Hi,

Have a read in the Europe and Trip Paperwork forums. You will find quite a few posts dealing with the subject and in great detail. It all depends a bit on what Passport(s) you have, whether or not you can have a fixed address somewhere and a few other things.

Are you staying long enough in Europe to make it worthwhile buying, rather than renting?

If you are looking for a bmw , near me is a guy who rebuilds ex gov bikes (mostly police ) and sells them. they look very good. He works on mine and is an excellent mechanic.
However, second hand bikes are cheaper in the UK than most of west Europe...
I live about 2 hours by train from paris, so feel free to email me.
