Advice on possible shipping routes needed.

Hello there,

Serious itchy feet syndrome, so me and my Blade would love it if any of you guys could let me know if the following shipping routes are possible. If they are do you have any idea how long they would take? Only interested in air freight by the way as I want the changeovers to be as quick as possible.

1) Istanbul to Bangkok
2) Singapore to anywhere in Japan.
3) Japan to Western Australia preferably Perth.
4) Sydney to anywhere in California, USA
5) Anywhere on USA east coast to Ireland.

Thanks a million in advance to anyone that might be able to help me here.

Sorry, I don't have any direct help available - what has struck me about this forum is the sheer size of it.
Somewhere in here will be an amount of advice on parts of your proposed route, maybe all of it, so a search may pull out a start point for you.

Just like the recent changes for recommended workshops and accommodation, this forum might benefit from being split into regions of the world -oceans/seas to be crossed rather than continents to be travelled??!

Good luck with the planning,

Talking Getting there - Shipping the Bike database - left menu

Oops no I didn't even see that! Just had a look though and it is full of great info and good advice for all my routes bar one. So if anyone out there knows of any company that would be able to ship from East Coast USA to Ireland I would love to hear from you.

Thanks again!
