Buying Bike In Australia as Non-National
As some of you know, I am from Belgium, and in 2005 I spent 3 months in Australia. I bought a BMW R 80 from Betterbikes ( a secondhand motorcycle shop) They gave me all the papers, I went to the RTA ( close to the railway station, and close to the youth hostel where I stayed) give them my name and the adress from the youth hostel ( the lady who helped me said it was a good adress) and in 5 minutes and 50 AU$ I had the right papers to go on the road. I went on that bike from Sydney to Perth and back,did 13.000 km in 3 Months and sold the bike to the people of Motohansa ( a secondhand shop and parts for BMW,and a fantastic crew to help you out with really every question you have.) Both shops,Betterbikes and Motohansa have a website.
Hope to helped you a little bit.
