Trip Transport: Shipping Motorcycles - Perth WA to Izmir Turkey landing March 2012

Shipping Motorcycles - Perth WA to Izmir Turkey landing March 2012

Bumped into these guys at the Perth Motorcycle and Scooter Show the other weekend.

This is not an ad, I'm in the container already, need more bikes...

Need 10 bikes - Dave Milligan at Get Routed - GetRouted : Bike shipping and Tour Operator - is your man.

Shipping motorcycles from Perth, Western Australia []Fre...ern Australia] - Google Maps to arrive in Izmir, Turkey []Izmir Turkey] - Google Maps at the end of March 2012.

Get Routed will ship motorcycles out of Perth if 10 bikes can be found to fill the shipping container.

More info: GetRouted : Bike shipping and Tour Operator

See the 2012 Europe shipping: Izmir, Turkey arriving Izmir late March includes Perth

The return fees are quite attractive, landed and cleared customs and return from Felixstowe UK to Australia.

This method of getting to Europe is proving a popular way to:
1. Visit Gallipoli on ANZAC Day
2. Do the MotoGP circuit in the European Spring/Summer
3. Do the Isle of Man TT
4. Tour Eastern Europe and back to Australia via Ulan Bator / Vladivostok / Shanghai
5. EuroVision in Baku, Azerbaijan - baku, Azerbaijan - Google Maps
6. Heavy Metal Concerts all over Europe for Spring and Summer

One way trip for World Travelers to Eastern Europe and beyond...

Did I mention that we need 10 bikes out of Perth...

Hey Istanbul Bikers Club,

Did you mention ? Look forward to drying out the inside of yer fridge

I'll be in your neighbourhood for about 6 weeks, so don't hide on me...

My steering damper arrives on the weekend. Need to slow down the front of my ol' GSA. Can I expect sandy conditions on your country roads?

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.
