Nice looking wheels Mr Smith :)

I'm moving to Melbonia in 2 weeks... and will be looking for a pair of bikes like a Super Tenerés or Africa twins. Any words of wisdom about where I should start looking?

Any particular reccomendations of bike shops to go to/avoid?

Africa Twins are very hard to come by in Oz, never imported officially, there are only about 20 here !!!!

Thanks greg... I was beginning to suspect that... I've been searching the web for Aussie classifieds and wasn't finding jack-shit-nada.

Kinda odd really when you think about it, Aussie is such a natural place for adventure bikes. I'm surprised they were not big sellers...

These bikes pretty much just show up in the private classifieds, keep an eye on bike point and bike sales. Like Greg said ATs are very rare and STs only pop up now and then.
