the perfect adv bike is a bit of a myth...it's a bit like shoes: you can play football in trainers and you can run around in football boots, but if you're committed to one particular sport, you need the proper footwear.

😁The prototype of polivalence is the duck. It flies, it swims and it runs!...but does everything bad!
The bikes are the same.

Yes, the Honda is definitely not as well made as the BMW, though that doesn't necessarily mean it is less reliable or less value for money. I'm usually very good at looking after bikes (no winter use and things like ACF50) so I don't tend to see much in the way of rust.

Although I accept the F700 or F800 would probably be a better bike for me (and I could the 2019 X and RR kit will cost me more), there is something about the X that I really like and I've always been a Honda fan. I like the idea of an RR CBX because it is something different to the usual AT's and GS's. Maybe I'll be seduced by an AT or GS when I get the RR bike out of my system though!!

Official guidence from the DVLA says:

If you bought a vehicle in the UK but do not have a UK address

You need to:

  • take the full vehicle log book (V5C) from the seller (not just the new keeper slip)
  • send the permanent export section to DVLA
  • find out how to register the vehicle in the country youre taking it to

Thanks.
Still have an insurance issue. My insurance company (other here will work similar) doesn't accept a foreign licence number.
Must find one in uk that accepts a foreign customer.

You won't find one because UK law says you must have a permanent UK address to obtain any form of motoring insurance.

This is why exported vehicles are mainly transported on trailers when they leave the country.

I've previously used a company called Shiply which transport items around the country. There are companies on there that ship motorcycles, so maybe worth a look. I used them you transport a classic car from London to Scotland on a big transporter and it cost me 150. There's probably other companies out there as well who specialise in this sort of thing.

Something like that might be an idea and would probably be the same sort of cost.

What a pity.
The return trip was half of the fun. 
Crossing biscay gulf on a ferry to Santander, then through Asturias and mountains "picos da Europa" (what a beautiful country) to north Portugal.

Well, still considering it, but must go before brexit.

Thanks for your help.
