It worked out to about $1000 each way including port costs, insurance etc. Shipping insurance is included with the shipping but you don't have to pay for it if you don't want to (it's $200 each way). I used tradelanes.com.au.

Thats a good way of doing it - the last time I looked it seemed that hiring a bike for a short term was expensive. In 1982 we bought a secondhand bike and toured around Europe and the UK for a couple of months and then sold the bike at the end through the same dealer we purchased it from.. Lost a bit on the deal which we had factured in as a cost. The hassle was the time to sell the bike at the end. This way its your own wheels which you know well.

Great report by the way.

Cheers

Great end to the report! Have been following for a few months now and was chuffed when the last update finally turned up.

Well done, sounds like a properly good blast :)
