Not this time but if your around in December i'll hook up with ya. I might be coming home for my bro's wedding early January so i'm thinking i'll make a holiday out of it and spend a month. And probably a kidney.

OK...have done the sums and I don't want to waste time goin to Sydney.....

So it looks like we'll buy the bike and ship it up to me and use the money I would have spent on airfares and accom on the bike....

A far more sensible use of resources in my opinion......

Will get down to Sydney with my bike when i'm ready to race......... I prefer to ride than sit in the passenger seat...

Stevo..........are there not many S models up your way?.........or are they cheaper in Sydney?..............

Clean S models tend to go for around the 10.......11 $$ in Vic...........

can't find any up here...........there's a couple at rollies but he wants 14.....

Blacktown HD has a couple...a '98 and an '01...... the '98 has 20,000 and the '01 has 53,000 with a full service history...so I'd say the '01 has been used like a bike should be...


Am lookin at the '01 as from '00 on they had the better brakes....


'00 - '03 S models are the best sporties built.........but they don't hold their value...mine cost me over 17 new..... owes me over twice that now


there's a couple down your way around the 11 mark


If you can find an '00 > S then let us know

G'day Stevo,

Always keen to meet up with HD owners...especially those who have mechanical skills

Know now that you bought the bike on ebay and will not be com'in to Sydney. BUT when you plan to make sure you let us know. I'm with a small HD group that has a dinner every Friday night. It'd be great if you could join us. Ezycruzers is the group.

Please remember to keep in my mind re your customers walla and the other ones you mentioned

See ya soon hopefully....Dave.

Been to Sydney. Great city. I remember the Opera House the most, but how could you forget? Any time there's a show with anything about Australia they show the Opera House.

I actually remember more about Perth.
