Importing a R1200RT to Canada
Dilemma: Up here in Canada, used R1200RT's command a hefty price tag. I like the idea of saving a tidy sum of $ and getting a used 1200 from a US Beemer dealer. With our Cdn $ flirting with at par, it could prove to be the deal clincher. Some had mentioned MAX BMW. They also sell on Ebay I see. Good to deal with? Any other Beemer dealers that are worth consideration? I bought a jacket from the Grassroots BMW dealer in Missouri. Nice folks, friendly and honest. Is there a best model year to buy a R1200RT?
Any forum members knowledable in importing a bike to Canada? All I know is that BMW Canada levies a $500 fee to register a US bike here in Canada. Would any residual warranty be valid here? Feel free to PM me.
