Don't know if my reply will reach so, tell me if so
I'm living in Switzerland, near Basle. So if you have some questions (bike, switzerland in general) feel free to ask
Are you sure that you want to move the bike? Could imagine this will cost a few houndred dollars..
Maybe you could sell your Strom and get one here again, check http://www.motorradhandel.ch/occasio...vorf&form_vorj
. Most bike vendors put their bikes on this site. There are used ones and bikes that are almost new with a few thousand kilometers. You can multiply the prices with 0.95 to get the approximate price in dollars (or just get the most actual exchange rate.
This could be a more reasonable solution, espacially if you have to modify your bike according to swiss regulations.
The price-recommodation from Suzuki for a new DL 650 is arround 12'000$.
I'm not sure if you could keep your exhaust and the power commander on the bike, maybe you have put an silencer on the exhaust. If your german isn't too bad check http://www.stva.zh.ch
, this is the homepage of the administration for motorvehicles (cars, bikes, trucks, etc) in Zurich or directly write to Suzuki agencies (http://www.suzuki-motorcycles.ch/de/...er/kantone/ZH/
), usually they can help you much easier than the pencil pushers in the administration (STVA)..
If you don't speak german (well enough), just tell me, and I'll see what I can find out for you..
Why do you want to leave the states? And why especially would you like to come to switzerland?
As I said, feel free to ask questions about everything you're intrested in, I will help as good as I can
edit: just noticed that you drive a DL 1000, so check this then instead of the link above: http://www.motorradhandel.ch/occasio...vorf&form_vorj
