thanks for the posts. however, shipping a bike from the US: minimum of $400 or something, right? possibly waaaay more. So if I can buy a bike in UK for equivalent price, pay 50 euro for green card insurance, and whatever small fee to get transit tags, how is it cheaper to waste money shipping a bike I just bought from the US to the UK? Especially if I'll have to get the insurance anyway. Just don't see that, unless there's some huge hidden expense I don't know about yet.
Also, I understand you have to have a UK address to buy and register a bike in the UK. However, I'm only interested in getting it out of the UK and the EU altogether. Would I still need a UK address to just get transit tags? Doesn't really make sense that I would, since the bike is clearly not staying in the UK. This question should be answered definitively soon enough, as I have an email in to the DVLA, and they're working to get an answer to these questions. I'll make sure to post for others with the same questions
