My Bro is going to be shipping off to Ramstein AFB here pretty soon, and I plan to exploit that He's got 3-5 years, I expect he'll stay the full five. I'd like to hear from some other folks who've exploited their siblings in the same manner He'll be living off base with a family kids and the whole works, so I gotta talk him into saving a little bit of floor space in the garage for me. Auctually, floor space for three of us brothers who all ride. We're currently shopping for new bikes in preperation for ADV rides together. Would it be cheaper to fly/ride or ship and store a bike there for ahwile using it on a couple of different trips? OR buy a bike there and leave it there and sell it when he ships back home? With rentals I'm worried about how they are outfitted and restrictions - I hate restrictions, loath them. At first I'd just be riding the developed EU contries, but if the sunshine finds my ass perhaps I'll get in an epic ride worthy of some RR thread. Thinking 'Stan countries or Ukraine, Mongolia? I got my fingers crossed it'll happen and going to work towards that goal. Five years is going to go fast! So I need to get my ducks hatched, let alone lined up :eek1 For shipping, there oughta be something pretty decent from Port of Seattle/Vancouver to Bremerhaven?
