It's a shot in the dark and you'll have to hope you can find somebody with sympathy but try calling TMO at Minot and see if they will tell you if someone is moving. Keep in mind though that if they ship your bike in their household goods it would probably be fine if the Gov is moving them. If they are doing a DITY move though they can claim the weight and their may be an ethical issue. The easy way around that is to ensure that the bike is not weighed along with the rest of their HHG and is put on the truck afterwards.
You might also want to have someone at Minot post your request on one of the base bulletin boards; you may be able to catch someone with a truck that is getting ready to make a Disney trip that would be willing to haul it to you for gas money. Be advised though with gas prices going up every day the gas one way may cost close to what you could ship the bike for.
The last option is to contact a Victory dealership near Minot and ask them to take care of the shipping. The may get a discount for shipping that they can pass on to you. This may actually be the best option because they can properly crate the bike. And (god forbid) if the bike was damaged prior to them shipping it they can evaluate the damage and tell you whether it's even worth shipping.
