me again. ok I spend ten days in cuba on the bike - I did not like cuba (more about that later for the ezine ...)
getting the bike into the airplane in Caracas was difficult and I would not recommend doing it, it was illegal and I bribed the cargo guys in the wharehouse.
getting the bike out in Cuba took one and a half days, but with a bit of spanish it was easy and straight forward. another few hours to get a cuban plate, no problem.
I paid all up for flying the bike and getting it out: 500 USD
The customs in cuba told me that they had a british couple on bmws and a japanese rider on a honda coming in this way into cuba.
Grant. I dont think any cuban in cuba spends much time on the internet, and as you know, they cant leave their prison island.
I took a sailboot from cuba to dominican republic, easy, but I took the bike completly apart.
and thats where I am now, in the Dominican Republic.
