I guess we got to pay extorsion shipping prices to get them out of canada if we want them.

And I don't think its going to save you any money to put a shipping location in USA, you still have to carry them across the border from Canada to USA and that giant sucking sound you hear at the border is called NAFTA.
Mitas US sells agricultural tires and care nothing for the motorcycle market.

I went a long way towards getting the US distributorship last year.
Found a building to rent, passed dozens of emails back and forth to the company, had the money for my first shipment and was waiting for them to tell me where to send funds.

I had quite a few hours in this, only to have them announce that they had a west coast distributor now.
That never happened either.
I wish anyone who tries to sell these tires in the US a lot of luck. Great product, shitty business practices.
