    Never really heard anything bad about them.
    They seem to be always hiring, years ago that would have been a red flag.
    In this day and age it's the normal with what's out there for drivers to choose from.
    Post up what you find out they have had my interest for a while.

    They hauled my HD from Texas to Las Vegas. Did a great job. Two days early and not a scratch on it.

    Is this the place that encourages/allows you to bring your own bike with you?

    Yes. They allow you to bring your own bike.

    Friends of mine started a few weeks ago. Waiting to hear from them.

    They're still with the company. Too early to tell if they like it.
     
    Upinsmoke Thanks this.

    Just put in an application and spoke with them last week. They seemed quite interested in me. Kind of hoping they get back with me today or tomorrow or it's on to another company that's already approved me. The Safety director I spoke with seemed very cool and laid back.

    What I've learned so far ....

    I applied for Company Driver (They also hire OO's)
    They encourage you bring your bike, rider (spouse/family/friend) and a pet if you have one from day one.
    You must be a licensed motorcycle enthusiast to work there.
    They talked to me about 2 possible positions. First - OTR is at 0.57cpm / $30 per bike ($15 on $15 off) $25 per "Add on" stop. Add on means any stop that's added after you leave the terminal. Claims an average of 10,000 miles per month. $175 per day layover pay and that's the first 24 hours. $200 per day event pay if directed to work an event.

    Second Position - Runs just the Eastern Seaboard (including NY City at times) and is salary at 95k per year. Pretty much the same gig as OTR for everything else.

    Their website lays out all the details for both Company and OO's. Claims the average pay for company drivers in 2019 was 70k to 90k.
