the VIN to insure the bike before I leave.

Seller not willing to pick u up from the air port.

I guess i'll just have to go myself..

Thanks Rebecca, your awesome for even offering that..

Where at in Florida? I'll be in Florida next month for a stunt competition in Lakeland, Fl. That's in between Tampa and Orlando. I could bring it back for the right price.

Its in Deerfield FL 33441. Its pretty much South Florida near Miami.

So even after getting into FL its a good 3-4 hour of a drive.

Anyways.. i'm still not sure what to do..
