Magadan to Anchorage
 
Also....recently shipped the same two bikes (see the NY to London post) from Magadan to Anchorage....well kind of.

First we caught a flight from Magadan to Vladivostok - the bikes were empty of fuel and no battery and it was about $5/kg.....they were just laid on their side in the hold of the plane...both came out with a bit of tank damage.

The second flight from Vlad to LA was expensive. We had to pay for 2 wooden boxes to be made...we had to strip the bikes so that they would fit in a 2x1x1m box. The boxes were $500 for the pair. The flight was £3000 for 644kg of bikes and boxes - http://www.etribes.com/node/29416

Then...to Anchorge...well....we put them back together and rode them there!!!! There are no direct links from Russia to Anchorage!!!!! Well...not when we were there!!!!

Contact me if you need any further info

11/10 for guts and determination. Well done.
If I ever to a WTR in my 4 wheels, I suspect a ferry to Japan and airfreight to anchorage would be possible too. Don't the Americans have some wierd rules about mud on cars and steam cleaning them. As I recall my last visit to the states, they asked me if I had visited a farm on the landing card I was given. Note a long time ago. Did you have to clean anything - if so what was required?

Cleaning vehicle before shipping
 
The visiting a farm thing has to do with the various disease's related to livestock, and the possible spread of it. As for the mud, they feel that there may be insect larva not indigenous and possibly harmful to the people and animals in the country you are entering, as well as spores and/or seeds from plants. I heard Australia is very serious about this. There's probably some more in depth information on this at www.cdc.gov, for what it's worth.

4Wheels, it could have been that you were visiting the US during the Foot & Mouth outbreak in the UK. Most countries were 'decontaminating' UK visitors on arrival to make sure that nothing was being spread.

washing bike
 
We spent a day in magadan washing our bikes in a local river. Then (and the short story) we manded in LA with our bikes in a box. From what we could tell, no one had opened the boxes to check if they were clean.

This post is over 6 years old.

The information in it is even older.

There was no air shipping since 2006 between Magadan and Anchorage ... until July this year.

Yakutia Airlines began flights from Petropavlovsk to Anchorage in July, using 737s. That should mean they can now fit bikes in them, if the flights are still running. From Petropavlovsk you would need to fly onwards to Magadan, but I believe Yakutia do that route too.
