About the only I said in this entire process of getting the bike to anyone other than my importer, was to the top investigator looking into the bike was: "Am I gonna be able to get from the port?" He replied "Yes, you have many friends here"... The next day or so, I had the bike. BUT have the bike cleared for importing BEFORE it lands to avoid any of this delay ... My importer just drug their feet too much as the 30 days shipping time from the USA to here is plenty of time to have all the paperwork finished ...
Yes sir. So many things to consider and do = lots of headache....
