    Hello all,
    Looking for some help to try and figure out how to get two bikes from the west coast of North American to Seol then to Vladivostok. Not opposed to sniping to Japan and taking from ferry to Vladivostok as well. The ultimate goal is to do a RTW trip heading westbound in 2019.

    My "search fu" must be shit. I can't seem to locate easy step by step info on this. The best I have found is that air freight of bikes from the U.S. Is a no go. Must head up to Vancouver and jump on Air Canada. From what I have been able to gather, the leg from Europe back to North America is pretty easy.

    Would really appreciate some recent experience from anyone who has done this. Thank you in advance.

    I know Asta and Linas (http://www.2wheeledadventures.com/) did it back in August, met them in Alaska but we we got to Vancouver 1st due to a wedding and left before they came but I know they shipped out of Vancouver. Check their site or Instagram (2wheeledasta and 2wheeledlinas) and you can probably find the info. Get to them now as I know they have some down time while the bikes are going to Africa. Met a Swiss guy in AK who also did it (opposite direction) so the info must be out there or try Horizons Unlimited.
