If you are buying the kit from within the EU, you will have to pay IVA/VAT. When exporting outside you don't. The US and Australia will not charge you any duties or taxes on personal imports either, within reasonable limits. Get it split up in 2-3 packages and you won't have a problem.

Back in Vegas; what a great weekend!

It was great camping and riding with so many like minded guys and Dakar legends.

I´ll be uploading details soon, hopefully some of the other n00bs on the rally school will be posting their experiences here too!

Rally training ...




Hey Neil,

Here's a pic of you and the new bike, with Scott [Hogwild] showing you the way to the Rally Dos Sertoes ... ha.

It was great meeting you and talking about your plans for August ... good luck to you and the gang ... I'll be cheering!

After riding all weekend on Darin's KTm 640 Adventure, then riding Jonah's KTM 525 rally bike in the dunes, and seeing Neil's WR450F I think I am gonna look for a deal on a WR. The 640 worked well but made its size known in a few areas. The 525 in contrast felt like a bmx bike and was a hoot to ride the little dunes on.

it cost me $500 CDN to ship mine from Ontario to California where Don picked it up and brought it to rally school. Now it's on it's way home via the same route.

Hey Neil, great weekend, really enjoyed meeting you. JB and I are getting ready to plot a trip to ride dunes with you in Peru. I'll post some pics when I finish uploading

Not quite right anything under $1000 AUD no taxes Exept cocaine some reason they want to charge you tax and prison time , they let a couple slide through if they notice that it should add up to more then $1000 aud you;ll get taxed on the total, but anyway back to bikes and racing

Great pic John! Thanks for taking the time to record stuff like this, I dont even remember you doing that!

Im busy sorting out some of my pics n vid´s. I got some nice video of the dunes as well. Eatpasta, what do you use to edit your videos?

Mike, are you going to post your stuff over here too? Would be great to have you guys out here in Peru to do some desert riding in the Atacama.

JMo, I like the black too, but its not painted yet. I think Im going to have the South African flag done on mine. Its a perfect shape for the bike and a cool-looking flag.

Seth S, Im stoked that youve decided to go the WR route as well. I htink if youre careful, you can do up this bike for a lot less than the average cost for a new rally bike.

Eatpasta, it actually cost me nothng, because Rally Panam (http://www.rallypanam.com) did my bike up for me and also organised the event. Charlie and Rob were fantastic, and I´d recommend them to anyone who wants someone else to build them a rally-ready bike.
