How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping

- Fold in the mirrors if they are undetachable, remove protruding parts like handlebars.
- Ensure the tires have enough pressure in them before moving.
- Check all the storage compartments and remove all items.
- If the bike has special tweaking, you should let the driver know before he loads in the truck.
