    Yes it is. It gets around a whole heap of issues involving rego, but it can never be licensed.

        Ask ApatheticEnd, he brought his Canadian bike over. Even a racebike is supposed to have ADR compliance plates, at least for Superbike/Supersport/Superstock classes.

            + Do your sums carefully. It sounds cheap but by the time you add freight/handling and any import charges/customs charges then get all the bits to go racing you might not be that much better off.
            Josh (Apatheticend) may have some info as well as Jules_1972 as he has just gone through the process.

              I can help if you want but if you are already in Oz and it's not made of unobtanium (like jules' 999R) than I wouldn't bother. It's piss easy if you are bringing your own bike with you when you move but there are a lot more hoops to jump through to get a bike here (and no chance at all if you want to road rego it unless it's a bike you can't get here or isn't collectable).

              And 6.5K for a racebike is quite high for the US unless it's superbike built. Even if you can get a permit (unlikely) than you'll be in for about $2K to ship, 10% GST, and about another $1k in local fees to get it off the dock, inspected, and to your door.

              Check out DOTARS website and call the guys in the office over east. They are good to deal with and won't give you some gov't runaround bullshit. If you can get a permit, I can help you with the pitfalls and phone numbers type stuff.

              As for compliance, by the letter of MA law (fucking BS, don't get me started) a big has to be complianced to race in anyhting other than clubman. Before I brought my bike I emailed the club and they said they would allow it to pass, but really, if someone wanted to be a cunt they could lodge a protest (looks around for HostileMonk).

              Buy a prepped racebike here. It'll save you some headaches.

                  Go ahead. I'm pretty sure there is a rule somewhere that using a stepstool to get on your bike isn't superstock legal you ol' bastard.

                  Just kidding old balls. You are an inspiration....... or is that irratation?

                          Don't let them get to you HM they are all just jealous of us more senior & superior racers. We'll see how fast they are when they are sporting the latest in Joe rocket colostomy bags and Shoei Bi-Focal visors.
                          I'm with you on the Canadian thing, you can be damn sure he never answered any of the Citizenship questions!!
