Yikes!

Here's another angle: what's the likelihood of finding an expat buyer? Say, a military type that's posted there. This is based on the assumption that an expat wouldn't have to pay those duties...

To legally ride the bike in Mexico, an expat needs one of the following:

1) If he has a temporal visa or FMM he will need to take the bike to the border to cancel your TVIP and then he would need the registration in his name to obtain a new TVIP (good for 6 mos).

2) If he has a permanente visa, then he would need to have the bike registered in his name and he then goes to Aduana to apply to nationalize the bike and get plates in his state of residency in Mexico. This is the situation I am in.

My TVIP on the XRR expired 4 years ago but I did some legal footwork to keep the XRR legal in Mexico. However, when I converted to permanente status, the govt canceled my TVIP permanently. So now my XRR is illegal. If I am stopped, then my bike may be seized by the govt and I will not get it back.

I know one guy who may have interest, but it will be a wholesale deal as he is a dealer.

2007, and yes. She actually work in the aduana for 18 years but left to start her own thing. I also had a friend who worked in the office to help push it through. So for being a chele, that was the best I could do.

so they did what they have been doing for several years now--charging you based on the book value of the vehicle, as opposed to what you paid for it. sucks, but there's not a damn thing you can do about it.
