Default How to get a bike back from Northern island

Ive seen a 125 in Carrickfergus 10 miles from Belfast i live in Ellesmere Port 12 mile from Birkenhead, the ferry goes from Belfast to Birkenhead, is there anyway i could get the bike on the ferry and collect it this end without going over and collecting it myself, or can anyone recommend a cheap courior service, its a cheap bike so want to keep the cost down cheers Swirl

You could try contacting the ferry co. to see if they would get an employee to wheel the bike on and off the ferry, may have to pay a fee but that would be agreed upfront. Either that nor book one way as a foot passenger and one way with the bike......

surely it'd be cheaper to get a 125 over here?

those chinky 125 are worth about 50p after they've turned a wheel in anger

If it is a Chinese 125, pay someone a few quid to keep it in NI.

I'll have my sons CBF125 for sale shortly, he's passed his DAS and is just waiting for his licence back from the DVLA.

He's getting my CBR600 and I get the Honda 125 to sell and keep the money off it
