Cost Paid at Start (US $): 

Very simple. After some back-and-forth regarding dates and costs, I dropped the bike (Suzuki DR650) off at their warehouse for crating. They agreed to include my helmet, jacket, pants and boots in the crate as well. The only modification to the bike was to loosen and rotate the mirrors. Side luggage & top case were left in place. Fuel was at 1/4 tank, and the battery was left connected. Final dimensions, per the air waybill, were: 210 x 85 x 145 cm, 334 kg.

The bike traveled by air from Lisbon to Newark, then by truck (ForwardAir) to BWI airport. The bike was crated very well, and my riding gear was boxed and bubble-wrapped very securely, and included in the crate. Total transit time for the bike, from drop-off in Lisbon to pickup at BWI, was 8 days. There was a port fee of US$40 payable at the ForwardAir office when picking up the bike.

Customs paperwork was very simple at BWI, but the customs office is on the other side of the airport complex. Also, the bike could not be uncrated at the ForwardAir office, so I had to get a truck to retrieve the bike and uncrate it elsewhere.
