Hi sorry to hear and I hope you are ok.
I don´t know anything about that part of the world but I would think about finding a transport company or maybe rent a car with small trailer and transport it yourself if possible.

Good luck.

Just ask at your lodging--hotel, airbnb, whatever. They'll find someone with a truck, and although you might pay more than a local it'll be relatively painless and quick.

Last time I did this I had food poisoning (or whatever) in Armenia, had to return a rental bike and catch my flight, but couldn't ride. I accompanied the bike in a little hired truck, napped fitfully all the way back to Yerevan, and got everything done with time to spare.

If you are not injured, stop every truck going through your town until you find one that is willing to carry your bike.

I had to do that once in Brazil.

Mostly that way is the cheapest: the local automobil club

You have to get membership (for one year), what is not so much:


For 300km a private person has to drive two ways and fuel does cost something.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
