Hello Gian, yes assistance in Visa Services, advice in preparing the bike and things like that. If you want a mechanic prepare money. Which is of course logical. I repeat that is a very fair price. At this moment people are in there from
Entry fees to be at the start and transportation of needed material in the case of HL. Add a few hunderds for renting and a deposit. Total budget is very personal.
FYI last year in the IR2012, bike apart, a friend of mine, I would believe in the region of €12000. Me, with my old DRZ, in the region of €7000. Mechanic included. This is the minimum, better to stay home if you cannot afford that.
But that was not the point
