in February this year I flew my bike to Cape Town as temporary import. This was absolutely no problem on a carnet basis. In CT I had to get an appointment with the customs officer to have the chassis & engine no. checked against the carnet data. I had to wait two days for an appointment. There was no need to arrange a 3rd party insurance, because my own insurance covered Southern African states as well.
Only when we pause to wonder
do we go beyond the limits of our little lives.
