Purchase in Malaysia, than Indonesia
Trying to come up with a definitive plan for exploring Indonesia and than the rest of SE Asia. But I've encountered a small problem, a foreigner in Indonesia cannot own a bike unless they are residing on a long term visa. It's no problem to get a bike, but probably impossible to take it out of the country.
So wonderin what the regulations are in Malaysia, specifically
1. Can a tourist legally purchase a bike? If so
2. Can that motorbike be brought into Indonesia for say 6 months or other ASEAN nations?
3. Is a carnet required or any other paperwork, insurance/tax?
4. Are good 250cc trail bikes, DR'S, XR's, Yam TT's, available in Malaysia and what is the price new?
I believe I'm right in believing that Malaysians don't need a visa for Indonesia. Thus hoping as in Europe you can travel unimpeded with your own vehicle through Indo and neighbouring countries.
Was originally planning on going from South Africa to Indonesia and back. Too much shipping so will now make it two separate trips.
