What the others said. however if you have the money to pay for transporting your car and a bike then i would use that money and buy a bike in the UK. If you look after it you can probably get most of your money back when you come to sell it. They are cheap in comparison to the rest of Europe, great for commuting around London and the rest of the country (i commuted in London for 20 yrs on a motorcycle) and there are some awesome bike meets in and outside the city. Plus there is such a high percentage of motorcycles being used for commuting in London that it makes the ride to and from work a blast.
