Thanks

Do you have a shipper? Many times they can assist, or point you to someone who can. There are several Motorcycle shippers in US, some offer international shipping, some domestic. Most International shippers also offer shipping from origin to port. I do not have any more specific info.
Finding someone to do it privately can be difficult, and risky.

If it can be safely crated in Connecticut, any regular truck freight company can ship. Remember to drain gas.....at least to no more than 1/4 tank.

I am not that familiar with the area but is it possible to drive and do the pick up. :?: :?: It would fit in a van I am thinking

...a rental trailer or pick-up will do the trick. Good Luck.

See if the seller will crate it and put it on a truck/semi 6000 miles...... wow I just looked at your location and I guess shipping could be an issue

hi, no help from the seller!! the same thing when i bought my gl 1100, but once the bike gets to the shipping company at the port its fairly easy going. on the cl 70 no need to crate as theshipper ties it down on a pallet. thanks for the interest ;)
