My 2 options are freight from UB to Germany like you did or put it in a truck/train from Yakutsk/Magadan to Moscow (I fly there) and then ride home from Moscow.

Which option I choose depends a lot on timings. There's also a 3rd option that is to ride the bike from Magadan back to Tajikistan to ride the Pamir Highway that I missed in 2012 and then freight home from Kyrgyzstan, but this is the least likely option at the moment.
somehow some buttons are missing in my browser
anyhow i know Uwe (black 990 in UB) used a train from vlady to yekaterinaburg but the bike in post train took 14 days longer
