BA to Texas

Hi elwood.
We might be interested is such an option. We are in Colombia at the moment. Plans are indefinite, but are heading that way. Somewhat later than April 1 would probably work better for us. We have two motos.

Hello Elewood:

Yes, very interested. I am in Cartagena and can be in BA around the first of April. That is perfect timing for me. Please let me know the details. Martin

$13,295 us is the first quote i got back. and that doesn't include some fees in Texas. That was for 6 bikes in a 20ft container from Buenas Aires to Houston.

What are people willing to spend?

Yowtch!

I can do RORO to Europe for about $1500 for me + bike from BA, have a great adventure and have my bike ready to go on another continent for about $1500....sorry but I won't spend more than that to go "home".

I really appreciate your looking into this E...if you come up with something else, please let me know!!!
