The bike left in its crate today bound for Italy.
Its one of the final steps of a project that has turned out to be a little larger than I thought it was going to be – however, its al a learning experience.
Anyway – here are some pics of the bike in the crate.
I expect it to actually leave on the ship next Saturday with a transit time to Italy of about 40 days which should give us a few weeks of the bike in italy with out me there which is very decent indeed.
One of the things I did to get the bike into Italy is to get a Carnet de Passage. My only concern is that when they get it in Italy no one will know what the heck to do with a bike arriving on a carnet de Passage and procede to make life uncomfortable for me in getting the bloody thing out of customs – fingures crossed.
Pics as always.
