"Can I Ship My Harley to Panama?"

Motorcycles By DON WINNER for Panama-Guide.com - Received this morning via email: "Hi Don, I am moving from Singapore to Panama. I have a Rocker C Harley. I was wondering if you know if it is possible to bring my bike into the country, how I would do that, and some idea on cost or who I could contact. We will probably end up in the Boquete area. Is there a Harley Davidson dealer in Panama. If so what do bike run there, a range not knowing the Model. I am trying to decide if I should buy one there or ship mine if possible. I have my bike just how I like it now and hate to part with it. Thanks for your help, Bill."

Editor's Comment: Well, you can literally ship anything to Panama. It's only a question of the price, taxes, fees, etc. I'll send you an email with a couple of suggestions for people who can ship it for you. Yes, there is a Harley dealer here in Panama. So, you might want to sell your bike where you are and then buy another one here. That might turn out to be the cheaper option, but not if you're in love with your bike. The costs of the bikes here in Panama are comparable to standard prices in the US with an expected markup for shipping and import taxes, etc. Meaning, you won't pay much more than expected in Panama for a new bike. Some also come up occasionally on the used market as well.

Harley Davidson in Panama - Get Your Motor Runnin'

Motorcycles Greg Schneider said it best - "As the Summer of Love evolves into the Autumn of Viagra, baby-boomer males are buying all the cool toys they couldn't afford as kids." And what could be cooler than selling off the empty nest, moving to Panama and spending your retirement playing golf, sport fishing in the Bay of Panama, and day-tripping around Panama on a brand-new Harley Davidson. Ivan Perez is the owner and operator or Harley Davidson Lifestyle, American Bikes S.A. and is the only authorized distributor of Harley Davidson in Panama. "There are about 200 Harley's in Panama right now and there are more coming down all the time." There are two Harley riders clubs in Panama City, and Ivan is the founder of the Harley Owners Group (HOG) Panama. They meet every Tuesday evening at his Harley Davidson shop in Marbella and head out for a ride.
