    After that I should be able to use the regular site to see if it actually docks. When it was in Germany I could tell when the ship docked.

    Sounds like the AIS tracking will reach out 60 miles so if it doesn't dock I should see it anchored off shore.
    It's nice the tracking sites tell you if the ship is moving and how fast.
    My ship arrived last night and went straight to the dock.
    The original ETA was Saturday night so it was only two days late.
    I noticed the last two days it was only going 10 knots or less.

    They're getting close to final count down.

    Some Considerations

    FWIW, I would not buy a 2021 or 2022 MY of the R 1250 RT, or you may end up kicking yourself when BMW finally decides to add on the rest of the Bosch ARAS they should have added from the start: blind spot warning lights and rear collision warning. It's my view that anyone who bought the models with only the ACC portion will be a bit pissed when these other features are added. Why BMW couldn't manage putting on all three when Ducati was able to add it to the Multistrada is beyond me. It's a recipe for alienating customers who bought a new model a year or two before they got around to having a fully functional equivalent of the Bosch ARAS.

    The container was unloaded from the ship middle of last week and now the container tracking shows "Full import container out gated" "BBT LOGISTICS INC"
    BBT is a trucking company.

    This is what I see today 04-Oct-2021 15:49 Empty container returned BBT LOGISTICS INC

    From the beginning, Easton, Pa has shown as the final destination.
    I'm guessing the container was emptied out at the Easton Pa. warehouse yesterday.

    I'm surprised there has not been any delays so far.

    I can now see the DHL tracking.
    Engles in Kansas City may get the bikes next Tuesday, the 12th.

    We plan to head to Arkansas on Tuesday so we'll do the trade after the trip.

    I hope you won’t be riding so fast you’re going to miss the “new bike smell”.

    At least we can see there is something to the “destination charge”.
