I've not purchased in the States, but friends have. Plus some Canadians on this board. If I was buying a new Gold Wing, I wouldn't be too concerned about warranty. Especially if I lived near the border. Will your new Wing require warranty work? Hopefully not, and if I could save $5,000 or more I'd be willing to take that risk. BTW, it was explained to me that the lack of warranty in Canada is because no money from the purchase of the new bike goes into the "warranty pot" for Honda Canada. It all goes to Honda USA, since that's where the bike was purchased.Yup, looking state side. There's always the question of warranty, I'm hearing warranty will not be good in Canada if you buy in the States. I live maybe an two hour ride from the dealer in the States so know big deal. The dealer in the States says it's not that big a deal to bring a new bike across, just make Sure your paper work is in order!!
