Hi all
I'm Richards mate that is looking for a bike for my upcoming trip,to your country.
( and yes I did drown my 640 but I try to not make a habit of it)
If anyone knows of a 1000 Strom that would be suitable I would love to hear from you.

Would prefer something equipped with luggage and perhaps the odd practical modification.

The Aussie dollar is being smashed at the moment, so my budget is getting less by the day, but I am looking to spend 3-4k

Alternatively if anyone is contemplating a trip to Aus I have a fully set up 08 DL1000 that I would be interested in doing a bike swap with.
Can't wait to come and do some exploring in your country.

My wife and I fly into LA in early May, so something close to their would be ideal, plus a CA bike would meet the rules etc. is it really true that you can't ride a bike registered in another state in CA? That's bizarre.

Anyone any and all info appreciated.

If that is true, I break the law all the time. I ride my Washington State bike all over North America. The bikes sold in California may have lower exhaust emissions in order to be sold there, but there is no prohibition that I have heard of for other State licensed vehicles to ride there.

Thank you. I thought it sounded a bit bizarre. If anyone has a lead on a good bike I really would love to hear from you. And now not necessarily in CA. I am prepared to travel for the right bike.

Just bumping this up. Getting to the point where I am seriously looking now. Really would prefer a bike in LA region as I have a friend that will look and pick up for me.

Also would really like a bike set up with luggage and GPS etc.

Please let me know if you are thinking of selling.

Guy

Try:

SearchTempest: Search all of Craigslist nationwide & more

It is a craigslist search engine. Try putting in one of the LA zipcodes like 90015. I just checked it and found these:

2007 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 DL DL1000 vstrom vstorm v-storm 1000cc 650

2007 Suzuki DL1000 V-Strom 1000

2006 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 Gray 6-speed 996cc

If ride through central Oregon, send me an PM.
