    well, i finally decided on a set of pipes for the thruxton from this mob in
    kiwi land

    at $828 they were reasonable price - cool

    alas when i went to pick them up from oz post , i had to cough up another
    $82.80 gst , before they would release them.

    bugger n poop , bloody customs :)

    but they sound n look ever so nice, no more air compressor :)

    oh and thanks to el davo and helping me fit them*


    *actually he did most of the work , i just supervised :)

  2. I take it you made sure the Kiwis deducted their version of the GST
    (VAT) before charging/shipping?

    Otherwise you were whacked twice by the "men in black" :-/

    Don't do it

    Up the Old Road the other week and we heard a cruiser that someone must have
    done that to. It sounded disgusting.

    Sorry I thought you said that you picked them up from Australia Post and
    paid the GST at the Post Office.
