Any International transport company should arrange this from Ceva Logistics through to Pickfords? However, a local import/export agent would be the best place to start? I use one in Oz and they collect and deliver to me pallets of stuff from as far apart as Thailand and the UK. I just pick up the phone and they sort everything. I am not sure what the regulations are regarding vehicles into Germany but make sure you have any necessary paperwork in order. I brought a car and tried to bring another both over to Australia and the story around what happened to me has served many people well over the years? Don’t assume it’s always straight forward, although I can’t envisage any issues transporting within Europe.

The paperwork and registering the bike are easy. I have a LHD headlight already(that was like trying to find hen's teeth). The issue is finding a company who think they will be able to get across the borders, due to the nature of the cargo some neanderthals at the border controls might not consider it essential.

all I can tell you Sing is that a week ago I asked our agents to pick a pallet up from Warrington and deliver it to Victoria and a week later it turned up? Thatís with all the virus thing going on? Go and talk to an import agent, it goes on all day every day. Wonít be cheap though.

I've had a quote of 425 quid door to door which isn't bad at all.

Started riding to work now the weather has improved. I'm lucky that it takes me on a bit of a decent route through countryside and forest, so very pleasant.

Nice one mate. Quite like the idea of one of those, or the BMW R1200 as a second bike. The BMW is expensive though. So I wouldn't mind hearing your feedback on the Triumph.

Only up to 750 miles atm, but it appears to give me everything I want from a bike. It can scratch, tour and commute. Fair bit of heat from the engine, but then anything I've had with a triple, quad or V-twin has pumped out hotness. The soft seat could be better - but is still able to cope with the 200 miles between fill ups. Changing modes on the fly is a breeze, and really noticeable - you can feel the entire bike get taught as you engage sports mode, and becoming a comfy armchair when you slacken it all off.

All told, I'm delighted with it.

Very nice, the only thing that gets me with the modern bikes is the stupid looking silencers. Go old school with a set of straight throughs. Nothing like blasting through the underground carpark at Weston Favel Centre giving the grannies a heart attack. I used to go to away games on my Suzuki GS750 and later on my CBX1000.

I just recently traded the S1000r for an unreg S1000xr triple black. Wollaston 'found' me one six months after supplies dryed up. I'm getting off tired, but absolutely loving it so far Grin
44teeth on youtube is a favourite of mine Melbourne (and stop prevaricating, that does no one any good. Instinct is all you need).

There are not many that are inferior to it, bar Harley Davidsons(don't forget to collect your free plough to go with your tractor). You need a smoker, you just haven't come to terms with your needs for speed.  Grin

I see a few of the later versions of that around here. The old farmers use them to pop to the pub and back.

I had a 1974 Honda 500/4, quite a rare bike, I bought it off a mate, just after he and the bike had appeared as extras in a film.
