Comments: 

Shipped two XT600s in separate crates. Removed wheels, forks and bars. Final crated weight 210kg each (bit high I thought) Dims 170 x 110 x 60 cms. Crates were ruined but didn't care. Customs at Almaty took an entire day and bartered the fixer (100% necessary) down to 300usd for both bikes. Customs fees for temporary import were about 45usd.
