SWIV Riders Going to Canada

Just a heads up...
If you plan to cross into Canada before/during/after SWIV, it might be wise to get a Non-Resident insurance card from your provider. I got mine at no charge with a simple phone call to my agent and received it in the mail the next day. No one asked me for it when I entered Canada from Montana on the Alaskapade, but the border agent at the Canadian entry from Alaska checked for insurance and looked at my inspection sticker and license plate tags. there appears to be no consistency on the part of the border agents, so it's best to be prepared.

Thanks Scott, it never occurred to me I would need anything other than proof of insurance card the state requires. The knowledge of the forum comes thru again!

When I got mine, I had to tell the agent a date range, so I made it for the month of August. Simple process, send them an email, got the "card" back via email. Printed it up and stashed it in the Tour Pak.

I am planning on a single day ride thru Ontario between Detroit and Rochester on Saturday, the 9th. I gotta hit Thunder Road and Clare's to backfill some Poker Chips, even though there should be one from Clare's waiting for me at the T&C. I always get two, one to keep and one to share.

My last trip thru Canada nobody ever asked for it either. But I am sure someone would if you got in an accident, or got pulled over for doing 100 mph in a 100 kph zone.

Thanks Charlieb. My plan on the way home is through Niagra - Sudburry - Sault St Marie - Thunder Bay then back into the US

Been over the border thru several crossings , to New Brunswick and Quebec
both over the years. . Never heard of this before. Never had a Canadian border patrol officer ask for a passport until last summer either. Usually wave you thru after the firearms, alcohol and electronics questions thru the window.

I can see where this would be a good thing to have with you. Free pc of paper with pain in the ass reduction properties should something happen,all over that.

I reject your reality, and replace it with my own..
