  1. may need a bike ( mid sized 500) freighted from Nambour to Townsville.
    one mob of thieves quoted over $400.00 :-( ( door to door)
    anyone recommend a bike friendly carrier ?

    Bikes Only do motorcycle shipping and cover Townsville. Absolutely no
    idea of their service, but they did donate a shitload of money to the
    Townsville toy run.

    Yes, I can, but I don't think Townsville is on their list of usual
    destinations, so maybe you've already got a quote from them and weren't
    happy with it, I guess we'll never know. Ring a bike shop in Townsville
    and ask them who ships their bikes. You might be able to squeeze onto
    one of their loads.

  8. as it turned out the bike went to someone else so no need to
    chase up t/port quotes :-(.
    many years ago, back in the dreamtime you could take a bike to most
    attended railway stations and for very little $ it'd be railed up to
    ewe. was good as long as ewe werent in a hurry for the bike.
    Then, someone decided that QR was no longer a "service" so must compete
    in the "market". now, as far as i know its impossible to freight a bike
    or car by rail.
