Re: Trail bike in Spain - buy and take from UK or buy in Spain ?

I've done both since moving to Spain, brought a UK bike over and registered it on Spanish plates and bought a new bike here. The latter was much easier and because I timed it right I saved a fair bit of money compared to UK prices.

I'm really surprised about RAP Superbikes as I've had a bike off them and they always seemed decent enough. Shame really.

Re: Importing a bike from UK into Spain

I did both bikes myself (without a gestoria), and the zx10r cost €430 and the cagiva raptor 1000 cost €370. It takes 2 half days to do, hence why I need to sit down later and write it all out. Blimey that much better and certainly makes it worthwhile. Could you copy the process to me as well please...
