Shipping from USA to Australia
Hi friends,
I am an Indian on an RTW. Need shipping advise from Los Angeles or San Francisco to Sydney, Australia. And also some light on present temporary import rules. Thanks

namaste and Good luck
I cannot answer your question about US-Australia shipping, but
as an Indian too, i am delighted to see a fellow desi take on an adventure of this size. I too am planning a long motorcycle trip, but will likely limit it to Alaska - Argentina, in two seperate trips.
I would really love to hear of your planning, experience and such. Please contact me at srileo@hotmail.com and we can talk.

Check the shipping section
Hi Bharadwaj,
I shipped my bike from LA to Melbourne back in July. All of the details are posted in the HU shipping section. It's easy enough to manage, the main thing being to ensure the bike's absolutely sparkling clean to satisfy the tough Aussie quarantine rules.

good luck with it,

Hi Grant, thanks for the info yes I did see your shipping details. Hope to see on road some time.

Having a receipt for "professional" cleaning eases the process with Quarantine.

Building a crate from untreated wood also attracts their attention.

Bharadwaj, Another Indian here :-)

Good to see you do an RTW.

Look me up when you are in Melbourne, would be more than glad to host you for a while. By the way do you have a travelogue / share the link please?

Srileo , I have sent you a mail, check your inbox, \
