Is it worth it..

Buying a bike in the states and crossing the border with it. How does that work, has anyone done it ? What is the process. Is it worth the hassle.. Can anyone comment if they have any experience.. I know bikes in the states are a lot cheaper.

My brother bought his Honda Hornet in Arizona, he lives in canada lol. I know you have to pay the tax on the bike once it crosses over or something.. Even still, the lower prices of the US make it well worth it.

Yea but aren't there different emission standards?

Plus Canadian made bikes can ride on the snow with their special moose tires

Lool. Special moose tires. What are you smoking man.. But that's funny I give you that. No I know that emissions are not an issue. I am just trying to see if I can save some money.. That's all. And my impressions so far is that I can. Everything in Canada is more expensive.

Oh I know it is. I used to have a 350z and have friends in Canada and they always complain about prices compared to down here.

Its definitely a good time to look because people are selling because the weather is cold.

Make sure you crunch the numbers. Most likely the bike will be cheaper from the USA
