Eurotripping on a Strom - Ship or Buy?
Hello, all. I am new to the forum and new to the V-strom, but I want one.
My buddy here where I live in Seoul, South Korea just got a DL1000, and I think it would be perfect for my upcoming trip. See, my wife and I are planning to come over in May 2009 for a 6 month motorcycle tour of Europe. We are planning to go all over, and see as much as we can of the Continent.
I'm trying to sort out whether it would be better to buy a bike here and ship it over, or try to buy one over there somewhere...
A decent used DL1000 goes for the equivalent of about 5,000-6,000 Euros over here right now, and I think I could ship it for another 800-1,000 Euros. What is the going rate there, and where would be the best place to pick one up, in your opinions?
Any insights you could offer would be greatly appreciated!
