Gee, Maybe I'm "special". I crossed into B.C. last year on my Yamaha that had melted the selinoid earlier that morning.I had to hold the hot cables together to work the starter, so when I got to the Border agent she sked me to shut it off. I explained that I'd rather not.
She asked a few questions over the sound of the motor the said I'd have to talk to another guy. Why ? , I asked. She said my plans were unusual.The other guy came over and I told him what I'd told her and asked if he knew any motorcycle shops nearby. He lightened up let me in and gave me directions to a shop. I'm in.
5 days later I rolled up to the border with the U.S. into Idaho. I kept the bike running this time as well , was asked to shut it off, explained I'd rather not and why. I was processed through quickly and warned about the deer in the road. Welcome home .
The difference was that both the Canadian and the U.S. agents I talked with were riders.
