    Not sure where to put this thread but here goes anyways. These two places are the closest USA entry points to me here in the great nw of Ont. I have had it with customs and brokers and postal services here so I was wondering if anyone knows of a business that will accept parcels and hold for pick up in either of these two cities. I have seen this mentioned in other threads from other parts of the country and I am hoping the same service is available somewhere in these parts. Any thoughts? Barring that, if anyone has some old used engine guards and maybe some Piaa light and mounts for a 02 1150GS, then just send them to me as a present.:D :D

    Look for a UPS store in the States and contact them by phone to see how long they will hold a parcel.

    A friend here in town has a "border box". in Int Falls. (He's in Dryden)

    I don't know exactly how it works, but I could ask him tomorrow night at work.
