I found this forum while doing some research on a future extended vacation to the land of Oz. I'm 54, my kids have grown up and my wife complains too much. I am going to be asking a ton of probably weird questions here in the future, I hope to bring my 2009 Yamaha Star XVS 1300 Tourer to your country, I only got back into two wheel a couple of years ago. I drive a concrete mixer in Alaska and have been a heavy equipment mechanic most of my life, also I have traveled almost all of America or what we call the lower 48. If all goes to plans I may fly in to Sydney before the end of the year, naturally our season is opposite and I make all my money only during the summer up here. The winters are killing me, my bike is sitting behind me in my house and I swear its crying, it only has 1350 miles on it since october of 2009. Correct or enlighten me but from I hear your cruiser bikes cost way more than what we pay for here in the states. A reason why I am trying to bring mine there. Thats about all in this thread. Well thanks and safe riding.
