Questions regading shipping bike from Panama to Germany

Howdy,
I'm currently riding north through Peru with a rider from Germany. He'd like to continue north with me rather than return south to Valparaiso where he has shipping already lined up. He's been trying to get information on shipping from Panama back to Germany but hasn't really had any luck. The only response quoted $3000 - $4000 by sea . Anyone have any experience shipping a motorcycle to Germany (or close by) from Panama?

If the dude really wants to get over to Europe on the cheap he should head over to Suriname and ship out of Paramaribo, it is the cheapest shipping from SA to Europe. Crossing the GAP is costing a grand in itself

I don't suppose you have any contact info, do you?

That other site HUBB is where a lot of the good shipping information is
Here and here are some good links to start with and then sending out some nice pm should get you all the information you need.

That's where I would be shipping from if I where headed to Europe, and besides gas in Venezuela is dirt cheap
