Hi Mike
I would still like to store the bike here, but I'm having a bit of trouble finding some where safe to leave it, i tried one guy but he could only keep it on his path on the main road.
Shipping back was just a consideration at the moment, i want to ship to Japan in the new year around the end of April so i don't really want to take it home but i may have to, I'm now running out of time.
cheers Pete (skip)

Just a thought but BMW here in Scotland stored my bike for nearly a year for £5/week, maybe one of the bigger dealers might have storage facilities. I'm sure someone must be able to help you.

Hello Skip,

you are welcome to leave your bike at my house in KL. I have a covered area at the side of my house so it will be out of the rain. It will get a little dusty but will be safe. Drop me a mail to: deanmlewis at hotmail dot com
I'm in singapore now but will be back in KL at the weekend.

rgds,
Dean

Hi Dean
Thanks for the offer of storage but i have decided to ship my bike back to the UK for the winter, i will be off to Japan and then Russia in the spring, and as the cost of shipping back to the UK is only $400 so I'm going to do that.
Thanks again Skip
