On the way home

I'm sure Angele, Baby Bob and all your friends up home are ready for your epic stories! And to finally get back in your own comfortable bed with toilet paper and a lid on your john! We won't make it for your return party but looking forward to meeting up with you and Angele in future travels.

Fly safe!

Thanks again for sharing your adventure with us

The shipment back to Miami was right around $1500usd.

I can highly recommend DakarMotos. Javier and Sandra arranged everything for me. You need to get in touch with them a couple weeks in advance. You can find them by Googling DakarMotos

Hey Jim

It's no midnight moto but it's still a good ride. hahaha

I went and paid for the bike shipping today so the SA leg is done. Next ride will be in Miami on March 1

When Radioman shipped his bike from BA to New Zealand recently he had the thing cleaned up like it was new. Apparently NZ Customs is a bugger about not bringing furrin dirt into the country. Would not surprise me if US Customs was the same. Or maybe it's the Dept of Agriculture guys who get their panties in a wad about things like that.

it comes down to the agent (in the US) most of the time what he 'thinks' is clean, but for NZ and OZ they literally run a white glove over the bike...they are concerned about dirt with mold spores or insect eggs in it, is there reason

i had an Australian friend who was charged $3200 cleaning fee, bringing his Australian registerred bike back home to OZ
