Hello - I am planning and budgeting and researching at the moment, and was hoping that I could get some assistance. Next year I'm going to buy a bike to tour the Western United States on for 3-4 weeks. When I'm done with it, I'm going to ship it to Europe and leave it there for touring purposes. I'd like to be able to tour through Europe for 3-4 weeks at a time, so I think this is probably the most cost efficient way (I've read on this forum it's a pain in the ass to buy a bike in another country, and renting would cost a fortune for that length of time). I've heard there are services that will store and maintain bikes for foreigners in various European countries. I already know of one place in Germany, and in that scenario I'd have to ride the bike to some company in Florida, pay them a grand to ship it and then a maintenance fee every year. I'm wondering if anyone has any other places that you could recommend I check out? Germany is great (I already toured there this year), but I'm just wondering what my options are. I am will to ride the bike just about anything in the 48 contingent states for shipping purposes, and upon handing the bike over I'd like to not have to worry about anything but riding the bike every time I go to Europe. Thanks!!
