Rego is relatively the same cost for most bikes, in fact i think my GSXR1000 is around the same as the 450 mentioned previously. And yes, rego includes third party insurance, but if would i hell rely on that for insurance. Fully comp on my bike is less than $500 for a year, bloody cheap peace of mind for a bike like that if you ask me. And as for dual compound tyres, depends what roads and trips you will be riding. Personally i don't like the feel of them, i have pirelli diablo corsa 3's on my bike, nice and soft and sticky. If i do a long trip on straight roads (which i avoid at all costs if i can) and and squaring occurs, i can guarentee and few hours in the hills, and a couple of laps of the eagle, and my tyres are back in good shape. Also be aware that the bitumen on roads here is a lot more aggressive on tyres than the tarmac back in uk. Not meaning to sound pedantic, but running the bike forum allows you to be able to open up to lots more advice, so get on and ask. Someone there will know the answers.
Anything else, just ask, and i will try to find out answers for you.
Now most importantly, i'm in Africa working right now, but get back to glorious South Oz on 7th August, so who's up for some fun in the playground we like to call Adelaide hills? Chain of ponds, Gorge, Lobie, Strath, Down through Goolwa to Victor? Via old Willunga Hill? lol
Here's my pride and joy...my Triumph T595 Daytona 955i
