Me and my girlfriend are coming to New Zealand next week!
I allready have bike there (<Moto Guzzi NTX650 shipped it there a few years ago) but we are also looking for a bike for my girlfriend to ride on.
We are looking at something build in the nineties, something like the list below:
You would be lucky to get many of those models for $2000 or less in NZ as most of them are very sought after. If you are patient you may find an old KLR or Tengai for cheap, or maybe a Dominator but they are uncommon.
