    Hi folks, we are stuck with broke down bike in Tbilisi and need to ship it from Tbilisi to Istanbul (Triumph). Can you recommend any transporting companies?

    Thank you much in advance!

    Have you looked at using the train from Tbilisi to Istanbul?

    Thanks for the hint! The train seems to take a detour through Russia. Busses may be an option as one guy supposedly put his bike without wheels into the luggage compartment. Not sure though a Tiger would fit. I am checking in parallel on the HUBB forum, thanks a lot!

    From tbilisi to central istanbul there are regular buses. Contact them and remove front tyre pack in trunk get onto the bus and enjoy it. Metro must be the name of the company. Dont hesitate to ask for more needy my phone no?
