Leaving Bike in Turkey
I had a similar question, thanks for your reply.
That's a good option.
But how does Customs at airport know if you fly out and leave your bike?
Sure you entered by road, but that's no big deal: you might have hitch hiked in or by bus or something.
If you have a Carnet, then they stamp that for sure, altho I don't think you actually need a Carnet for Turkey (maybe I'm wrong, but I have a Carnet so can use it so it's not an issue).
But unless your bike is actually stamped into your passport, how does airport Customs know you are leaving a bike? Or that you have Carnet even?
And if they do know somehow, your Carnet is your guarantee that you haven't sold the bike to avoid paying duty. Maybe you need to arrange permission ahead of time, but I'd think it could be done.
In any event, lots of times guys ship their bikes out and travel separately.
The bike might leave before or after you do.
But the parking place you described sounds great, but I was wondering.
I was thinking of leaving my bike in India while I took a break, maybe I need to ask if there's a special storage there like the one you describe.
