Pissed New Adventure Across Boarder? Not Allowed.

My buddy and I just bought a couple of the last 640A from a U.S. dealer. We made it clear their purpose of being is to leave the U.S. We both financed through the KTM dealer, underwritted by GE Money.
When checking Mexico vehicle importation requirements we learned that a lienholder must provide a notarized letter of acknowledgement that the bike will be in Mexico. Surprise, at every level we got fuck you from GE. Seems they require 6 months payment history. We were supposed to leave yesterday. So we are paying off the bikes in full, but then GE wants 10 business days to release the lean and still won't give us the letter. Our bikes our registered in Montana because it's better there but we are in CO right now. So we have to take the release up there and get new registration. Anyone experience this? Any legit or otherwise ideas? Never finance anything!

Most people just use the State registration paper, not the title.

Question Insurance

Is there an insurance issue? Can't think of a reason they wouldn't be cool if the bikes are insured? Your full coverage works in Mexico? Si?

Do you have anyone who can get the registration and FedEx the titles to you near the border? Who is getting your mail for you?

Seriously doubt it, Mexico usually requires seperate insurance, but regardless it's still up to the lien holders discretion.

Beta...do you have access to a colour printer?
