Overstayed in Turkey
I stayed in Turkey a bit longer than I should have with my bike - the Customs agent only gave me 4 days when I flew back and picked my bike up from the airport customs garage.

Now Im a bit stuck and keep hearing wild stories about how you have to pay twice the value of your vehicle in penalties.

I have to leave Turkey this weekend before my visa runs out, and I can't seem to do it without the bike.

Im trying to decide to make a run for the border and hope or go to the customs garage that gave me the 4 days in the first place and see if I can work something out with them.

Any tips/advice? Ive heard a little grease makes it a bit easier - but being a sheltered American Im a bit timid about actually pulling it off.
