Bike Transport - Perth to Asia

No 'answers' from me, I'm sorry. A couple of mates and I are heading Perth to Paris next March, having already visited 60 countries on previous trips.

Simply getting the bikes to Indonesia or Asia has proven to be the biggest headache. Singapore is a tyohoon of red tape, and just too hard. The level of ambiguity is incredible via Jakarta, and we just cant seem to get a straight answer out of anyone Best bet so far seems to be airfreight Perth to KL via Air Asia Freight. They only accept orders through a partner company, however at least seem willing to help. The bikes need to be classified as dangerous goods, which makes it both tricky and expensive.

PM me if you want to arrange a coffee and a chat to pool information.

Regards, Tony.
