    Aaaahhhhh, so you did, I missed that. From what I've heard you should be happy with it. Also explains why there are no dealers over there, they are pretty thin on the ground anywhere, like their SWM cousins.

    Can you get it registered at Eucla? Maybe the cops can do it there.

    Buying interstate.... the gift that keeps on giving.

    Now l need to research an SVC code (Standard Vehicle Code) which the PR7 does not have in WA which is used for bulk licencing, 7 numbers/digits.
    Without that l can't register. If l was going through a dealer here it would be easy, but there's none. There is a PR3 registered over here so that may help.
    Off to the licencing office it is then.

    Have you considered a DR? Much better bike and easier to register.

    Turns out the vehicle inspection place can issue an SVC which really does count out riding.

    Are you really sure you don't want to keep the Trumpy? It's a bloody good bike.

    Do you mean keep the Trumpy AND get the PR7?
    Of course!
    Well see what happens when/if the Trumpy sells.

    I haven't had time to read all of the posts here. My experience was last year I bought a bike in Darwin, unreg, to ride to Vic. Checked out permits and NSW was the the best value, and could get it for more than a week. The Vic and NT permits were expensive and from memory only available for 48 hrs and 7 days ( I wanted to enjoy my ride home). The only catch with the NSW permits was that you had to go to one of there service offices to apply for and pay for the permit, at the time you couldn't do it on line. FWIW I found it good value.

    Stop looking at this as a problem to be solved - it's an opportunity.

    Buy the bike in vic, fly over and ride the high country enough to get the first service done. Then find a freindly adv person who'd be perfectly happy to fondle, sorry, look after your bike until you fly back. I think you get 3 months before they expect you to transfer it to a home adress, but after tasting the high country my bet is you'll join the rest of the fifo workers who live in heaven but work in hell.

    No you can't borrow it.
    That's how l read you post anyway.

    Having trouble figuring out the SVC number.
    Standard Vehicle Code... and who issues one. WA Dept Transport say it's the vehicle inspectors, vehicle inspectors say dunno, a mc dealer says not sure.
    SVC describes the vehicle. ie" mc solo, trailer box, trailer flat car carrying, ute tray back, ute tub back.

    Cos l don't want to get home and then figure it out.
    I'll be calling transport head office tomorrow. Just need to speak to the right person.
    I wont be buying a PR7 for another 6 months yet.

    Update... An SVC number is required on the dealers Bulk Licencing form (E117) but not the basic register it yourself form (VL17), even if it's a new vehicle. And.... the bulk licencing form asks for colour of the vehicle while the do it yourself form does not. Govt Departments. Go figure.

    Update 22/6 . Finally got the correct info from a switched on Dept Transport chick.
    Fuck the SVC code unless l get my dealer mate to reg in WA and l take the plates over.
