    Namaste!

    Can anyone give me advice on getting a battery for an 1150 GS Adventure to Kathmandu, Nepal ? We're thinking that Bangkok might be our best option. 300% markup plus shipping but at this point we just want to get on the road....

    Maybe from California will be the same without markup but easier to deal with?

    Thanks for any input you have to offer!

    The main BMW dealer in Thailand, Barcelona, has a very poor service record, I would avoid them if possible. Another dealer, German Auto, is more reputable but I would just try and get the battery from Germany if possible.

    I sorted it though the UK using fedex. Thanks for all of the input. It was a mission getting it out of customs. [​IMG]
