No ferry from Singapore to anywhere and trying to take your bike there will teach you the meaning of bureaucracy. And expense.
You can ship to Sumatra from Penang or near Malaca - check out the shipping pages. You can also get yourself a 2 month visa for Indonesia in Malaysia.
Don't miss Indonesia - it was one of our favorite countries!

Make sure to drop me a line when you get down the South Island, mate. It would be grand to meet up with you. I'm near Christchurch.

I've been getting conflicting reports as the availability of a vehicle ferry from Singapore to Bataam. Does anyone have current information?
Thanks
Glen

Bossit,

Can you post your shipping experience on the "shipments by travellers" section on the site, it would be helpful to many other folks, including me!

Go to Melacca in Malaysia or Kuala Lumper as from both places it is easy to get your bikes on a boat to Indonesia.
