Hi Grant, thanks for the input
The thing is, the KLR is Californian plated, so I cannot legally sell it here in Argentina without trying to import it officially and permanently. According to Javier at Dakarmotos, selling it on the sly will mean practically giving it away -and i will need wheels when i get back to the UK anyway.
Thanks for the warning of possible refusal for registry in england -i will phone dvla again to check and customs again too.
As for the shipping, i have found out (again through Javier and Sandra, who have so far been very helpful) that a container can fit about 6 bikes, and that this would be cheaper per bike than individual crating..
I have mine and two others so far, and need another 3 to make this happen.
If you know anything else to look out for please let me know! Thanks again
