    I will be visiting Australia - Melbourne.

    Any suggestions where i could visit to buy bike accessories/ after market parts Melbourne Victoria.

    Several things i have in mind:
    1. Thermal wrap for exhuast
    2. PCIII
    3. Bagster tank bag

    I am also open to suggestions and would like to scout around to see if there is any part that i may wish to buy but do not have in mind as of now.

    Enjoy your time in Australia. I was lucky enough go there for work a few years back. I was in Sydney and traveled up the Gold Coast. I'd love to take the family there for vacation, but the flight from the west coast to Sydney is just unbearable - even in business class.

    I agree with all of the others, "buy at home, it will be cheaper." Come down and enjoy yourself. If you get a chance to head up the coast to the Hunter valley area i have a bike that you are welcome to borrow (02 V-Tec) and cruise the region on. If opportunity is there i would enjoy the chance to show you a few of the local roads.
