Buy, Export & Ship from France

Dear All,

Most sincere apologies for slightly random question,.... but I have searched (honest) and I'm not sure where to put the question.

Please feel free to suggest moving the question to a more appropriate place or direct me to other forums.

IN A PERFECT WORLD,

I'd like there to be a company/individual that could help me buy a bike in france for export and ship it to Egypt (where the real nightmare will begin, but I can deal with this end).

OR

Buy in France for export to UK, although the whole type approval homologation special rule stuff scares me a little.

Any suggestions appreciated (without to much abuse )

Cheers

Why you don't buy a bike in UK and ship it to Egypt. Don't know wha ttype of bike you need but Yamaha is a good one Tenere 660 . I know a place they sell them . New or used?
If you ride two up (w/your partner) I will recommed to go with a 1000cc

By the way I am selling my Suzuki Vstrom Dl1000 , 2003 with 40k miles in perfect condition, including panniers and top case (originals) for US$ 5,300 .
I can ship it for you anywhere you want. I do export from Miami.
If you want pictures and info. let me know

Help in France

Thanks Gaston,

However, I know pretty much exactly what bike I want for solo long distance off road desert touring. These very rarely come up in the UK, but can be found in France (Italy/Germany/Spain too).

In my rubbish French I have tried to contact a few sellers, but so far I haven't found answers regarding export, shipping or even if it is possible to buy a bike without an address in France.

Still hoping someone can point me in the right direction, or even suggest where to ask the questions.

Cheers
