Goin to Tucson

I'm going to be in Tucson for several days in the spring of 08 for a conference, and want to take advantage of the opportunity to do some desert riding/exploring. I can't find anyone in Tucson that rents KLR's. What would be involved with shipping my bike to Tucson? I've never shipped one before, and don't know anything about the cost or inconvenience involved. Am I crazy for thinking about it? I don't know when I'll be out that way again - probably years, and don't want to miss the chance. I live in SE Tennessee.

Of course, I could drive and trailer it, but with gas so high, and my Land Rover getting 14 mpg, it might be cheaper to ship it. I have no idea.

Thanks
Ryan

Not to state the obvious, but why not ride yours there. The trip there and back would be every bit the adventure riding in the desert can be. Just saying.

The same thing dawned on me, and I think that may be the answer. It'll be 25 hours, but I think that's the plan.

Thanks for everyone's help
