Welcome to HU!

First, check the shipping database - left menu, under Planning: Getting There - Shipping the bike

You are unlikely to find exactly that, but it will give you some great ideas and information to help you figure it out.

Second, I'd seriously consider shipping out of Buenos Aires if you can make that work. Brazil is a known major pain in the butt for shipping in and out.

When you've made your shipment, please add it to the Shipping database so other travellers can benefit from your experience!

Also don't forget to post a few words about your trip in the Ride Tales Forum, and send me a few words and photos for the E-zine / Newsletter too!

have a great trip!

trip

hello,

the database currently has no info for shipping brazil -> mauritania. but i will add the info once i manage to ship.

my trip started in los angeles on 26th January. After 109 days we reached Ushuaia and now we are close to Buenos Aires, going North.

If we manage to ship to Africa we will continue to Gibraltar and then to our home country, Romania.

For pictures for E-Zine feel free to browse our blog, Americas 2010

Cheers!
