I've enquired with Aussie Post and DHL, but its expensive.

Two 10kg boxes to send to Germany is over $400.

Does anyone have any other suggestion on who I can enquire with?

Don't think Ruby wants to deal with shipping stuff via a boat anymore! Remember that caliper debacle Ruby? Shipped Ruby a set of calipers from California via a slow boat from China & it took right around 10 weeks to get to him (instead of the 4 to 6 weeks quoted). Way, way too much grief for a savings of 30% or so...

...I sent a 36 lb box ~16 kg from my base PO in Japan to a base in Germany for ~$85...but then you'd have to get the box to me and the guys on the other end would have to agree to the rest of the logistics?...

If you know anyone flying to the general area and not using up their quota for luggage you might could convince them to take it with them. I brought a bunch of books and a bicycle back from Oxford that way. Just packed them all in a huge cardboard box and checked it as oversized luggage (no extra charge btw). Got off the plane, retrieved my box and waddled through the airport with my monsterous box, suitcase and book bag:lol

When the aluminum framed CR250 first was released in japan (which was months before it was released in the states) dirt rider mag sent three guys with bit suit cases over to retrieve one. They went and purchased the bike at a dealer near the air port. Purchased tools. Took the bike apart in the parking lot, then brought it back in bits on the plane. Made for an excelent write-up and scooped all the other mags that way:)

have fun

ok,

you would have to send them to BNE so my miss can take them into work and send for you, also they will have to be address as though they are being sent by her(otherwise she can get into shit)

its about $160bucks from Brissy to Hamburg for both of them.
