Hi

I am not that worried, if it is by air t is quicker, but I don't mind languishing around while a ship takes it somewhere then fly after it. I don't care which side of Oz either as I will ride it home from where ever, home being Rockhampton on the east coast.

I have no interest in riding through Indonesia with this bike. It has suffered enough of bad roads and is too heavy to control in slippery mud, it is the wet season now so there will be mud

Anyway, I still haven't heard from One Dollar, I may have to try and chase up a phone number.

Cheers
TS

I took a DL650 from Sumatra to Bali in February 5 years ago, and we were 2-up. Wasn't too bad, main roads were always paved, though road condition does vary a lot, and traffic is crazy. Some very steep hills in Sumatra, that had actually lost their surfacing after rains, so they were like riding "off-road"... and lots of water on the road at times in the north coast of Java (sometimes the water was actually running pretty fast, so that was a bit scary), and some landslides on the mountain roads, but other than those we were just fine. Side roads will be just about anything of course. But if you're riding solo, I don't think the bike or the roads would be a big problem. It takes time to travel through there, though. But Indonesia was one country, that I would not skip, if I had a choice.

Shipping from Bali to Oz is also possible (we had to give East Timor a miss, because we were in Indo at exactly the wrong time, when the coup attempt and resulting unrest happened in Dili)... we payed about 1200 euros for airfreight with Quantas. But the costs were inflated, because we wanted to go Perth, and the aircraft on that direct flight route could not take the bike, so the bike flew Bali->Melbourne->Perth (direct flight was 3,5 hours, but this was at least 10 hours!)

Also there were a couple of Aussies, who ended up using seafreight from Bali, or actually their bikes were taken by truck to Surabaya first, and shipped from there, but I donĀ“t know how it worked out for them.

Your Comments:
from Kuala Lumpur i think for the moment is the best option.
Maskargo you can deal without agents and you dont need a create

U can ship from KL to Perth, Sydney and Melburne. Is a bit cheaper the price kg to perth but the best advandage is that they will not care of the dimensions of the bike because they told me that the airplanes to perth are not so full as the others 2 australians cities so they will charge just for the kg.

there is no charge for costum clearance, u can do by yourself, everything is nearby walking distance.

Maskargo is located in the airport of KLIA to go there u will pass from the Sepang Circuit.

U dont need to go to visit them before u want to ship your bike. Just call about 5 days before you want to ship the bike to book the shipping of the bike, which they call export of the bike.

When you will call they want to know the dimension of the bike, the kg and the destination.
U dont need to be precise, just say something about. Remeber they will say even if u send to perth that they will charge for volume or kg depend which number is higher, but is bull shit, then they will care just of the kg.

so here the numbers

1) cal the booking number from local malay sim card 038 777 1 888
they will give you a booking number (call in the morning in the afternoon they hard answer)

2) call the reservation 038 777 1655, they will give you the name of the flight and the number of reservation.

the next step is bring the bike 1-2 days before the shipping at the cargo area of the KLIA airport.
in just 200 metres from the passager entrance.

to enter in the cargo area u will need a pass.
the pass you will get for free from a little hide police office outside the cargo area, they will take your passport and give you the pass. they are quite not nice police man, i would say mother ****er, sometimes they try to get 10 renge or they will let you wait a lot of times (didnt undestard why) however if they make problems call the booking number. try to arrive in the morning is better. Just ask people where you get the pass from cause found and explain where is is quite hard.

ones you are inside ask direction for maskargo area and they will show the way. when you will arrive you will weight the bike and you will pay wil casch or credit card (no extra fee for credit card) then you will go to the custum for get stamp your carnet.

The custum office is just after the entrance of the cargo area, is big building and you will go to the last floor to get the stamp.

Drive the bike there because you will get a inspection (check number of chassie and engine).

Ones u get the stamp drive back to the maskargo give the papers and is done.

They will say that you need to wrap you bike with the paper (transparent plastic) so you can buy before you go there or they will charge something. I said i didnt have but i didnt want to pay a guy to do because im able to do by myself. at the end they help me for free and i did not pay for the paper. (all little tricks to get more money).

one of the cheapper flights to perth is from KL or Singapore.
best option is fly from KL the same day you bring the bike so you dont need to take even a bus, but just walk for 10 minutes and you check in in the airport.

I did fly from Singapore and i went there by bus because was extreme cheap and because i wanted to see Singapore. but Singapore is just traffic jam city and i will never do it again if i would come back.

Trust me fly from KL.

WELCOME TO AUSTRALIA
sandwhich 12 dollar !!!!!!!!!
When you arrive in perth airport, walk out of the airport in the same direction the cars drive out. at the first junction turn left and you will see Dhl and opposite the custum office. they open at 8.30 in the morning. get your stamp In (they dont give a **** if you have the bike or not cause they dont check your bike).

After custum walk to quarantine back to junction, go straight and u will see the office on the right. give all the paper and pay the bill and book and inspection. sometimes you neeed to wait 2 days before get it. Try to make move their ass and do it on the same day. THEY ARE NOT BUSY THEY ARE JUST ****ING LAZY..

bill to get the bike
105 aud for quaratine ispection
+
157,58 for other fees

Finally you are on the road ....but the dramma is not finish. to be legal you must have the registration of your bike !!!!

Here comes the fun, you need to book a road inspection of the bike. Ones done this you will register your bike and finally you are legal....you will wait a lot, you will pay a lot and you think they stuff should work propelly but NOT ....AUSTRALIA for this is even worste then italy, they will make mistakes and in the end, i waste 2 weeks of my life for this ...Australia with a bike from outside never again !!!!!

The officers dont know even their jobs ....crazy
