kind of sorted...
It's all cool, at least with canadian customs. The guy at the warehouse was a *!@! and we left a couple of heavy dollar bills there. But as far as rules and regulations go, we're pretty cool now. Nobody asked us for the insurance, but we'll try to get one as soon as possible.
The carnet de passage is not necessary actually, they just asked if we intended to sell the bike. "No." "Ok then". I just loved it!
But now, I need to:
- make a declaration of loss for the french automobile club to get the deposit back
- fix the clutch, which is very, very, very dead...
Thanks for the help I got on this forum to chill out a bit regarding custom clearance, and for the extremely valuable informations!
