No personal experience... But my friend sent a 1200GS from London to BA at the end of 2010, and I think he said he payed about 1500 euros (freighted by British Airways). It wasn't trouble-free at the receiving end, where he ended up using some agent (took several days to get the bike out of the airport), so I think that probably cost him something as well. And sending back to Europe from Argentina, again by air, was a lot cheaper. Sorry if this is all a bit vague, I could ask him for more detailed info!

We shipped our two bikes (and us) via Grimaldi. Not too expensive and worked out great.
If you need help and/or info, you can contact Mirko at
Die erste Website für Deine individuelle Fahrzeugverschiffung - Gravel Road Logistics - We ship you out there
He´s verry nice and extremely helpful, has contacts in B.A. and has now started his own transport company.
I´m sure he can help out!

why Buenos Aires? Argentina is not the easiest country on the planet considering import tax and issues.

We've met a german guy who flew his 1200GS to Quito, Ecuador... got it out of the airport in an hour!
