Buy Bike in Europe for AfrikaTrip
Guys and Gals,
I'm planning a transafrika trip from Urope to SAfrika. Rather than buy a Dutch registered bike and ride down (and perhaps end up leaving it in RSA and then have to re-register) I was thinking of taking delivery in Europe but with RSA registration.
I have been living in Netherlands and am resident here (UK citizenship) but also have SAfrikan citizenship.
Dutch registered bikes are quite pricey wrt other European registered bikes and anyway I'd rather ride South with a GP plate than an NL one (sorry you Kapies, I'm a Vaalie at heart).
My plan is to approach a Safrikan BMW dealer and buy thru them but take delivery in Europe: the head of BMW Motorrad is a South Afrikan so should help.
But maybe you guys have other ideas.
I've still got my RSA licence (as well as Dutch). And would likely travel on my RSA passport anyway thru most African countries: better for visas.
