I don't know where I'll cross, but somewhere east of the Lakes, probably NY. If they ask, "What are you carrying for protection," I'll tell him, Nothing, I'm married.

Canadian border crossing question

I plan to ride up into Canada in about a week on my KTM 950 Adventure. Will I encounter any problems at the border, or anywhere else, with my Akrapovic exhaust?

Thanks
