Bike Registration in Japan
Can anyone tell me if it possible to ship a bike from Wakkanai to Sakhalin which is Japanese registered that will be in my girlfriends name (Japanese) as the owner and myself as the authorised user.
The plan is for me and a mate to buy a couple of Transalp 400's at the end of June in Japan. Travel the country and then ship to Russia and ride through to Europe. I have been told that as someone on a tourist visa I cant register the bike in my name as an owner. Unfortunately my girlfriend isnt coming to Russia and cant be there when we ship ourselves and the bikes.
I am making the assumption that if I can get through Japanese customs that I wont have a problem on the Russian side.
