The cheapest I found it was $950 ROUND TRIP.
The next was AmTrack @$1000.
The highest I found was $1600 round trip.

I just got off the phone with Forward Air. At 300#, shipment will be $83.00 each way. Insurance is .65/$100.
Dude, I owe you some beers.

Man, that's an incredible price. Will they deliver anywhere, or is it only from major city to major city? Business addresses only? Do you need to crate the bike yourself? Give me some details, please (and the phone number while you're at it.)

You need to crate the bike yourself. It must be COMPLETELY boxed up...yes, just like a cube, with plywood sides. It must be on a pallet or something so a fork truck can grab it. Shipping time is 4 days each way from Bos to Denver.
There is a receiving station in Denver. For me, it is either Albany, NY or Boston. I hate Boston but it is closer.
Customer Support is 800-726-6654.
Pick up and delivery must be done AT THEIR STATIONS.
Weight is the TOTAL weight of bike and pallet.
Insurance will total $65 based upon $5000 value. I would put weight at an easy 400# for pallet + bike. Forward Air quoted me $111.70 for 400# from Boston to Denver.

That's awesome news!
By the way, I'm in Reno until Thursday so I can't get my TTalk e-mail until then.
