Sorry Van freaks! I spent 18 months in England where I bought the Bongo as a 'grey' import from Japan. They were never supposed to leave Japan. Mine came out of a Japanese junk yard. There's quite a cult following in the UK as they are right-hand-drive vehicles. Certainly not found in Colorado! I had to pay extra to do all the import and certification paperwork to make it legal in the UK.

The Africa Twin was a legal UK (from Japan) import but the CRM was another grey market import......both of which found their way to my garage in Colorado.

I've started to see my problem.....none of my bikes can be legally imported into the US.... most of my other stuff is one-off or home-built too. Maybe I have a problem.....
