comment Getting between Melbourne's Tullamarine and Avalon airports?
Good research in this answer. The OP should note that you'll need a myki card to travel on the PTV network, which should be obtainable at the Lara station, but the machines do break down frequently so you may like to order one online in advance.

@pnuts Thanks. I've expanded my answer with information from the DIBP related to regulations regarding non-Australians who are transiting Australia.

Okay, I'm assuming he's not Australian or New Zealander. All other nationalities require a visa in advance to enter the commonwealth.

comment Can an American (USA citizen) visit Cuba and make a videodocument and put it on Youtube or sell to PBS etc.?
Video documentarian Michael Moore visited and filmed in Cuba for his film Sicko (comparing Cuba's universal health care system to the US' privatised user-pays model). I suggest this would be a good place to begin your inquiry.

comment Travel to Cuba as Dual Citizen (Dutch born-Dutch/US Citizen)
Illegal from who's perspective? It's not illegal from Cuba's point of view if they allow you into the country. From the US point of view, it is illegal if you spend any money there, however extra-territorial laws are an area of controversy since you would be breaking the law while outside the US' jurisdiction. Either way, I would suggest entering Cuba on your Dutch passport.

comment Motorcycle tour of Sweden and Norway
Thanks Joe. We're travelling from Australia so we don't have the luxury of popping over to the Scandinavia whenever we want. This means we need to pack it in a bit. So far I've been quoted SEK 11,900 for the rental, plus SEK 1 per km, for an ST1100 with panniers. We're budgeting on around 4,000 kms for the total trip, so the total rental cost looks around SEK 15,900, or approximately $2,400 in our money, about the same as the cost of the flight to get there in the first place. Then of course fuel, food and accommodation.

Thanks for the responses. I was only asking about the cost of renting the motorbikes, which will be the single biggest expense of this trip.
