    You should be able to ship your bike with Autoliners from the eastcoast, think the rate's still around $600,00 US, its ro/ro and sail out of Baltimore and Pensacola, if somebody's charging you $2000,00 they'r pulling your leg.

    I don't have a lot of time upcoming weeks because of a combination of work and preparation for my Scandinavia trip later in July.

    A wrong turn that turned out to be brillant...turning around on this single track was "interesting"! :D
    [​IMG]

    And a couple of random photos in the Ardennes. Just go for look up any forest roads... lots fun exploring!
    [​IMG]

    After riding this track i arrived in Bouillon, in the southern Ardenne, very popular wih bikers ..my bike was caked in 2 inches of mud..unlike all the polished on sunday bikes that were there... there were a few chuckles and pointing and murmuring...:evil :evil Lots of fun!

    As a local boy couldn't resist to sign in and maybe play a more active role in "promotoring" this great city. The sex/drugs image is somewhat overrated, the town is pretty harmless but never boring (except maybe for the weather!)
    Come and see for yourself...if you do, drop me a line....

    PS: haven't quite figured out how to upload pics but when I succeed I will share some.....

    Well, a bit late maybe ...
    But HI THERE anyway!!!

    I live in the north west, right above the city Alkmaar.
    If you're planning of coming this way, think again :lol3 .
    Serious, it's great here ... but there's beter places for driving a GS.
    Although I do tend to amuse myself here:
