Changes at Get Routed

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZ BOX -

Founder of in­ter­na­tional mo­tor­cy­cle freighters Get Routed, Dave Mil­li­gan, has sold a sec­tion of the busi­ness due to on­go­ing health is­sues. The New Zealand side of the busi­ness is now owned by Clive McFad­den of Tug­gerah, NSW.

“I will be as­sist­ing Clive with en­quiries for the first few months,” says Mil­li­gan. “I will also con­tinue to load the New Zealand ship­ments out of Mel­bourne, while Clive will do the Syd­ney load­ings. There will be 3 ship­ments each out of Syd­ney and Mel­bourne next sum­mer and us­ing the same dates ship­ments from Bris­bane when there’s more than 10 bikes.

Barcelona bound Although he is pulling back a lit­tle on the work load, Get Routed’s Dave Mil­li­gan says he plans to do an­other ship­ment of bikes from Australia to Barcelona in 2016. “The ship­ment I did in 2012 was a suc­cess­ful ex­per­i­ment and I’ve de­cided to re­peat the ex­er­cise with an added twist. Get Routed has a small group who want to travel with me around Spain, Por­tu­gal and France in April and May next year be­fore go­ing to the Isle of Man TT, and as it hap­pens I al­ready have a group who want their bikes shipped to Van­cou­ver, Canada at the be­gin­ning of July and back in Septem­ber. The bikes go­ing to Barcelona – some of them have asked me if I can send the bikes from Felixs­towe (af­ter the TT) to North Amer­ica thus al­low­ing them to do a com­plete cir­cuit of the globe with their own bikes, be­fore ar­riv­ing back in Australia in Novem­ber from Van­cou­ver. I’m cur­rently work­ing on a price to get the bikes from the UK to North Amer­ica (prob­a­bly Mon­treal or Van­cou­ver) to catch up with my wife, Maggie, whose bike will be go­ing in the ship­ment from Australia to Van­cou­ver. That means 10 weeks in Europe fol­lowed by 10 weeks in Canada/USA. Any­one else keen? If so, email Dave on [email protected] – no point call­ing him as he’s in Athens at the start of a 3 month Greece, Italy and France trip which in­cludes the is­lands of Crete, Si­cily, Sar­dinia and Cor­sica.
