    Shipping a bike to the UK and riding -- suggestions & tips

    My significant other and I are thinking about living in the UK for 4-6 months in the next couple of years. She has dual citizenship and relatives who have vacant rental properties in London and southwestern England.

    I gotta believe being there that it'd be cheaper to ship my bike there rather than rent, or even buy one and sell it later.

    How long can I rely on my US registration?

    Does anyone have an experience doing something like this that they would like to share?

    Thanks much,

    You can fly a bike pretty cheap from Toronto, Montreal or Vancouver via Air Canada or Westjet if covid hasn't completely shut down their wide body flights.
