    Hi Peoples,

    I live in Australia and I might have the chance to buy a set of vfr800 oem panniers in the US but they don't ship outside the US. Can anyone help with shipping or a way around this. I know someone on here has shipped gear to Oz before for someone but I can't remember who it was. Any advice would be cool.

    Thanks
    SJC

    Something tells me I'm on the wrong coast to help you but if you wanna pay all the shipping fees I'll be happy to recieve them and ship them your way. BTW what asshat company are you dealing with that won't ship outside the US???

    I just spoke to a guy who buys alot of bike parts from OS yesterday. I was whining about the freight costs from the UK. He put me onto a freight forwarding agent concept. Think the website is US Mail Forwarding, International Shipping | MyUS.com. You could shoot them an email.
    I agree with Metal, it's not that big a deal to send a parcel to Aust. Good Luck

    You Australians drink all the cold beer and steal all the cute woman away with your Australian accents and then want help from us LOL!!! If you can find out what the box dimensions and weight are I can check into the shipping costs for you. Not sure but I'm thinking it would be cheaper to ship from the West Coast of the US.

    I can still ship Scubalong to you if you'd like. Hey Scuba, do you prefer to travel by FedEx or UPS??
