    To hell with tie down straps! B&W biker bar is definitely the way to go the bike won't move at all and is 100% secure no worries of loosening up whatsoever

    i used JC motors. https://motorcycleshippers.jcmotors.com/shippingorders.aspx

    They ship by zones. For 7 and change it was door to door. Bike gets strapped to a huge dolly and hauled in an 18 wheeler. I think they charge a bit for insurance. They have a form that is filled out prior to shipping that shows any obvious nicks or scratches. Like a rental car.

    Absolutely the pit bull can go on but not with tailgate up but just like th3infamousl said getting it up on the truck by means of a ramp is pretty dangerous when the bikes front wheel makes it over the hump u literally have 2 seconds until ur frame is hitting I have an 04 pit bull and I use my bike lift to get to the correct angle If u have 4 decently strong men u can pick up and put it in. But good luck and be careful , keep in mind once u have the ramp up to the truck put a 2x4 under the ramp end that's on the ground and that will help but just don't try to ride right up unless u stop as soon as ur front wheel gets onto the truck have at least 1 other person there to help. Good luck
