541kb sizeMotorcyclists who  want to explore Ireland’s stunning and rugged world-famous landscapes on their  own two wheels can now take advantage of a new logistics service to  Dublin.

The  new motor bike handling service launched by Bike-on-Board.ie  (BOB) was been created by freight forwarder EFL International Distribution, the  Irish partner of the U-Freight Group, to allow motorcyclists to fly on low cost  carriers into Dublin from all over Europe to meet up with their motorcycles that  have been transported in a purpose built, metal cradle suitable for the safe  transport of valuable motorcycles.

EFL’s  Chris Radley said: “Dublin now offers a bonanza of low cost airlines bringing  tourists from across the EU. Touring motorcyclists were missing out though, as  they had to drive their own bikes across Europe.

“Bike-on-Board  now allows them to deliver their bikes to a series of depots across Europe,   where our partners will secure the machines in specially-designed cradles.

“The  bikers can book their flights to Dublin to coincide with the arrival of their  bike, safe in the knowledge that their beloved machines will arrive safely at  our depot near Dublin airport where they can be re-united.

“At the  end of the holiday, our clients can then return their machines, which we then  pack for the return journey.”

The old  road system throughout Ireland, North and South of the Island, provides exciting  challenges to motorcyclists coupled with some of the most stunning scenery  available in Europe.

For  visitors to Ireland, BOB can arrange for transport to meet arrivals at Dublin  airport for the journey to the depot.

The  service is currently being offered from Denmark, Finland, France, Germany,   Greece Italy, Norway, Spain and Sweden though BOB is in expansion mode and  looking to increase its network through 2013 and 2014.
