FYI.............I picked up a bike here in Dayton for Slim in Michigan (Victor, 1980 YZ250)..........evidently he has a few bikes in his stable

I got to meet his transporter............he lives in Carrollton, Texas..........I used to be the phone man for the city of Carrollton  Shocked

Good Old Boy.........he was right on time on stayed in touch..........he showed up with his diesel Ram Truck and a long Trailer..........and he had 9 neat bikes on it  Cool .............been doing this for 30 years and knows what he is doing..........Slim has used him a bunch

He does all over the south and to the north, his card says nation wide...........he said he starts in the morning and runs till 2AM often

He also used to own a Kawasaki dealership which he sold in 1973, and has an H2 hillclimber

At any Rate, I told him I would post his Info, so anybody needing to move a bike, give him a call

Thanks for posting Phil!

Yep,  I've used Erv for 15-20 years.  Not sure how long ago I found him.  Pre-internet days is all I remember.  (back when we used phone and want ads)

I've never had an issue, always great service and friendly as hell.

Only one possible draw back.  He uses an open trailer, so if you have a premo bike and want it kept inside during transport, then Erv may not be your guy.

He does however handle lots of higher end bikes and as far as I know has not had any issues.

I would always  recommend him.

He'll even haul "non-bike related stuff, such as snowblower heads.  (assuming he 'Erv' knows you)

Erv done them for me also. No problems. My bikes are usually  pretty rough, so open works. He only does it for 6 or 8 months a year.
