As a transplanted U.S. native, I feel ill every time I look at CL in the U.S. There is no economic justification for the difference in pricing between Canada and the U.S. An identical bike with comparable mileage is currently for sale in Squamish, just north of Vancouver. The asking price is $7,200.

I went to my local BMW/Husqvarna dealer here to look at the TR650 after reading about what a great value it is at $7,000. My local dealer has it for $8,000 + $800 freight and prep. And that's before the 12% HST. Out the door price for a new TR650 is $10,000.

There are advantages to living in Canada but they certainly aren't financial.

Sorry....rant over.
