Ship bike from US to Europe and back

How much would freight cost for transporting a K48 say from NY to Rome and back?

Or would it be cheaper to rent over there? My experience to rent a R1200GS A is about $1,000/week in Phoenix, AZ.

I think it depends on how long you're going to ride over there.
Check this out first: Air Canada?s new motorcycle cargo options | Canada Moto Guide
I'll go that route when I go to Europe because I'll spend three to four weeks over there.

When I was going to move to Libya I prepared to send my bike to Europe with a German company that sends containers from Florida to Frankfurt on a regular basis. Far less expensive than you expect. Tons of rules and paperwork to prove ownership. Insurance issues too.

That's less than I paid to rent a K1300GT back in '10. Where did you rent from?

@hunzee , thanks, that's $800 a week plus. I'm trying to find out where in Germany you can rent a K1600GT for $560 per week.
