I ordered it sent to my address in the U.S. and brought it back to Guatemala, Central America in my suitcase. NO problem bringing it back in the airplane, since it is dry and solid. The BMW dealer had no problem putting it in on my R1150R. They even asked me where I got it to recommend it to the RR racing enthusiasts since it weighs so little. Went on a ride over the weekend, and I could feel the lack of weight under the gas tank; it is a lighter bike now and easier to handle when parking and moving it around. I believe it is a very good improvement in handling.
