Re: from dubai to canada??

$9200 for an K7 750 seems a bit high here. Plus you'll have to get it inspected, saftied and registered so it may be a wash. IMO, if you can sell your bike easily where you are, I'd do that and buy a new one here. I had bought my K9 750 for less than $11K OTD last Summer.

Not sure if Cali Superbike School has a Canadian outlet (I doubt it) but we do have Turn 2 at Calabogie Mosports Park, probably about a 4 to 5 hour drive from the GTA....but well worth it IMO.

Riding season here is usually from mid April to early November in most of the country. West coast is longer.

Re: from dubai to canada??

Your best bet is to sell it. Buy another after the move. Their are some import restrictions re emissions/ smog equipment that may be difficult to get around if you plan on registering it for street use. The only out for importing may be if you are in the military..

Welcome. As the others mentioned I would sell then buy here. As for tracks, you have Mosport, Shannonville, Calabogie and I believe there is another one around the Toronto area. May want to check out http://www.cherrypickerracing.com it's a popular site for Canadian road racing and track riding. Welcome again and don't forget to pack a parka.

Never done Cali Superbike ....but I have done FAST a few times. Its taught by Micheal Mercier a former Canadian Superbike Champion. It was fun.

Some of the local forums you will have when you move to Ontario are

Ontario Sport Riders www.osrclub.com
GTA motorcycles
Cherrypickers

You can also take your bike to TMP (Toronto Motorsports Park) its local and there are people there who run track instruction (Guys with Bikes I am told will be there again this year) It will be the closest track to you I believe ... or at least the most accessable as Mosport only offers a few track days for bikes every year and they are more expensive
