if I had the cash!!! I would order the CBR125R that we don't get here, and the only down side is I would take it in Tijuana and then you could just frly from San Diego to CR!

And I will do the rest to make it legal here...

Good luck on this one!

Yeap that is correct, don't know how you would go if you have someone legally sign the bike/car over to you (See Craig)

Yeap though the hoops again, could be because we are Kiwi or maybe because we are on a B2 VISA or possibly that we had already spent 6 months in the USA then came back again.

So yeah not sure if this is a normal happening thing or just what happened to us but hopefully useful for somene.
