Well too bad cos you need to be an authorized vee-hickle to use it, I'm not sure who does the authorizing or who authorizes the authorizers to do the authorizing and thereby authorizing the authorizee to be authorized but I was on the spot and with no authorizers in sight I took it upon myself to self authorize

When you see ad's like this (in the US) it does make me think " I wonder how much hassle it really is to import a bike"

I'm planning a 3 day ride with a mate from morgan to broken hill and back to adelaide via wentworth and loxton. Hoping to go later this month if Dave gets his bike fixed in time. Just wondering if anyone has done the Morgan to Broken hill stretch similar to this proposed route? I've chucked a google maps link below to a rough route i've been putting together in Mapsource. Or, if anybody has any suggestions for a better way through I'm all ears? Expecting it to be bloody hot this time of year too.

Morgan to BH is a well traversed route, PM KIZ (Marty) he went through there last week.

As for the west side of the Darling I went down it last week & you will have to adjust your route from Menindee.
You cant get thru the top end from Kinchega down to Bingara.
You have to go via Lake Tandou, Packers crossing & then left to Bingara.
It's sandy in places but easy.

Wow that is so cheap, would be well worth paying the import duty + shipping costs & you would still be way in front vs. buying one in Australia.

What a bargain..

Don't forget to factor in the cost of getting it converted to right hand drive also
