i'm sure this has been addressed but a friend is emptying his storage building and gave me a X1 in very good shape but it is in Arkansas and I am in West Virginia.My buddy picked it up but I need to get it shipped to West Virginia.I could use some suggestions on how to get it here.Thanks.

Does it run? Arkansas is not all that far from WV. Fly and ride?

Fresh plugs, fresh gas, Gumout & air for the tires. Fresh dyna filter and oil. Hunt out the mice nests. ( the quarter car wash does a good job on nests )

A saddle bag of tools, a fine fall day, the certainty that you will be rained upon, the promise of clean sheets and a willingness to stop and rest, check for leaks, and smell the flowers in the hills.

Go for it.

( take breaks for fluids to avoid dehydration, Every gas stop a stretch and a drink. Stop for a motel before the deer fill the roads at twilight, and try local diners & dives for a chance at awesome. )

You and me both. Proximity would have determined the winner.

A quote from somewhere:

"The only thing more costly than a cheap motorcycle is a free motorcycle"

But yeah, I would be all over that!
