Flying with Motorcycle "tools" gear.
« on: August 10, 2019, 10:48:41 pm »
I'm all up for any ride as long as I am prepared.

I just bought another bike and want to ride it back from KZN.

I however have all my tools, tubes and tire levers I'd like to take with (always prepared for kak)

Is it as simple as throwing it in my drybag or giant loop and booking it in as cargo?

Yes, just put it in your check-in bag and wrap it.
And if they ask, don't tell them you have tools in the bag.

...just be aware they do not like C02 cartridges (‘bombs’), each airline has its own rules, rather buy a few IF YOU NEED them at a bicycle shop or motorbike store up there..., but take an adaptor head up with you.

Same happened to me at New Delhi airport, almost missed my flight!
But I was allowed to keep them and fly them back, after all it's a metal container.
And I did find it a fun thing but afterwards only, I had to explain what they were for - which they'd never heard of before, amazing but true.

I got the same treatment flying back from Durban ................. they took them all and I missed the flight. AND they found a few rocks that one of my clown friends had put in as a joke.

Had to spend the rest of the day in the pub waiting for my next flight .................... cost me a small fortune.

And when I got home I found a couple more bombs left in my bag ............... amateurs  :biggrin:

Put your tools in your checked bag (without the bombs!!) and you will be fine. Not allowed "tools" with you on board. On board you are only allowed things you might need on the flight, like headphones, books etc. I know it is a farce, but after flying ad infinitum, believe me, just humour them and comply with their stoopid rules. They are all minimum wage slaves and are high on power....
A dangerous combination.
