I deal with Perkins often, they're very good and fair. I work in the Honda shop in Darwin, but the first time I used them was on my RTW effort when I shipped to Dili from here.

Get in touch when you're coming and I'll have a cold ready for you.

You can get me via the Darwin community, or at Precision Motorcycles.
