    Hi all,

    I am going job wise to South Africa for a while and had planned to sell my GS here and buy new down there because customs is so high.
    Unfortunately the bike is not selling so I might have to take it with me. As far as I know customs and advalorem are 21% on the value of the bike.Thats ridicolous.
    Anybody any idea what needs to be done to lower this?

    Thanks for every advice, Alex
