Arrow Anyone shipping to Asia from India soon?


I am planning on shipping to Asia from India in the next few weeks most likly from Chenai to Bangkok. From threads read it appears to be a lot cheaper to ship 2 or more bikes at the one time so if anyone is in a similar situation and would like to ship somewhere that direction let me know.

Cool have a good one

Chennai to Bangkok

Hi there Chris ...

I'm currently in Islamabad and looking to leave in the direction of India over the next few days. It might be a bit late for you, but I'm hoping to do the same air-freight route for my Dakar over the coming weeks (end of Nov/beginning Dec).

A bit of background is that I'm planning to meet my girlfriend in Thailand at the end of December, and could do with getting to Bangkok a couple of weeks in advance at least. It would also be a good idea to get a line drawn in the sand with dates, to enable me to book my own passage upfront too.

In this regard have already started sending out emails to try and get something in place re: air-freight before getting across to SE India. If my timing's too late for you, then would really appreciate some feedback for how you fare ...

P.M. me and will send you my direct email addy. Regards Lenzzzzzzzz (Len Jones)

Missed the boat

Hey Len,

I left Chennai a bit over two years ago...... So unfortunatly will have to miss out on this one. Not sure on air freight but I shipped to Bangkok fairly incident free and may be able to provide some contacts if I can rack my brain.

Have fun on the Karakorm if you have not been there yet and let me know if you need any info.

Have a good one

Hi Guys,
I am planning to ride in Asia (two people on two motorbikes) next year. Our plan is to go from Kyrgistan, through China (KKH) to Pakistan, then to India and after that to Thailand. I am looking for the possibilities to ship/freight the bikes through Bengal Bay. Initially I though about crossing Myanmar, but I know this is impossible. So, I understand that there is now other option than shipping bikes from India to Thailand. Could you guys please let me know if you have any contact with shipment companies which can help me with our bikes? I have seen that you have some experience in Chennai. Chris could I write you a private message regarding KKH and crossing Pakistan / Indian border? I am looking for any tips regarding this.
Cheers and good luck.

Bike ship India to Bankok

I have the same prob. How to get over Myanmar and have considered hiring a truck....or flying from Nepal which I understand is relatively painless.
So if anyone is about that has some advice or wants to share let me know.
