I bought my '04 WR450 off them. Was about £1000 cheper than buying here. The guy on the phone is pretty unfriendly, but the bike got here real quick as soon as i sent the money. Make sure you have the couriers sort out any import/tax documentation if you want to get the bike on the road.

The shipping fees only cover getting it to the port/airport, not local delivery or getting it through customs. That cost a bit extra, but was still worth it.

Bought my 04 WR450F from them. saved me $1000! Went good. Zachs people skills are rough, but knowing that going it, yo'll be OK. He is a straight shooter, you'll get what you paid for for the price listed plus shipping.

I have rego on mine, but i am in the UK. Check with the local authorities about registration of imported vehicles and registration of off road bikes and see how they interact. The EU has special exemptions for bikes with more than 300mm of ground clearance.

Driving a WR450 around london is terribly stupid and impractical but really fun. People don't bat an eyelid at an R1 or a Ducati, but people see you riding an uncorked WR450 and look at you like you are nuts.
