I just bought a brand new sport bike and I have to drive about 500 miles there (and 500 miles back!) to go pick it up. I need some advice on how to do this the best and most cost effective manner.
First of all, I've done quite a bit of research online, so please don't say to do that. Second, I found that my best plan is just to go with a U-Haul motorcycle trailer (open/uncovered).... which is what I have planned but I really wish I could use an enclosed trailer instead. The reason I am not going enclosed is because I hear they aren't designed for such and there are no anchors on the ground to secure the bike etc....
I just want to get anybody's opinion who may have been in this scenario. Also, I have never really towed anything of significance before, let alone 500 miles (the trip there would be with an empty trailer of course), but I'm not terribly concerned with small cargo like this. I just don't wanna cruze 500 miles down the Rockies and get rock chips in my new skins left and right.
Lastly, I'm running a DC shortbox with a 6" lift.
Any and all help welcome!
