Hi Antonis,

Thanks for the reply, I’m afraid they won’t take just the bike, however I am in contact with them… can you recommend any shipping agents in or around the limasol area… I would have thought with the military bases there would be a few specialist shipping agents to the UK….

I’m on the island in May… I plan on visiting the island with my wife, so any ideas of routes / must see !! would be gratefully received… would be nice to meet up ….

Kindest regards
Matthew

Try this company: UTi Corporate Home Page
We have a customer in Cyprus and he uses them for shipping to the island so they must be able to bring stuff out too. I don't know if they will handle your bike but it may be worth a call or and email.
Good luck
Cheers
Gecko

Hello Matthew,
Me and my wife are always pleased to meet travellers...please contact me as soon as you get in the island. My email is vassiliou_antonis@hotmail.com and my mobile is 99615524.
I will try to get prices from shipping companies. May is the best time to travel around the island. I have a lot of routes to suggest....but I will tell you over cold and our barbeque
