Transporting a motorbike from UK

Hi

Does anyone know of any good companies who can transport a motorbike from the North East of England to anywhere from Granada, to Malaga areas...

Cheers

I've sent you a PM with a recommendation - not sure if I'm allowed to just post on here so thought better safe than sorry!

A UK based friend of mine rode a bike from the UK to Madrid last year. I don't think he charged much more than his expenses, and the airfare back of course. It was a Ducati, so it was an interesting trip for him - I don't know if he'd do the same if it was a more mundane machine!

PM me if you like and I'll give you his details.

Post the same question on some of the bike forums. There is a guy from the UK that has proper trailer etc etc and does the run regularly. Im sure I read it on www.ukgser.com/forums
