How are you planning to arrange ownership docs?
I imagine I will have to sort the docs out when I'm over there next year.

I wouldn't mind collecting it in Figeac if the guy is willing to store it for me until next year but I'm not counting on that. Belgium is the only place I know I can securely store it (family, friends).

Anyone dealt with this before? How'd you do it?
Me and a friend of mine have used Shiply to get our bikes from France and Belgium to Italy, cheap and no issues :)

En Vendée mais je think that Gian et Wayne have a meilleure idée. Besides, ma soeur n'est pas capable de flatfoot le AT.

Does it hurt your brain to read Frenglish as much as it hurt me to write it?

Jim, I think Frenglish is the language we are most fluent in.

Jim,

How's things in the black forest? Ready for winter?

Got the MUD tires on the truck yet?


J, it would seem that there are still quite a few ATs for sale on the continent....even though the prices appear higher than 5 years ago. Greece also seems to have quite a selection and would likely also have folks that would welcome a sale......I'd just be patient until you get there.

Make sure to get a RD04 or RD03, then ship it back in bits, keep your TA frame and add all the AT pieces to it to keep the same USA reg.

We broke ground last Friday. The hole is dug out. The forms are going in today and the footers poured this afternoon. The foundation and garage slab on Friday. Yeah, I'd say things are moving along. I think we're in the lead for our immediate neighborhood. But who's keeping track?

Ready for winter too. We bought some coats.

No need for mud tires, I still have most of my paved driveway. Anyway, they're too noisy.

My AT is back together. I had to fab a new dummy light panel with LEDs. I put K60s front and back on manually. What a rude awakening that was after years of tire machines and balancers.

Glad things are moving along at a reasonable pace.

The K60s will certainly challenge your tire mounting technique. What sizes did you use?

Hope that something will spring out of the foundations soon and that the first snow is at least 2 months away.

90/90-21 up front and 140/80-18 rear.

Hope so too. There is a heater in the trailer. We're quite uptown. Electricity, running water, A/C, heat and a port-a-potty. To dream of a flushing toilet...

This kind of experience certainly resets your priorities and expectations.

Hoping permanent electricity and plumbing is in the not-to-distant future.

This is true. Although maybe I could get my little hands on a couple of these and bring them all over...

I was thinking an RD03 should be easier to register since its now 25 years old, no?

Let me know if you have trouble getting them titled. All are doable but 17 digit VINs are much easier.

Thanks Jim

CO is still the easiest place to do it?

Any state really... Oh you mean get a title. Yeah, pretty easy. Unless politicians imposed more red tape.

The whole point of keeping the TA frame (which is essentially identical with the exception of a few minor brackets) is to NOT have to re-register anything thereby eliminating all those fees, queues, and almost irresistible need to shout at someone.
