    I have not seen any for sale in my last few months of looking but had heard there were a couple in Alberta. If anyone hears of one for sale I would love to know about it.

    Windbell in North Vancouver had one a few months ago when I was there. They're a grey market importer, they'll bring you one in if you want it on their next container load.

    They also had a pretty nice TDR250 last time I was in......

    The new Transalp is a joke, took a peek at one in Edmonton about as interesting as the Veredaro, but some like that stuff

    well, i guess there isn't enough of us in canada to have a CANADIAN AFRICA TWIN MEET. I WAS REALLY HOPING THAT SOME OF THE OTHER OWNERS WOULD CHIME IN HERE .

    i knew about those two. they are the ones that belong to a german gentleman and his wife right?? one has a lot of klms on it??? a friend of mine who lives in Edmonton knows him and we actually called him from the bar around christmas time to see if he wanted to sell them ( or one) . he does not or at least he didn't then. there is one in calgary as well.

    TERRY, STILL TAKING THE VARADERO ACROSS THE COUNTRY THIS YEAR??? i think you wanted to do it last year but honda did not release the bike on time for you to do it??

    Lovely bike,
    I've got this wonderful idea why not make it an Africa twin - Super Tenere meet, comparable Dakar replica bikes from the same era and probably both as rare in Canada, i've never seen either.

    So are Africa Twins legal in Canada? without having to do a whole lot of extra inspections and work?

    I have one in Greece I really want to bring over (and take into the states actually) but have heard its very difficult.
