shipping BMW motorcycle to EU

Post by Dover Rider »

Hello,
Has anyone had the experience of shipping their bike to Europe for a long vacation? I would like to travel the continent without buying another bike. Would especially like to hear from International members who would be willing to receive a bike shipped overseas from the US. Thoughts??

Matt Parkhouse, the Airhead tech writer for the MOA, always mentions Stefan Knopf in Germany. He's been using them for years and leaves bikes stored with them waiting for him to return for local trips.

Stefan is the way to go if you can meet his schedule. He has this down to a fine art and is in the process of building new warehouse facilities. I've kept a bike with Stefan in Heidelberg for several years and never had an issue when I needed the bike upon arrival. Even if you are not looking to store a bike (at very reasonable prices) he is the master of shipping - so long as time is not of the essence.

Good luck!

Thanks for the replies to my question. I will follow up on such good advice and try to reach out to Mr. Knoff. I have a friend in Wiesbaden so that will work out.
Cheers !

Hello, I bought a 50/2 from Flashback Enterprises in Imlay City, Michigan last September and they send a container regularly to Barrow-in-Furness, UK. Their agent in UK can deliver from there. They were reliable and efficient but maybe one-way only.
