    Bike Transport To Darwin

    Well my Hornet hasn't sold (yet) so maybe I'll take it to Darwin. I did want a bike up there anyway..

    Does anyone know how best to transport it? I spoke to Motorcycle Movers but they don't go there. Have also contacted ToyHaul via their PSB sponsorship but I don't think they'll do it either.

    Any suggestions most welcome. Full-priced freight is probably a bit expensive for me.

    Perth to Darwin ~4000km... decent 3 day ride.

    I know, but don't have the time for this leg. Maybe when I come back to Perth, could make a week of it.

    Keep your WA rego and address for as long as possible. +250 bikes are $850PA rego. Roadworthy inspection every year for +5yo bikes.

    Jeez, I looked that up and it's true! Strangely, up to 125cc is quite cheap, but I don't see bikes like CB125E for sale there.

    I don't intend to transfer my address and licence, and will still have vehicles registered in WA.

    Does that mean I would have trouble buying a bike to use in NT? It seems more or less impossible to own vehicles in more than one state/territory.

    Nah that's easy, Just buy it. Getting WA rego might be a problem without pits. I bought one up there and registered it as NT using my Perth address.

    The price is high because when they went to no fault insurance they decided that bike riders crash more so pay higher premiums.

    Yes it seems they are simply trying to discourage motorcycling. Bikes <250 are cheap to register though, <125 even less ($150/yr). The Honda dealer says the CB125 is popular as an alternative to the second car, and they're not available used purely because people are hanging on to them.

    When the NT Govt announced the bike rate there was a lot of backlash.
    They agreed to a public push to encourage small eco bikes via low rego.

    It can influence purchase eg a dr400 or wr250.

    130kph open speed limit does influence choice making rego cost moot.

    Interesting, thanks for the info. I'll make do with a little commuter - or no bike..

    The CB125 is on special at $2499 drive-away, the same as down here. So a good option in my opinion.
