If you haven't used whole baggage courtesy of the military from your home of record yet, you or fam member or someone you trust could pick up the bike, bring it to your home of record, then the military should pick it up and deliver. i had them ship my bike from wi. to miss. a long time ago 12 years, they may still do it. the bike was well packed and arrived perfect condition. P.S. been there, done that, come back in 1 piece brother.
