The container ship has arrived! 

It sailed on January 18th, 2015 from Laem Chabang, Thailand, via Singapore, China and Japan and is finally here in the U.S.! A five week journey comes to an end, including the wait time in the Bay of San Pedro due to the strike of the Longshoremen.

Now just a few details are left to be solved: X-Ray of the container, customs clearance, warehousing, trucking to Chicago, warehousing there, truck to Champaign!

Will see when I can welcome the motorcycle in my garage again!

I will keep you posted.
