Hi, As I was pondering.. and pondering (I tend to ponder a lot) I started realizing that people "do" seem to import bikes from around... mostly japan I guess... "grey market" bikes some people call em I think.
I had a couple question about them... maybe some of you gots some answers.
1) I've seen them around, buy/sell etc.. what's your general thoughts on buying one of those... ie. "stay far away" "go for it, you'll be unique" "repair is a pain in the buttock" etc..
2) If someone were to actually import one themselves, say a 399cc CBR or something... how would you go about insuring it... Is it easy, or do you have to do some.. "tooling" or.. register it under a different bike? I guess that applies also to an already brought over here grey market bike
3) out of all of them, what would you choose? ie, FZR400, NSR250, CBR400RR, ZXR400, RGV 250, etc..
I guess I only showed low cc bikes but I figure cuz they're the bikes you wouldn't find around here in show rooms and they're in the lower insurance bracket. I'd prolly pick the CBR400RR
