Was it difficult/expensive to clear customs and register the motorcycle which you imported from the USA?

между прочим, я сам жил несколько лет в России в 90-х, и нередко думаю (мечтаю?) о райде в РФ. Не сможете вы рекомендовать какой-то мотофорум в рунете?
Thank you for estimation! I'm happy to take up the challenge)

In the end what's inside is also on the outside..

About customs clearance and registration : it's not a problem but not quite cheap. the whole system is one big cheat) But we have some true ways..
as an example, the cost of my XR was as follows :
Shipping to Finland Kotka 500$
Pick up from Finland Customs to Russia Saint-Petersburg customs , if you go on your own it'll cost about 300$, with the third person it's 500$
Customs Fee for Bike is 43% of average price, it was 1170$ so the fee was about 500$
Customs Broker paper work is about 500$
Registrations is not expensive about 50-70$ + 1 year Insurance for me is 100$

The Total was about 2000$, but sometimes we spend a lot of money on small things like fuel etc.
Lately it's been our bread - we are buying bikes from auctions , ebay or craigslist repairing it and selling here..

Я рад видеть Русскую речь) Всё же россия оставляет отпечатки)
Насчёт поездки думаю это прекрасная идея которая может принести немало опыта и возможности повидать прекрасные места)
Я сам давно на русских форумах не сижу, менталитет общей массы сильно разница с американской открытостью и отзывчевостью)
Но полазил по поиску и нашёл немного из более менее читаемого.

Всех Благ и С Рождеством! ДоБра Сердцам Нашим!
Destiny in Your Hands, Freedom in Our Hearts!
