Speedo will be in km instead of miles, other then that I don't know. Emissions may be different than a California modal. Glad to hear you weren't on the bike.

Better check if you can reg it in California... not sure if it would pass emissions for your state...

All stroms have fuel injection.

Also, it is my understanding that a bike has to have 9,500 miles before an out-of-state bike can be registered in CA (unless it was built to CA emissions).

Keep your eye on the 'for sale' ads...quite a number of used stroms come up for sale on the left coast (esp OR and WA)...if you could get one in the US it could save on duties and import hassles.

Glad to hear you're OK. Hopefully the drunk got caught and nailed with a good sentence!

The Can. model will read Metric for speed and distance(odo), you will be best off searching for a U.S. model. Oh, and it will have a cotter pin in the rear axle to secure the nut. And like their American cousins, they will also fall over at a stop if you don't put a foot down. Happy and successful searching.

It runs on coal dust, so soot can be a problem. It has made my igloo all black. The beaver pelt upholstered seat is a nice touch though, very waterproof. My model comes with CanadiaM universal health care, I'm pretty sure that it is non-transferable to CA.

Seriously, kms on the speedo and odo, and some stickers. No emission control like CA models. Just lean FI like the rest of the World. Now I gotta go feed the polar bears, and hunt a moose for dinner. The dog team is ready to roll. MUSH!!

Vee K7- no mods other than sheepskin and a Shad top box.
