I haven't done this trip exactly, but I have flown my bike twice.
Once from Brisbane Au to Thailand and then from Cambodia to Korea.
Both times were pretty easy, but when in a foreign country, you have to do a lot of running around - but worth it, you end up meeting people you would have never even talk to with amazing stories.

Both times I did this, it cost around $700. The first time it was uncreated the second time it was

good luck with the planning!

Check the shipping database, over 1000 shipments are in there!

Link on left...

We always recommend shipping the bike OUT of exotic places, not IN. MUCH less problem and you won't be waiting/wasting weeks of your holiday if something goes wrong. Or worse it disappears...

MOST people fly to Japan, then take the ferry to Vlad. Shipping in to Vlad is almost impossible.

Let us know what happens and how it all works out! The more people add to the shipping database the more useful it is for all.
