how long does the shipping take and can you travel on the boat with the bike? Also noticed you were travelling in a car have you swapped that for a bike?

Shipping will be in a container, so no, you can't travel with it. Not sure about the timeframe - would imagine it will take 2-3 weeks and then custom clearance.

Yes, swapping for a bike - still have the Cruiser, but time to get on the bike again. Main reason for travelling in a 4wd was because we travelled in winter through pamir, Russia etc.
