Ciao Africa 18
Benvenuto, Welcome to Australia, As I work in the industry maybe I can help? The shops you list are all good dealers, I find that it is the Salesman that counts. Just like buying anything NEW in this world, if you quickly develop a friendship with one salesman then you will most likely buy from them, because buying NEW once you have decided on a particular model you cannot compare the quality of the bike unlike buying a second hand / used bike, you can only compare Dealership and Salesperson and this is always a different experience for each person. So my advice is please visit all the Dealerships and hopefully you develop a good relationship with one or more of them. Please remember that as in most parts of the world most people that work in Motorcycle Dealerships are enthusiastic motorcycle riders themselves, even here in Australia and they will be very happy to help you.
You should also ask and expect discount for as you say "without barter" we say "no trade in" deal. Because the CRF1000L supply is slow and the demand is high maybe the discount won't be so good. All these shops carry a good range of accessories and clothing, some more than others and if they don't have it in stock it will only take a day or two for them to order it for you. Don't worry just like Italians we Aussies love a good deal and if you buy all your clothing at the same time you buy your bike than I'm sure the dealer will look after you if you ask nicely.
