Quick question about buying a bike in Australia that's not worth it's own thread:

I'm moving to Tassie from the US in February, not sure if a bike is in the budget, still weighing my options. From eBay and gumtree (plus common sense), the market in Tasmania is pretty small, seems like there are heaps of bikes available in Victoria though. Looks like $217 for a single bunk + bike on the Spirit of Tasmania, plus 280kms worth of petrol to get it from Devonport to Hobart. Would be easy to pull off over a weekend, especially with a cheap Jetstar flight to get me over there.

1) Question about that drive: is there a minimum displacement bike to ride on the national highways? Mostly eyeing something like an XR250 (had an XLR250 Baja in Japan that I liked), although haven't ruled out an old postie bike or something.

2) If I buy something without current rego (seems to be most bikes), is it generally not a huge hassle/expense to get an Unregistered Vehicle Permit issued in Victoria for a direct interstate trip back home? Obviously, would be aiming to get it registered in Tassie once I get back. I can't find any info on pricing without calling them, and it seems to basically be up to them whether to grant it or not. I'd have a Tasmanian driving license with a residential address on it.

3) Tasmania apparently doesn't do RWC's, but you still need to have any ex-interstate vehicle inspected before you can register it. In Japan, my bike was too small to need any kind of inspection, in Florida we have nothing like that (even for cars... I saw a ute bed held to the frame with rope out in traffic last week), so no idea what to expect as far as cost and pain in the arse. I can only handle really simple stuff on my own even in the best of times, and I'm unlikely to have much in the way of tools with me at first anyhow.

Probably cheaper just to get the bike transported to Tassie than have the hassle of travel and unregistered vehicle permits. Can't remember the name but there is a Tassie based bike transport company that I have used in the past, reasonable price and excellent service door to door.

I'm looking for a complete rear rim for a 2014 F800gs, hopefully someone knows of one being wrecked or some such. Im looking for an extra to put my knobbies on so I'm not destroying tyres riding to work.

Cheers, Aaron.
