    Moving from the US to Germany in a little less than a month. What's a good shipping service to use to get my bike over there?

    Join the Army. You get to ship 1 vehicle as part of your allowance.

    While that's true, a motorcycle doesn't count as that vehicle. The last two times I PCS'ed to and from Germany, I shipped a car (or truck) and then they packed up the motorcycle separately, with the furniture from the house.

    The movers built a freakin crate right around the bike... a Ninja 900.

    I would, but he ships from Seattle and I'm in the Bay area. I got a good quote from some shippers that work out of the Port of Oakland...think I'll go with them probably.
