No matter if you're moving across the country to permanently reside or going to live elsewhere for a little while, consider having your motorcycle shipped over with you. The City of Yakima has many transport companies that can help you get your motorcycle safely delivered.
Delivering a motorcycle outside of Yakima instead of riding it there will help reduce any normal wear and tear during the bike since it will be shipped safely. It will also allow you to bring other belongings with you if you get to the new location by an automobile or plane, since a motorcycle can't hold any possessions.
