    Did you ship your bike up there, or buy one? We're looking at buying a bike in Ireland next year for a ride, and bringing it home, just sussing costs. Nice ride, Stelvio is just the berries, eh??
    lucky bastard

    Hi,

    I saw your post in another thread. I posted a link to who I used.
    I shipped my bike, just waiting for it to arrive back later this week, hopefully I cleaned it well enough to avoid any further charges.
    Patiently tracking the container around the world.

    Having my own bike was definitely an advantage in my mind, my friends both rented. I don't think it saved me a huge amount of money over the 6 weeks I was away when I add up all the costs. I did 12000kms, I haven't factored the cost of servicing and consumables yet.

    Stelvio was just one of the many stunning roads we covered, sadly we were a couple of days too early as some of the other swiss passes we wanted to ride were still closed until 1st June.

    I'll definitely go back, if not next year, then 2019 as there is still a lot of territory to explore, just scratched the surface.

    happy to share any learnings if you have any further questions.

    cheers

    Did the standard HW16 ride to Wellsford for a coffee. It was a nice ride.

    Have you tried Old North Road heading up? There is some nice riding on it but the road's condition isn't exactly great. It is better going North than South.
