Wow. My brain is going to start melting. WTF was that? drinking this early in the day? Um no, Im pretty sure we dont think were better then you guys, especially considering Ive yet to encounter anyone that has earnestly thought that.kadena.. wtf?.. watt happened to NAFTA?..

Kadena is in its own world.. they are the biggest pain in the azz to get stuff in or out of that country.. I dont understand what the problem is.. I think they have decided they are seperate/better than USA and want to be part of Europe.. thats my take on having to deal with.. particularily Quebec.. but Ontario fares no better.. Most Vancouver stuff,, they'r smart..er.. have Seattle area warehouses.. they take care of xing the border..
I think we should have finished the job when we kicked GB off the continent. it mite not be too late, S.Park did an expose on the subject.. dont get me started, mehico is on my radar too. ponchout
gm, you just did. I have been doing this business for 40 years. Working with Canadian companies are the most frustrating. I order instruments from Honeywell Analytic/Vulcain industries, Neptronic, Ecobee and host of other electronic devices that are mfg or sourced thru Qb/Ont/Bc.. everything takes 2 weeks more than standard US/mehico shipment to clear customs. Warranty returns? forget about it. its cheaper for me to Toss it in the trash and eat it than to fill out all the customs documents and shipping fees. It is unfortunate, but my experiences in dealing with Canada have not been that rosey. perhaps mine are the exception. I doubt it. when searching for solutions to problems and come across Canadian sourced, I will try to find another solution. its just that bad..Wow. My brain is going to start melting.

Oh really? Jeez, is it the F1200R for a 900? (such as this one)Thanks Graham, I am selling a Cobra FI powerpro, on Ebay, and I had a gentleman ask if I could ship to Canada. I didn't think it would be a big deal, but wasn't sure
It's for the 1700's, I did read for international shipping, it would take anywhere from 11 to 23 days. Didn't have a price cost for it.Poncho, you're a great guy, absolutely. I was just surprised to see you go off like that over such a simple question. I didn't know about the shipping woes you've encountered, I very much apologize for your troubles in terms of that. Oddly enough, Ive yet to hear that from anybody, but its interesting to see how it is from your end. Thats all, I hope you didn't take that offensively...
Oh really? Jeez, is it the F1200R for a 900? If so, Id be interested in buying that off you as well.
All in all, I believe to ship something of that size, can be done for under $20-30, as it would be quite a small box.
gm, now why would i do that? Everybody has both experiences and from those experiences, derived opinions about every subject matter under heaven.. A questions was asked, and I answered it from my extensive business experiences.. nobody made any Personal derogatory comments or statements.. not you nor I.. that is usually where discussions go off track. Somebody either takes a remark personally where it is not intended, or somebody actually makes a derogatory comment about another person.. I wrote that "shipping" to/from Canada was a pain in the azz because canadian customs is a Bottle Neck.. that is not a defametory statement toward either Canada or its people. Canadian customs could use a bit of Nafta upgrading.. Mehico has no problems,, moving material, guns, drugs and illegals.. why should Canada?.. oh, thats rite, they'r Sovereign.. we gave up that status yrs ago, six to be exact.I hope you didn't take that offensively...
cork'ed.. your sig pic says it all. ida'hoser.. you forgit that I was born n raised by can'ukers and happen to be French/Canadian by heritage,, theyr like our retarded couzins, fambly, mite well love em cuz yor stuk with em. ponchoseriously? i live in CANADA at the border. go across to Idaho, pick up and/or ship items with no paperwork or hassle whatsoever. order online(yes we have the internet) and never have a problem. Ridiculous post by Poncho, obviously drunk and not well informed. Take it back or face the wrath of Canada. Which really only amounts to getting you drunk and leaving you outside. Actually, thats not funny... to us. And that is all I have to say about that.
