My wife and I are just getting to the point where we can begin taking some long trips and have talked about shipping our bikes to Germany and New Zeland. All of the information on this thread is going to be invaluable in teaching us the "do's and don'ts" of traveling abroad. 2008 will be my wife's first riding season (we live in Iowa) where she has her own bike, a BMW F800ST so we are already anxiously looking forward to next summer's adventures. Thanks everyone for your contributions.
