Stay safe.
We're trying to get caught up, but we are, as expected, way behind on the RR.

We were quoted US$1,500 several months before leaving for the trip. When we arrived in New York, we were told that the price was a stand-by quote. This, along with the fact that my ownership and shipping papers got stuck in US customs, was the reason we have been waiting for two weeks in Iceland for the bike. Shipments only go out once a week on Saturdays, and we missed last weeks' shipment, which, we were told, was full anyway.

When we got here, we camped out in the park across from the public library (which we later found out was also the mayor's office) in the town of Keflavík, a few kilometers form the airport. A local guy saw us and offered us his "hut by the sea" to stay in while we waited for the bike.

We pick the bike up tomorrow. The cost for the shipment was US$1,500 plus local NY tax (which is a decent price, in my opinion). We're also expecting to pay some warehouse and customs fees when we pick the bike up.

Cool, thx for the information. I might ship my bike to the US some day.

Have a good trip and keep the RR and pics coming!

The whole area is at one time a major mining area. There are roads all throughout the area, that are barely accessible by 4 wheeler. But once back into a lot of the area there are some pretty amazing sights with a lot of the old structures still standing.

Screen

The screen was built by Daryl at Cyclops motorsports. I beleive that is his screen name here as well. Not sure if he is continuing to make them as it was very labor intensive.
