Moving to Sydney
I was surfing the net to know more about motorcycling in Australia and got into this page. I have read the problems of a lot of people trying to send the bike to Australia. I have found a lot of problems to take my VFR 800 (just one year old) to Sydney. I am leaving Madrid (Spain) in two weeks and plan to stay in Australia for at least a year. Well, besides the price, insurance, time, etc, etc, there is no warranty that the motorcycle will make it in one piece and on time. So I have decided to sell it, (even though just thinking about it hurts!) and buy one over there. I think pricewise it is cheaper to buy a motorcycle there than here in Spain. However, there are some things that I would like to know so if anyone could help....I would appreciate it, thanks!
I would like to know how expensive insurance is, let's say for the same model, Honda vfr 800. What about leather jackets, pants, boots, helmets,..... And I am sure there will be really nice riding spots over there. Can anyone tell me which ones are in the Sydney area?
Thank you all.
