Sending the Motorbike to Alaska by Air Freight.
At last the moment has come!
23rd May 2011 - The first leg of the journey begins as we take the BMW GS Adventure to James Cargo in Slough.
This weekend has all been about triple checking all the gear:
- Camping gear, spares, clothing, gadgets, bike check, loading and unloading the bike, intercom testing…
- Plus – Is there still space in the panniers so we can insert our day to day clothing onto the bike as we will be taking this with us on the flight?
Leaving the motorbike with James Cargo Air Freight. Heathrow to Anchorage
Today’s experience has been quite a straight forward one really.
James Cargo specialise in motorcycle transportation and we met Giles, Steve and Roddy on our arrival at their depot in Slough. Giles was the details man and sorted out all the admin stuff and payment. Steve was responsible for warehousing and packaging – then Roddy was just super informative and had lots of handy travel tips.
All in all a good couple of days. Here is a short video we filmed yesterday which shows you round the bike.
