Transport

Any ideas on inport transport, I was considering stowing a small moped (scooter) or somthing like that as invariably the best marinas in OZ are far from towns and lack public transport.shane

One of the problems with carrying a moped (etc) might be motor vehicle licencing in foreign countries.

Some jurisdictions may classify mopeds as motor vehicles, and others may class them as (motor assisted) bicycles.

Check the licensure requirements along your intended routes.

Regards,
Gord

Where do you put your stuff? It's got a motor on the parcel tray.

We have a basket on the front and generally travel with back packs.. Used more for exploring/bar jumping/wandering out for meals. The keys are pretty spread out and scooters with touriss are the norm.
