    cos an unknown sh bike might cause problems when you ask it to do 5-6k in two weeks maybe if its been sat for a while
    its 3 grand utter barg for a new bike the second hand stuff i was looking at was 1500-2000 anyway
    no worries about wof just rego and go and wouldnt have to be precious cos hire bike

    found out since colemans in auck are renting the same bike for 55bucks a day so its looking like i might do that - i was looking at ex police bmw but thats disappeared :D

    stay i wish - need a permanent housekeeper ?? :D

    Fair enough. I imagine the ergos on the 250 strom should be better than a regular street 250 and so better suited to touring.
    Im a fan of touring on smaller bikes if you can afford to slow down and take back roads.

    Renting seems a lot cheaper. You will lose a lot more than 750 (14 days x 55??)trying to sell it s/h. I have rented from Colemans before. They were good to deal with. (We rented a 250 for one of my two sons only on learners licence. We were on 650s and he had no trouble keeping up.

    Happy planning.
