    Thanks guys for all your help. I have been working away the last few weeks so have not been able to get on the forum.

    @oldbeer, thanks for all the advice! I did not think of a lot of the option you thought of. I think you are right too, I need to ride the bike myself, so, might take you up on the ride around when I arrive :). I'm quite interested in a DR650 that's listed on trademe at the moment in Auckland. I have emailed them asking them to un-block my account as I will living there shortly - fingers crossed!

    Thanks again everyone!

    Happy to help if i can.

    I saw that one. Looks nice. You will probably find one with less kms but all those farkles are tempting.

    You might find the owner on here or on adventureridingNZ.

    Folks:

    I actually bought a motorcycle on my second day in New Zealand (Dec. 8), and have been doing a lot of riding. However, I'll need to sell it before I head back to India on Feb. 13, so if anyone is interested in a good used bike (practically new), let me know.

    Bike details:
    Hyosung GT 250
    White
    starting mileage 2266 kms
    expected final kms 6000 or so
    WOF good through June 2019
    Asking $4000 OBO

    As you can see from the mileage, this bike was practically new when I bought it. It is a 2010, but was showroom perfect. (Not so much any more. I've been riding a LOT. :jack But it's never been down and is basically just now broken in. Just kinda dirty.)

    I'll throw in a like-new helmet (don't want to carry it to India.)

    I'm in Taradale house sitting, but the owners are due back Feb. 6 and I'm hoping to make a very quick trip to the south island before returning to Auckland to fly out very, very early Feb. 14. If there's transport from where I can drop the bike to the airport, I'll bring it to you.

    I've got a NZ sim card so if anyone is interested, PM me and I'll get back to you.

    Karen

    First things first, im pretty sure that's a GT250 and not a GT250R. The R model has a fairing and clipons.

    An indicative/aspirational selling price would help.

    Secondly i couldn't see it on TradeMe. If you haven't already done so i strongly recommend you list it there. Id be very surprised if you sold through the flea market here. I wouldnt rely on it.

    If you need any assistance with trademe let me know.

    Cheers and good luck.

    I tried to put it on TradeMe, but I'm not from NZ, so they wouldn't accept me. (Even though I put in all local info.) That's why I'm here. :(

    Sorry about the mistake on the name, it's fixed. So is the price. Wasn't sure I should put that in. I just hate to leave the bike sitting at the airport when I leave, so I'm hoping I can sell it somehow.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I’m not on FB and I’m getting help from a long-standing member here to put it on TradeMe.

    By the way the person above sold their Hyosung for a good price and while i don't know the details im betting they saved a heap on a hire scenario.

    One more example of "buy one when you get here" working well.

    I have a spare Vstrom seat for sale. Fits a 2008 model so most of the earlier models - defo does not fit the 2018 model!! I bought this from a wrecker on TM to faff around with the seat height, while not stuffing up the stock seat. The KTM wannabee cover is stapled on, comes off with a bit of effort and a screwdriver, pair of pliers to pull the staples. Making a new cover once you have remoulded the seat to your taste is not difficult with a conventional sewing machine. I made paper patterns and bought vinyl material at $10 a metre - cheap enough for a few fails. In fact Ive got lots left over. Used all the orange but!! Its a bit of fun tbh.

    Its on a $1 auction, no bids yet. If anyone is interested they can pm me and we can do a deal. I think the courier charge when I bought it was around $20.

    Actually, that seat will fit any '02-'12 DL1000 as well as any '04-'12 DL-650.
    ABS or not...all the same!
