Well the long wait is over. I picked up my new 2010 Goldwing in Mason City Iowa on Friday and rode the 1278 miles home. What an absolute dream come true. The weather was awesome for most of the ride and I really liked the signs on the interstates that said to look out for motorcycles!
Bringing it over the boarder was a breeze thanks to a link I got here on the forum. It told me exactly what to do and how to do it! Thanks Ron for the awsome web instructions. The only costs involved for me were the RIV fee ($225) and a provincial safety ($35.00) and of course the government hand out (13% HST) but the HST was on a cost about $7000 less than I could get here!
Friday the 13th here I come!

Bit of a coincidence, I just bought my 08' out of Mason City Iowa as well, and will soon be bringing it back to Canada. I'm in BC, so I opted to have mine delivered to the Seattle area. From there I'll be riding it back home, making it a bit of a holiday and a 600 Km. ride to my garage.

I've previously imported 2 other bikes, a Suzuki Intruder from El Paso TX, and an Indian Chief from Sacramento. I also imported an 04' Super Duty from Denver. All of these were very smooth and easy transactions. The key is being prepared and knowing what you need to do.

Enjoy!

Nice bike Pw. Question for you folk that have made cross border purchases: is the warranty transferrable from a US unit to an owner in Canada? The reason I ask is Polaris will NOT cover US distributed machines that go to Canada. They must be returned to a US dealer for any warranty claims. Not trying to scare anyone, just curious what you have been told about warranty coverage.

Nice ride! I'm also curious about something; Coming from the U.S. to Canada, the speedometer reads in miles, can that be changed? I do know that Honda Civics that are built here locally can be switched easily with the push of a button. So, is that a feature of the Goldwing?

PwKann, are the deals really all that good at that dealer?
Ya but yelovette, that would be a heck of fun ride all the way back to Vancouver from out there, zig zag through Colorado, Yellowstone, then up through Glacier and across to home... (sigh... so many fun roads, so little time...)
