anyone bought a bike from states?
I would like to know what sort of paper work was involved? taxes? fees? inspections? registrations? any info would help.
check the GVRD's import vechicle website. It is not as hard as most people think. Most models are allowed to come in. That's is no duty for most bike but you will have to pay the tax.
I can't seem to find it......do you have the link? Thanx!

i just recently imported my f4i to canada cause you need a bc registration to insure.
heres the deal. manufactured in US or CANno duty.
you pay gst on the CAN equivalent of the bikes current value.
you have to go to Canada customs (theres one at 333 dunsmuir) to get a "Form 1" filled out by a customs agent.
wait 7-10 days for Form 2 in the mail, then get bike inspected.
then you get some stickers of some sort to attach to bike and you insure the bike.
you pay the pst on the CAN equivalent of the bikes current value when you insure it.
i should have just pasted this link in the first place!!!!
is it really that much cheaper to import a bike over from the states?
i always thought it would be cheaper for the ppl over there to come over here and buy stuff
