Transporting/Shipping Bike to Missouri

By idahoscout - Posted on 15 March 2011

All - I bought a DRZ 400 for my son who will be in SW Missouri for the summer.  I need to get the bike there, but his vehicle cannot haul a trailer. I am loathe to drive two cars and I do not have the time to ride a 400 there.  Any ideas on cheap shipping or ways to get the bike to Springfield, MO?

Has anyone used a hitch tow where the bike's front wheel is attached and the rear rolls along?  If so, any comments on stability, tire wear and tear, safety etc.
