First ride

You can see my smiling! ;-) It doesn`t stop for the two hours from the airport to the home of my travel companion.

Today we plan to visit Hollywood and Beverly Hills.

Decrating at LA Airport

The crate has arrived without any damages in LA. The paperwork procedure was awfull.

The assembling of the bike puzzle takes around 2 hours.

Ready for Transportation to the airport

Today we finished the crate and the preparation of the bike. My father rented a forklift to lift the crate into the trailer. He did this like someone who never did anything else...... ;-) Next Friday the 25th we will transport the bike to Dusseldorf Airport. One week!!!! ;-) I become more flustered from day to day....... ;-)

The crate

My father has build the crate frame for the transportation at the 25. of September. We tryed the size and the fixing of the bike onto the wooden bottom of the crate these days. I have to disassemble the front wheel to lower the front of the bike. Now we are looking for a stand to fix the front axle in a low position. One week before the bike leaves we will close the crate with thin wooden plate. After this, the crate will be transported by trailer to the airport Dusseldorf.

At the moment i am preparing my paperworks with the last handwritten notices in the maps of the countries i travel through. At the moment i am waiting for the last insurance contracts for the motorbike in the US and mexico.
