Y'know Doug... you're getting old.

Nowadays you even have a suspension on your bike... what's next ? Going to get a BMW GS ?

See you in a few days!

Cheers,
Greg

Customs changes

While you're waiting for your bike, would enlighten us on the customs difficulties you had.

BTW, much as I like to pull doug's rusty chain on things Alabama, the devestation in Alabama is too overwhelming for humor:

I would like to point out that even tho Alabama comes in at #49 in almost everything, theres always # 50 that we can look down upon. Yes, Harolds home state of Mississippi.
He is just jealous that I'm an uppity Alabamian.

It is a mess, and Im glad I missed it. On the other hand, I feel bad that Im not there to do something.

I FINALLY seem to have found a good shipper. Andre, who has a shipping company in LA (no, not Lower Alabama, the other LA, out in Cali)

He helped me last year to find a guy to fly in the parts I needed to Armenia when my shovel broke.

Anyhow, he booked it thru lufthansa cargo. it is the cheapest Ive ever paid to ship a bike, and the only problems I have had is because of the customs office in atlanta. I hate atlanta.

I dropped the bike off in charlotte, but lufthansa said it had to go on a cargo flight from hotlanta (would have been closer for me to deliver it there) anyhow, then customs informs the shippers at 5pm on friday, that I needed a notarized power of attorney, to let the shipper ship my bike. the shipper said they had never been asked for this before.
This is easter weekend, so I cant get it signed & sent til monday morning.
shipper in NC gets it tues, does some stuff, & sends it to customs who get it wed. they can hold it for 72 hours, which luckily they didnt, & it flew out today. I was told I couldnt get it from here til monday, but after a few contacts made, looks like I can get it tomorrow.

I was planning to be in Munich by sunday, so looks like things still may stay on track.

Doug

I feel ya. I hate it too, and I live here. I have land in Randolph co. AL, and have considdered for the past few years putting a house/ shop on it and getting out of here, but I think I'd probably get 45 cents for my house here. Thanks for sharing your shipping experiences. I am planning to have the r90 shipped next year for a trip with my brother in law.
