I like to repurpose things, and I use what I have so I don't spend any money....but thanks. This isn't fastened into the muffler as yours is, hence the straps.

Appropo of nothing, my inspection is up in june (which is why I did the lights) so thats just a hint to myself make sure your passport and vehicle paperwork, insurance are all up to date a well.

I was told if you were to be pulled over without it. It would be an extra fine. But no one has ever asked for it.

Canadian Insurance

Snagged from http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_p.../cis_1082.html which is from the US State Department.

Highlighting is mine.

Quote:
Driving in Canada is similar to driving in many parts of the United States. Distances and speeds, however, are posted in kilometers per hour and some signs, particularly in Quebec, may only be in French. U.S. driver’s licenses are valid for visitors in Canada. Proof of auto insurance is required. U.S. auto insurance is accepted as long as an individual is a tourist in Canada. U.S. insurance firms will issue a Canadian insurance card, which should be obtained and carried prior to driving into Canada. For specific information concerning Canadian driving permits, mandatory insurance and entry regulations, please contact the Canadian National Tourist Organization.
I suspect the lack of a "Canadian Insurance Card" would only become an issue if you're a dink to the local constable who pulls you over and they are aware that they exist. Be advised, the Mounties horses are specially bred, you can not outrun them!

Something I would be more concerned about:

Quote:
Traveler’s medical insurance is highly recommended even for brief visits. No Canadian health care provider accepts U.S. domestic health insurance, and Medicare coverage does not extend outside the United States. Visitors who seek any medical attention in Canada should be prepared to pay cash in full at the time the service is rendered.
Also
Quote:
You can’t assume your insurance will go with you when you travel. It’s very important to find out BEFORE you leave whether or not your medical insurance will cover you overseas. You need to ask your insurance company two questions:
  • Does my policy apply when I’m out of the United States?
  • Will it cover emergencies like a trip to a foreign hospital or a medical evacuation?
In many places, doctors and hospitals still expect payment in cash at the time of service. Your regular U.S. health insurance may not cover doctors’ and hospital visits in other countries. If your policy doesn’t go with you when you travel, it’s a very good idea to take out another one for your trip. For more information, please see our medical insurance overseas page.
Otherwise, c'mon up, we have beer!

Ha. Yeah, but in most of the world healthcare is affordable enough that you don't need insurance.

Worst case scenarios down here cost a few thousand bucks. Broken bones will run you a few hundred.

My health doesn't but my Aflac does. Too bad I had to cancel due to lack of funds.

Valves adjusted....or not. All good in there. Sorted out my wiring issues, now I just need my new bars, put a banjo connector on the end of my brake line....I have the 2" long connector with various places to turn. Then fluids and tires and I'm set, well the bike will be set. Got the car sorted and the trailer all ready, just need to pick up my spare tire, then pack up the spares and I'm good. Sounds like a lot but really only 3 hours spread over 3 weeks. No biggie.

Looking good! Just packed my bags, need to mount a new front tire....I'll do that this weekend one night after work...I mounted the rear yesterday. I have to haul ass to Jason's on Wednesday and we cross the border for the check in on Thursday. Broke a turn signal lense, found one that kind of fit and siliconed it in....I'll probably break it on the trail anyway.!

Check you wheel bearing on the trailer before you go..it's a long trip, or you might install bearing buddies...or not. I see a spare valve cover back there..you planning on plowing with that valve cover??
