What is KL? Forgive me if I didn't know.. had to ask! And I would be interested in hearing your experience of how well it went getting into Malaysia because I heard that shipping to Singapore is difficult and cost prohibitive.

Perhaps someone else can chime in. Thanks!

I believe he means Kuala Lumpur.

To/from SE Asia, the reports point the same way: ship by air to/from Bankgok or KL, and by sea to/from Port Klang Malaysia (near KL – and if shipping into Malaysia, you officially need the carnet).

And yes, Singapore means some extra hassle, but shipping is always a bit of a headache, so I don´t really know, how much of a difference it makes in the end. It is certainly a very big seaport, and also a major airport, so you have plenty of options to ship there, too.

Shipping to Oz

Hey there, I would suggest riding to Singapore, its an easy 3hour ride to the first or second link and then take a look at some of the shipping companies there. It will cost you a few bucks more than from KL/Port Klang, BUT they will treat your bike far more professionally than the dockworkers at PK. You wont find bits missing to fit their Naza or Suzuki 2 stroke.

One option is to get hold of Perkin's Shipping, they run a service from Singapore, via Dili East Timor and on to Darwin, which is their home port. It would then give you a choice of riding through East Timor, bloody amazing countryside and then shipping down to Darwin and from there take the track to Adelaide, Perth or Brisbane.
