MOST IMPORTANT: Be very sure everything is worked out before you ship either,

BECAUSE: as there are stories of cars, and motorcycles being held for years in Customs.
A good friend recently brought in a KLR650 and HD more than a year ago. But it was seized at the customs and impounded. They were able to have the KLR 650 released after a year but the HD is still "inside".

You might also want to consider to sell the bike w/o the accesories and just purchase one here. Then install those accesories or ask someone to sell them for you.
