i missed that as was on the road.sadly.
anyway myself and bike are back home in perth western australia.
i flew the bike with james cargo.
it took around 8 days and was around 1650 english roubles.all seemed good until it landed in oz when the bureaucrats start there self justifying paper dance.you cant clear it from customs for 24 hours and will only be told this when you have sat in traffic for two hours getting to the airport.so repeat next day.then organize quarantine inspection.
if the crate has been tampered with in any way god help you.luckily mine was intact and i after brushing the wheel arches clean was allowed to wheel it out of the bonded wharehouse.
sadly i discovered my panniers locks had been smashed open and the stainless pins driven from their brackets.not really sure why as they were open so maybe someone in the packing shed didnt know how to open a cam touratech design bmw pannier lock.i have sent photos to james cargo who of course deny any wrong doing and want to blame the airline for accidental damage.if a lock could smash itself then lift a lid and pop a pin inside a pannier box and then bubble wrap itself and crate itself with no outside damage then i would believe it was an accident.....but it sounds like a shaggy dog story .anyway the saga of emails with plausible deniability being the topic.i still got a fkd pannier.
anyway after 2 years and 92000kms its pretty much the only damage incurred to note.
i would still reccomend james cargo but make sure you stay and watch it crated and also insure it!!
sadly i missed the shipping quote above.would have been very acceptable.now should i sell and go back and buy a bmr in uk or usa and never ever ship again!!!
