Default Please help me make this trip happen

Hello,

I was wondering if some forum members with experience importing could chime in. I live on the east coast of the US and want to import my bike to Germany and back, so I can do the nurburgring, and tour stuttgart and munich.
Are there any reasonable companies out there that can provide a decent quote for shipping roundtrip? I was quoted for one company an insane amount....
If this option is not feasible, are there any good companies in Germany where you can rent a sportbike for a week or so (R6, zx6r)?

Any feedback/advice would be greatly appreciated.

I just moved back to the states from Germany this past summer and you would probably be better off renting a motorcycle. Unless you register yours in Germany you won't be able to ride it on public roads.

s/n: It's not easy to register anything in Germany.

Also from what I have read there is a 98db restriction.

I'm not sure how you're going to get it registered in Germany but shipmybike.com is really good for shipping bikes overseas or in the us.
