I've shipped a bike 6 times now - 4 times by sea and twice by air.
All you need to do is disconnect the battery. Forget emptying the coolant, I didn't bother to empty the fuel - left a litre or so in there so I could drive it straight out of the docks.
I even had a car shipped from Canda back to Australia with 1/2 tank of petrol, no problems at all.
