Stuck in Siberia! Urgent request about Russian Custom procedures !
Stuck in Siberia! Urgent request about Russian Custom procedures !
Hello anybody from the HU Community !
We are 2 German bikers travelling from Germany to the US via Vladivostock.
Right now we since one week got stuck in Kemerobo / Sibiria with a broken rearshock on one of our bikes. Basic help is given to us by totally great local russian bikers.
Yet the Problem was neither to be solved by local repair nor by quite unsatisfying BMW-service.
Our problem pretty soon might be, that the new parts we ordered from our local German dealers and which are express shiped by DHL to a local businessadress here in Kemerobo could undergo Russian customs procedures ways from our influence in Moscow.
We are only likely to find out today what the story about the shippping then will be.
In case things DO get stuck with the russian customs in Moscow, does anyone of you know how to handle the custom procedures or maybe knows a preferably English, german, spanish or french speaking contactperson to call and maybe help us out, as we have heard and read continously, that this seems to be a really difficult thing including unknown amounts of russian forms to fill in !!!
Any information about the issue is urgently and highly welcome and appreciated !
Thank you all for your support in advance and maybe someone could copy this into a moer adaequate Forum if suitable, as we would not detect a proper emergency-part of the forum going through the sitesearchengine.
Problems only exist to be solved - we get back riding !
If you ship by reputable courier like DHL I guess they can arrange everything for you for a fee. Ask DHL if they can do customs paperwork for you and if they can't, they can probably point to someone who can.
P.S. You posted your message 4 times, please delete your other posts in different branches.
Hello everybody in the Hubb and sorry for late answering and double postings.
Things got solved mainly by WP Germany efforts sending us a new shock declared as low value (below 100 USD) second hand spring, thus sending through German UPS to a private office Adress in Moscow, from where it was forwarded to biker friends in Kemerobo !
No Customs, no Problems, 10 days including 3 days delay in Moscow.
THIS ist he place to declare , that the Russian Bikers are simply the most fantastic people on this earth !
They offered so much unbeleivevable help to us we simply neverever can describe by words.
Since we entered Siberia and the far east we are moving under a protection shield of the bikers here - not only supplying us a second time with spares on the way, when 10 Iron Tigers welcomed us in rainy Chabarowsk !
NO - when I got hit on the raod to Vladivostok and blown unconscious from my bike 3 days ago by a 20 cm treetrunk falling over the
street at 80 km / h during a storm,these guys collected first me from the road, unconscious for 5 Minutes and took me to Neurosurgery, where I had to stay for 3 days. Then they alltogehther started their bikers network, mainly Russian Samurais, Red Bikers and Iron Tigers plus incredible freeriders like Ruslan, PAulina, Friedrich and Julya and started Fixing my bike and the paneers, that were totally gone on the right side .
Wherever a biker has the cahace to meet and help a russian Biker - please do not hesitate to help them - they are the finest people and biggest hearts on earth you will meet !
Thank you Russia for making this trip so unforgettable for us !!

You could easily have moaned and complained about what's happened to you but instead you talk about the good people that you've met. I think that says a lot about you -- you have a pretty big heart yourself.
