Preparing for Take Off.
When you are ready to drop your two-wheel vehicle off or have it picked up, make sure that you have it cleaned off completely. There should be nothing on the bike that wasn’t factory intended. Only the items that originally came with the bike should be present. Leaving the fuel at no more than a quarter of a tank also helps keep the weight down which is crucial for a safe travels with transporters.
