Shipping my Harley Davidson to US - Europe

Got following rates for my March 24th sailing from Inchon, Korea to Long Beach, CA. USA basis L2 x W 0.9 x H 1.5 meters 2.7 CBM 320KG, on Wallenius Wilhelmson Ro-Ro line. A global service provider vis a vis Europe - Middle East-Asia - Japan - USA - Europe and South America.
Nice thing about this carrier is that they have been around a long time. A respected Scandinavian line. No frigging packing of bikes. Quick turn around at the port. No extra charges of hauling containers and port handling charges. Very cheap. 1/2 the price of 20ft box some cases 1/3 .
From US to Asia is much cheaper since they come almost empty, outside of US military and John Deere exports to load up GM, Kia, Hondas and Toyotas.
