Hey, I have a question for y'all. If someone buys a bike from me will they have trouble traveling through Canada on their way back to Michigan?

Are the tires full of cocaine?

I assume that they will be towing/carrying the bike, not riding it. A proper bill of sale (notarized would be best) and copies of your current NYS registration and insurance cards (just to establish past legality, not to allow operation of the bike) would probably be smart. There has been chatter on the RV forums about Canadians being hassled when they bring in a used RV, because the government doesn't want anyone doing an end run around the Canadian taxes. Probably would not be such an issue with a Yank.

I've done the reverse, and had no problems at all.

Just make sure he has all the paperwork (title, bill of sale, etc.) to show to the customs people. Canadian border patrol didn't care, but US did.

Hey Aaron, you got a 500? Damn, I got mine in August… it was nice to be the special guy in VT for a while I’ve done 1500 miles so far, in the VT ST to the NJ sand washes. I LOVE this bike. I had to sort of relearn how to ride, coming off of an older 300.
Anyway, I’m running out of places to ride over in my neck of the woods, near Montpelier. I’d love to ride with another 500 sometime…
Did you get an XCW? I got the EXC. If you don’t have a 6X yet, it’s $$ well spent.
BTW, it’s been a while but we road together at the last Main CroMag.

Hey Leo! Wow, been a long time! I bought an XCW and I love it, amazing motorcycle. I plan on riding with a friend that also has a 500 in your neck of the woods next weekend. Single track, logging roads and some quad trail.

Do you have a set of studded tires?

Don't believe those naysayers who claim that a sidewall tear can't be repaired.................

Studs? What are they?

What do you recommend?

Picking up 750 Gold Screws on Wednesday… good enough?
The way the weather is going, mud tires may be more appropriate for a while…

Gold screws work but don't expect them to stay long with the 500 Gorilla glue works to hold them in but learn to not spin the tire when possible.
