  • Philip Island Classic 2015

    Beloved and I are planning to go next year, but as I am old and decrepit it would take about me a year to ride across the Nullabor. Has anyone "shipped" bikes over to Adelaide (and back) before and if so any idea of costs?
    thanks all

    Errr....why would you be shipping it to Adelaide when Philip Island is near Melbourne??......My bike is going to Melbourne as I'm leaving Perth to live there and that is costing me $610 fully insured through Bikenut Transport.

      Granny, my wife and I are doing just that, riding to the 2014 Phillip Island Classic as I type.

      My transport was expensive ($762) but no crating and you can load your panniers etc to the brim allowing you to fly with minimal luggage, we even loaded helmets to bike.

      Just turn up at depot and ride away!

      We've travelled up through the higher regions of Victoria because we were visiting people in the Wimmera and endured the Hottest (47 degrees!) City in the world but so far having a ball.

      We are riding on to Sydney where we will fly back from as we are also seeing people there!

      Anything in detail you wish to know let me know!
      Every Day Above Ground is a Good Day!

        Women are like motorcycles, they should be ridden hard and kept well lubricated ...

          Sorry

          Fabulous! Please tell me more? Depending on costs and my hubbies machismo (no problem 800km or more a day)we may transport 2 bikes across to Adelaide (where my sister-in- law lives) before hitting the road. It seems that some bike transporters won't let you take anything attached to a bike so seriously interested in who you used.
          thanks for replying!

            I have used these blokes in the past and they will let anything that you ride with on the bike, onto the truck but no loose items. That is, saddle bags, tank bags etc are all O.K.

            Their on line quotes seem to be higher than if you ring them also? It is a door to door delivery.
