Moving a bike from England to Turkey
 
Hi

I'm planning on riding around the Middle East starting in late April / Early May and was considering purchasing a bike from the UK rather than shipping mine from Australia. If I did go with this option, would anyone be interested in riding it from England to Turkey so it is there ready for me in April / May?

Hi :cool4:

Just as a matter of interest ,what sort of bike are you looking at getting ? I might be interested but particularly tall bikes are out for me.

Cheers

Neil

Hi

I'm not into very tall bikes as well, but it will be a dual sport - maybe a BMW 650 gs - there's one that has been factory lowered, or a Honda Dominator. Still looking at present!
Cheers

Anybody who does ride it into Turkey will have the bike entered into their passport and wont be able to leave Turkey without the bike. Better to handover in Greece, Bulgaria or some other European country close to the border.

If you are passing pop in

Great! I'll keep you posted re how things are going. I need to find a bike that will do the things I need it to do - sight unseen - that's always a little hard!!

Re the Trip report - the trip has not started yet, but I'll be blogging when it does :thumbup1:
